A shark pet bed! Not only does it come in two sizes, but ThinkGeek.com says the bed absorbs bacteria, so it's self-cleaning.

- Large is for up to 25 pounds

The pet umbrella attaches to the dog's harness or collar and opens as a dome over the pet.
I don't know how Lulu would react to this. She likes a little rain now and again, and only dislikes hard rain. If I used this she might not like the noise the rain makes on the umbrella. It's the only thing I'm Concerned about.
This is available at Amazon.com. And you can use the Amazon.com search bar to the right to search for the umbrella. If you order it through that bar, I get a commission. So please use it to search and buy.
It's called Trixie Gambling Tower. You put the pieces in various spots, and the dogs have to figure out how to get it out of the tower.
Trixie has other puzzle toys, including a roulette wheel, a mad scientist game, and a chess set.
This is available at Amazon.com. Again, please use the Amazon.com search bar on the right to search for this toy and other pet products.
A chaise lounge fit for a queen.
I have to admit, I want this one for myself. But I'd love it for Lulu or Galadriel. It's a bit fancy, but it's so gaudy it's fantastic.
It comes in more colors and even animal prints.
Order it from Petco.
