    I'll be honest after they baby was born no dogs slept with us for awhile I was super against it because the babys bed was in our room at the time. I wouldn't even let them sleep in the room. They actually moved into our closet for bed time (door open but gated in, the closet is the size of the bathroom its huge) but then Trouble started having a hard time again so we moved him back to bed with us. Mostly so we could keep an eye on him. He got to be better again or so he seemed so he slept with us nearly 3 months until his death. Somewhere in there we moved Sashas bed back to our room.
    Since Trouble's death Sasha has moved to our bed, and against our wishes. She started sneaking up in the middle of the night, her bed is next to ours. And honestly I just didn't make her get down. But she is super long and likes to stretch out. But she is now getting the idea that she sleeps at the foot of the bed not up with us. As long as she continues to sleep at the foot of the bed I don't mind her sleeping with us. But if she starts to take over the bed again like she used to she will not be sleeping with us anymore. For me personally after losing Trouble it helps having her in bed.

    Gypsy always sleeps with me. She's slept with me since she was nine weeks old, and she always has since.

    Sometimes Marsha sleeps with me, but since she seems incapable of learning that you potty outside, not inside, she sleeps in a crate most nights.

    Mexi and Umah sleep loose in the living room on dog beds, Hoss is crated in the kitchen.

    The girls sleep on the floor most of the night, but I get husky ball snuggles in the morning. It is most excellent. :D

    I'm babysitting the Ridgebacks right now. Lynley always sleeps on the foot of the bed and has since he was tiny. It was fun sharing a twin bed the past two nights, since he's almost 90lbs. :D
    Chicago usually sleeps under the covers with his momma, but I've been making him sleep in his crate or on the couch because he guards the bed and gets possessive of me. He still gets to sit in my lap when we watch Netflix instant watch though, as long as I invite him. He is so funny. :D

    Cats sleep on the bed too.

    only one dog sleeps with me. Used to let the puppy sleep with me as she was VERY good at not pottying on my bed, and waking me up to go out, but she needs to learn to get used to her crate before she outgrows it and starts getting used to a chain. GSD, likes to punch me in the face in her sleep, and i wake up with either a fat lip, a black eye, or a loose tooth. lol so shes not touching my room anymore.

    Jersey prefers to sleep in Nero's kennel, I move around too much for her, Nero loves to sleep with us, he's in bed a lot since we work separate shifts we sleep alone a lot, if we are together sometimes he'll get put in his kennel. Both dogs jump off the bed if I so much as give them "the look".

    Harley would love to sleep with us, and did the few times we let him but our current living situation doesnt allow us to have a bed larger than a queen and there just isnt enough room for him on there with us. Hubby has no problems with it at all but thats because Harley sleeps on MY side where MY feet should be leaving me cruched up and sleeping horribly lol. When I take naps durring the day though I will let him up with me about half the time. He is one to try and help himself to the bed if I let him up to often and I do not like that (he would never get off! Just last week he spent 5 straight hours on our bed -and I feel bad when I have to crate him when Im gone HAHA I shouldnt!-

    Hes very good at communicating that he wants on the bed though(he isnt allowed up when he begs but its still adorable) Just last week I was laying down and suddenly I hear him moving around and get that feeling that Im being stared at. I knew it was Harley so I didnt open my eyes and after a few minutes he lets out this loud moan to which I finally open my eyes and hes right infront of my face ears up sitting there staring at me. Once he saw that I opened my eyes me moved down by my knees stretched his head as far onto the bed as he could (but still keeping all 4 feet on the floor) and he stared at the empty space on the bed behind me for a few seconds before coming back to sit infront of my face again. I just laughed because he couldnt have been any clearer about what he wanted, he didnt need words for me to understand completely, it was great

    I like my dogs sleeping with me. It makes me feel safe. :)
    Right now though Daphne (miniature schnauzer) is the only one that sleeps with me all night. Dolly sleeps in a crate because I can't tolerate her shedding in the bed and Samson starts the night in the bed but usually after I'm asleep he gets in the floor in his own bed...
    Here's a couple pics I took of him the other morning knocked out. lol I thought they were cute.

    Same thing happened to me LOL. I always used to let my Cane Corso sleep with me because my BF was away all the time on business. When we tried to fit all three of us Thor would lay on my boyfriend, push him to the side, take his pillow, nudge him and do anything else annoying. Now he sleeps outside the bedroom door:( The dog still pretty much considers himself my boyfriend though.

    Bully and Lucy sleep in their crates downstairs when the hubby is home. We tried having them sleep on the floor next to our bed...but Lucy has to check out the house once/twice at night and it would wake my husband up. When he's gone, they get the bed with me.
     
  14. As of now yes... butters is only 3.5mos old & tiny lil thing so she still sleeps curled up next to me every night. It helps when the hubby is on nights. Now when she gets bigger it may change (but i doubt it) lol

    I will consider it once they stop putting meth in puppy food. Cats sometimes sleep in the bed until they get too annoying and then they get booted from the room.
     
  16. Its easy for me to house break them if they sleep with me for a lil while so i do let them for a short period of time and at the same time she still has her own bed that she uses. just my two cents:D

    My dogs aren't allowed on the furniture, especially not the bed. I hate sharing a bed with my boyfriend, no way, I am sharing it with the dogs. lol.

    LMAO SO TRUE!!!! I guess thats why I dont mind when Bella jumps in the middle!

    She waits until the sun comes up then jumps into bed with us because she knows one of us is about to get up and free up room for her to stretch out. Otherwise she does not like sleeping in the bed because all 3 of us can't be comfortably stretched out.

    Red has slept with me since she was 6 weeks old. I hate it. She moves and wakes me up all the time and it just is uncomfortable anymore. BUT I feel terribly guilty if I make her sleep on the floor(on a dog bed) so she still sleeps with me at home.

    Judge always sleeps on his bed, right by mine, sometimes he jumps on my bed in the morning bt not very often.
