Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

They both start out there. My wife doesn't mind it, but I kick them off when I come to bed. I get too hot at night to tolerate a couple of extra heat pumps.

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

Yes, she usually asks permission first, then curls up by my feet. Sometimes she jumps off during the night, sometimes stays there all night! Ususally stays curled up, but occasionally I wake up scrunched up next to hubby cause she's taken up most of my side of the bed, lol! I enjoy the closeness of having her on the bed.

She either sleeps on my bed or in her crate. It isn't that bad since she's only 45 pounds

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

Oh heck yeah! Just...not under the covers, only on top. I like my clean sheets too -g- Gotta love a furry buddy snuggled up. Down to just the Husky now but he sleeps wherever he likes.

But the poster that has the waterbed made me laugh. As an older teen/young adult, I had a queen size waterbed with no 'baffles', so very wavy. My large male GSD at the time, Bijou, figured out that if he came running into the room and pounced on the unoccupied side of the bed, he would either give the bed occupant a fright, or even dump them off onto the floor if they slept right at the edge of the bed.

I know I really should have corrected him...but darn..made me laugh till I got teary every single time, how could I....

Happily owned by:
Lads (Alladin's Folly) Red Husky (rescue)
Chester the cat (humane society)
Mags (Teeny Tortie Siamese runt, too "old" to be sold at 12 weeks)
Mocha (Chocolate Siamese) At the Rainbow Bridge, I'll always miss you.

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

I wish! The GSD likes to sleep on the floor beside the bed or in front of the bedroom door..he's the guardian. He wakes up at every little sound too and will go on "patrol"

Our pittie is the only one who loves to snuggle and cuddle in the bed with us. My Boyfriend works night shift so it's nice to sleep next to Karma so I'm not so alone. Karma will get right up against me in any position and go to sleep. Brings me comfort.

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

Yep, I have a California King Sleep number bed, and she has the other side and her own sleep number too (not too soft, not too hard,) just right. Next to me. (Im single) She's only 5 mths. sleeps all night through the night ever since I got her. She use to sleep with her nose in my ear... not anymore, she's growing independant. (SUCKS!)

Lead by example. Integrity is doing what is right even when no one is looking.

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

my dog will sleep at the foot of the bed or on my GF's side of the
bed. we can call up on the bed. he rarely stays there all night.
my GF didn't want him on the bed. my dog knows hand signals so
i would wait untill the lights were out and my GF was settled nad i would signal him to jump on the bed. my GF would always ask me did i signal him to jump on the bed. i always said no. she never believed me. my GF doesn't mind him being on the bed now. she actually calls him to jump on the bed.

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

Hope slept on the foot of the bed her first month out of rescue, then she slowly stopped it and now always sleeps in the living room.

Kaya my new rescue is a foot of the bed dog I believe, I have a feeling she might always be. Nicer that she's smaller.. Good foot warmer.

Hope still comes in every morning at daybreak when it's time to get up to jump on the bed and wake me up, or curl up on the foot of the bed and wait me out if I don't get up.

Nope - allergies and space are the issue.

Re: Does your dog sleep in your bed?

The bed is the only furniture my guy is allowed on. He'll jump up there, usually in the morning, and lie down for a while, but he never stays long. In the winter time when the house is cooler, he does seem to enjoy the heated mattress pad, but he never stays for long, which is just a well because when he does stay he seems determined to s-l-o-w-l-y stretch out until I wake up hanging on the edge of the bed for dear life and he's splayed out on the rest.
