Does anyone else's dog actually sleep on them?

Newlie lies across my torso every night, his head hanging off one side of me and his legs off the other. Sometimes, he'll start off lying across my legs, but that doesn't work, he is too heavy for my knees. I don't mind it, it's just different to me, I've never had a dog do that before.

I voted occasionally. Mystique will half lay on me for goodnight kisses and cuddles. Then she'll kind of slide off and snuggle up against me. During the night, she'll roll over onto her back with either her head or legs across my ankles.

Sometimes he lays his head across my belly when I sleep on my back. But mostly when my roommate and I are going to bed, my roommate will tell Kaiju "Go keep momma warm!" and Kaiju jumps on my bed, turns a circle, and sits his butt right down on me. Silly boy.

Butters has tried to drape herself over my Mom or I on a few separate occasions, but we don't let her. Things like having her head on the lap, leaning against us, or laying back-to-back are fine, though.

And her not being allowed to lay on us certainly doesn't stop her from trying to hog the bed.

Dogsat for a friend over the weekend. Her dog likes to lay partially on you, just so a little bit of her rear or side is on top of your leg or something. Then, in the morning ,when she gets excited that your awake, she tries to sit on your chest like a cat. Nothing like a 60+lb GSD pup on your chest to make you give up on sleeping in. Of course I was given no warnings about this ahead of time...

My pup likes to play ... not the cuddling type. When I turn off the lights, and pull up the blanket, he comes and shoves his nose under the blanket for head pats and scratches. Then he goes off to sleep.

He is not allowed on the bed.

I have a few pictures of him laying on me shortly after we got him, but for the most part if I'm conscious, he wants to be played with lol. Maybe when he starts getting older he'll want to cuddle with his mom again

My Labrador lies on top of me. If I am laying on the couch her entire body is laying on top of mine.

Only one, he was a foster dog a Bully mix of some sort, super snuggly, needy and bonded to the core. My dogs are not the snuggle types which sucks because I would not mind a snuggly dog.
