Dogs and Cats sleeping in your bed
 
I thought this was going to be an article saying it wasn't a good thing, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I love this article :thumbs up Its refreshing and unbiased. It talks about the pros and cons of sleeping with your pet and lets you make your own choice, i love it!

We dont sleep with Jeremy. He has his own bed in another room, as recommended by our trainer.
The only times he sleeps with us is if we are travelling. I love it though. He is so warm and snuggly and let me hug him while sleeping :lovestruck: although he does take up a whole lotta space...

Monkey sleeps with me 80% of the time, depending on his mood i am guessing... he likes to sleep 'on' me or snuggled right next to me :cloud9: but he gets cranky if i try to move and may try to 'hold me in place' by slowly taking out one little clow and digging it into my leg... :frustrated: so i try not to move.. :o

we should have a poll :lightbulb:

Well in my bed I have the following:

CATS: Blu, Riley, Dooby, Phoenix, Farah. Riza sleeps in the bathroom sink.:frustrated:

DOGS: Julia under the covers, Spike (my foster) at the foot of the bed. Maddox on his bed on the floor.:frustrated:

BOYFRIEND: Fits in somewhere if a good boy. His doberman and anatolean shepard sleep on the floor on their beds.:frustrated:

REMEDY: Get a double king size bed and then we will all be happy....especially me!:) (oh and remove the sink in the bathroom to force Riza to snuggle).:thumbs up

I have only have one cat and she seems to go in phases with hogging my bed. Sometimes she'll go weeks without hopping up on my bed, while other times..she has to sleep in my bed. She loves to sleep on the couch at night..but sometimes she snuggles up to me and then hogs the bed lol. I do miss her purring when she is not in bed with me.

Well, I'm not sure they don't disturb our sleep, but they [I]do [/I]all sleep with us. The disturbance is usually not bed-related, anyway--it's those midnight alarms when whatever wildlife is passing through triggers the Pack's hair-trigger detection system. :D

Sounds like my dog, Connor. He goes through phases. At the moment, he's taken to sleeping between my boyfriend and I in the bed. However, last week, he was on the couch all night. Hahah. Depends on his mood I guess!

How do they all fit!? Hahah. Connor takes just as much space as me and he's only 10 pounds! :laughing:

You haven't lived till you've shared your bed with almost 400 pounds of dog. :cloud9: :laughing:

I have....gets a little crowded at times...and yes when they hear something outside...one woof and they are all up and wanting out to investigage......

Well Clark is a real snuggler he likes to be under the cover and must be touching some part of you. But since he is having problems with his hips and cannot jump on the bed right now he sleeps in his bed which I moved beside my bed. He looks at me like please can I come up but I can't lift the little pork chop. I am hoping the vet has some news for me I took him for xrays just waiting for the vet to read them he was not in when they did them. I am hoping he has just pulled a muscle and it is nothing more serious. Funny Bud who was suppose to be the one with hip problems never had them.
Hazelpack I understand the 400 pounds of dog thing well

Heh, I've always got at the very least 2 on the bed, but most of the time I've got all 5 on a queen bed. Kiska has taken to sleeping next to my pillow. Czari will sleep with me holding her in one arm. Maks sleeps against my left side, and only my left side.:laughing: Vlad will sleep either between my legs, on my shoulder or on my pillow. Oksana will usually sleep in the closet at the beginning of the night, but them wind up on the bed on my right side.

I love feeling them against me. It's hard for me to sleep unless at least one of them are with me.
