Up at the lake, Jasper spends the night in bed with me. Danny tries, too. But there is only so much room in a double bed with two big dogs. So usually I ask Danny to get down and he does. Until Jasper decides to get down and immediately Danny will jump up.

At home, they play musical beds (dog beds) all night long. I just today had carpeting laid in the hallway and our bedroom where we used to have laminate floors. I could not sleep through all the click, click, click all night long.

I get annoyed if they get up and walk around- it wakes me up. Sometimes one will get a drink, that's okay- but if they walked around a lot it would irritate me. I have never had a dog that would leave my room at night, they want to be with me. Rig sleeps in the bed. He changes positions now and then, and RARELY will get down and sleep on the floor if I accidentally roll onto him in my sleep or something lol, but he gets back up ten minutes later. Epic sleeps on a dog bed on the floor, and he never moves at all... or in a crate, same deal. Francine isn't trustworthy, she sleeps in a crate.

I keep my two in my room with me. Fergus starts on my bed, moves to the bathroom floor then ends up on his bed by morning. Lily mainly stays on her bed, but occasionally moves to the wood floor if she gets warm.

the Pud either sleeps next to me in my bed all night, snoring softly on her pillow next to mine (I know, I know...) or she starts the night in her big psychedelic flower armchair and then moves to my bed toward morning.

She's always in my bed when I wake up. When she thinks it's time to get up, she puts her nose right next to my ear and sighs and breathes in a very afflicted manner. She wants to make sure she doesn't miss that magic moment when I softly murmer, "okay", upon which she explodes out of the bed wagging and laughing and begins to order breakfast.

Mama misses her Pudden terribly, but she knows there's nothing she needs to regret. The Pud and Mama did everything they could have done together. We missed no opportunities, nothing remained undone or unsaid between us.

Roxy sleeps on our bed, on Jonny's side usually. He rarely has any covers when I inevitably have to get up in the middle of the night, and is usually clinging on to the edge whilst Roxy sprawls comfortably. She stays there until we wake up the next morning.

Fred sleeps in his crate, and I'm not sure if he'll sleep up with us in the future to be honest. I don't know why but Roxy was never happy being left down stairs at night when she was a pup, but Fred is perfectly happy. If he's happy down stairs, and it means we get more bed space he'll probably stay there.

Crockett sometimes gets up on the bed with us at night. we play and or fall asleep. If we fall asleep and forget to put him in his crate, Illl wake up and he'll be standing by the bed looking at me as if to say, I'm ready to go to bed now. He goes in and I close the gate. If I dont close it He eventually comes out and stands by the bed again. If I dont put him in the crate he will sleep on the floor but not peacefully like in his crate

Finn starts out at the foot of the bed. Then, after about an hour he gets too warm, hops down, and goes to his own huge chair by the window. Tango starts out on her dog bed but sneaks on to Finn's place at our feet the second its empty.Tally snuggles as close to putting his head on a pilliow as allowed and stays there, conked out, until 5 amish when breakfast occurs to him and he starts his face-kissing campaign. If ignored, he jumps off the bed pitterpatters down to the kitchen, and then patters back to the bed to plunk his dish on a person. It is very obnoxious but cute.

Emmy sleeps at the foot of the bed on my side. In the winter she may move between my husband and me. Gambler starts on the bed and then gets on the floor and later comes back to the bed. It is cold now so we'll see what he does in the summer.
