Our dogs normally start on their pillows in our bedroom and sometimes will head to the futon in my office or onto the bed in the spare room.....except for Reno...once he's alseep, he's asleep!!!

Dusty is 9 months - almost 10. I can't WAIT till he doesn't need to be crated. He's smart as a whip but STUBBORN as an ox. I always say he is book smart but has no common sense - haha. So he CHEWS things if he wakes up in the night and realizes that he has free reign. He just doesn't get it that when he DOESN'T chew he DOESN'T get crated.

Ranger goes to bed usually 3-4 hours before I do and he always goes to sleep in his dog bed in the bedroom until I'm ready for bed. When I turn out the bedroom light, he gets up and waits for me to give him the "ok" before he jumps up to sleep on my bed. He'll sleep there all night unless I move around too much, at which point he jumps off and sleeps on his bed for the rest of the night. So he only has two spots - his bed and my bed.

Candy sleeps by me, before i go to bed. Once I go to sleep she come in and lays down, then I hear her in the middle of the moving around in the bedroom.
So, I have to say 3 times.

When I'm going to bed, my dogs usually sleep in or around the bed, sometimes getting up to get a drink or look out the window and just patrol the house to make sure everything is alright, but they always return after a few minutes.

If it's in the middle of the day and they're taking a nap, they'll sleep anywhere close to me, usually the couch or under my feet if I'm on the computer.

My bridge golden, Cody, would sleep smack dab in the middle of the bathroom floor. I'd wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom and trip over him, one time smacking my head on the toilet seat! I guess he preferred the cool tile on the bathroom floor.

My pet peeve: when a dog is laying in the hallway and don't budge when they hear you shuffling down the hallway. I had a basset hound who was so stubborn and wouldn't move, even one time when there was a sonic boom!

Sophie is with us until we go to bed. Then she sleeps with us in the bed. She takes up my whole side, pretty much. My husband actually likes it, 'cause it means we "have" to snuggle! I wake up in the morning, she is glued along side of me, either with her head on the pillow or stretched out on her back with her legs all akimbo.

Soda spends the night laying on ceramic tiles in the front hall -- must like the coolness. Very early morning she will come up on the bed to sleep for a couple more hours.

When I'm getting ready for bed, Charlie comes and gets into his bed, a trundle bed next to my bed. The minute I turn the lights out and settle in bed, he immediately gets up and leaves the room to lie in the hallway facing away from my open door. If I was to walk out my bedroom door, I'd trip on his butt right on the door frame. No interest in facing me. Haha. It is a cool tile floor. It's like clockwork and always makes me chuckle. I have NO IDEA when he comes back in, but I've never woken up in the morning and not had him back on his trundle bed (on his back, legs sprawled open, fast asleep--- he's not a morning guy). Then I go get ready for work. When I come back he's fast asleep in his kennel, which is in the hallway near where he starts the night. Sometimes he'll sleepily shuffle into the kitchen and sleep at my feet while I have breakfast, but many mornings he stays asleep in his open kennel. Getting him to go out and potty before I leave is the tricky part. My dog just doesn't do mornings!

Murphy slept on the foot of our bed until she was about 5. Then she started sleeping on the bathroom tile because it was cooler.
