My little baby is a 5.2lb pomchi named Cupcake and she did sleep with us for the first three months that we had her, but knowing how bad it is for dogs to sleep on the bed we finally ended up locking her in her cage at nights and it did wonders for the dominance issues she was having. That being said, she still gets to nap with us and snuggle before lights out, so she still ends up on the bed quite a bit!!

We have a 15 pound beagle named Mocha. She’s a first-class snuggler. We try to keep her on the foot of the bed but when we wake up she’s right there with us. Her happiness with being there makes it very hard to keep her off!

oh yes we (I) do!

We have a 76lb Chocolate labrador. I created a monster… when my fiance is on night call- I invite our four legged friend into our bed and she curls up like a cat next to me. And ever since then, she comes to cuddle for periods of time throughout the night.

My fiance doesn’t mind in the least. Our dog figured out she enjoys cuddling with me more than him- and thus she stays on my side of the bed. 

It isn’t an issue overall, because our dog will move from the bed to the couch (we have a couch from my fiance’s ‘undergraduate yrs’ in the master bedroom that no one else uses except for us) when she is told to. So the dog isn’t on our bed all night, and she doesnt get possesive about needing to be in the bed like some dogs. (And we have a California King- which allows each of us to have our own "zip code" of space!)

My dog died before we got married.  He was an 11 pound mini daschund and he used to sleep with me.  He looked like this as a baby and often slept like this or like this.  He liked to burrow under the covers at night, but every morning I would wake up with his little head on the pillow next to me…he was such a spoiled brat!  I couldn’t help it though, he was too darn cute with his big pathetic eyes and big floppy ears.

Yes, both of our cats sleep with us most nights.  One of them sleep’s on my fiance’s head when it’s cold (he has a ton of curly hair)–so cute!

Of course!  Our two chihuhuas might catch a cold in this weather if they didn’t sleep with us!

No dogs on the bed for me…she sleeps cozily in her bed in the laundry room. We did get her the softest squishiest comfiest dog bed we could find though…

Our cat does (although she gets kicked out of bed when she decides to sleep ON me and it gets hot) but our dogs sleep on their own beds.

Mr. Banana’s dog, Luna, used to sleep in the bed with him until I came along.

But I’m not mean!  She is a 70 pound black lab, and even a queen size bed is tooooo small for the three of us!

Yes.  We have 3 cats, Wally, Tipsy and Max (short for Maxine).  At some point in the night Wally and Max will curl up, usually around our feet.  Tipsy will sleep on the floor near the bed (she’s not much of a ppl cat) sometimes she will come up and ‘knead’ our chest if she thinks we’re sleeping.

I don’t think we could stop them from sleeping with us, even if we wanted to.  Cat’s have a mind of thier own, and unless you kick them out of the bedroom and close the door i can’t see them staying off the bed all night.  Even if we tried, Max would be scratching and meaowing at the door all night she’s very clingy to my fiance, daddy’s little girl.

Our 10 lb cat, Calypso sleeps with us (she normally hangs out curled up into one of our armpits until we fall asleep and then wanders down to the foot of the bed later). Our Great Dane puppy is definitely not allowed in the bed though, as much as we love him. He’s about 90 lbs now, but he’ll ultimately outweigh either of us when he’s full grown. I don’t share the bed well as it is! We don’t need a 180+ lb creature to crowd us out!

my FI’s cat sleeps on his chest.  we haven’t moved in together yet, so i don’t know if that will bother me (i suppose it won’t. if the cat stays on him).  my parents have a 170 lb great dane that sleeps in the bed with them.  they had to get a king sized bed just because of the dog!  she causes problems sometimes with being restless in bed or snoring!  one of my parents inevitably ends up on the couch.
