    I grew up with my childhood dog always sleeping in my bed so I find it very comforting to have the dogs sleep with me now. Usually they start off on the bed then in the middle of the night just down to lay on their dogs beds but by morning they seem to have made their wasy back and I usually have to force them out of bed to go to the bathroom before I go to work.

    Before DH, my dog slept with me- I always wore pajamas.  When I got DH, he said no dog in the bed, and now we sleep without pajamas- now I can’t imagine a dirty dog in my bed.  Also, we are so desperate for our sleep- there really isn’t space for a giant dog.

    Sometimes – Our dog chooses where she sleeps most nights (so long as she isn’t touching DH – he gets too hot).  Sometimes she sleeps near my feet and sometimes she sleeps under our bed.  Where ever she is in the mood for I guess!

    I’m sorry, you have the question backwards.

    It should read: Do you sleep in your dog’s bed.

    LOL my dog owns my bed.

    Unfortunately yes, we sleep with our 95lb Boxer. Fiance had our dog before we met so he was sharing the bed with Fiance before I even showed up.

    No – our last dog, 15lb yorkie, slept with us and DH HATED IT!!

    So when we lost Cody in Dec. and got a new puppy (Lab) this January he does not sleep on the bed or go on any furniture. He was crated at night for the first 5 months but now he sleeps freely in our bedroom at night, usually right next to my side of the bed.

    No!  The bed is the only place we’ve kept firm on our golden retriever puppy NOT going.  He occasionally puts his front paws on it and reaches over to us, but he gets yelled at. 

    When he’s doing jet dog (running around all crazy with energy to burn) he has occasionally jumped on it, but it lasts a second and he’s off it because he knows he’s not supposed to.

    I’m so glad we stuck to this… he’s just 6 months old and already HUGE and I can’t imagine trying to sleep with him in the bed with us 🙂

    Our dog is way too big for that. There’d be no room for us. Especially not that my snoogle has joined the bed…

    I love my pupperoo and there are nights when I want him in our bed and snuggling, but we’ve never allowed it and we’re trying to resist giving in to those puppy eyes.  When we had a cat, we let her sleep in the bed and the thing literally took up more space than another human being and she was only 10 pounds.  Also, she would lick our faces or walk on us at 3 am.  The pup wakes us up as it is by licking himself and he also barks and runs in his sleep – it’s hilarious.  The 3 of us in bed would mean not a whole lot of sleep for me and DH.  But pup has his own bed on the floor right next to me that he loves.

    Nope, our dog sleeps in a dog bed in our bedroom. We have room, our bed is clean all the time and everyone is happy.

    Our Scotty usually starts the night crammed between us (Im pretty sure he is the only dog in the world that is loved more than he loves us. He just tolerates us, he is so good lol) and either he ends up on my legs or if my restless leg syndrome is kicked into high gear he jumps down and wedges himself under the bed. I dont know why he doesnt just sleep in his bed, he can barely crawl under the bed.

    Our Cairn is still a puppy and not fully potty trained so she sleeps in a crate in the other room. She takes small naps with me and does good, just wish she could hold it all night long.

    No they don’t, but they sleep in our room.

    We have three large dogs so with all of them in the bed it would be too much and there would be no room for us. We have three huge beds that are on all sides of the bed. haha and they sleep there.

    I love my dogs in my room, I can’t imagine that ever changing. When I say Nigh Nigh they go straight to their beds. lol Love them.

    We have two cats, if we forget to close the bedroom door at night, they will find their way onto the bed. Usually they sleep between my feet or if I am sleeping on my stomache one of them is sleeping on my back. They leave the Fiance alone though, until 6:30 when it is time for their breakfast, they know he is the one that will get up and feed them.

    Yea, I think my dog may die if I don’t let him sleep in the bed. He has his “buggy bear” and sometimes I throw it on the floor so they’re not both sleeping on my head. Well, he jumps down to rescue buggy, and then whines because he is too lazy to jump back up. His whining could go on for hours, so I just give in and plop him up again. He’s the weirdest dog ever, but I love him so much 🙂
