    Yes, but he’s a 12 lb meatball and he has a major medical condition. Also he doesn’t shed.  I could not deal with dog hair in the bed!

    Nope. He has his own (memory foam) dog bed that is at the foot of ours and he is very happy. And really there’s just not room for him…my husband is 6’2 and the dog is 60 pounds and we only have a queen.

    I would love our dog to sleep in bed with us. She’s a 50 pound but though so my husband thinks she’s too big to sleep in our bed. She’s tall and lanky so she takes up a lot of space. 

    When my husband is out of town she sleeps in the bed with me though 🙂 She actually prefers sleeping in her own temper pedic bed she has on the floor next to our bed haha.

    We have two dogs, one is 100 lbs and the other is a puppy who is already 50 lbs and who knows how big she’ll get! So no, they don’t sleep with us. They each have a dog bed at the foot of our bed. 

    ETA: here’s puppy snuggling with our cat in her dog bed

    Yes and no? Our dog is fairly small (just over 20 pounds), and slept with us until fairly recently. She’s gotten really bad about moving around at night and waking us up, so we got her a bed of her own and she sleeps next to us on the floor (on her very nice bed). Our current home is so tiny that we can’t fit a king, but we both like her sleeping with us so once we have the space for a king, we’ll probably put her back with us.

    I WISH she slept with us and was more of a cuddle bug, but she likes her space when she is sleeping. She also has 4 dog beds and loves all if them

    Yes he does! On his own fluffy blanket that he arranges into a perfect little body pillow.

    Yes, under the covers too if she wants (particularly when it’s cold like at the moment).

    She is a small dog though, a bit over 7kg/15lbs. She does like to spread out though and it can take some nudging to get to the three of us being comfortable (we have a queen).

    I think it would be trickier if we had a big dog!

    sbl99 : Haha! I love it! My almost 15 year old dog used to sleep on the bed, now she sleeps next to the bed but if she decides she wants up, I hear her and have to let her up. My fiancé and I do not live together but between us we have 3 dogs and a queen bed so on rare occasions they are all on the bed with us and it’s madness!!

    Our last dog slept on our bed, but he passed away. The picture above is of him and our cat napping together. When we adopted our new dogs- a bonded pair of seniors- we decided to have them sleep downstairs in their beds. They don’t know any different as this is how they have always lived with us. When there is a thunderstorm we do let them upstairs and they hide under our bed.

    She can. She doesn’t always. She has two dog beds (one in the corner and one at the foot of the bed) and lately she’s preferred to sleep on one of her own beds but she knows she can come on the bed.

    I absolutely do not LET him sleep with us!

    He goes to bed in his own bed at 10.30 every night, I can’t help that by 1am he’s snuggled into the blankets with me. I don’t have the heart to kick him out, and as long as he stays on my side (of the king bed) He can stay. 

    Now the cat is another issue, I don’t mind him sleeping on the foot of the bed, but 100% of the time wake up to him sharing a pillow with me.
