I don′t know about your dogs, but mine does not sleep on a bed. It′s a privilege that happens a few times a year - on special occasians, such as birthday. But when she does sleep on a bed, she is the best behaved and contented dog ever. ;)
Photo is not the best of quality, because it′s taken by telephone.

I thank you for the comment about my girls as 'book ends' but they don't usually sleep on the settee, Jas sleeps on my bed with me, she sleeps on her own side with her head on the pillow, she knows when she is well off, and this is every night!!!!!!

Lovely picture Kristina and happy bitch.Difficult to say what is right what not.They should be dogs at least during the night,but it is not easy to leave one alone as they are sooo happy with us and they make us sooo happy!Anyhow not dogs for EVERYBODY!...or better to say for very special people!

If you view my pictures, then you'll see that my dogs sleep on 'their' couch most nights, but usually venture into our room in the early morning and wake up with us. Sometimes it can get a bit crowded, but they usually try to stay at the end of the bed, and work out their positions.

Must say my husband would prefer that they stayed on their own beds, but I 'love' them coming in and when he gets up, both girls come closer to me for their morning cuddle. Just the way it is in our house. Wouldn't have it any other way.

Lynn, from Oz.

My dogs have always slept beside my bed. Except for when my youngest had the shunt put in her liver they had to cut through the sternam and wire her together. I was told by the Professor at the University she was to be kept quiet for 3 months. Oh my God I said "you have to be joking, she's an irish setter that's impossible. When she came home she went straight to my bed & wanted to get up. My vet said she would feel very secure there & it would aid her recovery. The older girl automatically jumped up and put her paw on her, and watched over her the whole time. They didn't play, they just slept & ate it was remarkable to watch. Now the older one sleeps by my bed & the younger one sleeps on the other side of the bed, head on the pillow, & as soon as I wake she gives me a very gentle tiny lick & they both just wait & watch me until I move to get up. Then its on for young & old!! Runs, playing, breakfast, more playing.......sleep. They are great time keepers if I am working too late they let me know its time to go to bed. I wouldn't have it any other way they are my faithful companions & I theirs.

Hi Di.
It’s great if you have bed that’s big enough for one or two dogs to sleep on it, including you. Mine is just not big enough. Unforunatelly for Flora.

My four children sleep in bed with me 8two dogs and two cats). I've put a bed for Maggie next to mine ecause it’s impossible for her to climb up and down from my bed. So The Five & I sleep together in the bedroom – Love it!
