I had to fly out this weekend to attend the funeral of a lifelong friend's mom. Anyway I stayed with a mutual friend of ours who I have known for years. Typically when I have to stay at someone else's home, I have a difficult time sleeping no matter how well I know the person.

Well her one dog, Izzy a Chesapeake Bay/ Golden Retriever cross decided she was to be my sleeping pal... I slept like a baby

This also meant that little Miss Carly had her first sleep over at my work. She and Tony kenneled together and did fine as well, from the pictures I was sent, she had a good time.

So, from now on I only stay with friends/relative that have dogs that can sleep with me LOL

I actually had both of her dogs one night, Zoee is a Queensland Heeler, but when daddy was home the last night, that is where she stayed

From time to time we have overnight guests....I always laugh and say their room comes with or, without a dog.

At night....I hear more than one gust calling one of our labs.

I've actually heard of bed and breakfasts which come with reserved cat or dog. One cat is so popular the wait for a reservation is almost 4 months.

I've also seen studies which say sleeping with pets interrupts our sleep several times a night. I am used to being jumped on in the middle of the night, patted on when hungry at 4 a.m., awakened with incessant scratching, etc but when I try banishing my pets from the bedroom at night thinking I will get better sleep, I find myself lonely and worrying about them and wondering what mess I will find in the morning. So it is worth it to me. I'm guessing I'm not alone in my thinking.

No smelly dogs in my bed thank you. I don't mind the cat but my Howie just gets too dirty in between his weekly baths. He has his own bed in our room and we cover him when it's cold. He looks comfortable enough.

No offense, but most cats I deal with on a daily basis are dirtier than the dogs LOL

Have my dogs sleep with me is just like a sleeping pill.

Nothing better.
