Ricky & Rusty started sleeping in their crates when we got them as babies, but now sleep with me since I am sick, they can sense that & go tell Daddy that something is wrong, so they sleep with me. Ricky(Toy Poodle, white with apricot trim) sleeps right nest to met & cuddles, but Rusty (Shiapooh, rusty color and I suggest the best dog for anyone with children) would rather sleep away from people but in the bed with you. They have been very supportive emotionally through my illness. Dogs are Gods blessing to us empty nesters. Hahaha

On the floor on its mat where it belongs. Furniture is totally off limits to my dog.

My dogs were crate trained and have always had their own spaces. Now that they are older they have a large pillow 3ft - 6 ft in the bedroom. About 9 pm the old man of the group will go up on his own. Because we are young people my husband has to yell for him for final walk. Once the walk is over they fly up to the room and lay down! They never bark at night or etc, because they are with the pack!

Missy [American Eskimo] sleeps on her back in my arm with her head on my left shoulder OR on wife's pillow wrapped around like a horseshoe.. Maxwell [Sheltie] sleeps in between us....crosswise....head touching one....tail touching the other...that way if EITHER of us wakes up for a bathroom break in the middle of the night, Max knows and can wake up to escort us....since he seems to think we can't get back on our own.

The three frenchies sleep in their individual crates, but they would sleep on our bed when we're reading. They snore loudly. That's their way of saying they're happy!

i have 4 saint bernards who usually want to sleep with me, and they do and then i end up getting squished between them durning the middle of the night because they want to squeeze as close to me as they can and sometimes during the summer months they tend to be a big winter blanket and it gets too hot under ther fur for them to be sleeping with me and then they get up and move but during the winter nights,im pretty much sleeping under them and even thogh their fur is getting too long for me to sleep comfortably, i tend to fall asleep before i notice because sometimes their fur covers my head and face, so i get fur in my mouth and nose sometims, and then when i wake up i sometimes have fur in my mouth and nose, but more then one time their hair got really long and ended up touching the floor and then they would sleep with me and their hair would cover me. after i fell asleep and tossed and turned a little, i was literally wrapped from head to toe, (im only 4 foot 4 inches due to a birth defect and the dogs are 5 foot 3 inches when standing on their hind legs) in a cocoon of dog hair by the next morning and getting out of that wasnt that fun, lots of very restricted movement, (my body, hands and legs sometimes got caught in one or more knots and the more i struggled the tighter it would get) struggling and squirming with that.
