Sleeping with our fur babies

How do you do it? I can't go to sleep with Lilly in bed with me. Plus I worry about her getting up during the nite and going potty. How do you havi parents do it? Who does do it?

I was just wondering, is there a reason you want Lily sleeping with you? If you don't like it, then I don't see why you should do it. LOL. I personally don't like sleeping with Kubrick all night. Mostly because he tends to move around a bit and he does love his crate so I don't see the reason to put him on the bed with us. He does sleep with me in the mornings for 2-3 hours (after my fiance gets up to go to work and takes him out of the crate and onto the bed) and on the weekends for 3-4 hours. It works great for us!

Your routine is pretty much the same as ours. It isn't that I want her in bed with us (I move too much) but she wants to. I am going to continue putting her in her crate at night I was just curious how others did it.

You'd faint if you saw our bed. There are 3 havs and one standard poodle in it every night. The 50 pound standard poodle likes to be a jokester and will lay sideways across the bed until we tell her to knock it off and stop hogging the bed. Bandit loves to swipe my pillow or at least share it. Last night she had her head on it when I went to bed and when I laid my head on the other side, she went under the top part of the pillow which caused my neck to go weird so she was told to knock off her funny stuff and get back up on the top of the pillow with me. Ellie and Lightning usually have to be touching me. Lightning loves to curl up to the back of my knees and Ellie has no problem sticking her hind end in my face. Lightning used to sleep on my chest, but when he grew up he got too heavy for that. Ellie will still play billy goat and stand on my hip. As you can see, my dogs have a sense of humor

Okay I posted the one before but my husband was teased about these photos... so this is how our girls sleep (Belle is smart and gets the highest spot in the bed... my butt!). As you can see, we have a dog pillow that usually either me or my husband ends up using! The girls only sleep on us sometimes but usually pick right in between us. If I could do it over, I would like to say I would have them have crates but waking up to fur snuggles and wet tongues is priceless!

LOL there isn't much this forum doesn't talk about. The dogs know the OFF command and they say we do it all wrong and get bored and fall asleep on the floor until they're invited back up.
There's actually a lot of room left on the bed unless my standard poodle is in a mood and wants to lay sideways.

Amanda those are such cute pictures. I had to stop the dogs from laying on top of me. My knee really got messed up when Ellie slept on it all night. I must have had my leg in a bad position to start with and the pressure just did it in.

OK...There is four of us in a bed. Seamus has steps so he comes up and down (the weather is getting colder so he is in our bed more than his). The eskipoo has slept in our bed from a baby. Luckily the lab sleeps in his own bed!
