I'm baffled...any ideas?
I've been thinking about asking you all if you've got any experience with this, but, think it might be specific to Tucker...but I hope not.
At night I leave the heat down. Tucker sleeps in bed with me, usually pushed up against me. The last month around the middle of the night he sometimes twitches, almost a shiver, but more like a horse twitching off a fly. If he isn't actually touching me, I can't feel it, but I AM a very light sleeper and do feel it. It's been getting down to about 60 degrees by morning.
Do any of your guys do this? It doesn't seem like it could be cold enough for him to be shivering, (although he does like the house warm when there is a fire going.) He's not jerking like he's dreaming. Allergies and some kind of weird, cyclical timing? He's got a full coat--I'm afraid a sweater or coat would mat his hair, and be uncomfortable for him to sleep in. He'd feel bad at this time if I made him sleep in his crate, he prefers the bed--and so do I!
I really can't figure this out. Don't want him to be cold, or even sick, and not figure it out. Most people wouldn't even wake up to feel it.
Any ideas, please?
Sheri and Tucker
