On the bed next to me - and I haven't had to use the electric blanket since she came to me :jump:.

Fortunately, she doesn't snore, but she does sprawl out on bed leaving me little room!

Maddy sleeps in the sitting room in her very comfortable bed :) We leave all the doors open & about 6am she joins the cat on the end of our bed :lotsaluv:

Jassy sleeps: under my bed, on his own duvet in my bedroom, on the sofa in the lounge, in the crate in the lounge, the floor in kitchen, on the dog mats on the computer room floor and on my bed if I am not in it. Basically it is up to him where he sleeps night or day. He is one sleepy dog!

My two each have their own crate on my side of the bed. Sometimes Minnie will bunk in with Cara if I'm not quick enough to close Cara's crate :wggle: Every morning they have snuggle time in our bed :hug::hug:and I sing to them :D

Our 3 have baskets in our room, but it's not uncommon to wake up in the morning, with someone having sneaked up onto our bed :rolleyes::slp:

Pixie used to sleep with us. My three kids have their own rooms, so the kids would take turns with her. If it was someone's night with Pixie, and that person fell asleep before someone else, then Pixie would get "stolen" by whoever managed to stay awake. I never knew what bed to find her in! She had her favorite spot with each kid. She slept with her head across my youngest daughter's neck. With my son, he slept on his back, and she'd sleep in the V of his legs with her head on his knee, and she slept against the back of my side-sleeping daughter's knee. Then, of course, I'd go steal her from the kids when I went to bed! She slept back-to-back with me.

Bandit sleeps in his crate next to my bed for now. He is so active, I'm afraid he will fall off and get hurt. He starts off upstairs with me and the kids as I tuck them in, and sometimes he will fall asleep up there while I am spending time with them. Hopefully he will be able to sleep with us as he continues to settle down. I do want him comfortable in his crate, though. It will be easier if I need to have someone else care for him if I am gone somewhere. I had never had to leave Pixie overnight with someone else, but worried that the day would come, and she'd be distraught.

DJ and Cream

Both of our pups sleep on our bed.

Cream starts the night sleeping at the foot of the bed then migrates up to sleeping on my pillow. She's so close I can feel her breath on my face!

DJ also starts at the foot of the bed but she usually ends up on her back. She's funny in the way she scoots on her back all the way up to the pillows; then she snuggles into my right arm and rests her head on my shoulder for the rest of the night.

They are very much creatures of habit and do the same routine every single night!

Emma splits her time between my bed and her crate. Jenny is still a work in progress so she sleeps in her crate ..... and snores and snores and snores!

I need a bigger bed.

I have the voice of an Angel :badgrin: Of course you can come live with us - but we'll have to crate train you..............:rotfl:

Mine are generally crated on the landing, sometimes if I'm home late or up late I sleep in the downstairs bedroom in which case they bunk in with me. I woke up this morning to find four dogs and three cats in bed with me, they were all spawled out in the lap of luxury while I was practically being kicked out of the bed. They were still snoring almost two hours after I got up :rolleyes:

Mika ususally starts out snuggled up to my legs. By morning, she is always up, snuggled in to my side, butt to butt with the cat. She and Tiger the cat are finally at the point where they will be close, although never more than butt to butt.

Maggie started out in her crate. But now she sleeps with us, along with our Chihuahua Chico. We are getting a new Cav puppy in a couple of weeks. We may need a bigger bed!

nemo usually ends up on top of my head in the bed. :eek:

16th September 2008, 11:05 AM
Amber sleeps in her crate in the living room at the moment, though she likes to sleep under the kids beds :)

16th September 2008, 12:04 PM
bundled together on a big bed in the kitchen!! they all lay on top of each other it is so cute the bed is so big and they are in one corner of it!

Casey is a hot-box, so she usually sleeps on our tiled bathroom floor, although she gets up on the bed at around 6am (she uses her new steps!).

Ollie sleeps in bed with us. My hubby was never fond of this because he always ended up between his legs, so I put his dog bed at the foot of the bed inbetween us, and now he sleeps on his bed, on our bed, all night long.

My 2 are crated downstairs in seperate crate mainly till my wee one is fully crate/house trained :) Never had an accident yet in her crate :)

I would like them to sleep upstairs but my kids have loads of toys,lego bits,and i couldnt trust my puppy not to chew/swallow anything.
But my cat sleeps upstairs on the end of my bed.:p

Our Chesney sleeps on the bed, in the middle between us on top of the duvet. Snores to high heaven, and periodically sleeps on my wife's head, before retreating. He did stay downstairs for a while but somehow he's wormed his way in with us.cavtiny

Hali sleeps in an enclosed play yard used for babies complete with all her things. It is open during the day and closed at night. In the winter, this set up goes into our laundry room because it is much warmer in there.

Riley alternates between his bed, on the floor, and cuddled up with me. He starts out with me, and when he gets hot, down the step he goes only to come back once or twice a night to warm me up.

My husband has given up on the idea of having an undisturbed night as Riley meanders over his feet a few times. Myself, I can't sleep without a dog close.

Maggie sleeps on a cushion on a chair next to our bed. In the morning, I pull the chair close enough so she can jump on the bed, at which point she usually curls up on hubby's pillow and falls asleep with her chin on his forehead..lol

16th September 2008, 10:27 PM
my puppy has a basket in our room which he uses sometimes. . . otherwise he sleeps on our bed, but thats getting rarer as e has discovered that there is a whole double bed in the spare room which no-one sleeps in !!!

So he pretty much has his own bedroom . . . and his own double bed

:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

Cavvies ain't daft are they?!?!

Gosh I feel like such a cruel mum now, listening to Claire with her singing and ste with his bedfull :D
Both of mine sleep in crates in the kitchen.
Dougal has slept in his crate since we got him, and likes it. He retreats in there sometimes during the day. Dora we didn't try to crate when we got her first because she was nervous and we didn't want to force her into one but she started barking during the night quite a lot so we bought her one to see if it would help. It did. And she loves it. She's constantly in and out of it during the day. It's like her little safe place.

Of course I'm not all bad. They get cuddles in bed after wee time every morning. :D
