    Loves The Bed

    My dog, Gracie, loves to sleep on my bed, But for the most part, she sleeps in her crate. She doesn't sleep on my bed very often, but when she does, she really enjoys it. My bed is one of her favorite places to hang out.

    I Can't Stand An Empty Bed With Just Me In It.

    I love it when I go to sleep, and wake to find my dog snuggling next to me, as well as my cat. They don't just snuggle next to me, they lay on top of me. I feel loved every morning. lol

    I have five very large dogs.

    Two can fit on my bed at once.  If they sleep on the bed together I have to sleep on the chair.  Happens like that sometimes.  I just give up and let them take over.  Of course then they want to sleep on the chair :)

    He gets a bath more often then some humans I

    know, no joke. So if wants up on the bed, that is okay by me. But I think he prefers the floor most of the time anyway. :)

    My Dog Has Always Slept On My Bed.

    Ever since he was a pup.  He's 3 now and would die if he had to sleep anywhere else. Cuddles up against my legs on a chilly night and taps on my shoulder if he ever wants to go out.
