Does Your Dog Share Your Bed?

                    By "share", I mean "take over completely".

What I find hard to believe is that Parental Unit insists there was a time when a dog (or a cat) did not share her bed. She was much too clean for that, and didn't want to be forced to cover up her pretty quilts and duvet covers.

My have times changed! I started out sleeping underneath the bed (a spot soon to be turned into my private man cave). Within a few weeks of my arrival, I was making myself comfortable at the foot of the bed— I didn't want to appear greedy so early in my tenure at my new home. And things just progressed (upward) from there...I soon learned those pillows that Parental Unit rested her head on are mighty comfy, and the blankets quite warm

I now hear Parental Unit wondering aloud if she should sleep elsewhere.

Given our current sleeping arrangements, Parental Unit and I  loved this New York Times piece that discussed the merits (and sometimes dangers) of sharing a bed with your dog. And if you also have a human companion that you'd like to share your bed and you don't agree on the dog's sleeping arrangements, that can really make for an interesting "discussion".

How many of you share your Parental Units' bed...or completely take it over, as the case may be?

I sleep at da foot of da bed. Momma has tried to get me to sleep up wif her, but I'll only do it when it's really cold. I like my spot I guess.

Parental Unit says she loves seeing that contented look on my face as I'm snoozin'. So she gets a benefit too:-)
