In the bedroom. Usually one of them sleeps on the bed with me. Wassim by choice, Trin only if he has already claimed her favorite dog bed. Robyn will sleep in the bed during the day but rarely at night. Her chosen spot is on the hardwood floor wedged into the space by the door, go figure!

I don't trust anyone to be free range. Robyn would eat anything remotely tasty, Trin would try eat any unsuspecting family members who were wandering around and happened to scare her and Wassim would wail his lonely little head off! I get more sleep and wake up to less stress if they all pile in with me.

She has free roam of the first floor. There's no gate to the upstairs or anything, but she was taught early on that her domain is first floor only. She's supposed to sleep in her bed or wherever on the floor, but we all know that she sleeps on the couch as soon as we go upstairs. And apparently since I went to school, she's taken to coming upstairs in the morning when she feels that it's time to get the day started.

I voted "other."

Picked other because all three of mine are different.

Auggie sleeps on the bed, most often with his head on the throw pillow next to my pillow.

Payton starts on the bed, then jumps onto the floor and sleeps down there - sometimes in Auggie's bed (Auggie doesn't use it anymore obviously except in the mornings or evenings for a nap), sometimes on HIS bed, sometimes curled up next to Pepper's crate, sometimes on the bare floor by the door. Most mornings he jumps back into bed with me to cuddle and doze for the last hour or two.

Pepper sleeps in her crate. Plain and simple, LOL.

Nat, StiXxX & Zellie sleep in our room on their beds. Every so often, StiXxX will hop in the bed us, but not with any regularity.

Kaia sleeps in her crate in the kitchen. We tried to let her sleep in the room as well, but she chewed up Nat's dog bed and was using StiXxX's as a toy. One day...

We have a combination. Squash and Maisy sleep in crates in the bedroom, and Pip is loose in the bedroom. Usually he starts under the bed and moves onto the bed in the middle of the night.

We keep the dogs in the bedroom so the cats get the rest of the house totally dog-free overnight. And there's just too much dog for everyone to be loose in the bedroom at night. Pip has the best bed manners, so he gets the privilege of being the loose one.

All sleep in the bed with me. They aren't allowed to get off the bed except for Kaylee.

Recon sleeps in his crate, Sir sleeps in our room in a doggie bed (sometimes on the bed) and Frag has free roam of the house.

I answered other since they're all very different. haha.

Gwen sleeps in her crate in the animal/music room. Charlie (the cat) is put in there with her.

She wakes me up at 6 am if we let her sleep with us. And she hogs my side of the bed.
