    My mom likes it when me and my sister, Copper, get on the bed before she gets in. This way we get the sheets nice and warm. Even when mom and dad are in we get to stay and hang for a while. Lately they've been putting the heating pad on my hips to help ease my discomfort. Is anyone else used as a bed warmer?

    My dogs aren't allowed in my bed. However, Benji is a good couch warmer. :D

    Kharma is the best bedwarmer, lol. She takes up approximately the same amount of space I do.

    Heck, yeah. Buddy radiates heat, I love it.. especially since he usually gets under at least one blanket. Oo0oo warm!!

    Bella curls up into this amazingly small ball and does nothing for warmness, I'm thinking of firing her. :p

    Banzai can keep it warm as well, but he loves his bean bag and doesn't normally sleep on the bed. :)

    Yep...Flicka is one of the best bedwarmers! She'll stretch out and lay right next to me...

    Pepe is good for snuggling on the couch...but at night, he'll either lay on the foot of my bed, or on the loveseat in the bedroom...so not too terribly good for warmth...

    Oh yeah, with several jrts, they are awesome bed warmers and they all have their spots under the covers where they cuddle up.
    lol grab a blanket and head for the sofa, they patiently wait until you are settled, then they line up, each has their spot.
    Now Hailey drives me nuts.........she comes up to your head, waits for you to raise the covers and starts under........BUT she stops half way in and just about level with your face and then she FARTS. She doesn't want to stink up HER air under the covers but sure doesn't mind stopping us from breathing for a moment or two!!!!!!!

    Milo's too small to do much. He's a nice foot warmer, though.

    Of course.... LOL! :D

    He always waits till I'm under the covers and rudely tackles me, sneezes in my face a few times, snorts my hair up his nose, jumps off the bed, and then hops back on it. That's our routine. :rolleyes: Then he either gets under the covers with me (which, while veeery warm is NOT appreciated because he takes up more room then I do) or or curls himself up somewhere.. usually in the crook of my legs.. and sleeps. Usually through the night, thank goodness.

    I sleep with all three of my dogs (and sometimes the cat if she graces us with her presence) for that reason. They keep me nice and toasty.

    Dekka and Snip are great warmers, they both sleep under the covers. They might be small, but they throw a lot of heat!
