    where? aside you? at the edge? pepe on the edge sometimes next to me on the other pillow, princess likes to sleep on or inbetween my legs (and sometimes she uses my butt as a pillow :eek::yikes:), didi next to me.

    do you see yourself still sleeping with your dog(s) if and when you you have to share with another being?

    depends on the person, not sure about ALL the time, but with a king size bed, i dont see why it'll be a problem with 3-4 dogs, problem is if they're going to be next to me or on the foot of the bed or something, messes up the cuddle factor :p

    Yes Max slept with me.

    Twin

    how many dog(s)

    Just Max

    where? aside you? at the edge?
    He laid out beside me on the side away from the wall, I was sandwiched between him and the wall.

    do you see yourself still sleeping with your dog(s) if and when you you have to share with another being?
    Assuming the other guy didn't mind yes I do, but the dog will have to be invited in case we want to be together dog free for a while.

    yuppers!

    how many dog(s)?

    anywhere between 1-3. And one of our cat sleeps in the bed too.

    what size bed do you have?

    queen sized bed.

    where? in between the two? at the edge?

    Tiku sleeps stretched out along side DH or curled up at his feet, Mochi sleeps up by my head (sometimes I spoon him) and we share the pillow. Kena sleeps between my legs, using my bum as a pillow or stretched up in between DH and I. The cat sleeps down by my feet.

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs?

    Oh yeah! We both love the dosg in the bed. And if he wasn't, I'd kick him out of the bed. The dogs are better company--- and they don't snore!
    :D

    No, I am married and my husband does not allow the dogs to sleep in the bed with us. The only exceptions were when they were young puppies and we just got them when they would wake up during the night I would let them snuggle with me so they'd go to sleep easier.

    We have a queen size bed for just me and my husband but if the dogs did get to sleep on the bed they'd probably be allowed on the foot of the bed. If our dogs were smaller I don't think my husband would mind them sleeping with us though.

    Fozzie does... Gonzo will get up on a bed if he's invited, but he likes to sleep on his dog bed, alone. I guess he likes his own space.

    what size bed do you have?
    Queen

    how many dog(s)?
    2... but only Fozzie actually likes sleeping on the bed.

    where? aside you? at the edge?
    Fozzie likes to sleep next to me, with his head on the pillows, under the covers, like a person. ;D Either that, or he curls up at the foot of the bed, after dragging a pillow down there.

    do you see yourself still sleeping with your dog(s) if and when you you have to share with another being?
    Yes! If they don't like it, they can sleep somewhere else. hehe

    No. Sometimes we let her sleep on the bed, but it is not an everyday occasion. I'd say maybe once a week and mostly on weekends.

    how many dog(s)?
    One dog.

    what size bed do you have?
    Queen.

    where? in between the two? at the edge?
    She sleeps in between the two of us and takes up more room than me.

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs?
    Yes.

    I can actually answer both of these, as I am in a long-distance relationship!


    For couples:

    do your dog(s) sleep with you?
    Yes, most of the time

    how many dog(s)?
    three, but Ronin usually gets squished so he sleeps on his own bed, and Ada is sometimes banished to her crate because she likes to do cartwheels on the pillows! Ilsa is always in bed though.

    what size bed do you have?
    It's (too) SMALL - it's not a standard size, as it is a futon imported from Japan. It's close to a twin though.

    where? in between the two? at the edge?
    When he can tolerate it, Ronin is on the pillow next to me. Ilsa is smack dab in the middle, under the covers. Ada is wherever she fits, or chooses to flop over. (which means anywhere, her favortie place is right on top of my bladder in the morning!)

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs?
    yep!



    For singles:


    do your dog(s) sleep with you?
    yep!

    what size bed do you have?
    see above - it's still small, but A LOT bigger without a 6'5" person in it!

    how many dog(s)
    two, but they're the big'uns.

    where? aside you? at the edge?
    Same places - Ilsa in the middle under the covers, and Ronin next to me on the pillow. Only difference is that he stays the whole night when it's just the three of us... ;)

    do your dog(s) sleep with you? No.... not until I trust him in my room, which I don't. Too many bookshelves at the perfect height for destroying books and his sad affinity for peeing on beds if he has to go...

    what size bed do you have? single. soon to be queen.

    how many dog(s) 1

    where? aside you? at the edge? When I do nap with him, he pretty much crowds me into a ball or I spoon around him and he lays with is head on my face or hip.

    do you see yourself still sleeping with your dog(s) if and when you you have to share with another being? Depending upon the dog, yes. If other person can't deal with it they an get the hell out of my bed.

    what size bed do you have? Queen

    where? in between the two? at the edge? When he did it started at the foot and as the night wore on it was ALL OVER!

    The whole lot.

    how many dog(s)? Three.

    what size bed do you have? Queen

    where? in between the two? at the edge? I don't live with my bf but when he's over Bandit will not let him sleep beside me and I like it like that. I sleep the best when Bandit is beside me. Spanky sleeps snuggled up to Bandit, Miley sleeps cuddled up to Spanky and he sleeps beside Miley. Mwuhaha. Im awful.

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs? He hates it so much but he tolerates it. Which means a lot to me because not many would.

    Yep! They sleep with us on the nights that we're off, but not during the day (we work nights)

    how many dog(s)? 2

    what size bed do you have? King

    where? in between the two? at the edge?
    Porkchop sleeps with Paul- usually wedged against his stomach or behind his knees. Luke cuddles up to me when I'm on my side, and moves to my pillow beside my head when I flip to my stomach.

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs?
    We're both happier with the pups in bed

    For couples:

    do your dog(s) sleep with you? It depends -- my husband works nights and if I want someone to cuddle with I will let them sleep with me. Typically, they always sleep in their crate. Kai would never get out of our bed, but Brawt will often get out of bed and go to his crate because he gets hot.

    how many dog(s)? 3 Mini Dachshunds (11 week old puppy is always crated when sleeping)

    what size bed do you have? Queen

    where? in between the two? at the edge? They both have to be touching someone. Kai will typically lay right in between my husband and I and will NOT budge. Brawt likes to curl up behind my legs up near my butt.

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs? Yep. My husband never had a pet growing up and when we got our first dog it was all over. His attitude started out as, "it's just a dog". Now they all three have him wrapped -- they bark and he ask how high? It's cute to see him with them and see how much he loves them all.

    We would if she wished to. But she prefers to sleep on the floor, underneath the bed, directly beneath me.

    how many dog(s)?

    One

    what size bed do you have?

    Double

    where? in between the two? at the edge?

    She would never be allowed to sleep between us. There's something controlling and manipulative about that. Same with sleeping at the head of the bed. She could sleep at the foot or the edge if she wished.

    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs?

    Dogs, cats, doesn't matter to him as long as there is room. The cats do sleep on the bed, when they feel like it.

    Beezer likes to try to sneak right up the middle but usually they will curl up in the middle at the end of the bed.... which then causes a rift in the blanket and leaves us with our butts hanging out of the covers.... it SUCKS.
    is your significant other okay with sharing the bed with dogs?
    Yes... it is me that always kicks them out when my butt gets cold or I don't have my required leg space lol
