My dog has his own bed in the hall, and he has a pillow in the tv room, and another pillow near the kitchen, he loves to have pillows everywhere, he even carries his favourite pillow when we are watching tv, so he can sleep in his pillow beside us while we watch movies, but every night he sleeps for a while in my sister's bed and another time in my brother's bed, and during the day while my sister is working he loves to sleep in my sister's bed, he even takes off the cover so he can lay his head in the pillow like a human! but i dont let him sleep in my bed, because he moves a lot, and he scratches himself sometimes, and also he snores really loud, like for example now he is sleeping in the hall and i can hear his snore! hahaha, also i dont like him to sleep in my bed because my bed is too tall for him, and everytime he wants to go to sleep somewhere else, he barks at me and wakes me up and i have to lift him and put him in the ground, so i prefer to leave my door shut all night, and then in the morning he waits for me at the door , and he kisses me and wags his tail and runs to the kitchen, its his daily routine we always say good morning to each other hahaha, you might think he is very spoiled, but my dog is 13 years old, so he has a lot of routines ,and we do spoil him because we love him a lot, but i read that when dogs sleep in the top of the bed its because they think they are the alpha dogs or the leaders of the house, so be careful with that! hahaha

No, my bedroom is my bedroom. Love my animals but absolutely not. As a child used to have a great dane called Ben and he used to get on the bed on the inside next to the wall and literally push me out. It was funny then but I will not allow it now

No. I do not like to sleep with a dog or cat, because I have my life partner who could bare to share the love with animals. Pets are not created for this purpose. Pests should sleep with pets and human bodies should sleep with human beings. But there is also a law for this purpose and that is the law of marriage. You can allow only your legal life partner to sleep with you or your real children and pets are not like children.

It's a pity that this experience put you off cats. A cat always has a reason for biting or scratching and it's usually because you are doing something that they don't like. It's the cat's way of telling you to stop. Of course, a child will not understand that and thinks that they have been bitten or scratched for no reason. Sadly the parents might also think that and will dispose of the "vicious" cat that has attacked there darling child. Anyone who keeps cats expects to get scratched of bitten at some point, I was stroking one of my cats a few days ago and not paying much attention I was surprised when she suddenly attacked my hand and I ended up with a bite to the back of my hand and four or five deep scratches to my hand and wrist. She'd had enough of the petting, but because I was not paying attention, I failed to realise that and got my hand savaged as a result. She is one of the rescue cats and the other one will also bite with little warning and I have to be careful with her also. She did have a problem with fur matting and skin problems which made her back painful so she did not like to be touched there. I've now got that a lot better I'm pleased to say with cutting out the clumps of matted fur and combing. But she certainly did not like either operation and would lash out at my hand.

I also have a little "Teddy Bear"! She will run into my room jump on my bed and nudge my arm! Do you know why? Because she expects me to lift up the covers so she can run under the covers and snuggle beside me!!! LOL Just kidding! I love her sleeping right beside me or on my legs! She is just thinks she is a human and needs to be under or have the covers on her!

Yes, my puppy sleeps in my bed. She is a minature dog, not a big dog. I don't think I'd share my bed with a big dog. This little dog takes up alot of room as it is. Generally she sleeps at one end. She's a shih poo and they don't shed so I don't have to worry about her hair ending up all over everything. She also several beds all over the house so she can be near me where ever I am in the house.

Every since my cocker spaniel got to big for her current kennal we have been letting her sleep with us. She likes to climb up on the headboard and sleep there. lol. I have NO IDEA why. That just seems like it would NOT be comfortable! But you can't keep her away from there. Thats where she wants to sleep. I would like her to sleep in her own kennal once we get a bigger one though just because she likes to wake us up in the middle of the night giving us kisses. lol. My mom has slept with her 2 year old chiauhah ever since she was a pup.

I have a german shephard. He is too cunning. Never around if you need him. But when he needs to play or eat. He will be rolling around me with a grin meaning "Hey, wassup brother". And at night he will be the first one to jump in my bed. He sleeps on his bed hardly once in a week. But i love him. and he is my buddy, my brother.:)

Our spoiled rotten chihuahua named Charlie sleeps with us in our bed. I don't think we could keep him out of our bed if we had to. He does a good job of keeping the other two dogs out of "his" bed, though, even though one of them is too big to be in the bed. The other is a puppy, and there is no way he is getting in the bed without him being trained completely. Charlie gets out of bed when he needs to go, but the puppy most likely would not.
