|Nightshirt Says How to Sleep with a Dog|
View at Amazon
My dogs, Tidbit and Scratch, slept in my bed from their beginnings, with Tidbit arriving first. She started out sleeping on my pillow above my head. She was tiny enough at a few weeks old to sleep there comfortably—for the both of us!
As Tidbit grew a little bigger she slept alongside me, under the covers if there was a winter chill in the air. Then she moved to that spot at the bend of my knees.
Of course, if I moved and bumped Tidbit in the night, she'd slide on down to the bottom of the bed. It was as if she knew I was having a restless night or dark dreams so she would lay at the foot of the bed, standing guard.
Yes, I know! I am supposed to be the leader of the pack, but in reality Tidbit was, for the most part. And she knew it and so did Scratch, and we all were okay with that fact.
I also know that some pet professionals advise against sleeping with our pets, for a variety of good reasons. (Leader of the pack issues being one of them!) Personally, I ascribe to the theory that there is not a thing wrong with pets in the bed. I get a much better night of sleep with my dogs in my bed!
