Thanks, Anne-marie! I am trying to sleep that way but the first few weeks of the colder weather are always a bit of an adjustment for me. I love having them...and they are excellent at keeping me warm...but the limited movement is tough. I swear a small dog is harder to move in bed than a big one! And last night, Hank decided he was going to sleep in the MIDDLE. I'm pretty sure he nailed himself to the bed cause I could not get him to move. lol So the cats and I slept on the left side! LOL What I do for my babies!

Hi Shellie

I'm so happy to hear that Hank is doing so well. Don't you love it when you can't roll over because you have 4 inches of bed before you'd fall out?!?

Yep...nailed! Less than twenty pounds of IMMOVABLE dog. It's probably a very similar effect to the one where cat's feet weigh five hundred pounds and are like pointed stakes when traveling over a human body in bed. I'm thinking we have variable gravity fields I'm not aware of in my bed. (should I even call it MY bed?)

Hugs!

What I love is when my husband wakes me up in the middle of the night to move all 20# of Ruby. Probably comes from deap seated fear created from whenever she would spew her dinner if we ever moved her at night before the megae was discovered. Still can't believe that took us so long and that I was the one who figured it out with the help of another forum...but I digress.
Lately if I have to test Ruby in the middle of the night I switch beds with my son so I don't wake up Jim. Then me, Ruby and 80# Maggie are squeezed on a twin bed, and I am a lot of pillows person. It must be hard to see me in the middle of all that. I love it though because in the winter when no one acknowledges that Maggie is cuddling is the only time she will do it.

Ruby curled up by my front, Maggie curled up by my knees. Love it! My version of the Ying and Yang symbol.

Casey always slept in bed, we had queen sized. We'd put a pill˘w at the bottom hoping she'd stay there,but nope. If Joey touched her or even moved during the night, she'd growl at him. For some strange reason he was scared if her (she could be a b****) even though she never bit any˘ne. It was all night long. She took up the whole bed! She didn't like to be bothered when she slept but was the best, sweetest little girl.

So, so glad hank is better. He can sleep wherever he wants. gees, you'd think you'd have the courtesy to give him he whole bed and sleep elsewhere, but I'm sure he'd be there too, lol.

So glad that Hank has his 'pep in his step' again...YAY....nice to know he is progressing each day.

I think this time of year for us cooler weather folks has all the dogs heading to the bed and 'their' space...Shadow has been asking to get up on the bed at night (my bed is way high, I even have a little step stool to get in it), so he needs a lift...LOL...and he lets me know when he wants 'up'. He tends to camp out also, usually right where I would like to stretch my legs out to, but I just go on either side of him
