    1. I agree .both of our small rescue dogs sleep with us.we love them to bits ,they’re cleaner than most people n we wouldnt have it any other way??

  1. We bought a king size bed because Hoss took up so much of the bed but now he just stretches out even more than he did with the queen size

  2. I do sleep better with my dog in the bed. Sometimes she does wake me up in the middle of the night to go potty. But I’m thankful that she does. She’s a good girl.

    1. Maybe you should consider brushing your dog on a regular basis. That usually helps with the hair “problem”

      1. Yeah buy one of those hand brushes and every night before bed give em a good cleaning they love it.

  3. My dogs sleep in bed with me. So does the cat. And I love it =D I have a day cover on it and I change sheets every week. That way hair isnt really a problem. I love waking up with my furry friends 🙂

  4. I love sleeping with out dogs, but I admit it affects the quality of my sleep. I wake up many times a night because I’m being pushed, scratched, stepped on or shoved to the very edge of the bed. We need two king sized beds.

  5. We had 5 small dogs in a full size bed at one time. Don’t think 3 90# dogs is gonna work. They LOVE their crates. They let me know when they’re ready for bed and their afternoon naps too!

  6. I’m sure its not at all good for my allergies and asthma but my rescue dogs, Padfoot and Mahoney, saved me life when I saved them. They sleep where they want…which is in my king size bed. When I’ve been in hospital, I’d cry the entire time cause they weren’t sleeping by my side. They’re my world and spoiled rotten.

  7. I have a queen size bed. Somehow even though I have two tiny chihuahuas, I always end up balancing on the edge, lol! Can’t sleep without them, they are my best buddies in the whole world.
