Good Night Moon

Five of our dogs sleep in the bedroom with us. The four little girls all sleep in their crates downstairs and Tsar likes to sleep in the front hallway. I do catch him snuggled up on the couch some mornings but he starts out in the hallway.


We have three dog baskets, three flat dog beds and assorted pillows on the bedroom floor. There is also an easy chair and a hassock.


We bought this huge stuffed dog for Noah to cuddle up with.


Noah doesn't get a chance to sleep with the big dog. Morgan likes it.


Samba likes the big dog, too. She starts out the night on our bed sleeping across my feet. She gets too warm and gets down to sleep on the tile in the bathroom. Toward morning she gets back on the bed beside me.


Morgan usually sleeps in a basket, but if there's a storm in the area, she gets on the bed between Rob and me for protection.


Noah starts out on the floor at the foot of the bed, but soon gets in his basket for the night.


Sky starts out in his basket, but he gets warm and moves into the bathroom to cool off on the tile.


He also likes to sleep on the hassock beside the bed.


Fudge likes to make himself comfortable on the bed. He wants to sleep in the middle of the bed and doesn't think he should have to move to the foot.

When I make him get off, he sleeps where Monty used to sleep, on the floor beside my side of the bed. I think he's taking over Monty's job of protecting me.


Or maybe, it's just easier to get back on the bed when I'm not looking.

Those are great sleeping shots!
I love to sleep on the floor, but I´d like to try mom and dad´s bed sometime!

What a beautiful moon.
I love the idea of a giant stuffed dog. I wonder if Ginger would snuggle up to it or if the cats would take over.

You guys are lucky! At least you have your own beds. Star always has to lay all over me. She is such a pest.


Luv ya,
Riley and Star.

We don't have a dog bed for Thor, because we want to encourage him to sleep wherever we are. Sometimes that makes standing up out of my TV watching chair difficult (I sit on my feet). He too moves to the tile floors if he gets too warm. And I think Fudge's new nighttime post serves both functions you mention quite well!

I love sleeping with my Mommy every night. Mommy says I am an attachment to her in the morning. All of the doggies look really happy.

oh little sweethearts, with you in the bedroom, my hubby won't let snuffs sleep there, but when there is a thunderstorm we have her with us as she is terrified and won't sleep in her own bed. aaaw your little family are so very precious.

Oh, such great pics!!! We have two crates and two big round beds. We stay in the kitchen at night because of the security system and motion detectors and all that crazy human stuff. But we do seem to like our simple sleeping arrangements.

woos, the OP Pack

Just wondering if you two get much sleep! It is nice having them close though.

What a great post! I hope you have a big master bath for all those dogs to cool off on. Both girls press against me most nights, and we fall asleep in a big snuggle. The Knight runs hot, so the dogs have all quickly learned he's not a good snuggler. Maybe I'll blog more about our sleeping habits later!

It seems you can learn so much about the individual personalities of your dogs just based on their sleeping locations. What a cute post.

A lovely picture of the moon a great shot. What a happy contented lot they look too, Bonnie has a bed next to ours but she always sneeks on mine later in the night, I hardly know she is their because she is small. best wishes Julie.C

We have just read Thor's comment and thought it is perhaps just as well that all you dogs dont sleep in the bed with you!!!
My husband moans about the number of dog beds we have but I will show him your post!
Loved the snuggly toy shots!

What great sleeping shots! And the moon was superb.

We never get to sleep on Mom and Dad's bed. Piper and Carrleigh sleep in crates and Java and Lilly share a big bed. We are all in the bedroom with Mom and Dad.

XOXO

great snoozing shots! I wish my pawrents let me sleep in their bed, but I don't think that's ever going to happen! Love the snuggling stuffy!

So sweet that they all have their routines. Emma always sleeps with me, Tara sleeps with my sister, and fickle Cooper goes back and forth. The best part about it is that Emma hates being cold, so in the winter she sleeps under the covers. It's like sleeping with a 45 lb. hot water bottle!
