Where Sleeping Dogs Lie

Sleeping With Dog In Bed, Sniff Seattle Dog Walkers

I’ve had dogs my whole life, and they’ve almost always slept in bed with me.

I can still remember being five-years-old and sleeping with my Collie, Penny. I had a twin-sized bed and she was bigger than me. But there always seemed to be plenty of room.

Over the years, I’ve had several different dogs ranging from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane. Having them by my side at night, especially as a single girl, has always been comforting.

Funny thing is, it’s always seemed that the big breeds take up less room. I remember having plenty of leg room and space to roll around with those big dogs in bed.

But now with a small Pug, I almost feel like I’m sleeping in a coffin! He likes to plop down right on top of me, as if that’s his spot for the night. It’s not. I move him to end of the bed. But somehow, by morning he’s right back in the middle, pressed against me, practically pushing me off the bed.

I think it has to do with Pugs and their “over-sized” personalities. Any Pug owner can tell you, their little dog has to be the center-of-attention! And that’s one of the things I love about Pugs the most!

And picture this. Now that Parfait has joined Stewie in our family, it’s everything above…times two!
