We have 2 cats (Bongo and Bear) and 1 dog (Theia), a Saluki.  Theia sometimes starts the night on the bed but soon gets grumpy when we move and gets off onto her own bed on the bedroom floor (well it is my bed and I will move if I want to  :tongue2: ) – she is allowed on for morning cuddles though, she lies in the crook of OH’s legs and rests her head over his thighs eyeing up my half – she usually jumps in it as soon as I get up!

Bear is usually quite an aloof cat but she races me upstairs to have a bedtime cuddle whilst I read for a while, or until Bongo comes in all ‘demanding’ (she’s very much a lap cat/mummy’s girl!) and sits on her head to make her move and get closer to me – then I’m stuck with Bong for the rest of the night and usually wake up with her face next to mine.  Bongo and the OH snore too, I’ve spent many a night nudging them to make them stop so I can get to sleep… wouldn’t have it any other way though  :D

Last week's QI (Stephen Fry and co) said how bad it is to allow dogs on beds.  We can't fight off doggy infections so well.  Will probably still take the risk though.

Our dogs sleep on the bed with us  ???  I swore blind that I would not let any dogs on our bed after our 2 old JRT's passed away.  Stupid me in thinking that  :blink:  so our bed is shared with a Westie and 2 JRT's all just coming up for 3 years old.  We are actually considering getting a larger bed lol  :nowink:

Our two (a border terrier and a flatcoated retriever) are 'supposed' to sleep in their beds on the bedroom floor. Invariably the wee one jumps on the bed in the middle of the night and snuggles in - this isn't a problem. The problems arise when Harley (the flatcoat) thinks this is a great idea and you wake with a paw landing on your stomach - he's promptly told to get off... then goes round the other side and gives OH 'slurpies' on the face - at which point I have been known to chortle quietly.  ::)

Badger is only allowed upstairs to catch mice ( which we had in a bedroom one night )  !!  Could not sleep with him on the bed mainly for the reason of being allergic to him ( although that has diminished greatly) and he also quite often seems to be chasing rabbits in his sleep!!!
