Theresa's Mixed Nuts: This Bed Is Your Bed, This Bed Is My Bed....

This Bed Is Your Bed, This Bed Is My Bed....

Our dogs have pretty much free reign over the house. The only rule I have ever had was no dogs on the bed. We tried letting our little pug sleep with us a long time ago, and let's just say Bed. Hog! I wasn't willing to even try with the boxers. Allison decided to break this rule and let our female, Adrian sleep with her a few months back, and that's all it took. She now senses when it's about 9:00, and patiently waits for the door to open. And when it doesn't, she scratches and cries at the door waiting to have access to HER new bed. And when I say HER bed, I mean she really thinks it's her bed!

Look at her, laying center of the bed, giving off this "What? I'm being generous here! Allison still has a smidgen of bed left!" look. And now Allison has learned that when you break the rules, you deal with the consequences. Good luck trying to get your bed back now, kid!

Do you share the bed with your pets?

  1. Nope, I'd never do it... I wouldn't even keep pets inside the house. My cat rules the yard.

    1. You would let my Mongo in.... I'm sure. You would have some tea together and gossip about, well.... me.

  2. Awww, that is so sweet. Our dog goes into his kennel at night - otherwise god only knows what mischief he would get into while we were sleeping.

  3. ha! I did when I was a kid, but she was just a 6 lb. teeny, tiny. The pictures are funny!!!

  4. That's so funny! I don't have pets, so no I don't share my bed.

    I don't think my parents ever let our Pit bulls that we had when I was little sleep with them. They were just so big.

    Even when the boys were babies my husband said, "No!" to them being in bed with us. I would sometimes sneak them in because he wasn't the one feeding them at night. I was. I was tired. Anyhow we only had problems breaking the bed thing when Mica was in the hospital. He was used to us being in the same room as him, and sometimes sleeping with us when he was in there. When we got home he expected the same treatment. It took a week, or two to break him of that. Generally my kids are pretty good sleepers though.

    1. We let Mariah sleep in our bed when she was little and it took us forever to get her out. I refused to let Allison in with us, other than when she was really sick or when it was thundering or power outage, since she is terrified of both. When my niece came to live with us, it took us about 2 weeks to break her of sleeping with an adult because her mom always let her in the bed. I value my sleep too much to have little feet kicking me all night!

    2. That's how my husband feels. I actually wanted them to cuddle sometimes...but he didn't want them to. It does get to be a hard habit to break.

  5. She scratches and cries at the door waiting to have access to HER new bed? Story of my life. Only it's me who's doing the scratching.... That's what you get when you get to sleep on the couch.

    1. Surely Bollywood Princess doesn't make such a handsome Blue sleep on the couch!? You must snore like a freight train ;)

    2. Of course he does, why do you think he had to soundproof the bedroom? So that the neighbours wouldn't sue him :PP

      Delete
    3. And to think he tried blaming it on his neighbors! Hahaha!

  6. Wow, I love the new look of your blog. So calm yet so glitzy :)

  7. Aww I love the pics. My daughter is allergic to dogs so we don't have pets.

  8. Yes, I always have and I always will!! Of course I make sure to have a queen size bed and my then dogs did give me a tiny sliver pf room--amazing how they can stretch out! Both the cat I have now and my cat who is over the rainbow preferred the end of the bed--I guess I toss and turn too much for them! It doesn't bother me the least and if someone human happens to be staying over--it is either the coach for them (the human) or SHARE--my babies have always made room for just one more!!

  9. What cute pictures. My friends are always complaining about the dogs taking over the bed. I don't have any pets.

  10. When I was a little girl, I would let my dogs get on my bed. Now that I am an adult and actually see and understand where their feet go and everything else that is gross, no. They have their own bed. Of course, we have a big dog.

  11. These pictures are so cute! We have kept our new bulldog in his crate so far at night. I am scared he will fall off our bed and get hurt! Plus he was already crate trained and we didn't want to mess with a good thing!

  12. Her expression is funny. She was waiting for the photo shoot. That diva dog!

    ReplyDelete
  13. That is so cute. We can't have pets due to allergies and asthma. If we could, you can bet they would be snuggled up with in in our beds. I used to have a mini schnauzer growing up - loved that dog!!

  14. That's adorable! She definitely thinks she rules the roost! All of our cats think the bed belongs to them. I swear they try to push me off into the floor.

  15. I interpret that look to be more like 'Can I HELP you?'

  16. We did share our bed with out oldest dog, but he started to take up too much room haha now he sleeps in the crate with the other 2 pups... we still have the 16 mo in the bed so it was too crowded!

    ReplyDelete
  17. So cute! Our cat usually sleeps with my middle son, but sometimes he comes in our bed. My husband usually ends up squishing him when he rolls over though!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow she's totally tucked in! I can't stop laughing at the second picture. That says so much about her personality.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I had three birds but each had his/her own cage. Once I had 12 Gerbals... don't ask.

    1. So true, Ai! I sometimes think kids can be bigger bed hogs than the dogs!

  22. I don't let pets sleep on the bed. I have to say your pics are way to cute. Dont give mine any ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  23. There are too many people in my bed to have any room for the pets. Since our dogs are smaller, they can't get up on the bed. They have free reign over everywhere else.

  24. Such sweet sweet pics! I hope you save these for your girl's wedding!

  25. My mother in law has boxers and they are the biggest babies ever! I think they think they are little dogs because they want to sit on your lap and cuddle! haha

    1. They certainly do think they are lap dogs! I don't know how many times my legs have been crushed because they want to curl up in my lap! :)

  26. OMG!! I know this all too well! Leia and chewy our pits are bed hogs!! I don't always mind because I love them but some times it's like 'Ugh, Just go away, there is this thing called a floor' so I totally get it, but I have to admit, your daughter looks so cute with her dog. I totally adore those photos! Great Memories!

  27. This is so adorable! My kids want a dog so badly, but I'm just not sure yet (I really want one too though!) lolol

  28. Real tears because I know the pain. I love my dog but I refuse to let him sleep in my bed. This is too funny

    ReplyDelete
  29. My cat sleeps with me. And is quite upset if I move during the night.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't have pets any longer but when I did, they slept in their crates and loved it. That was their place to get away when they wanted to be alone.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I actually do not let my dog on my bed. I just feel weird about it because I am a little OCD. I wish I wasn't that way, but I am.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How adorable that your pooch and little girl are snuggled together. I think you are right though, your doggie is a bed hog. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. No way would I share with our golden retriever. He's just way too big for that! Luckily, he prefers his crate at night.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That second picture made me laugh! The dog looks so smug. Our Labrabull sleeps in bed with us. She's a bed hog too. I usually have to lay in the fetal position because she feels she has to lay dang near right on top of us.

  35. Try having two big dogs in bed with you...lol. A wonderful picture Theresa!

  36. I love to see those photos :)...well, now Alisson has to deal with Adrian :p..I don't have pets here but would love to have one back home :)

  37. Aw, too cute! We have a cat and yes, he sleeps in bed with us. More challenging with cats than dogs, I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is so funny to be reading this today. I let my dog (who is only 23 lbs!) sleep with me in my KING SIZE BED last night and I was teetering on the edge! He somehow took up the whole thing.

  40. haha bed is now hers, no one she's letting that go.

    I shared with our lab as a kid but she never got under the covers. Now I share with two cats and for such small cats they can sure hog the whole damn bed.

    ReplyDelete
  41. nope, my dog would ruin the mattress. Her pet beds don't take long before they stink like dog, and are covered in fur.

  42. OMG your dog is too cute. I'd have a hard time saying no to that face. We are getting puppy and I won't be able to resist I'm sure.

  43. Aw, that's so sweet. Our dogs aren't typically allowed on the beds, they sleep in their own kennels at night.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh so cute! Absolutely, though my dogs were my babies since I had none of my own. My Yorkie when he was alive, had a collapsible trachea, so he slept in my bed in case he needed revived. No kidding I had to give him doggy CPR twice, thought he was a gonner. He's been gone now for 11 years and still miss him.
