Let Sleeping Dogs Lie

Just a quick update on the dog sleeping arrangements. Since Tessie’s spay operation a week ago, I have been letting her sleep on my bed, so as to keep a closer tab on her stitch-licking proclivities. I was surprised after the first night when she slept the full night through, instead of clamoring to go out in the middle of the night. Was it a fluke?

Well, it’s been 7 nights now, and while she has gotten up twice (once after falling out of bed and waking us both up), the other 5 nights she has slept till it was actualy time to get up. Hallelujah!

While I’d prefer she sleep on a pillow or dog bed next to my bed, I’m thrilled to be getting (more or less) a full night’s sleep. Whatever works, right?

  1. Yay, I’m glad you’re getting more rest :o) What’s a little dog on bed gonna hurt…

  2. Definitely whatever works! Besides, doggie snuggles can be very comforting…

  3. Hey, as the song goes, whatever gets you through the night…

    For some reason, Bloglines has not been updating your feed in my reader. Today I got your post from Dec 31. (I have no idea what’s up with that.) I clicked over to check things out and bam! realized I’d missed like 3 weeks of posts.

  4. Yep, with the little dogs you can do that. I shudder to think what it would be like to have the 140-pound Rotty in the bed with us. And the cats. And the kids.
