Oh my goodness Ms. Myrtle!!!!! I LOVE it when dogs are allowed on the bed/sofa etc. Those pictures are PURE LOVE!!! You'll get a kick out of this Sally, I actually had to buy a bigger bed two weeks ago for Tanner (yes, FOR Tanner). That little guy takes up a ridiculous amount of room, so now I have a king sized bed. Not that it really mattered though because even with all that room he still sleeps glued to the side of me. LOL. 

I love all the pictures, they really make me smile!

LOL Elizabeth!!! Shelby, for all her 25#, took up more than HALF of my queen size bed.... she would always go horizontal. 

Now Jasper hasn't quite figured out how to sleep on the bed like a lady (or even good bed mate) so until I am 100% sure she won't pee in the bed, it's floor city for her! Also, dumbo ears hates my ceiling fan so until it cools down, also, floor for her. 🙂

Hahaha! What is it with little dogs taking up so much room? Tanner is 30lbs and takes up way more room than my 55lb Jake did. So, Eric will kill me for this but he just laid down on the sofa 5 mins ago and he has no idea I just took this photo...but THIS is what I'm talking about. We can't lay/sit down anywhere without velcro dog. BTW, my sofa is HUGE. You can fit probably 8 adults on it comfortably....Tanner could easily stretch out anywhere he wanted on it.

Ha ha!!! He looks way bigger than 30 pounds ... he must be sooooo long!

And I'm w/you. I need a bigger couch for me and Jasper now. The things we do for our fur-babies ... wouldn't change a thing!

OMD! Love hearing about Tanner,Shelby, Jasper...and the pic of Eric and Tanner...priceless!!!

What you don't see in my picture is I've basically had to build a fortress around my bed out of chairs, book shelves, etc and leave just enough room to get in and out. On two different occasions I awoke to a loud thump! Yep! Floppy (as Alison calls her), lanky, u ncoordinated...sooooo uncoordinated Myrtle plu.meted to the floor!!!

Elizabeth, I FULLY understand why you would buy a King Size bed for Tanner!!! You are so right though...theyjust want to snuggle right up to you no matter what...and always in a way that pushes you to the edge of the bed! P ure bliss in ourr world, huh?

Hope everyone joins in with their dog and cat bed sleeping..sofa sleeping pictures!!!
