So I don't have any of Jasper Lily since she has peed in my bed (more than once) so she's on a bed ban ... and it's odd, I don't really want her up there. Shelby was my snuggle-saurus! And Jasper has no real interest in  being in the bed, yet.

But Shelby, from DAY one, thought it was HER bed. No matter where we went, she was on the bed ... and when I had a boyfriend, she was still in the bed... usually right in the middle! 🙂 

New Orleans ... feather boa queen! 

Toys in the bed (and fluff) 

Even on vacation, she was on the bed!

Even on vacation, she thought it was her bed. 

The caption on this last photo from my FB page was: Flipping psycho! "Bat dog" brought a dozen toys into bed tonight. Is it a full moon too? The earlier crashing was short-lived. If I didn't know better, I would swear she had a Red Bull today.

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Tonight, Miss Adelaide is right next to me with 2 toys and Aissa is at my feet. Only one cat, Morrigan, is up here so far. I never sleep alone and I wouldn't change it. May be why there aren't any other humans sleeping with me. :P

Adelaide is a young tripawd Husky, from an injury.  Her amp was on 10/1/12.  She has 4 sisters, Aissa (a senior border collie/chow), Maggie May (a puppy Great Pyrenees), Mathilde and Morrigan and 1 baby brother, Bagheera.  We are all watched over by our angel Brendol, who was dx with OSA 1/30/13, amp on 2/6/13, and left us on 8/20/13.

Well, well, well.... look who got to sleep w/her madre last night?!? After a rough day at daycare in which 'someone' may or may not have gotten her a$$ handed to her, I put her up in my bed and she fell right to sleep... and thankfully, no pee pee this a.m. the alarm went off and she shot up like a bat out of hell! :-)

I'm sure the little scratch on her face (you can see it, it's red right where the corner of her mouth meets) is nothing... and she's feeling/acting 100% fine so I'm trying not to be all 'crazy mom' about it! As Karma told me last night... kids play, kids get scratches ... kids heal! 🙂

Awww poor Jasper.  Maybe start out just on Daycare days and add a day here & there to see if she can handle sleeping with you.  She does look pretty comfy. 

Yeah Doggies play.  🙂  You are doing fine
