Although since that was published she has gone incognito (I think the pink PJs were an embarrassment.

Re: Do your pets sleep indoors?

Our boys sleep on our beds, & it's up to them to choose who they bed down with. Their sleeping habits are quite different depending on which bed they choose. My wife is unaware of them all night, until she gets a morning snuggle. I'm more or less their big bro, so it's pretty much a scramble for us to take up the least amount of bed real estate as possible.
One night I went to turn over, but my head was buried into the pillow. I was pretty groggy, but soon sensed a weight on the side of my head, something draped over my face, & very slight pressure on my chest. My little buddy had his front quarters over my temple, his face draped over mine, & a leg lazing across my chest. I was determined to roll over, & I did, but he didn't budge. : )

I have three dogs and they are part of our family so yes they sleep inside at night either in there beds or ours depending on what takes their fancy.
We used to have two Alaskan malamutes and they lived in the house as well.

Mille & Rubes.JPGI live on a farm with hubby and my dog and hubby has refused to allow the dog inside, so I have her on a raised bed with a single doona folded in half and one of those electric throws on at night and in winter I also tie another woolen blanket onto the veranda rail sort of making a tent,  she's as cosy as any outside dog could be!!

Maaaaate, here I am checking out all of your posts so that I can ramp up your "liked" count, & you do this to me? : (

I'll cut you some slack if the kennel's got a King sized bed, mood lighting, 4K TV, an internet connection, perpetual subscriptions to dating sites, an auto feeder, air con, & an ensuite composting toilet.

Re: Do your pets sleep indoors?

Our cattle dog has free access to the house and yard. She loves to be with her pack (us) and we can see her sadness when she's shut in or out for some reason. She knows the house rules and usually obeys them!!! We love her waggy tail following us around wherever we are. Sharing our days together is why we have her. My wife changed my ideas about this from my childhood and now I couldn't imagine having an outdoor only dog. I vote for indoor dogs.

Absolutely RickyH, dogs are pack animals, which by natural means that they want/need company.
As you say, there's real joy in seeing their tails wag, their eyes glow, the impromptu snuggles, & unconditional love.

My two Jack Russells own the house and kindly allow me to live with them.
