Default We have developed a new bedmate

When we first adopted Simcha, we swore that we would never let him sleep in our bed. We made an exception beginning about 10 days ago. He had swallowed about 50 fish oil capsules (pried open a bottle with what we thought was a secure lid), and suffered the indignity of enforced vomiting at the local vet's. Because of concerns about lingering after effects, we let him sleep with us. There have been problems on and off since then with his ability to tolerate his food. We followed veterinary advice by putting him on a special high fiber food mixed with his usual Nutro. Because the food tolerance problems persisted and we were worried, the sleeping arrangement continued - we felt we could observe him better rather than putting him in his remote room for the night.

Because of the ongoing issues, at our vet's suggestion he is now taking Pepcid AC, half a 10mg tablet twice daily, and will be for about six more days. And, he is now our regular bed mate. Fortunately, rather than sleeping on my side of the bed and contending with my 6 foot 2, 200 lb body, he curls up with Ruth, who is about a foot shorter and 90 pounds lighter. He sleeps extremely well all night that way, and I think these arrangements will become permanent. He really does look very lovable curled up in his 'mommy's' arms.

I have to admit that it is extremely soothing and emotionally satisfying to have this little 14 lb fur ball sleeping in our bed. So far, no problems with bad odors, dirt or fleas. Just thought I would share. I can now much better understand why so many of the Chi-People enjoy sleeping with their pets.

I live alone. I love snuggling with Toby at night, it's one of my favorite things about having a small clean little chi. I'm glad you enjoy it, too.

I have a border collie on top of the covers and a chi under the covers. I am never alone.

I was also one of those people who swore I'd never sleep with a dog in the bed. *blush* But there is just something so comforting and warming about having that little soul next to you fast asleep.

I love sleeping with my chi's too! All 3 sleep with us and I couldn't have it any other way. Actually, when we go on vacation, I can't sleep without them!

Lady and Price both sleep with us. When we first got Prince and we left him in his crate at night (one of my husbands requests when we got the second dog). That lasted under two weeks and my husband invited him with us. Sometimes we have our cat on the bed too! Sometimes they see more than they should (hehe...). I often wake up and have Lady on one side and Prince wrapped around my neck.
