Default Where do YOURS sleep?

Was lying in bed this morning surrounded by my kids (dogs!) and was thinking about how insane we are to have three dogs sleep in bed with us every night, and got to wondering - there seem to be some pretty pampered pooches on this site, so where do YOURS sleep at night? Crate? Their own bed on the flood? On your bed - or like our guys, IN bed with you? Lol. Our three each have their own preferred spots. Tinkerbell ALWAYS starts the night under the blankets, and she'll emerge and sleep on the pillows between mine and my hubby's heads if she gets too warm. Both boys always start on top of the blankets, but curled up next to my chest, but will often be under the blankets in the same spot come morning. My husband sleeps through anything, but I'm a super light sleeper and they wake me up every time they move - and I wake myself up every time I have to move, so I can manoeuvre myself around them all because I'm crazy enough to think it's more important that they be comfortable than my disturbing them so I can be comfortable

My girls sleep in cages during the night they love them, millie has her own, Gucci and duchess share and Darcy and pixie (sisters) also share.
Maybe I will get an extra two cages when the pups grow up if necessary but I'm in no rush to do it soon as they are happy as they are at the moment.
The cages are just in a little room that comes off the ensuite so they are close to my bedroom. During the day they just nap on their day beds which they all share pixie doesn't like sharing the fluffy one though haha! It's adorable that tinkerbell ends up between you and your husband!
Here's a photo of there cages and name signs.

I have tried different scenarios...at this new place that are all sleeping together in a pen/crate. Mia & Lily slept together like Jessica 's pups for the first couple of years. Lily joined them when we got her. We tried at different times to have them sleep with us. We all really seem more comfortable separatly, We sleep better and I think they do also..
They actually go put themselves into their beds at night around 8:00.
When we travel they sleep with us in the out hotel beds. If we are on an extended trip we will haul or ship their crates/pen. ( We use the IRIS pens as a crate. They are the best purchase we have ever made, they are portable and adjustable.)
The problem is this...they wake up a number of times in the night and love to shake. My husband likens it to tambourines shaking. Their ears, especially Raisin's & Mia's are so big that they make a loud slapping noise, LOL!

Autumn sleeps in bed with me and my SO. She tends to start under the covers by my stomach and then work her way up to the pillows in the nape of my neck lol. The first few nights I was scared that I was going roll on her. But we've since got the sleeping arrangements down lol.

The second night I had her my SO came into the bedroom with us sleeping like this!

We have two crates, so they usually sleep in pairs and I take one to bed with me. They will happily all sleep together though. I have had all five in bed with me before, but I get trapped and can't turn over. One or two are much easier to cope with lol None of mine stay on top of the covers, and Delilah likes to walk across my face in the middle of the night.

Jessica, the crate set up you have there is just about the cutest thing ever lol. It's fantastic, I love it.

We didn't INTENTIONALLY have the dogs in bed with us. It started with Tink 11 years ago when we brought her home as a puppy. We were young and stupid - I was barely 20 years old and my husband had NEVER had a dog in his life prior to Tink - so we weren't exactly the most stellar pet parents right off the bat lol. We had all these visions of grandeur about the dog sleeping on the floor...but that lasted a whole 2 hours of the first night. We had her in our bedroom with us, as we had multiple room mates at the time - of course, she started screaming like a banshee and in addition to being right beside our heads, we had the room mates who we couldn't have her keeping up all night...so she was brought up into the bed with us. After that, every dog we've brought home has been a bed dog - we can hardly let Tink sleep in bed with us an expect any others to sleep on the floor!

Aw thanks I'm glad you like it, the chis love it so I'm happy with it.
I can imagine how hard it was when she was a pup, it was hard with Millie too we ended up bringing the crate into our room to stop her from crying until she loved the crate, which worked well and because the pups share they never cry in the crates
