    One of my friends and his wife have a 90 lb lab and somehow most nights he said all three of them are in the bed, Although Kobe (the dog) moves around a lot.

    Her? there might not be enough room for either you or hubby on a queen size bed. The dog or cat always has plenty of room.

    Mike and I used to have DOUBLE bed for years until we got the Queen sized one about a year or so ago / maybe 2. We had Buddy for 6 years and YES he slept with us on the double. He weighed about 70lbs. Jaxi (55lbs) got her own bed built by Mike and I made her a crocheted pillowcover. D.Bo (90lbs) sleeps in a crate, also with his own pillowcover. When Buddy passed, we allowed Jaxi on the bed, but she rarely spends the whole night with us. She usually lasts about an hour and then jumps off to go on her own bed. This morning, she surprised me when we were lounging, sleeping off and on around 7ish. She jumped up on my side (RARE) so I snuggled with her and we went back to sleep. Mike woke up and saw us (said we were having a snoring contest) and I had her in a headlock. LOL I think if she minded then she would have wriggled away. I'd like to think she is warming up to me.

    Thank You so much. It means the world to me to read that. She is my treasure. Mona and Joey are my treasures also, they are guiding Trouble on how to keep me in line.
