    I usually pay for it in the morning.

    And I notice I move my legs around the dogs. If I want to change position, I will actually bring my legs right up to my chest and mover it over the top of the dog LMAO. Its ridiculous...those buggers got me wrapped real tight LOL.

    Sometimes I do wake up though and actually move Pippi so I can go on my side coz she wont budge otherwise. And when I do pick her up, its like shes dead, just all floppy and everything. Doesnt even bother trying to help when she knows Im trying to pick her up.

    Doesn't bother me, i'm a really deep sleeper so don't wake up when he gets home. I think that's half the problem since i lay diagonal and one dog on one side & one of the other and none of us will move for him. Lol He was more lenient with just Molly sleeping with me, but somehow Rex has ended up in my room too!

    He comes before the dogs since he's the one out making the moolah, so unfortunately dogs now have to go in the garage.

    Sunday mornings when we have our only sleep-in morning I will invite the dogs on the bed...Annabelle, Tessa and katy love it ( but it is very crowded). It is big snuggle time. Annabelle also sleeps on the bed when hubby is not home, or leaves early. Lukey hates the bed, not sure why. Could be from his previous life

    My pup isn't allowed on the bed until he's toilet trained, I do not want to wake up to pee in/on the bed, lol. Not sure how the OH would feel about him being on the bed though. My cat currently sleeps in the bed with us. He normally starts off laying on top of the blanket in the most uncomfortable spot he can find, usually on top of someone's legs and grooms himself. Then I think he must wait until just after I've gone to sleep to come right up to my face and paw at the blanket, which I then have to lift up for him and he tunnels under and plonks right under my butt and quite often uses my leg a pillow, lol. He wakes me up frequently during the night since half the time when I roll over there's a cat right where I want to put my leg, so I do the same as Lala and pull my legs up and over the top of him and manoeuvre around him. In summer he rarely sleeps under the sheets, but as soon as it starts getting cold he's in every night.

    When I was a kid I tried to convince our cat to stay in my bed but she always ran away a minute later.
    I decided to shut my door at night so she is locked inside the room with me. Every morning I would wake up she would be out and free. My family swore it was none of them.
    One night I heard noises, I looked up and saw her hung on the door knob - swinging from side to side. THATS how she got out!! I wish my dog or cat actually liked getting in bed with me as a kid. None of them did lol

    Couldn't agree more. Nothing like a cold nose in the ear to kill the joy.

    All 8 of ours sleep on the floor in the bedroom. Makes an interesting obstacle course when you just have to go to the loo in the dark of night.

    I had the opposite as a kid and teenager.....GSD's everywhere (4), on the bed under the bed and beside the bed..........Now as an adult I always think what a shock it would be for an intruder to have landed in my room LOL.
    And some of the overseas countries we lived, it was probably a good idea to have all those dogs...we used to live in secure compounds.....

    Our dog sleeps in our bed as well. He has his own bed next to ours but would jump up when he gets cold during the night. He'd walk up to our head end for the duvet to be lifted so he can slip in. Luckily he doesn't fart or stink so he is allowed under the duvet In fact he is actually very welcome as he has an important job as hot a waterbottle replacement.
