    yeah none of my friends have complained either, probably cause they don't have the balls to because i have a big mouth and i like to use it. Lol

    Most of them have kids. I like to joke around that my dogs are more cleaner & better behaved than their children! Their furniture and home is destroyed because they let their children run a muck, yet i have three dogs & cats that are allowed to come in and out of my home as they please and i don't even have as much as scratch mark on my furniture!

    My dog can sleep on the bed whenever she feels like it but she has to get off or move over if I tell her to or she's in trouble. We usually have a good cuddle before we go to sleep - she comes and lies on her back in the crook of my arm and I scratch her chest and tummy - but then she moves to the end of the bed. If I move around too much, she'll go and lie on my daughter's bed or the floor.

    She is way less trouble in bed than the 3 foster cats who insist on lying on me or against me! And nothing compared to the the scarily big tomcat I took in 2 weeks ago jumping on my face this morning! (I swear he did it on purpose because he wanted his breakfast! I had two bleeding scratches on my face!)

    We love the cuddle time also. It is such a nice bonding thing to do with your dog.

    I don't get many visitors, but then I don"t particularly care. I agree with Kuri, if people don't like having a dog lick them or touch them, don't come to my place. i still have a social life, and I understand not every one is a dog person, but yeah, don't judge me for having dog hair on my lounge.

    Yeah true its a nice bonding session. And yes not everyone is a dog person i usually put tess outside if i have someone elderly over or if shes way to exited. She tends to bowl people over sometimes. My friends are fine with it and new people that come into my life i just explain what to expect when they come to my house but most people love how smoochy she is.

    My own dogs + the fosters means I've currently got 8 dogs, all allowed in the house. So keeping down dog smell, even though whippets due to low oil in their coats don't get a doggy smell they do get a grass smelln from romping around the place, plus with the exception of the recently neutered fosters they are entire so go thru hormonal changes which means they shed coat more often (another good reason to desex). I'm very aware of not coming across as the "crazy dog lady" with white hair left on furnishings.

    Hubby and I are looking forward to the day when we can move out of the Sydney area and design our own home then I'm having a dog room or better still a fancy lounge room where no dog will be allowed that I'll show people briefly before most of my friends get too nervous and want to move into the dog area of the house.

    My partner has a problem with it... Yet we still have 2 of them in bed with us every night

    Poor Brody sleeps like a log. One night my partner rolled over and pulled the doona at the same time. Brody rolled off the bed and we just heard a loud THUD followed by a shake and then felt him get back up on the bed

    Frosty is allowed on the couch, with or without me, it's covered in a blanket and sheets.

    But it's really funny when I get visitors and they choose to sit on the couch, instead of one of the lounge chairs (no cover). And Frosty hops up and tries to lick their ears. She doesn't do that to me for some reason, but likes to try it on with visitors. I've visited friends who also have couch dogs and Frosty and her doggy friend will lick each other's ears. And then do zoomies aroudn the house including a run across the couch... like it's a bit of agility equipment.

    And then when I visit other people's houses, I generally choose a chair that doesn't have room for Frosty to sit next to me - or she will. She also likes to sit on a bench or chair next to some of her friends (human ones), where we go for walks. Some of the humans bring coffee and biscuits and sit around on the chairs - and she hops up like she's one of them. And she gets a biscuit like she's one of them. sigh. They've got mixed feelings about the ear "kisses". I just tell them they shouldn't reward her for doing it...

    Haha awe thats really cute. I wouldnt get any sleep if we let Tess sleep in the bed every night, she spreads herself out and sleeps really stiff so you end up with a leg our 4 squashed into you. And she snores and when she dreams she barks and all sorts its very funny.
