    No dogs on the bed in our house. But only because I can't deal with the hair. They are allowed on the lounge when ever they please at the moment because it is a shitty old one. I will be buying them some tough beds though so they will be back on the floor shortly I think. If they didn't shed so much or get so smelly they would be allowed on all the things.

    Its up to you, as Hya and MAC said.. they are opportunists.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    we have a "no dog on the furniture" rule. Hes in the house but he has his own basket and bed in the lounge room. He sneaks up but gets off quickly on demand...

    Mostly its because of the hair everywhere- drives me batty. Also- even though hes lovely- the smell. Also- because he likes to chew soft cusions/doonas and pillows (and hes 8 yrs old). So its much simpler and less confusing for him to be "off" all human furniture.

    He sleeps outside from 11pm to 7am in his kennel on our deck- he snores so much he keeps us awake inside the house- NO WAY he could be in our room...

    Sammy has a bath every week (with oatmeal, honey and milk) for this exact reason. I don't know, the longer I spend with poochy the less I feel like we have a leader/follower relationship. He's not constantly looking for opportunities to usurp me, he knows I'm a good leader and provide well for our pack and he certainly gets to provide plenty of input - he knows how to ask for things and then well I might say no but we both like many of the same things so the good times always come again. I just wish he wasn't quite so boney. He likes to sleep right next to you, but unfortunately he's not soft, so I keep moving away slightly but he just moves closer again and eventually I end up on the edge of the bed :s

    Other peoples home i draw the line. I don't like to take my dog on visits to friends homes unless i know she is welcome. I have a friend who doesn't mind Molly and she is welcome but she has to stay outside. I have other friends who allow Molly inside and even though she is allowed to jump all over my furniture as much as she wants, i do not allow her on other peoples - i don't care whether they have told me otherwise or how shitty their furniture is, i do it out of respect for somebody else's home.

    Same with the dog park, she loves to sit on the seat next to humans (sniffing for treats no doubt). Even though it's a public place, manners are still due. It's a designated spot for humans. Just because we all have dogs doesn't mean we all like having somebody else's pooch leaning against you. I know i would have a problem with somebody's heavy shedding, drooling lab sitting next to me and most times i will pick their dog up and place them on the grass - where they belong.

    Poor Rexy is snoring his head off next to me on the bed right now. Don't know if i have the heart to kick him off especially after playing hero this afternoon i might leave him be & beg OH to leave him alone. All the others are in the garage so still plenty of space on the bed!

    99 bottles - can you tell me more about the honey milk and oatmeal baths? how do you get her into your bath?? what do you put in it?
    can you do it outside instead of within a bath? we wash hooch on the grass outside or in our shower (if its cold).. he is too big for the bath tub.. but I would love to know how to spoil him and us with that kind of wash!!

    you can buy it as a dog shampoo from any store. I currently use sergeants oatmeal, honey and milk with awapuhi shampoo. It smell delish and oatmeal is suppose to be good for dogs with sensitive skin.

    mine are too big to get in the bed, if i had a small dog though, i still wouldn't because of personal choice regarding how much space i would have to give up. And children and babies in my bed are a contraceptive of sorts. Not what i chose.

    Duke ALWAYS wants to sit on the chairs at the vets! I mostly let him, honestly, because he is so scared of the vet, I will do anything to calm his nerves a little!

    Sammy is definitely too big to get in bed too but I am one of those weird people who can go to sleep no matter what. If my partner is there, we can't have him in the bed because he moves around, goes under the covers then gets too hot and sprawls himself over you - he takes up a lot more room than a human.

    One time my partner went to the bathroom, came back and found this...

    I ask Sammy to jump into the bath tub - he doesn't want to but he will and I just hose him down. If I'm feeling lazier though I just let him in the shower with me. It's true he doesn't really fit in there either but he likes that better than the bath.
