masterjack, how sweet that her next choice for a sleeping partner was you!!
What kind of dog is she??
Sydney is a Schnauzer/Cocker mix with a little dash of chicken thrown in for good measure.
She's 14.5 years old and I've had her since birth (I used to be owned by the mother and she was born in my house).
That's sweet of you to think that she voluntarily got off the bed and took her place somewhat under the bed, but truth be known, she will sometimes fall off the bed in the middle of the night *thud* and is too "elderly" to make it back up on the bed by herself.
Most nights, she'll sit on the floor next to my side of the bed and whimper until I wake up and scoop her back up on the bed again!! She also has trouble holding her bladder and bowel during the night and when that happens, her daddy gets up and takes care of that. Kinda like having a baby, isn't it??
And speaking of baby, the only way she'll eat her food is if I smother it with a jar of baby food. Must be either chicken, turkey or ham flavor for her to even touch it!
