When we welcomed our first dog - Ferdi - in to the family,
Having quickly broken our heart with his crying, we caved and moved Ferdi's little bed in to the bedroom. And before long he was nosing me awake at 5 am and I'd sneak him in to our bed. And before long he was in our bed right from lights out. And there's no going back from there...
So our second dog - Elfi - has always slept in our bed. When she sees signs that it might be nearing bed time, she likes to get in their first and make a nest, a mound of pillows. It looks so comfy, it almost seems a pity to disturb her. Perhaps I should sleep on the floor?
