Just a note about sleeping with you at night........ Sleeping on the bed is a privilege that my dogs have to earn. I don't allow my dogs to sleep in bed with me until they're a little older and are fairly well trained, so there is absolutely no question about who's Da Boss and who isn't. :-) And once they're sleeping on the bed regularly, that privilege is revoked for a month at the first hint that somedoggy is forgetting who's in charge.
