Much to my chagrin . . . . over time the 2 greyhounds have claimed the double bed and I'm relegated to the dinette bed!!

But, as you are finding, there's just not enough room on the floor for dogs and people to move around.

On the few occassions when I travel with friends, I bed the dogs down in the back of my SUV. That works except in the most extreme temperatures.

He did fine this trip. Starting him as a puppy helped, I'm sure. I taught him his "place" is in the foyer ( ) while we are cooking or showering. He did sleep on the bed between our feet and tried his best to make himself small. (Although he did manage to turn on the radio at 3 am )

The above picture was taken at 9 weeks. This is 19 weeks:

My German Shepherd, Molly, who sadly passed away last July, always slept on the floor. She took up almost the entire floor but there was room for the porta potty in front of the door & her water bowl. Buddy, the 30-lb. terrier mix is supposed to sleep on the front gaucho, but rarely does.

Jobi, at 75 pounds, has always slept on the dinette bed with me, and my son slept on the side bed. Unfortunately, at just shy of 6', my son has just gotten too tall for the side bed and the extension is a pain in the neck. This last trip I let my son have the dinette bed and I took the side bed, which really confused the dog. She has always sleep on the dinette bed, but never in her six years has she slept in bed with my son. She actually did fine through the night on the dinette bed, but early each morning would crawl across him and onto the side bed and go back to sleep with me. Although fine to sleep on by myself, it is a tad bit crowded with Jobi! We take off again next week, we'll see what happens with the sleeping arrangements.
