I have given in and now allowing Wicket to sleep in bed with us, lol. It's been really humid and hot lately and despite having A/C, we have very poor air circulation in our home. Wicket has woken up a couple of times in the middle of the night crying from the heat/humidity. With her being a smooshed face dog, I was worried that her crate wasn't ventilated enough to allow adequate oxygen flow. We have a fan pointing at her crate, but it's still an enclosed little box and no amount of fanning can help with the humidity. So I finally made the big decision to allow her to sleep in our bed so she can breathe easier. I know it isn't a big deal, and lots of owners let their dogs sleep in bed with them, but for me that was the rule. I have problems sleeping and having a dog that likes to constantly readjusting herself plus my lumbering boyfriend that likes to toss in his sleep, it's kinda crowded. She seems pretty happy, though I'm pretty sleep deprived after just 2 days, lol. It's only for the summer, so I hope she doesn't get used to this arrangement >.< She might start sleeping in her outside bed, but it's harder for me to make sure that's she's not up to no good. Oh the hilarity, lol.
