    I have a dog in the bed every night. Tonight it is juice, 80lbs of pillow for me. I have a 3 dog rotation and there is never a night without a dig in the house. Riwdy and juice prefer the bed, Bama prefers the lazy boy.

    Have removed bed frame and put box springs and mattress on floor so elderly dogs are still able to get on and off bed.

    Probably not best person to ask advice about sleeping with puppies.

    I've brought home 5 pups and had them all sleep in the bed with me the first 2-3 nights. Never had an issue. Maybe I'm lucky. Used to a dog in the bed regards.

    Just remember when that 8 wk old pup wakes up during the night sleeping next to you in bed, he'll just pee on you and go right back to sleep..........

    My new one was in the cabin across the room from the couch where I slept. She has not been in bed with me at all and she's doing well. One accident in her kennel, while I was at work. The breeder did a great job and she holds it through the night and day.

    Loving life.

    Remember, that first night with you is (hopefully) the worst day of that pup's life. They are going to very unhappy and will express that. I have tried the crate next to the bed thing but always have found that in the bed the first night or two is easier on everyone. It doesn't mean you have to do it forever.

    You mean me or the dog? He has many good qualities, but I thank God daily for giving him an off switch for the house.

    He's not too far from you until about Labor Day.
