Winter is Coming

In our house, you can determine the seasons by Hailey's sleeping position on the bed. In the warmer spring and fall weather, she sleeps at the bottom of the bed. In the hottest summer weather, she prefers a bed on the floor.

In the cold weather, she likes to sleep curled up between our knees or up by our chests. She needs to be touching us.

This past week, the temperature has dropped. Our bedroom has been about 16 C/60 F (which I the Lady think is perfect sleeping temperatures, but I tend to get very hot in my sleep). Hailey has slept mostly curled up on or by my legs. However, on Tuesday night, she spent some of the night up higher, more chest level and she wrapped her paw around my arm. It was so sweet. I really wanted to roll over but couldn't bring myself to disturb her.

Phod still mostly sleeps on the floor (on a dog bed) although occasionally he will join us on the bed.

  2. In Australia we always judged how cold it was by the number of dogs sleeping with you - a one dog night was mild - a two dog night chilly, a three dog night cold and a four dog night freezing :)

  3. I love the place between the knees too... and I sometimes sleep with the head on my daddy's shoulder. To enjoy this rare moment he turns into a stone and tries not to move... even when he feels every bone and muscle the next day :o)

  5. Momma always judges nighttime temperatures based on me! As it gets colder, I start asking to sleep under the covers with her. She calls me her furry little bed heater.

  10. It is the same in our house! Spring, Summer, Fall Sampson starts out on the bed, but most of the time ends up on the floor, but in the Winter, he typically spends the entire night next to me.

    I like my room on the cooler side too, preferring to snuggle up under a quilt with a dog tucked next to me. :-) Hubby likes it warm, so he has to sleep in another room. LOL He has the heater on while I have the window open and a fan blowing on me.

  11. Oh my goodness, those puppy pjs! They're so adorable!! It's interesting that Hailey changes sleeping places according to the weather - Daisy sleeps in her bed no matter what. Sometimes we put a little sweater on her if it's extra chilly, but I don't really think she needs it - it's mostly because we think it's cute. :)

  12. I don't really change my night time position with the season, but that might be 'cos it's NEVER hot here in the north of Scotland...

  15. Mabel has been staying under the covers longer as the nights have cooled down. We do find ourselves not wanting to disturb the little furries that are cuddled close

  20. We prefer the floor, tiled floor in the heat, though Bella does love to be on the bed right in front of the fan. We make good weather dogs.

  22. My chi's have always slept in the bed with me. Chico likes to crawl in and out from the covers all through the night but now that it's starting to get colder her tends to stay under longer. Shiver remains under the blanket all night long, no matter how hot or cold it gets. I love it!

    That's so sweet you didn't want to disturb Hailey's sleep. I'm the same way with my boys.
