On the days I get up REALLY early, she just takes my spot for me. Part of me would like to think she knows I'm the alpha and that it's the best spot, but I may be dreaming!

Both Bandit and Bridget sleep in our bed - bandit generally will sleep up against my stomach with his paw on my side and bridget will snuggle up to my back, and when chris goes to work of a weekend and i stay in bed Bandit will take his place and snuggle up to me holding my hand in his paws!
I couldnt sleep without them!
I've shared a bed with Rhoda for 11 years now, and Marlee joined us her first night home two years ago. Both are very cuddly in bed, and now that it's getting colder at night, they're extra-super-duper snuggly.
I can't sleep without a pug in the bed anymore. The couple of times I've spent a night in a hotel without them, I found it impossible to fall asleep. It's not just the cuddling, either -- Marlee snores like a hibernating bear and I find it incredibly soothing somehow.

I've always allowed all of mine to sleep in the bed.
4 pugs + 1 heavy woman = not much space. But I wouldn't have it any other way!
I have a king sized bed. Most nights I have 2 pugs, a cat and a 5 year old who sneaks in with me. It's really crowded when the 9 year old has a nightmare.
with Sneaky - the grumpy old man
and always missing Schuyler - the original bad dog : ) and Chloe - my good girl
And Matilda - "When she was good she was very,very good. But when she was bad she was horrid."
Moe has slept with me since the day I brought him home.
Kewpie has a little - ummmm - bladder problem, and as much as I love her, and as sweet as she is, she sleeps on a cushion on the floor by my side of the bed. She seems happy about it; she has asked to get up on teh bed only a couple times in the 3+ years I've had her.

Murphy and Duke sleep with us. Murphy will sleep on his bed if I insist (like when I hurt my back) but Duke is such a brat, he must be in bed with us, right between us. We call him the chastity pug.
Sara, I'm afraid to go to the bathroom sometimes because Murphy will claim my spot and I have a heck of a time moving a 22-pound pug over when he's determined to sleep the spot he stole. He never does this if Jeff gets out of bed.
But I like having the pugs in bed with us. I love waking up to Duke's little black face staring back at me and Murphy close by him (usually with his head on Duke's bum!).
Yep, all four sleep with me! I love it. Wickett always lays by my right side, Suki likes to lay between my knees (so it's a race to get my legs into a "good" spot before she moves in!), and Bindi sleeps up next to/on the pillow, and Misty usually sleeps between Bindi and Wickett, or closer to the end if she gets hot!
I'm proud to say that I have trained myself to only have to turn over maybe once per night! ha!
If I do get up, Misty always steals my spot, the little stinker! haha!
