My hubby won’t allow my 2 to sleep in his half of our double bed so they both have to squeeze in my half under the covers . Brilliant in the winter (hot dog bottles) but not so good when it’s warmer weather .

Heidi Meyst

Yup then he takes over when I get up.

Mary Lou Hoopmann Morrissette

Totally do!

Jay Streisant

My Boston always used to sleep in bed with me

Jan Dugger

I would like to say my Boston sleeps with me but he does own the bed.

Bill Guidry

My late BT chuck, if the wife and got in bed and snugged up together, he would get on top of the cover and walk back and forth between us until we moved and let him snuggle between us.

Livi Thule

Gives me a little lick on the lips, then goes under the covers. I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Keleigh Slaight

Terrie Venie

Because she had always assumed she should. She started to go to the end of the bed one night, turned around came back gave me a kiss goodnight and then went back to the end of the bed again.m

Rose Jones

Donna Harden

Our Boston sleep between us every night. During the winter, she sleeps under the sheets and during warmers weather, on top of the sheets. She loves to curl up next to my husband’s legs.

Deb Whelan

Definitely. Right under the covers. ๐Ÿ˜ด

Nicky Robinson

My Boston Chibi snuggles right into the bed as close to me as she can get, then proceeds to snore all night !! I wouldn’t have it any other way ๐Ÿ’•

Susanne Norton La Faver

Appreciate company and warm body.


I didn’t know that I had a choice? #bostonterrier #bostonsarebest

Debra Sears Farmer

All my BTs have slept with me. Hubby doesn’t mind. They all went through 30 years of Navy deployments with me. Don’t think I could have made it without them. I wasn’t able to have children so I had my BTs. When I was still working my boys went to the ER with me. I worked graveyard shift & they stayed under the docs desk. I can’t tell you how much my crew depended on them. The airlift crews used to love to come to our hospital for a transport because they got some good BT lovings!

Shirley Eller

There is nothing wrong about sleeping with your dogs, NOTHING!!! We sleep with three Bostons and wouldn’t have it any other way!

Leanne Colquhoun

How big is your bed?? ๐Ÿ˜‚ One Boston and I’m nearly kicked out by his long legs

Dana Luce

I love Bostons. We had a great one—Oscar. He would root to get under the covers. I still miss him.

Clarence Wardwell

Maggymae gives us each a kiss goodnight, then wants us to cover her up!!!! Then About three a.m. She gets in bed with us!!!!

Pamela Coutts Archer


Debbie Maddux St Romain

You Sophia sleeps right at my back under the covers. Bullet sleeps at the foot of the bed but doesn’t like covers.

Ryan Roysden

No but my dog sleeps with me! I don’t think we would fit in his bed if I slept with him!

Jan Adams

Bea cuddled in a basket on my bed her first night with me. Since then, she has spent every night possible cuddled up against my back.


The first night I brought Alfred home he crawled under my sheets and curled up at my side. I thought it was the cutest thing ever and he’s been sleeping with me ever since. I don’t sleep well if he’s not beside me.

Carol Wesseling Griffith

Bella shares my chair when ever I am in it, so she and I both sleep in our own beds.

Lewis Tuckey

Yes I sleep with my Boston terriers they love me I love them if they can’t get in bed with me they cry and cry so they get in bed

LaDon Page-White

We would be lost not sleeping with Mimi

Becky Casto Ledford

Mine us sort of took over my bed, he actually goes to bed before me and gets under the blankets. When I go , I have to move him over so I can get in., he’s a huge bed hog, but snuggling with him helps us both sleep better I think.

Ben Landtroop

It’s her bed not sure who is whose pet we aruge about it all the time can’t sleep without her my furbaby or master???

Amanda Smith

Mine passes gas too much to sleep with her.

Joyce Powell

My boy does not have that problem, since I put him on grain free, chicken free diet. He use to clear the room.

Amanda Smith

Hmmm something to look into.

Danielle Martin

You have to put her under and make a seal with the blanket, then no gas escapes ๐Ÿ˜‚

Amanda Smith

Ah the dreaded Dutch oven ๐Ÿ˜‚

Carol Wesseling Griffith

Danielle Martin that is what my husband does, but sometimes it escapes.

Era Fae

Yes. .. Can’t sleep good without them.. โคโค

Joyce Powell

He is my baby and after he was totally potty trained at 4 months, he use to whine so I let him sleep in my bed, I thought it would be temporary. Now he’s a bed hog and if he isn’t in my bed, he jumps in to wake me. He owns the beds, the couch, my recliner. He’s a needy boy.

Mary Kay Anderson

And that’s just the way it should be! I wouldn’t want it any other way! Funny how we let them do things that we wouldn’t let our kids do! ๐Ÿพโ˜บ๏ธ

Joyce Powell

Mary Kay Anderson, lol true.

Linnรฉy Mรผller Lilly

We do! Bed is big enough! And he likes to sleep like a human under the covers and his head out on a pillow! And his like a warm bottle when its cold which its nice! And he just love the snuggles and be with mom and dad! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Wendy Laurence

They’re little hot water bottles!

Marti Marikovics

Dogs are pack animals…they need to be with their peeps!

Nancy Dionne

Out cold! It’s a ruff life
