    Ok this is going to sound really strange!

    Kenzie sleeps on the bed at night, lucky girl. I've noticed that she loves sleeping with a 'pillow' - if I put my pjs or clothes on the bed she'll curl up with her head on them (it's not a scent thing as she'll do it with clean clothes too). Her favourite style of doggy bed is a donut one as she can rest her head on the side.

    Does anyone else's dog like a pillow? I'm thinking of getting a tiny cushion for her to use on the bed so I don't have to feel guilty pulling my pjs out from under her when I need to put them on :eek:

    Like this! (Sorry for the terrible quality, I only had a little lamp on)

    When OH is away I let the dogs in the bed and Dave sleeps with his head on OH pillow :D

    And if I've had a kip on the couch and my pillow is still there Xiva lies ON it! :lol:

    Dixie likes to rest her head on me when she curls up next to me but she's never used a 'pillow' :)


    I think you should get Kenzie her own pillow it would be really cute.

    Florence always uses cushions from the sofa to rest her head on and if forced to sleep on the floor, she'll pull down a cushion and use that :)

    yep - Angus is another of those soft lumps that has to rest their head on something soft. I often wake up to find a little black and white head on the pillow beside me and during the day he'll find a towel or blanket and carefully arrange it before sleeping on it.

    Alfie likes to sleep like a person; head on a pillow, body under the covers.

    He even has a side of the bed :eek:

    Oz buries himself under pillows and cushions and gets quite grumpy if you move them. If I could figure out how to attach a chuffin picture I would post one of him

    if you have a photobucket account just copy and paste the IMG code into your post.
    if not, when you are in the reply box there is a little paperclip along the top, if you hover over it it says attachments, click on that and you can upload pics from your computer ;)

    Mine dont use pillows in the bed, they prefer to just snuggle under the covers, but they do prefer donut beds and things to rest their heads on the rest of the time.
    In fact Im sure that is what they think Loofah dogs were created for!! Tiny pillows for tiny dogs!!LOL:rolleyes:
