    They have that whole cushioned covered blanket next to the radiator and they decide to curl up together in one of Lolas old tiny beds! They are so cute I could eat them...

    What strange places do your dogs decide to squeeze into?

    Kilo doesn't do squeezing in really unless it's between me and the sofa arm or me and hubby :rolleyes:.

    In the day he usually chooses the sofa:

    At night he sleeps in his 'house' under the stairs:

    They do look very cosy together though :D

    Florence likes to squeeze into the tiny gap between the arm of the sofa and me. She hasn't quite worked out that she doesn't fit so it normally results in my legs getting crushed :rolleyes:

    Freya has tonight been trying to sleep in the gap between Florence's head and thigh which results in my grumpy Florence squishing her, most likely on purpose :lol:

    I love Kilos house...I said to my OH when we move I want to make a little house under the stairs like that too! Although we will probably need the storage. Where do you keep your hoover? lol

    at night...
    Trouble tends to sleep at my feet, unless it's the summer then she gets too hot and they have secondary beds on the floor

    Stark has got herself a comfy spot curled round my head on the pillows (this won;t last long as she's starting to get too big and will have to find a new spot.

    now i know i'm only 5'3" and we have a king size bed but i do get more than a little squished in my doggy sandwich and the man still moans that he's got n space WELCOME TO MY WORLD!!!!!!!

    (sorry no pics of this menage et tois (spellings not my strong point) there is a pic of when Trouble came up and cuddled me in my sleep and i didnt even know but i've very nearly got a boob out in that so you probs don;t want to see hehhe)

    Lola always does that she likes to sit inbetween myself and OH or next to you with her head on my leg! Walt is surpringly independant for a whippet and will take him self off to the bed by the radiator as he really is two big on our two seater sofa. Once he has tried to jump on us and squeeze in somewhere usually right on top of Lola and been cuddled for a while he gets to hot and wonders off on his own.

    In the storage cupboard / cloakroom on the other side of the stairs. Also have a storage cupboard in the porch. Storage space is one thing this house has ;).

    In the dining room - leather chair, they lay on the arms, seat and back of it (they like to look out the window)

    In the living room - we have a corner sofa and a chair - they can sleep where ever, atm Sadie is at the side of me and Louie is on the floor.

    In the kitchen, the floor or their beds.

    In my bedroom, Louie sleeps on the bed or floor, Sadie sleeps on the chair or my bed but normally gets on the latter in the morning, Benjie sleeps on the floor only but if I get off the bed and OH is still in bed he jumps up, but I don't like him on the furniture because he gets possessive, so all I have to do is walk in the room and he will get off the sofa because I have taught him that and if he is on my bed, he is allowed to stay but if he growls at anytime - either at the other dogs or me (which is often - even if I'm sat down whilst I look in my drawers).

    Outside, Benjie will lie on the step or on the patio, Louie and Sadie prefer grass

    Aww, how cute. 4 little Chihuahuas in a handy stealable container!!LOL:D
    My lot also sleep where ever I am, so in dog beds when Im on the pooter, under the duvet on the sofa when Im watching telly and under the duvet when Im in bed. (they become almost subterranean when the weather turns colder!!).
    When Im working nights though they are confined to the kitchen and Adam has one bed and Hannah and Heidi squish together in another.:)

    Am loving the photos :)

    At night, Dexter almost always chooses to curl up on my bed. This, despite his having a gorgeous dog bed in my room which in my brother's words 'looks fit for a king'! (it's two X large baskets pushed together, filled with mattresses, duvet, sheets and nice cushions).

    During the day, he likes to sleep on a sofa in an upstairs room; there are big bay windows above the sofa so he likes watching the street before and after his sleep :)

    He also sleeps downstairs on various sofas and chairs.

    but she has also claimed my daughter's little sponge armchairs...
    [​IMG]

    she's getting a bit big for them now though...
    [​IMG]

    so we've had to put of them together like this...
    [​IMG]

    She does have a bed I promise but never bothers with it...she did go in it once and slept about 10 minutes but since then she just goes in it to scratch and chew up the washing instructions label on the inside :rolleyes:
