We have a huge CA King bed, and Kiefer isn't that much of a bed hog as he is a cuddler. There will be a LOT of room on DH's side of the bed, and I'll be on the edge and Kiefer is curled up next to my legs. Or his feet in my back. Gotta love it!
Try that with 55 lbs. of muscle right up against you! I never slept with any of my dogs before because they were german shepherds and rotties and dobies. Now I have my first mutt, and a smaller one at that. It's sweet to sleep with him, but he is a bed hog too!
