    I know they say dogs can see in the dark.. so I'm going to stop leaving a light on for Katie, I suppose. Just curious as to what you all do for yours!

    No, because Miss Mocha sleeps in bed with us

    No we never did, HRH sleeps in our room now, but at the beginning she didn't, but she didn't seem to mind the dark. We have enough light coming in from street lights or the moon that it's never really pitch black in the house. There is a night light in the bathroom, but HRH wouldn't know that. she wouldn't ever go in or past if not forced to.

    No. He sleeps in his crate downstairs and I noticed when the light is on he moves around a lot more like he cant get comfy.

    We have an open floor plan and he sleeps in his crate right outside our bedroom door, I leave the little light above the kitchen sink on, more for me than Vegas. I get up in the middle of the night at times to get a bottle of water.

    We always have a light on in the kitchen, for us or them. Plus I do not sleep in the dark either, I HAVE to have the tv on so we are never in the dark. lol. Even when we leave and dont come home till late we turn on assorted lights for them throughout the house just in case. Used to leave the tv on for them until we got a flat screen and hubby saw that it only has so many hours of life. haha

    Lola won't settle down or stop complaining until the light goes off. I've been reading the same novel since we got her 2 months ago!

    Not when we are all in bed, but tend to leave a light on for him when we leave the house at night. He sleeps in the dining room. We tried having him sleep in our room, but his snoring is so bad that I couldn't sleep, so we kicked him out!

    Maggie sleeps with us and I can't sleep with any kind of light on ... including a TV .. so it's total darkness. Daddy still sleeps in his cage downstairs and he gets total darkness too.
