    Default How do you tuck your bully in at night?

    I just put Herman to bed to rest his eye which is really red/irritated right now - and performed the nightly ceremony.

    My "tucking in" routine is to walk him into his play pen and fluff up his blankets. He has one inside his crate that I fluff for him and his sleeping bag on the floor of his pen - which I fold back in case he decides to use that LOL Then I reach inside to check the temperature with my hand. If it's too cold, I check his room thermometer to verify if the temp is an agreeable setting. Too cold? I close all the windows...too hot? I bump up the AC. Could go either way? I crack the window, but not the one directly in front - it must be the one that isn't in a direct path to his crate. Then I check the water bottle to make sure there is enough water. I leave EXACTLY 1 soft toy and his nylabone in there. If the papers under the bottle that catch the drips are dishevled, I either replace them or straighten them out. Don't ask how much time I spend shifting his "velvet crate cover" (my old blanket) to make sure no light or breeze gets in there from the sides or back.... Then I close the pen door...and usually give him a nite nite cookie. That's when all the "good night Hermies" start - at least 3. One at the pen door, one when I turn of the room light and one I yell across as I walk up the stairs.

    For myself, I just jump in bed.

    Does anyone else have special routines like this? Or am I a nutcase?

    hmmm...three letters come to mind...O-C-D !

    but i think many of us bulldog parents are like you too! so in our community it's all "normal" ! you are a very good momma.

    Both boys sleep with me in my bed. All they do is climb up and find a position/spot they like and out they go. Usually Tate will be sucking his stuffed toy on my stomach prior to falling asleep tho and then he'll move to another position (thank goodness b/c he's pretty heavy)! Finn usually curls up at my feet and then inches his way up to my head as the night progresses. They're my teddy bears.

    Vegas has a blanket and pillow in his crate. When it is time for bed I simply say night-night and he goes in on his own.

    Default Re: How do you tuck your bully in at night?

    Well my pups all sleep with me or free in the house anyhow so not quite the same BUT when it is bedtime I get up and go to each snuggled pup at their spot in the living room and say good night. (in case they decide to stay there) BUT Mugsy (the pug) always comes with me so he gets double loving. Cutty 90% of the time comes in within 5 minutes and Miila maybe only comes in 5% of the time. As they come to bed they then get a whole other scratch session one by one until I finally roll over and we all sleep. lol BUT Mugsy paws me a couple times after that so he gets a couple extra on top of that. SPOILED pups!

    Ok, I do seem to be a little nutty LOL

    Herman cant sleep in the bed with me because I don't want him walking up the stairs to the bedroom and my bed is too high! So we have snuggle time on the couch. I've also noticed some hints about him having snuggle time with daddy in Daddy's Chair. Now, I swear when we first got Herman, I was told "No dog in my chair!" And if Herman ever looked at the chair he got in trouble..... so the other day I saw him trying to hop on Daddy's chair and said "Herman no!" Then daddy said "Shhhhh!" Next thing I know they are snuggling. So there is something going on when I'm not home - and I think it's snuggle-time while mommy is away LOL

    Zoey knows when I wash my face and put my jammies on at night that it is bed time. She will run upstairs and usually meets me in bed on my pillow. I have to give a good rub behind the ears and then she settles in and snores so loud that the windows shake. I used to wonder why I had insomnia I don't have the heart to make her sleep downstairs so I usually end up with a pillow over my head trying to block out the noise!

    Bo knows when I take him outside to potty then come back in and brush my teeth that its time for bed.... so he just stands next to me while I brush and then he walks with me to bed, lol. He sleeps with us, right in between us to be exact and that's about it!! Bulldogs are the best!!!!

    Nope.... Banks is so NOT into cuddling or sleeping with you -when she is tired, you better just leave her be.

    We have potty time first, then we wipe bums, give a few pieces of kibble and any nightly meds that may be in order. Meatball get his bed fluffed and if its chilly I cover him up and love on him then he lays down in his crate for the night. Pan just follows us up stairs and has free range of the bedroom. He has his own bed beside ours, he has also pulled one of the comforters down in the closet that he lays on for awhile. But at some point during the night he always manages to find his way onto the bed in between my legs.
