    Default sleep question?

    Im wondering if anybody else has experienced interrupted sleep patterns with their bullies. Chumley will lie by my bed at night and sleep for about an hour or two..then get up and plop himself in another part of the room for an hour. Then its off to the hallway where he spends another hour..then to the den where he sleeps on a sofa. He eventually ends back up in my room for a few more hours. I don't think he's ever slept the whole night through. Is that normal? He doesn't whimper, bark or bother anybody..he just moves around to different spots to get more comfortable Im assuming...He will sleep practically anywhere!-sleep1-jpg-sleep2-jpg-sleep3-jpg-sleep4-jpg-sleep5-jpg

    No, no sleep problems here. Lol. Dozer is my lazy guy, he loves to sleep. They are both crate trained at night, so they get their last walk at around 10 or 11 at night, and then they usually cuddle next to whoever I still up watching TV, then the last person to go to bed, which is usually my son the night owl will put them I'm the crate for the night, and they sleep right through until 6 am when we have to wake them up and take them out, Blossom will always bounce out, and be excited to go outside, but Dozey we have to coax out, and bribe with a piece of kibble, and then he'll grudgingly come out. He looks at you with those eyes that say Gee Mom do I really have to go out? Lol

    Thanks, I'm wondering now if something is bothering him that makes him get up and change spots all night long?

    @Chumley - Colossus is the same way. He will start out on the couch (or elsewhere in the living room) come into my room (when hes not banished for peeing on a shirt that found its way on the floor) then back to the hallway. I think its just a "bully thing" one of those quirks we just have to adore about our bully.

    Harlea sleeps through the night for the most part. From time to time we can hear her get a drink or chew on one of her bones in her crate. But usually she is down for the count from 9pm until 530am.

    Those photos are fantastic. I am in love with Chumley! Ruthie has interrupted sleep just cause she likes to potty at night not during the day.

    @Chumley Mia sleeps in her crate too; in she goes whenever the last person goes to bed. If she's in a "mood" she will sometimes go in by herself. It's not near us so I'm not sure if she sleeps through the whole night or not, but she doesn't cry. Just wanted to stop by to say Chumley is gorgeous! love him

    Chumley is too adorable for words. Dudley slept in his crate until around his 2nd birthday...now he sleeps either on the couch, his favorite chair, the ottoman...and because I left his crate up and the door open...he'll often sleep there. In fact, he's asleep in his crate right now for a little nap. I don't hear him -- he doesn't bark -- but I know he switches position! Sometimes he's on the couch when I go to bed and on the chair when I come down in the morning. Growing up we had dogs -- boxers, schnauzers, poodles -- they often wandered from place to place to sleep.

    Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them...

    Hello!! Well, my Harley(17mos), has to sleep in crate at night or else he'll roam about the house and get into trouble. The crate is where he gets his best rest and gives me peace of mind that he's safe!!!! We all get the rest we need to keep up with him!

    If I let Raven sleep outside of her crate that happens. She will constantly move around. I used to let her sleep on the bed with me but then she would move around a lot and then I had some allergy issues so we stopped that. If she sleeps in her crate she may turn once during the night and that is it.

    Ruggles sleeps in his open crate in the laundry room with a pet door so he takes himself out to get a drink and go potty during the night. If he were allowed to sleep in the living room he would move from recliner to couch to floor all night!
