    Forget the sleeping part, what about the drool, the snot, the phlem we deal with? Sleeping is the least of my problems, it is when he sneezes in my wide open mouth that I worry about! (not really I guess I am getting used to it) lol, that is why god invented Listerine! I would rather sleep with Vegas than a sick hubby, my chances of getting sick is much less, No offense Joe, but seriously!

    I told my husband about this (I heard it on the news a couple hours ago), and he said " So, you can get sick sleeping with your wife (or Husband) if they're sick". Yeah, hope they didn't spend much on this "study".

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!

    I agree that if you keep your dogs clean and they aren't exposed readily to toxins and such, everything should be fine. Obviously some people have allergies and that is a consideration but I too am tired of hearing everything is bad for us. I love to sleep with my babies.

    What about the positive benefits of having a dog, the lowered blood pressure and drop in stress levels. Studies have shown that a pet will increase your life span. Any-one that that has an immunity issue should be careful of many things.

    “Pets are pets, they are not children,”....... Gracie just told me she doesn't believe that..... I agree with her.

    I heard about this but it doesn't bother me, my bubba will still sleep with us no question! I also agree with bfletch, there are a million studies about everyday items/things in our life that are dangerous, everything can make you sick it seems like!
