Although...it's completely worth it when they scoot closer after you get in and they curl their heads up against you and fall asleep.
bed is off limits to the dogs. One resident daughter has a border collie the other has a Glen of Imaal Terrier (AKA the Holy Terror, Furry Torpedo of Death, Dreadful Chub Chub, etc...). The Glennie is a snuggler who often ends up in his owner's bed. The border collie prefers to sleep on a comfy bed of her own so she can get up to check that the doors & windows are locked and count her flock --us-- during the night.
Once, in a moment of weakness, I let the terrier sleep on/with me. It was after I'd had shoulder surgery and had to sleep in a recliner till the injured shoulder was stable. He was very comforting and extremely warm. I think without his assistance, I'd have ended up sucking my thumb --which I never did before in my life!-- because I hurt so badly. Wore out a CD of Gregorian chant during that recovery period too.
Since that time, Mr. Marline has only tried to get up on my bed once or twice. He was unceremoniously ejected.
