Pets — should they be in your bedrooms or not?

*Collaborative Post

Do you have a cat or a dog? Do you let your dog or cat sleep in your bedroom or on your bed? You are certainly not alone, as a survey commissioned by leading pet insurer Animal Friends found that nearly half of owners sleep with their pets. My dog has always slept in, or next to my bed and she is now 15 years old. I personally have no issue with sharing a bedroom with a pet because I view them as part of the family.

 

So, do you think it is good idea to welcome your pet into your bedroom? Fitted bedroom specialists DM Design has analysed the arguments both for and against this decision: Continue reading “Pets — should they be in your bedrooms or not?”

Children and Dogs

We have a family dog. She has been around a while but was my first baby so when we added a new addition in the form of a human baby it got me to thinking…

As I walked my lovely old girl today in the drizzle I started to reminisce about all the places we have been together, how many walks there have been and wondering how many will be left. I got Molly when I was 19 and she was 7 months old. She already had her name Continue reading “Children and Dogs”
