Our dogs might have their own beds to sleep in but somehow they always end up sleeping in ours.
After all, why would they want to sleep in their own bed when they can snuggle with us?
While we’re a fan of cuddles with our pet pooches, they seem to take up so much space and often sprawl themselves in the most awkward of positions leaving little room for us, their owners.
But how can we be mad at our fluffy little bundles of joy? They’re just too cute!
It seems we’re not alone – dog owners everywhere understand our frustrations with lots of people sharing photos of their sleepy pets.
