I am not macho, and I don't say 'we won't turn on the heat until November 1' and I am going to give in soon (34 outside? and inside, I DON'T WANT TO KNOW! WHAT HAPPENED TO AUGUST????).
We got Penny 2 springs ago, and she has a thin coat compared to our Labrador retrievers. We settled her in a deluxe basket with a blanket next to the bed when she moved in, with toys. She would sleep there, but she would also jump into bed and she has these eyes....and she would roll over and show her belly.....I SAID NO DOGS IN BED!
She was around age 2 when she moved in with us and had been a stray, and you get the feeling that in her past life, whereever that was, she had not been mistreated and she had also gotten used to sleeping in a bed.
We caved after 3 1/2 weeks. Penny is a beagle, and beagles burrow. She sleeps under the covers at night, between us (beagles are cuddly but maybe not good for a romantic couple, ahem) and she is HOT and TOASTY. One 19 pound beagle is like August sunshine under the covers.
