Missy always slept by the side of my bed underneath a table. It was her spot. After I lost her I missed seeing a dog by the side of my bed. Oh I still had them in my room but they were either on the bed (Kenzi) or curled up on a dog bed on the other side (Kipp). It was one of the little things that I missed.
A couple months ago Kipp started giving up his bed for a time and curling up on the floor along side of mine. He now goes to sleep there, moves to his bed in the middle of the night, then back along side of mine by the time I get up in the morning.
It makes me smile.
