So, we took a few of your suggestions, mainly that we change the time of day we exercise her. It really does make a difference - she sleeps maybe an hour later if we get her evening exercise at nine or ten than if we exercise her at seven or eight. Also, something we took a chance on yesterday: a dog bed!
We were worried that she would wander about all night if she wasn't crated, but we decided to give it a try on a hunch. We got her a cushy dog bed to put next to ours, and surprise, she slept almost all night long, with minimal fussing! Apparently all she really wanted was to be nearer to us at night than her crate allowed (it's in the room, but on the opposite wall). This makes sense, since she's such a little velcro girl. She's a little large to allow directly on our bed, so this makes a good compromise, and she seems to love it. Thanks for all your help, everyone
