|Oh, my goodness! The Poop babies are lucky!
Well my daddy never allowed me in the bed with him. But when he'd leave for work, mom would put only me in bed with her in the morning. Now, because of my leg, I'm never allowed on the bed. So my mommy made a bed on the floor next to her bed, human adult sized. I sleep there at night, and my mom joins me in the morning.
Halo at night sleeps in mom's room too, like me, but she's in a baby playpen. It has her bed, water, & newspaper in it.
For Shyla, remember, Halo and I do not like her at all, so she sleeps in the room across from us in a playpen too like Halo. Mom just doesn't want her to get into any mischief. Same playpen set up as Halo, but with a board over half of it, in case she tries to jump, it's not possible.
As for kitty, Story isn't allowed in either of these two rooms at night. My mom has playtime with her right before bedtime, so that way Story sleeps through the whole night without any problems.
All of us together during the day are quite a handful for my mom. So come nighttime my mom needs the peace and quiet. This setup works very well for us.
My mom wishes I could sleep in bed with her though, but at least we share the bed on the floor in the mornings or if dad is gone.
Sparky, I think you and Tucker probably miss sleeping with your mom. If you have to be kenneled, (is that a word?) maybe your kennels or gated area could be close to your mom. AT the old house, my dad wanted me kenneled. Not only did I have to have my kennel right next to my mom on the nightstand, but my mom used to have to have her hand right next to me. I'm very attached to my mom. If not, I'd be restless and whimper a bit.
Also,at our house, we all arent allowed the same privileges . If your mom misses sleeping with a pup or pups, those of you who don't misbehave should be able to sleep in bed with her. I'm allowed more privileges than my sisters, because I don't have to be as supervised as they all do. It all depends on your mom. Maybe she'd feel badly only letting some of you on the bed.
Tucker's issues also could improve, and then he could be allowed on the bed again. Your mom could try things out, then change them as needed. But your mom definitely needs her sleep.
