My awesome boys made this sign for me this past Christmas.
When I started sleeping with my dog, it was because she was cold. The winter fire hadn't been lit and she lay shivering in the dark corner of my bedroom. I myself laid awake with chronic insomnia and cold. I lifted up the corner of my duvet and she slithered under the covers. We slept so soundly that night, huddling for warmth. Every morning my husband gets up at 4:30 to go to work. Hubby out, dog in. This is our morning ritual.
