Dogs on the Bed

Probably part of my back and neck problems is the number of dogs on the bed with me at night… Lucy and Levi have to be on the bed or they get upset. They are, you know, top dogs in the house and have been on the bed for almost 9 years and so that is just the way things are.

I think I’m going to go to Ikea tonight and look for a mattress pad… pillow top. Now I don’t know if those are, just always, softer than mattresses? They have the Sultan Mattresses and pads. I guess I’ll find out. I can’t find anything on the web that has any kind of rating, or review, of pillow top mattress pads to determine if they are softer than the mattress itself.

Hrmph. I feel like crap today and I’m still in pain, though Ibuprophin has helped. Good thing I have life insurance so if my back and neck kill me, my husband and dogs will be fine. :p

  1. Hey Cyn.. can you get to a Whole Foods and pick up some Topricin Cream or Arnica Homeopathic?

  2. I probably can.. I will do that tonight on the way home from work. What do they do? I always forget to ask your opinion.. as you always have such helpful things to offer!

  4. Ahh sorry you aren’t feeling well.

    I couldn’t live without my dogs on the bed. Well, Marley chooses to sleep on the couch but Dylan is my security blanket – he keeps me warm and safe.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  6. ONE little collie in bed with us is more than enough; I swear she takes up most of our king sized bed and tries to push us off as we sleep.

    I bought a pillow top mattress pad at WalMart of all places, and it’s NICE. I love the softness it added, even though our mattress is pillow top!

    Hope your back is better!!

  9. Hi Lindsay… no they don’t know how lucky they are. They are spoiled and think they deserve it! Which, really, they do lol.

  11. I’m so in the same boat… I have two or three dogs on the bed with me at night and I end up kicking them off in the middle of the night because I am forced into such an uncomfortable position. Feeling any better today? Maybe you should try a sleep number bed if the pillowtop doesnt help.

  14. Hi Lora, your dogs are much bigger than mine! 🙂 Those sleep number beds sound nice… the couch, last night, was actually quite comfortable!
