Try a great pyrenees and a large lab. The lab gets the pillows and the Pyrenees get the rest of the bed diagonally. And if you try to move either they go into sack of potatoes mode...

Oh I feel your pain Too-funny I guess I'm a little lucky that mine are WAY smaller.... now IF you were up north during the cold seasons, you'd never have to worry about getting cold during the night Okay and they don't complain about the Cpap!!! Big Grin

great pyrenees / Australian shep mix here. Although the big guy is too old to be jumping on beds now.

My cat is so annoying. When he gets up he just circles the bed walking on both of us until finally we had enough and get up.

Actually your cat must be quite intelligent to 'know' how to get one or both of you awake so you will get up and feed him/her.

Actually you do realize that with cats you are the pet and they are the master. They just let you think you are in charge...

I have a Yorkie (who THINKS he's a great pyrenees) and a Pit Bull (who could care less as long as he gets to sleep) My kitty won't get on the bed because the Yorkie
messes with her, & the Pit Bull keeps sleepin' & snoring!! (is there such a thing as a doggie Cpap?) Thinking-about
