As we have mentioned in the past, it is a good idea to modify a puppy's sleeping arrangements so that he gets used to adapting to different situations.
In the spirit of this guideline, we have reclaimed our bedroom. No more sharing it with our canine companion. His extra large crate has been moved to the basement, where he will be sleeping now. At least when it is warm. He may be given special privileges to stay upstairs in the back-up crate (located in the office) if the temperature dips too low, like last night.
Monte didn't seem to mind his new sleeping quarters. He was fast asleep and snoring before I made it to bed. This should reduce the amount of blond hair attached to the floor and my pillow. The only disadvantage is that I don't have any place to stack my clothes.
