Hot Stuff: three in a bed, doggy-style

A reader’s girlfriend draws the line at sharing the bed with a dog

Dear Hot Stuff,

 

My girlfriend and I have just begun to do sleep-overs - which is great and all, don't get me wrong - but ever since, my dog has been relegated to the sofa! My girlfriend simply refuses to let her sleep on the bed with us and I can tell she (the dog) is very unhappy... 

 

I love sleeping with my girl but I think that I love sleeping with my dog more and the whole thing, silly though it may seem, makes me question if I could ever fall in love with someone who doesn't love my dog!

 

Am I just being daft?

Dear Canine-Crush from Canterbury,

 

Well now, my poor darling, I totally 100% sympathize with your current predicament, even though it's more than likely that some readers are scratching their heads and thinking WTF?

 

I too, have a lovely, shiny, smelly baby doggy-woggy-woo, whom I absolutely adore and who is, just like yours it sounds, the love of my life. Luckily my girlfriend lets her sleep with us though. (They're both French and big on ménage-à-trois…) So whilst I fully comprehend the sheer scale, size and weight of the problem at hand, I do think we should treat it with a dash of perspective. 

 

Let's face it, it's probably not normal that we privilege a romantic evening in bed with our dogs over our girlfriends.

 

Or is it?

 

Anyway, we could debate the advantages (dogs don't hog the sheets) and disadvantages  (spooning's off the cards) of canine cuddling another day. In the meantime I suggest your girlfriend and your dog go on a date and get to know one another a little more intimately. Perhaps even spend a night together (perhaps "in one another's company" would be a better phrase; you're all bloody filthy). Once her opinion of pooch bed-sharing is more balanced, then a much more informed discussion could be had. She might fall in love with doggy breath and hairs in the bed. But until then, she'll never know!

 

Remember, her resistance doesn't make her a bad person. Maybes she's just more of a cat person? Ooh, now there's an idea!
