My Maltese is 13 years old. She has pretty much always slept in the bed with me. When I lived with my parents she would take turns between my bed, my brother's bed, and my parents' bed. Sometimes she'll sleep somewhere else but usually it's the bed. Well, recently I got her a new ramp for my bed. Now that she's learned to go down the ramp whenever I put her in the bed she just goes down the ramp. She keeps sleeping in the next room on the rug. I don't know why. A couple months ago she kept wanting to sleep on the sofa before I had the ramp. But now for at least a week she won't stay in the bed. I recall years ago she had a while where she'd sleep in the guestroom after my brother joined the Navy. Like she was pissed off that he left so she wanted to be alone. We'd find her in there alone in the dark. I wonder why now she's doing this though. Anyone had a dog do something similar? I guess it mainly bothers me for selfish reasons because I miss her being in my bed at night. She seems perfectly happy sleeping on the floor.
