This in itself really isn't a problem ... but it does have one big, inconvenient consequence.
The dog gets banished from his room.
Now there are two alternative solutions to this problem ... and I don't like either of them.
Buster can spend the night in the family room ... with any number of dog beds and/or sofas to sleep on. He has access to his water and his doggy door should he need a little midnight tinkle. On the downside he will ...without fail ... cry all night. ALL night.
Buster can sleep in my room ... on my bed. For it would be on my bed ... no doggy bed in the corner will suffice. He will make himself extremely comfortable ... in the process I will be made extremely uncomfortable. He will settle down with a sigh of pleasure and sleep for the next ten hours ... I will be forced to lie with my body contorted into some mad zigzag shape .. in which no human body was meant to lie ... ever. He will fall rapidly into a contented sleep ... I will lie awake the entire night overheating from the furry hot water bottle that insists on pressing itself against me.
Buster chose option two.
