When thinking about all of the problems going on around us on a daily basis, my problems are so small. I have a roof over my head, a beautiful wife, and a great job that I actually enjoy. Although there is still one thing I am struggling with right now and it has to do with my dogs, actually just one dog, Gypsy.

If you haven't heard me talk about Gypsy she is my sweetheart brindle boxer who was adopted just over one year ago. She is adorable in every sense of the word, and she loves nothing more than to cuddle with you. Of course, that is where the problem gets started.

Every night when I go to bed I have to kick Gypsy out of my spot, after giving her a hug good night. But normally twice or three times per night I wake up because Gypsy is back in bed with us and taking up most of the bed. When I wake up at 4am, this isn't my ideal sleeping pattern.

My solutions are to not let them sleep in our room, buy a bigger bed (king size), or just deal with it. As of now, I will just continue to deal with it. There is no way that the dogs won't have their dog beds in our room. Plus like I said it's Gypsy, my sweetheart, she can do no wrong. Ugh, the struggle is real! :)
