21 per cent of Americans sleep with a pet. According to a survey of 2 countries by the National Sleep Foundation. Bandit is a Jack (Parsons) Russell terrier who begins looking at me with sleepy eyes around 9:00 pm when Bandit is ready for bed. In fact he is doing it as I write this post. When I come to bed he will paw at me until I lift up the covers and allow him to crawl under the covers where he likes to sleep at my feet. I know that modern flea control and dewormers have made me more comfortable with this sleeping arrangement. I know Bandit's health status well. I still say no to kissing.
