Yes, I'll sleep with you, but no kissing

Bandit and My Son Rob
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.
