Does anyone else have a small, toy sized dog that insists on sleeping on your shoulders or head?

I have a chorkie, and he sleeps on my shoulder like a bird or something. Why?

  • Yeah... that would not be happening in my house. No dogs in my bed.

    If you don't like it then train him to stop doing it.

  • I don't mind it. I actually find it humerous. And he's not in my bed. He's sitting on my shoulder while I'm on here. Question didn't really pertain to ya I guess. :)

  • I was just wondering why they do that. It's so funny. My friend has his sister and she does it too! They are only like 2 lbs each.

  • Growing up had a schnauzer/poodle mix that slept around my head and her tail under my chin. When I moved out on my own I got a shih tzu and he would love to sit/ride on my shoulder in the car or when I carried him. That was his "safe place" that he went to when he got scared.

  • Nope...he likes to lay on my chest with his head between my boobs. My Shiba Inu likes to lay on my feet...that works well...she's fluffy and keeps my toes warm.
