    I found this and thought this information may be useful as it mentions NEW diseases......

    Pet owners should not let their dogs sleep in or on their bed, or even in the bedroom because of the risk of disease transmission, according to one of the country’s leading veterinary surgeons.

    Fred Landeg, who is stepping down as the most senior government veterinary officer, said that people needed to be more aware that new and emerging diseases were just as likely to affect household pets as farm animals.

    Many of these diseases may also be transmittable from animals to humans.

    Dr Landeg, who is familiar for his TV appearances explaining the fight against Asian flu, foot-and-mouth, and bluetongue outbreaks, said that pet owners should also be vigilant about having pets in the kitchen.

    Hi David

    I completely agree with you, but I do think it is good to keep up with new developments, especially when health is involved. At least we can then make informed decisions.:Smile:

    Sharon,

    I think the main problem today is that our immune systems are not as hardy as they were many years ago when things were not as sterile. Yes it is good to be informed and we can make our own choices.

    I used to: "Go to work on an Egg" as I was advised at the time - then somebody told me about salmonella so I went to work on a "Big Mac" instead - then somebody told me about mad-cow disease BUT somebody else told me I couldn't catch it so I was alright - then I went to work on a "full Monty" until somebody told me about cholesteral problems...... so now I've given up going to work :thumb::thumb:

    Whats the point in wanting to live longer if your not living?

    I don't want to arrive in heaven with a perfect body!
    I want it to crash through the pearly gates and do a handbrake skid screaming "WOOHOO" that was a rush!

    ours use to sleep on our bed when tony worked away, wasn't happy when tony came home, and he lost his place, if you worried about everything you were told you wouldnt enjoy life. he only asked to be loved never argued with me,and always brought a smile to my face sadly he had a stroke and had to be put down, still miss him but now his ashes sleep on the bedside table and no one disturbs him. but whatever choice you make is what makes you happy. each to their own I say,

    When we are away ours sleeps in a quilt lined dogs bed in the awning protecting us - better than any security alarm system lol.
    When we are home he sleeps beside the only door into our property - again a wonderful security protection.

    Unfortunately we cannot take Buddy with us yet as he is a rescue dog and still
    settling down so we pop him in the local kennels.

    When we had our Bonny she used to sleep at the front between the seat on a fur rug - on guard so to speak and god help anyone who tried to come in without our say so.

    She was as soft as a brush but very keen and a good house dog.

    Where they are told! A dog is an animal not a person. Needs their own bed/space. Besides I don't sleep with dogs hee hee
