"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
I draw the line at 6.
If our male Aussie ( Bipolar dog, really. Loves me all day but hates me when mama's home at night) will let me into the bedroom, that is.
All that said....
It could be worse.
"The History of our Revolution will be one continued Lye from one end to the other."
So true. My dog's have roam of the house as much as I do.

No wonder they're so confused: the rules keep changin'.
My Cocker has the run of the house - on the floor. No human beds. She snores and it is LOUD.
She has nice comfortable dog beds on the 1st & 2nd floor...hallways.
She is getting older now and I bought her a genuine MEMORY FOAM dog bed and she LOVES that.
Since they cannot legally resell any returned Memory Foam mattresses (& they are expensive) sometimes they cut them up into various size squares and sell them as dog beds.
They had some on sale last year at this local mattress warehouse.
She never wanted to go up on any furniture.
I don't let my dog play with the firearms.
LMAO!! So true! I go to bed with my wife, my kids are in their reposctive rooms and the dog is on her memory foam bed by my side. At some point, alomst every night the kids are between my wife and I and the dog is at the foot of the bed (on the bed). If my wife happens to get up before me, the dog steals her spot. It's hysterical.

It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!
I was sound asleep one night and my Wife socked me in the stomach for snoring and it was the doggone dog laying under the bed.
That's when I got her in the habit of sleeping in the hallway.
She has a great set-up out there though in Winter there is a radiator right there and a bowl of fresh water plus her stupid slobber crusted stuffed animals which she thinks are her puppies for some bizarre reason. What dang dog thinks a stuffed lobster and a stuffed monkey and elephant are puppies?
Her lobster is her favorite child. It smells like the zoo & it doesn't even remotely resemble any land mammal.

Even though our dogs are allowed on beds, couches, and chairs, they always ask permission if we are in the area. We camp, sometimes when it's really cold, and I am a perpetually frozen person. I stuff as many dogs as I can get into my sleeping bag. I have, really appreciated having a three dog night. LOL
I know Whose I am. I know where I'm going. I know the job I'm to do while I'm here. I am an ambassador. This is not my home.
Evil prospers when good people to do nothing. Please don't turn your back. ACT!
The dog in my avatar is getting old and he has pretty much earned any right around the house due to his stellar hunting career and the ability to bring me a beer from the refrigerator. Not sure how much more time he has left but he sure has learned how to manipulate us humans through the years so this OP rings true around here. And another rule that he has is when he's laying on the floor and you need by him, you must go around.
