hyman.3 3 should you let your pet share your blankets and your bed? 3 as don champion reports... a recent mayo clinic study is challenging the conventional wisdom that animals in the bedroom can mess with your sleep. 3 patricia (patree-shia) sullivan had canine company in bed as soon as she brought home her first puppy.(sot patricia sullivan/dog owner) "he started to cry, and whimper and i felt sorry for him and i put him on my bed and he curled up in a ball and he was asleep and he's been there ever since."(track 2) sleep experts have long thought that pets in the bedroom are disruptive to a person's sleep but a recent mayo clinic survey found 41 percent of sleep patients who share their beds with their animals find it beneficial.

(sot sullivan) "if their feet were really wet, i'd wipe them off." sullivan says her dogs don't just relax her, they go a step further.(sot)"if i stay up too late the dogs remind me to go to bed. they actually walk into my bedroom, look at me like c'mon let's go. laughs. ps: they do."and even though their barking sometimes wakes her up, she says she wouldn't have it any other way.don champion, cbs news, springfield, new jersey. 3 the study did not look at whether different types of pets or different species were more disruptive than others. the study's authors hope to focus on those areas in future research. 3
