We got our bulldog puppy last week.  The first 2 nights, we didn’t have the crate together, so we brought her up into our bedroom and she slept in a dog bed on the floor beside our bed.  She woke up once in the middle of the night to be taken out and seemed fine other wise. The next few nights, we put her in the crate, but she cried quite a bit, so I ended up sleeping on the couch in our family room beside her and when she cried, I layed on the floor beside her and she seemed to calm right down.  Our vet recommended her sleeping in the crate, but we seemed to have better luck in the doggie bed beside us.  Any thoughts/advice on this?  Thanks!!!
