Samantha, and the other dogs, sleep in the dining room where the dog door is. We have it gated off so they can't roam the house. They each have a crate and there is one large dog bed they can choose from. I don't know exact times they wake but usually when I come downstairs (around 9am) they are outside sun bathing. On weekends when my husband gets up before me and lets them roam the house she will come upstairs and let me know that I have had enough sleep by pawing me in the face. During cold weather or rain all the dogs like to stay asleep inside. Oh and Samantha snores when she is in a deep sleep.
