Where does the dog sleep?

We wouldn't think of camping without Dixie our 4 year old mini golden doodle. In our Casita she has a cozy den under the permanent bed. We are signed up for a new Escape 19 and were wondering whether Dixie will be happy in the cavernous space under the queen size bed in the 19. Does anyone have any experience traveling with a dog and where does it sleep?

All 9 lbs of her sleeps in the bed with us when traveling, curls up somewhere down by our feet so it's no big deal. She will not (mostly her choice) sleep in our bed at home, prefers hers.

We make up the forward dinette into a bed for Baxter, and he alternates between that and the floor. Sleeping under the forward dinette is a little problematic, because of the table post mount, but sometimes he squeezes part way in. He's never been keen on sleeping under the main bed, which is the aft dinette, although there's lots of room.

Often on the bed, especially when cold and the temps inside is turned low. When hotter out he prefers the floor, and either on a mat or not, but then with 3/8" of cork, anywhere on the floor would be warm.

Murphy-the-dog sleeps under our 17b bed (we have a dog bed down there for him) or on one of the front dinette cushions. Occasionally, if there is lightening, he will want to be close to us and sleeps on the bed.

Sleeps on the bed. Has to be lifted up and down due to arthritis.

I found a dog bed that fits nicely in our 19's doorway area, and that's her spot. During the day the dog bed slides on edge in front of the forward table pillar, or outside. If the alarm doesn't wake my wife, the dog has the most amazing stealth moves to slink up onto the foot of the bed undetected.

On cold nights Ben is better than a hot water bottle.

Our last dog was Ben too. We had like the name for a kid, but Ben Bennett did not ring well though. But, it worked fine for a dog.
