Dog Brothers Get Bunk Beds So They Can Always Sleep Together

“I can't get them out of the beds to go out at night. Normally when I come home after work they're all over me, but today they didn't even get up."

Rowdy and Rigby have been living together for almost two years now and couldn’t be happier about it. They adore each other and love doing everything together — though their personalities are very different, and they often have very different approaches to handling life. 

“Rowdy is a rule-follower, and gets very anxious when things aren't just-so,” Luke Swanberg, the pair’s dad, told The Dodo. “He wakes me up when my alarm doesn't go off because he knows something isn't right. Rigby is a lover, he always wants to snuggle and give kisses. When he plays, he bounces around like a dope and loves keep-away. Sometimes they argue over toys and who gets pets, but they snuggle up with each other all the time.”

Despite their differences, Rowdy and Rigby always stick together, through both good times …

… and bad.

One of the pair’s favorite activities is snuggling up together, often in the same dog bed only meant to fit one of them, so their dad had the brilliant idea to build them a set of bunk beds — so they could always sleep together, no matter what.

“I made the bunk beds as a random crazy idea, but they didn't turn out great at first, so we didn't use them for a while,” Swanberg said. “Then recently I finished them in a weekend. I still need to make some steps for them to get in and out of the top easier.” 

Rowdy and Rigby both fell in love with the bunk beds as soon as they saw them, and have been sleeping in them constantly ever since …

… but still end up sleeping in the same bed sharing the bottom bunk, because apparently, they just can’t get enough of each other.

“They've been using them nonstop,” Swanberg said. “I can't get them out of the beds to go out at night. Normally when I come home after work they're all over me, but today they didn't even get up. There's no designated spots, but until I get the steps made, the bottom bunk seems to be the favorite for both.” 

Maybe once the steps are made, the brothers will spend a little more time in their separate bunks — but probably not, because unlike many sibling pairs out there, these two LOVE to share.
