You might try crating him at night. It will help him get the idea that at night it's time to sleep and not play. Once he's older and has the idea, you can go back to him sleeping bedside. I had to do this with our dog Rosco because he wanted to "play" (more like terrorize) my cats. A small crate for his size is pretty inexpensive and will save your sanity.

My husband sleeps with his eyes like that. Wake up half the time thinking I'm next to a corpse. Good thing he's a loud breather.

Thanks everyone! Cooper's ego is over inflated with all the lovely comments about him

When I got home last night my OH mounted the tree to a table lol!

Last night Cooper was great! settled down very well in between his outside breaks, we want to be as consistent as possible, so hopefully he's getting the idea now

omg I thought Cooper was freaky! May I suggest this as a possible Christmas present??

Cooper is beautiful! Definitely worth a lot of cuddles. He does sleep weird though, LOL
So, is it voice? Or just the face
that captures me, and haunts me so.
Or, am I meant to never know?

Every time I see a puppy Basset, I'm reminded of WHY I started into this so special breed, all those years ago now.

Boy can be dream, for one so young. I don't think any of mine has had such a long dream Bless.

Just to say GOOD that you've raised the tree off the floor - that's only the start. We have got to the point where we don't have one these days at all. Sad, but true. Secondly, if you can manage without a crate, fine, but although we didn't have these for our first two, after moving to Canada where they use(d) them all the time although it was at shows that we first saw that. Since then we have always had one or two (or three) around. I find them most useful for puppies now (we had a puppy pen when we were breeding) to keep them safe and out of mischief. Also for car travel, and for recovering patients. I can recommend you get one and get your lad used to one, even if you don't use it all the time.

Have fun - and just remember, you won't stop with just one

Cooper is beautiful. You are lucky he is happy to be photographed, ours never sits still, unless asleep, I am sure he does it on purpose.
