we keep our house around 60 through the night. Our 11 year old Lab sleeps on the floor at first and then goes to her bed on the floor...3 inches of foam with cover. Is she looking for warmth?

 I think it's partially for the warmth and partially because the softness feels better on their older bones. We started noticing our older labs start doing this around 12 years of age.
