Sleeping with dog

This is my new puppy: Zaku.
He is 9 weeks old and he begs to sleep with me every night. Let me describe the situation a little more: I have wooden floor in my bedroom, so until Zaku is fully potty trained he can't access my room.
Right now I'm sleeping in the living room, on the sofa, because I want to keep an eye on him, in order to prevent potty accidents. He bags to sleep with me every night, and right now I'm ok with that, because the sofa is ok. The problem is that in the future I don't want him to sleep in my bed, and I don't want to get him used to sleep with me.
I tried to put him in the crate but he came out during night. I tried to lock the crate, but he cried for 30 minutes straight and ended up being crate-traumatized, now he don't even get close to it.
In the future the he will sleep on his own bed, so the whole crate thing is just to get him used not to sleep with daddy.
What should I do?
Cat Has Crumbly Poo

My cat has really crumbly poo. It's very light coloured, like sand, and is very crumbly. He doesn't always go like this, but when he does, it ends up outside of the litter box. (I think he has a hard time pushing it all out.) I found some outside the litter box again this morning, but in a rush to get to work didn't take a photo. This happens once every few months.
I've asked at different vets and they just say to put pumpkin in his food. I do that, I also have tried psyllium husks, and a yogurt treat for dogs and putting that in there. He eats raw food because dry food makes him puke. He does need his anal glands expelled every now and then. It was much worse before, but he hasn't scooted for months. The vet did a culture on the glands to make sure they weren't infected. (They weren't.)
He is indoors and out goes outside in the summer on a leash.
I've no idea what this is or what I can do to fix it.
