Our miniature pinscher – being such a very small dog – loves to sleep in a blanket. He gets tightly wound up in there and it’s like peeling back an onion to get him back out. Even in his crate at night, he buries himself into his bedding.
I wash it once in a while. He will look for it while it’s gone. When it comes back, his little face just lights up. My blankie, it’s here! Oh my blankie – I missed you! He’s so excited to see it again. It’s gotten ratty over the years, but to him, it’s very special. Which is why we keep it, even if it is a bright blue that doesn’t go with anything else in the room.
Yes, there is a dog wound up in this lump of blanket.
