If you were to visit my apartment in the winter months, it might not be apparent at first glance that I have a dog.
Just a blanket and jacket. Wait, but what’s that rustle underneath the blanket?
Who dares disturb the slumber of the great and powerful Blanket Monster!?!?
Eko’s short hair serves him well during warmer months, but it definitely leaves him more exposed when temperatures drop. Last winter I noticed that Eko was having trouble getting comfortable even when we were inside. He would pace and circle around his favorite spots and flop down with an exasperated whimper. As soon as I put a blanket over him, Eko settled down and slept like a baby. What I didn’t realize is that I had created a Blanket Monster!
The Blanket Monster only comes out on the coldest days and Eko is happy to remind me with a whine and a push when he wants an extra cover. I used to have one blanket on the couch for Eko and one for me, but Eko quickly made it known that he needed both and I was welcome to go put on a a sweatshirt.
The Blanket Monster frequently goes mobile. When I’m working at my desk the Blanket Monster will show up with his billowing cape in tow
Spoiled? Yes. But it’s totally worth having a Blanket Monster when I see how contently the little guy sleeps
Once you make a Blanket Monster, there’s no undoing it! Anyone else out there have a Blanket Monster?
