Penny’s developed a strategy to ensure she’s comfy, with or without my help

First she checks the coast is clear…

Then Penny grabs a mouth full of covers and flops down with them

The cover is supposed to cover the ugly futon…

But when I see Penny happily self-snuggled I’m happy to bend the rules

Anyone else have pups who tuck themselves in?

Comments for Puppy Undercover

  1. Victoria says:

    yeah – we cover the couches to protect them and mine take the covers off and then sleep on the couch

    Looks like a good plan for winter! Hey, we have a new member in our sniffing field trip group, a 3 yr old Ridgeback who happens to have a 6 mo old sister. Seeing those two together it looks just like you two! We told them to check out your blog, I think they would love it!

  3. I bet Penny has the same genes like Easy every blanket turns into a cave with peakholes :o) … but after all we are happy people… we can buy any couch no matter what color or design, it’s anyway always covered with a blanket :o)

  4. I wish Neeka would tuck herself in! She sleeps at the foot of our bed and during the night she’ll push me with her paw and let out a little wine. Not loud; just enough to get my attention (as if the paw didn’t already). I throw her blanket over her and all is well. Until she fidgets too much and it falls off. Then it’s a repeat. I’m not sure I wake up for it anymore.

  5. Kismet says:

    I was under the impression that Penny always bothered Eko when she slept.

  6. Jeff says:

    If by tucking not themselves in, you mean by nosing and or pawing me until I lift the blankets so stryder can walk under and curl up. Yes he can.

  7. Bethany says:

    One of our Ridgies, Darby or as we lovingly call her Mayhem from the commercials, starts out in her own bed on the floor and ever so quietly paw by paw sneaks onto the bed. Once there she gently paws my face so that I lift the covers and she can crawl in.

  8. Penny is such a smarty! When I need my covers rearranged, I crawl up next to Mom’s head and stand there breathing on her till she wakes up and tucks me in properly. I try not to do this more than 99 times a night….

    Love and licks,
    Cupcake

  9. Yikes, I just got a crick in my neck from watching Penny contort with the covers! 🙂 Too cute.

  10. Cathy & Banjo says:

    Banjo likes to dig in and rearrange blankets on our futon. He also likes to drape as many body parts as possible on any available throw pillows, so that the humans often end up without pillows… or space on the futon for that matter!

    Brilliant – clever girl!

  12. Yep, Daisy tucks herself into the sleeping bag when it’s out. Big sleeping bag, tiny dog, but it’s all hers. 🙂

  13. our cat just did the same thing yesterday!!!!! lol! I cracked up when I saw that he had covered himself up!

  14. Jack has a blankie, but he just bunches it up to use as a pillow.

  15. Rose says:

    I think I have that same futon and cover… at least the cover looks pretty familiar.

  16. Eve says:

    OH yes Juley here will work her covers that she has on her bed until she is satisfied completely. One evening I got up to go back to check on her and found her with her covers around her head & body looking like a little old lady all chilled! It took me a minute to realize that it was her cause all that was sticking out was her eyes & snout!

  17. fredrieka says:

    I have a pink sleeping bag which I pull all over my crate and I curl up on or under it, it is my binkie

  18. kimberlygauthier says:

    3 out of 4 of our dogs do this. It’s pretty hilarious. Lots of repositioning the blankets that cover the sofa and then a heavy plop down. They don’t cover themselves, just make a kind of nest. Makes me smile.

  19. No way did she really do that??? What a girl!
