At six months old, Penny only knows the warm sun of late spring and summer. But fall is now in full swing and Penny is getting her first taste of colder temperatures. Like all Ridgebacks before her, Penny loves heat and will do just about anything to warm up. 6.1

Yesterday I saw poor Penny squish herself on the corner of the futon to share some of Eko’s body heat

Eko is well versed in surviving the depths of winter with the help of a few blankets (we call him the Blanket Monster for good reason) but until now Penny has never needed one. Yesterday was another first as I wrapped Penny in her first puppy-burrito. Her reaction was priceless.

At first Penny was completely confused. I could see she was about to get up and free herself. Then it clicked…

6.3

“Oh, that’s good.”

6.4

Penny went from cold and shivering to cozy and snoring in about three seconds

And don’t think Eko missed out.

6.5

“Pretty sweet deal, right sis?”

Blanket Monster and Blanket Monster Jr. have now combined forces to form Super Blanket Monster!

6.6

Warm. Full. Happy

I have a feeling I’m going to see a lot of this scene this fall/winter

For the past few years I have been Eko’s go-to for sharing blankets/body heat but by the looks of it I think I’ve lost my job!

    momwithoutpaws just got me a sleeping bag she is hoping I will figure out how to get inside it. I go under my pillow I will figure it out

  2. What great shots of Penny’s first burrito experience! I was feeling sorry for her in the first shot all squished up next to Eko for warmth but she looks like she’s truly in heaven in the blankie! Now you have a BIG burrito and a not so big one occupying that couch……! Too darn cute!!

  3. I totally agree blankies are essential…. must laugh as I saw Eko’s hind paws the last picture (yes, I should wear glasses lol)

    My vizsla as a pup never went for the blanket until his first winter but now in the summer he wants to be under one at bed time because he feels the blankets keep us too far apart. Even in those warm summers when I don’t have a light blanket he throws a fit until I get one for him to snuggle next to me.

    our boys love their blankets – so much so that Ziggy our GSP wakes us up in the middle of the night if his blanket has come off because he is cold. The things we do for our kids eh tee hee

    How cute are they! Oh my! We like sun puddles, but we have enough fur, we don’t need blankets unless we are seriously ill or something.

  7. I’ve even been known to throw in a heating pad. It was when our Becca was going through chemo and she was pretty sick a snuggly blanket wasn’t enough…i gave her a heating pad too. Talk about snuggly…

    When Penny grows up, will you need a larger sofa?

  11. That is off-the-charts cute! I can just imagine how cozy that must feel to them. 🙂

    Your dogs are so sweet! Love the photos! How exciting to have two dogs now, and one a pup who can learn from the other. Have a great day!
