Gosh, I see that nose thing almost every morning, even in the summer, he just does not want to get out from under his blankie. It's like trying to wake up a tweenager (no, not a mistype). However, and I had no part in this teaching, if that's what it can be called, it seems that as soon as I start brushing my teeth he, most of the time, decides that its, at least time to start moving. Sometimes that is actually getting out of bed, but sometime that's just the 'Big 'ol "Stretch' with the head coming out from under Blankie. At that point it just a matter of being the 'mean mom' and pulling Blankie off him and he knows its time to go out….and all is right with the world.:D
Benji used to sleep under the covers and sometimes the cats would come into the bedroom and jump on the bed. The funniest thing was sometimes they would be on top of him without realising and start kneading, all you could hear were low growls as they trod him like a grape
And here I thought my prima donna teenage girls were special…
Lola flat out INSISTS I hold the blankets open for her to crawl under. She uses her cold nose to peck at my face and shoulders until I comply. She started this the very FIRST night she was home with us! She came home from the breeder's like this, and she never slept in a bed at the breeder's, so I don't know where on earth she got this from.
Callie will give me the creepy stare until I lift the blankets for her. She slept in a crate with her littermate at night before she came to live with me, and it took her a couple of weeks to figure out where Lola was going at night. Since then, she insists on being under the covers as well.
They will both sleep all day under the covers if I let them.
Two months after Callie came home to live with us, I went out of town, and Callie's breeder kept Lola & Callie for the weekend. They both slept in separate crates downstairs (dogs aren't allowed upstairs at the breeder's house). In the middle of the night, Callie's breeder woke up to find Callie in bed with her! She had escaped out of her crate, jumped a babygate & found a cozy bed to sleep in. No more crates for her!
And for some weird reason, the breeder thinks I spoil my girls…. I can't imagine why
I'm glad i'm not the only one with with a B that insists we raise the blanket/covers for them. Even when I do, I usually get woken up in the middle of the night with paws in my face. They feel the need to stretch out because they are now warm…
Magnum is under/over the covers a number of times every night. The weird thing is, if he's under, he prefers to snuggle against my husband, if he's over, he prefers to snuggle with me. (I think I overheat him when he's under (my DH starting calling me his furnace…when that certain point of a woman's life started) and I'm also a very restless sleeper.)
Leave it to a Basenji to let you know exactly what his wishes are!
Sonny's favorite place is under the blankets! One day a few weeks ago I had gotten out of the shower and usually he's right there waiting for me. this day he was no where to be found. its hard to loose a crazy basenji in a small place. but I couldn't find him anywhere. UNTIL I noticed a snoring lump on the bed under the covers. He had never gotten in the bed before without me being there 1st…Now its' the firts place I look when he disappears! :p
