As I have explained before, Bass, the dog, has Chihuahua genes. Chichuahuas’ make nests.
They go in things, under things, and then churn until it becomes comfortable to them, to their specifications. It has to be to their specifications. The Furlongs can premake a nest, but if it is not correct, it will be remade until it is. A blanket, any blanket, is a probable nest. Our beds have to be protected otherwise our bedding is re arranged without our permission so that bedtime becomes a surprise. Bass loves duvets as much as blankets.
So we bought him his own.
He likes it very much. It’s a pure white child bed duvet without a cover.
Old bedtime nest
New duvet nest
You will notice the dog is black. You don’t know that the dog ‘sheds’ about now. Black hairs shedding in clumps on a white duvet look like tarantula infestations which frighten old people.
So we ordered a duvet cover for him. Fortunately he took an instant delight in it. He made a nest as soon as I took it out of the packet. Now every bedtime looks like this…..
Inside there is a sleeping dog. A happy sleeping dog.
And I can shake the tarantulas out into the garden because they don’t stick to cotton as much as polyester fibre!
