    This sounds like a good book, too.  Car rides usually end in fun places like the Wiener Dog Races or the dog park!

    This is my favorite food!  I'm not sure if I love eating, walking, or playing more!

    My people call this the "Star Trek Door".  I love it because I can open it but the squirrels can't!

    My old harness made me want to pull as hard as I could.  This one is much more relaxing!

Blankets and Pillows

I am very thankful for blankets and pillows.  There's no place that I feel more safe and warm than under a blanket or pillow.  (It's even better if I'm on a lap under a blanket.)

Five years ago, when I arrived at my new home, one of the first things I did was jump on the couch, knock a pillow over, and slip under it.  I looked so young back then!

Safe and warm in my new home

Soon afterwards, I found that it also felt nice to be under a blanket.

Under a blanket - so comfortable

After much experimentation, I found that I could combine pillows with blankets for an amazing level of comfort.

Does it get better than this?My people are well aware of my love for pillows and blankets, so they've given me a variety of blankets over the years.  One of my favorite is my dachshund blanket.

There wasn't much good about kennel rest, but I did get to combine two of my favorite things while on rest: eating and blankets!

Sorry for droning on and on about pillows and blankets.  When I get on a topic that I love, it's difficult for me to stop.  I have a lot more to say on the topic, but I'll save that for later!  Let me know if you need any advice on how to best use blankets and pillows.

I agree with you! I have a variety of blankets too and feel very happy under a blanket. Also I like combine blankets or pillows with toys.

Hi Cannelle! It's so nice to hear from you. I haven't taken my regular toys under a blanket, but I do love chewing on one of my bones under a blanket. I'll have to try other toys as well. My people and I also looked at your blog. We can't read it because we don't know Spanish, but we like all the pictures. :-)

Hi again, Cannelle. We figured out how to translate the blog with the Chrome browser, so we can at least get an idea of what the blog says. I'm going to add it to my list of links.
