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!

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

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.
