    Default Digging at the carpet

    This week I have been on vacation which means lots of Tubby Mommy time. Well Tubby has started this new thing. He will be sleeping on the carpet , wakes up, sniffs where he's been sleeping then does like 2 - 3 little digs or scratches an cuddles bak up and falls asleep.

    What is this little weirdo doing?!

    Gotta make it more comfy. Loki does this too or he will circle until he finds the right spot.

    OMG this is soooooo true and sooooo funny! I must laugh when my girls sniff the rug. Yep. You were sitting there! Sometimes digging but usually just to get cozy.

    This is quite normal behaviour, they do it out of instinct, like digging or burrowing. A dog will scratch the place they want to lay down, it's a nesting thing, when they prepare to go to sleep, they do this to mark the spot, and to make his surroundings more comfortable.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Baxter will lay on his side, find a tucked in corner of his bed, and start scraping away at it while sniffing. It looks like digging, but he gets really really into it. Sometimes lets out a "Yelp!" and when I look over, he's just got his face buried in a crevice. He looks over at me, and dozes off. Cuz he's already laying down.

    Yep. Duddy does the same thing. He'll be a sleep on "his" chair, wake up, get up, turn around, scratch at the cushion, lay down and go back to sleep. Makes me laugh. He does the same thing in his crate, on the floor...wherever he happens to be sleeping! Funny dogs!

    Harlea does this every now and then. More so on her fluffy bed. She will nest it until she gets it how she wants it then plop down and doze off for a few hours.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.
