Yep, I think we have a nester!
In the past, we’ve had dogs who scrap up their beds from time to time to get comfy, but Jeffie takes it to the extreme. He likes make darned sure there is enough padding for his old bones.
And he’ll turn around, not the traditional three times, but as many as fourteen or fifteen times before he’ll lay down, thus rucking his beds up even further.
Sometimes he’ll collect other beds for his bed pile. In this next picture, he has scraped together two beds plus the top part of the one Sid is lying on, leaving his companion to make do with the base -
And he looooves the comfort of a pillow for his bony old head. A whole dog bed will do for that, since his humans have not been considerate enough to provide him with a real pillow for his own use.
But don’t worry too much about Sid. He actually likes to lie on the carpet quite a lot of the time and because he’s a tripod, he feels unsafe if a bed is too squishy – hence the sleeping bag and duvet ‘dog beds’ you can see in these pictures.
And there are times he simply gets there first, leaving Jeffie to make do with the edge!
Yes, yes. I know Jeffie could simply move around and creep in the other side and have quite enough space, thank-you-very-much, but Jeffie can be a tad challenged in the common sense department at times!
Never mind. We love him just as he is … which is just as well, really, on those occasions when he throws up on the carpet.
