Blanket Pacifier

Alex is 1 year old this weekend My how time flies.

I figured this was more of a puppy question than anything and I've been AWOL from DT for awhile. Alex has always done it but I figured I'd see if it is common. He has plenty of blankets in his crate and over the course of the day will take them out of the crate if he feels like taking a nap. He stretches it out on the floor, lays on top, and then takes a mouthful before falling asleep..... Normal or weird?

And for kicks, a weird picture of the obsession we have with the driver's seat.

That's an awesome picture!

I can't speak from experience, but this has been discussed a few times:

Can we talk blanket sucking??

Thanks for the link... I guess he's normal! Luckily we have a TON of old blankets that he can turn into swiss cheese. At least he knows better than to rip up pillows or other fabric!

Be careful that he isn't eating the blanket pieces. They can cause an obstruction.

Also keep in mind there are some studies that suggest sucking is correlated to PICA in Dobermans. I'd keep a good eye out to make sure he isn't an eater of objects.

My boy who died in August was a big blankie sucker, he never ate any of his blankies it relaxed him so I never felt the need to stop him. I miss watching him fall asleep that way. I'm fostering a girl who sucks her flank.

Our girl Cricket was a blanket sucked as well, never chewed them, but would just suck them as she went to sleep. My friend's Giant Schnauzer boy sucks blankets too.

He's not, we were very careful when this habit started. He tears and leaves pieces in a nice decorative fashion on the carpet.
