Her Royal Highness...:)

...must have a pillow at night. This is crazy, she sleeps like a little person, with her head on the pillow...I've never seen anything like this. Every night, around 9 p.m. she starts looking at our bedroom door...then, we open the door and tell her to go to her bed, and she goes right in ( her crate ). Then, she lays her head on the pillow and sleeps that way. She only wants her pillow at night - during the day she sleeps wherever/in weird positions. I washed her pillow the other day, and forgot to pull it out of the dryer. She kept barking in her crate, and didn't calm down until I put her pillow back. I truly think that sometimes she knows what I'm thinking just by looking at me...We are so amazed by this little girl...and so in love with her too.

That is the cutest thing!!! How adorable.
Maybe she thinks that since you sleep like that she must too. How did the pillow thing get started?

I think it is a dobie thing. Both mine require pillows and to be covered with a blanket.

I love it!! She looks so precious!! My doberman is the same way. She sleeps like a human, and always has to have her head on a pillow! Sometimes she has to have a blanket too, I guess it depends on her mood lol!

Same with Bruce. He has a pillow AND a favorite blanket in his crate, and must be "tucked in" properly to go to bed lol.

Well, we always covered up Scarlet in a blanket in the winter months and she did have a pillow, but it was always propped up against the wall behind her bed. So she didn't really use it. In fact, most of the time she had her head hanging off of her bed. As long as her butt was on the doggie bed, that was all that mattered.

Very cute!

Rams doesn't have a pillow in his crate, but he does enjoy lying on a pillow on the couch. I will admit, I tuck him in every night with his favorite blankie.

Very adorable! D has adopted my son's ginormous stuffed dog for daytime napping in the living room, but at night, it must be the bedroom crate and the dalmatian sleeping puppy pillow. I'd get a picture, but it's always dark

At least it's just a pillow and not YOUR entire bed...Oh wait, that's what happens next! First the pillow for her, then it's YOUR pillow for her, then it's the entire bed. No matter what you do, you cannot avoid the unavoidable. Enjoy her while she's small because they don't stay that way long.

Thank you!!!I don't really know to be honest. When we first got her, she slept with us ( in our bed ) for the first few nights. Then, we would repeatedly wake up with her on our face ( not exaggerating ), so, we decided that she should sleep in her crate instead of on our bed/faces. I suppose she could've seen the face on the pillow "method" there, but I am not sure. But, ever since we put the pillow in the cage, she's been doing that...I see that many other members posted that their Dobies are crazy about pillows as well..i guess it may be the "Dobie thing"?
