Napoleon's Quest for a Nest

Thursday, November 7, 2013

This is Napoleon. He is technically Rick's dog, but I have become one of his people. You know one of those people who cannot pet another dog or hold a baby or small child without him freaking out. Jen...hey me let me sit on your lap...come on Jen.

Another thing I quickly discovered when I first met Napoleon is that he is a little nester. He likes to cuddle up either on a big pile of blankets or pillows, or even under the blankets and make a little nest. He also loves to sleep in our clothes while we are gone. I guess it helps him feel safe to smell us, or something like that. Yes he is a weird dog, but we love him.

So lately in his quest to find a nest, Napoleon has been caught in a few predicaments.

1. The closet:

Lately I keep finding Napoleon in our walk-in closet hiding among my clothes hanging on the lower rack. I had to put the kabosh on this though because 1. my clothes had dog hair all over them, and 2. one of my sweater dresses had a little snag probably from his little toenails. Well that and because he keeps getting stuck in the closet. I will come home from work to find him in there with the door closed, and I have no idea how long he has been in there. It could have been all day long. I feel really bad, but he doesn't seem to mind.

2. Rick's sweatshirt

Over the weekend Napoleon decided to snuggle up in Rick's sweatshirt. He snuggled up so much though that he got caught in the sleeve. He looked like a little caterpillar and it was so funny to see his little nose sticking out.

Abby got a little concerned and started dragging him backwards trying to get him out. She dragged him all the way out into the hallway and he was not happy about this. I was laughing so hard that I was on the ground, curled up into the fetal position, practically crying. Rick was in the bathroom getting ready and was like, what is your problem. I then pointed to Napoleon and he was like, yea he does that sometimes. Oh Napoleon!

Do you have a dog or cat that likes to nest?

  1. That's too funny, I'm so glad you got a picture! Casey loves to snuggle under blankets, but we've never found him in a really weird place like a sweatshirt sleeve.


We love hearing from you!
