Dog Has Sweetest Bedtime Routine

April Livingston | May 25th, 2019

When a puppy named Bentley first arrived in his new home he had two beloved possessions. They were a tan blanket and a stuffed dog that had the smell of his siblings and mother on them. Even after the scent wore off, he still very much loved those items and they were precious to him. Each night when it was time to wind down and go to bed, Bentley would run and grab one of those items to comfort him as he drifted off to sleep. Bentley is now almost two years old and his obsession with his blanket is still very much a part of his routine. It’s now the most adorable bedtime ritual. When his parents tell him it’s time for bed, he knows it’s time to grab something to snuggle in his bed.

Bentley’s mom, Kelly Madsen, says they think it’s adorable that he brings items to bed with him each night. While this means is there is a little less room in bed each night, but they’re okay with it because he carries the items back downstairs and puts them away each morning. Eventually, his stuffed dog and tan blanket became shredded over time, so he has gone out and found new items to comfort him at night. It varies from night to night, but he typically sticks with one item for a week or so before starting the hunt for a new bedtime companion. Sometimes it’s a stuffed moose, stuffed llama or even a blanket.

Other times, he’s brought a tennis ball to bed, peanut butter jars, bones, or even a pillow from the couch—he’s more than happy to find something to comfort him at night. This little quirk isn’t just restricted to bedtime, he also takes toys with him when he goes potty outside. One thing is certain: Bentley’s parents love him so much they’re more than happy to indulge him in his quirks!
