Great Dane is Obsessed with Blankets

April Livingston | February 16th, 2018

A dog named Floyd, who is an enormous Great Dane, has a serious addiction. His indulgence of choice is not dog treats or even peanut butter; it’s something just a bit more cozy. The obsession began when Floyd was just one year old. It was then that he realized how much he really loved blankets. Floyd’s family kept a large throw blanket on the back of their couch and he became fixated on it. In fact, he kept trying to steal the blanket for himself. So, the family decided he just needed his own blanket to keep. That’s when his fixation and obsession with blankets truly began.

Floyd, who is now two years old, does not go anywhere these days without a blanket in his mouth. The large black and white Great Dane is quite the sight, toting his blanket around. His enormous size means it is common for Floyd to accidentally tear blankets when he drags them around, so the family makes sure they always have plenty of spare blankets for him. Being without a blanket is simply not an option for Floyd.

So Floyd’s owner, a woman named Emily, makes sure there are plenty of blankets available for Floyd. He has one blanket in Emily’s home, another one in her car, and even has one at her boyfriend’s house. However, there are limitations to where Floyd can take his blanket. Emily has taught him that taking the blanket outside with him is his limit, so she’s trained to drop the blanket at the door and then head outside and get his blanket back when he comes in.

It is not exactly clear why Floyd the Great Dane loves blankets so much, but one thing is certain: he just can’t go anywhere without them. Emily says just like the blankets, Floyd is sweet, soft, and very cuddly—just like a Great Dane is!
