Many people have a certain list of things that they like to do before they hit the sack. I like to make sure all lights are off, doors are locked, thermostats set and teeth brushed. Oshie has a ritual too. Parts of his ritual are cute and others are down right deplorable. Like a child, Oshie has a favorite blankie. The blanket is one that we have had for him since the day we brought him home. Every evening when it is time to go to bed, Oshie waits by the door to go outside. Once he is done marking the bushes for the millionth time he comes in and heads upstairs. Next he grabs his favorite blankie and brings it to the side of our bed. He then waits to be told to jump up ( yes he is completely spoiled and is allowed on the bed). Next is the part that is not so cute.

From the very first day we brought Oshie home at 7 weeks old he has been fascinated with blankets and towels. After the bath we gave him that first night home our innocent 7 week old puppy tried to hump the towel we dried him off with. It was cute and funny back then. Well he still has the same fetish for towels and blankets and while it can still be somewhat funny it is no longer as cute. So after he is told he can get on the bed he jumps up with his blanket and well, he tries to hump his favorite blankie.

He loves that blanket in more ways than one and it has taken more abuse than a blanket should. Here is a short video from last nights bedtime ritual.

What are we gonna do with this guy?
