Dog Can’t Ever Go To Bed Without Bringing Something To Make Him Feel Safe

When Bentley first arrived at his new home, he had two prized possessions: a stuffed dog and a tan blanket.

These two items carried the scent of his mom and siblings — but even after the smell wore off, they remained precious to the puppy.

When it came time to relax and go to bed, Bentley would grab one of these two items and drift off happily.

Now, at almost 2 years old, Bentley’s obsession with his blanket has evolved into an adorable nightly ritual.

Before heading upstairs to his parents’ bedroom for lights out, the dog will grab something extra to snuggle.

“I find it adorable and quirky that he brings things with him so we don’t mind,” Kelly Madsen, Bentley’s mom, told The Dodo. “In fact, we expect it.”

While it’s not necessarily comfortable for his parents to have the extra items in bed, at least the good boy cleans up after himself. “He also usually carries the item back down the stairs in the morning,” Madsen noted.

Bentley’s blanket and stuffed dog have not become shredded with age, so the pup has started looking farther afield for bed companions. He now brings whatever item he is most enamored with at the moment.

Why Bentley needs the extra company when he’s doing his business remains a mystery.

“Our only attempt at a guess is separation anxiety because he loves being near me or my husband so it might give him comfort,” Madsen said.

  1. Oh what a love, he is so cute. I to have a “Bentley” I know the name is a male name but I liked it so much and wanted a female I had to name my Golden Doodle little Bentley. I just tell everyone it’s a family name…it was my grandmother’s maiden name. My Bentley too has to have her blanket and a toy with her when she goes to bed at night. She’s still in the crate at night she’ll be 10 weeks this Monday 4/29, we are still in the potty training stage. Your Bentley also looks like a Golden Doodle.
