pouncey sucks pillows

pouncey sucks.

he sucks on his bed. he gets a corner in his mouth and sucks on it. sometimes he falls asleep with his bed in his mouth.

we always say ‘pouncey, stop sucking on grammie’s bed’ (the bed was a christmas present from grammie), but the sucking doesn’t stop.

he isn’t chewing or shredding it, he is just sucking on it. for long periods of time.

i just googled “dog sucks on pillow’ and the conventional wisdom seems to be that dogs who are taken from their mothers too soon may suck on pillows. like sucking thumbs. a security thing.

pouncey was taken from his mother at 5-6 weeks since she was too old to make enough milk for all the puppies.

and now he sucks on his bed instead.
