Sometimes Jasmine does stuff that makes me shake my head in wonder. What I call “nose burrowing” is one of them.
We’ve been letting Jasmine come up on the bed at night to snuggle with us before going to sleep. I then pick her up and put her into her own bed when it comes to turning off the lights. During that period, she tends to fall asleep (after some serious pets and scratchies, of course). HOW she falls asleep is what has us so amazed.
Jasmine likes to burrow her nose into us before going to sleep. Last night, she decided my arm pit was the perfect place. Several times before, she put her nose into the palm of hubby’s hand. He held her muzzle as she slept. Of course, we get a cold, wet nose and doggie breath. She gets…um…why does she do this?
The armpit thing had me laughing. First, I get the nose tucked in there and then the warm, moist breath that followed. Finally, I was serenaded by the snoring that ensued.
When she’s in her bed, she doesn’t burrow her nose. It’s just when she’s with us. Maybe she likes our scents. Maybe it makes her feel safe. Maybe she likes the warm air. Maybe she’s just strange. Regardless, her little quirks make us smile and make us love her even more.
