Yes, mine nurses on blankets. We noticed him doing this with our comforter, our throws, basically all our blankets. So, we took an old blanket and cut it into smaller pieces. He has one for every room in the house.

Mary Ann Hooten

My Boston-Jack (yes, I know. Dad got in the pen..) still does this even though she is 8 years old. Taken from Mom at 8 weeks.

Stephanie R Ryan

Yes both my Bostons did this.

Nancee Gayle Gillis

My Mollee does the sucking on her toys. My Dad’s BT also did blankets.

Roe Myers

Mine tucks her nose under a blanket or pillow all the time.Callie is eight years old.

George Morley

My Pudgy nursed the furry side of her doggie bed.

Suzy Q Jordan

My Phoebe did….she was a puppy mill rescue at 16weeks..she would hold her fleecie with her paws and suck on it. So sweet and heart wrenching at the same time.😔

Felicia Gaffney

My momma dog did. She’d put herself to sleep sucking on her first plush toy. She’d suck it’s nose. I did have to replace it once when she wore it out around the face. I never knew if I should do anything about it or not. But seemed harmless. And felt sad if it was b/c she was weaned too early… she was 6wks old when we took her home…

Ryan Roysden

Yep one of my three Bostons does it in a regular basis

Tommy Bowen

Mine sucks his blanket. He’s 3 now and on his second one. He and his two brothers were taken off their mother’s milk at two weeks, because she dried up. Put on goats milk. One of his others brothers prefers Teddy bears!!

Debi Troglin

All of mine did they need it

Sharon Lovelace

Mine nursed on my forearm for the day he died. We had 5 BTs and he was a he only one who nursed on my arm his sister nursed her blankie. Miss Bonnie and Clyde.

Deborah Lundeen

Oh my yes. Mine had a special “monkee” she could find in a toy box buried under other toys. She wanted only that one special monkee. She also had a special blanket.

Shanna Louden

Yes our Henry does. Makes a cute noise too. Then he falls asleep.

Sandy Hyett

Nursing and splooting! So Boston!!

Deborah Corry

Yes mine do. It is not harmful and it’s very comforting for them. I just give them their own blanket or pillow

Noel Stiles

Hi Tim, My Boston Jonty also does this. He brings his blanket into the lounge. He treats his blanket like a pacifier ( dummy in our terms ) Has done this since he was a pup.

Angie Lilly

Yes mine do all the time

Phoenix Emrys

Yes! My little Bugsy is part Boston part pug and he does this all the time

Verna McGlone

My Buster, who is no longer with us, used to do that.

Mine always licks Blankets. I’ve never seen another dog do that.

DeeDee Knierim-Couch

Yes. It is common for younger pups that are weaned from nursing. My baby Max nurses and neaded a bear. He kept it his whole life till he was 12 1/2 . I tried to replace it but he knew and would panic. It was buried with him precious

Faye Parton Flynn

yes beautiful baby

Elaine Skerrett Cammarosano

They all do that. It’s their comfy zone!

No, just a pillow he has always done that

Yes, my boy is 13 and still does it.
