The big Chihuahua cover up – why do they always snuggle under the covers?

Did you know that Chihuahua dogs have tons of personality. One of their most endearing habits is to snuggle under blankets or clothes. We really don’t know why they do this but there are several theories. One is that it’s a natural instinct. One that is encoded in their genes. Their wild ancestors probably slept and raised their young in burrows. It’s also possible that snuggling under blankets makes these excitable little dogs feel safe and secure. Maybe it’s just warm and cozy for them. Chihuahua’s, especially the smooth coated variety don’t have much hair and get cold easily. Whatever the reason, Chihuahua owner have to be very careful not to sit on a dog hidden beneath a throw or comforter.
