Bailey loves to burrow and hide in blankets but I worry she can't breathe. I know it sounds dumb but do I really need to worry?

No. No need to worry. It's a chi thing. They love to burrow. I think it's so cute that they do it. I believe my chi spends 90% of her life under the blanket. Hehe

Don't worry. They'll come out from under the covers long before they suffocate. Both mine are burrowers, it's why I have little snuggle blankets in every one of their beds....and they have LOTS of beds lol! And a couple more throws (they're mine, but I'm willing to share) on the couch which they also burrow in.

More than being worried about them suffocating, I'm far MORE worried that I'm going to sit on them by accident one day when they're burrowed under one of my couch throws!

Mine burrows under the sheets/blankets in my bed, I always have to feel around for her before I get up or get into bed. I'm so afraid I'm going to squish her one of these days.

Mine love to burrow, too. Every night Tico has wrapped himself in a blanket. Each bed has a blanket and I have two throws on the couch. And at night most like to burrow under the blankets in my bed.

Gracie is a burrow-er, too. She has a snuggle sack and countless baby blankets all over the place. (Pedro is half Chi, and couldn't care less!)

Every night when we go to bed, she comes up on the pillows between our heads and waits for us to raise the covers so she can go under. Her favorite spot is midway down, sandwiched in between us, but by morning she's at our feet.

Fenrir loves to burrow. The other night he was in his crate and he started whining, so I opened the door, figuring I'd need to take him out to go to the bathroom, but he didn't come out. I got down on the floor to look and he was just a lump under his blankets, whining because he couldn't find his way out. Too cute. lol.

LMAO, I feel the same way. Chip, as big as he is for a chi, makes himself into this tiny little balls and goes under pillows (even more than he goes under blankets) and I've half sat down only to jump up and scold him for scaring the crap out of me :p

I remember reading someone that a short hair will go under the blankets, and long hair would like to cuddle with you on top....after reading all these I'm thinking that's kinda a dead theory ; p

Ours are burrowers too. I used to worry, but we're used to it now. There is usually at least one furbaby tangled around my legs in bed, under the covers when I wake up in the morning :)
