Ask Billy: Why does my dog like to sleep on dirty laundry?

Sammy and Rachel from West Bloomfield, Michigan write: "This is our dog Mulligan, why does he like to sleep on our dirty laundry?"

Well girls, you ask an interesting question. You may be surprised to hear that people ask me that same thing all the time.

To a dog, smell is just as important as sight. Seeing you makes your dog feel safe and loved. If he can't see you, smelling you makes him happy and comfortable too. You leave your scent everywhere you go, especially on the clothes you sleep in or wear all day. So, when Mulligan finds the pile of dirty clothes, he thinks that he's won the scent lottery. Besides, the pile also makes for a comfie pillow.
