Strange Little Dog

As many of you know, we use a crate for Scout. It's a metal wire cage that she goes into when we go out. Scout LOVES her crate. She considers it her little den and often goes in there on her own when she's feeling overwhelmed (too many people in the house, like a party of book club), or when she's feeling persecuted.

Well today she decided to go into her crate as Kevin left for work, and a few hours later I wandered into the kitchen to find her STILL in her crate, lying peacefully with her chin on the bolster of the crate pad. Why did she feel the need to stay in there? The door was wide open. She doesn't appear to be sick or in any distress. Weird dog.

It was probably too hot to move.

She probably just feels really secure in there. It's her own private space.
