Love funny dog videos? This pup jumped in the dryer to get at that nice, warm sleeping spot

Some dogs just can't get enough of the laundry. Here's why.

We all know the perfect feeling of putting on clothes straight out of the dryer especially on a cold winter day. This little pup decided that wasn’t good enough and took matters into his own paws. Instead of waiting for his blanket to be laid out for him, he climbed right into the dryer itself — maximum warmth!

This funny dog video posted by mandypierce32 opens with a pooch walking around and looking for his friend. The text tells us “When you forget to lay a blanket out for the old man so he finds his own” and then proves its point. We watch as the camera shows a long tail sticking out of the dryer and then quite a large canine who has somehow managed to stuff himself into it. When his owner finally finds him, he readjusts his position and gets fully comfy in his new sleeping spot.

Commenters praised the big guy with Beffers6 saying, “Ahhh! I love the wisdom in old dogs. That old fella is a PROBLEM SOLVER!” He certainly knows what he wants and takes it.

kristigraggstilwell tried to get into his head: “He’s just, ‘COULD SOMEBODY GET THE LIGHT?’ LOL!!!”

Krystal made an excellent point when she posted “I thought it was gonna be a cat at first. Was not expecting an entire dog.” A feline would certainly fit in there a bit better.

Finally, Ray summed it up perfectly, “That’s gotta be so cozy and warm I don’t blame him.” Who wouldn’t want to climb into the warm dryer for a snooze?

Why do pets like the dryer?

You might notice that your animal likes clothes both before they go into the wash and after. If your dog snuggles into your hamper, it means he’s enjoying your smell, which you leave behind on all your clothes. However, when pets lay in the laundry pile after it comes out of the dryer, they’re doing it mostly for warmth. Unfortunately, the call of the dryer can lead to devastating consequences. Some cats have been known to climb in and go through a full cycle. Luckily, these fur babies do survive sometimes, but it’s essential that you check your machines every time if you know your little guy is prone to exploring your washer or dryer. Being trapped in there can lead to heat stroke. If you do find one of your precious animals in the laundry machines, take them to the vet immediately.

While in extreme circumstances, the dryer can be dangerous, that didn’t stop this big animal from climbing in and enjoying a quick nap on his favorite blanket. Too bad it wasn’t big enough for his friend to join in too!

Most of us hear dogs barking frequently, some even every day or multiple times. You might look forward to the sound of your pooch greeting you with a happy bark at the door or dread an angry snarl from the neighbor's poorly behaved beastie, but there's a lot more to barking than meets the ear.

This complex form of communication actually can have many different meanings both on its own and coupled with other indicators, like body language. While your dog barking at nothing might annoy you when it happens at 3 a.m., you'll be far better prepared to handle it if you understand what's behind the noise.
