For many dog owners, pets are children. So when Taylor Eubanks heard her puppy barking in the middle of the night, she immediately tried to find out what the problem was.

Taylor was sleeping soundly in her bedroom upstairs when the commotion started.

Her puppy, Nova, who was supposed to be sleeping in her kennel, started barking, whining, and growling. Curious as to why, Taylor checked the security camera footage to see what was going on.

Puppy rescue

That’s when she started to panic. Nova was circling around something on the ground, lunging towards it and backing away repeatedly, as if she was under attack. Taylor’s first thought? A snake had made its way into the kennel and was going to hurt her baby.

So Taylor dashed out of her room, running down the stairs to reach her puppy in time. And when she turned on the lights, her panic turned to shock.

A monster under the bed

Her puppy had been terrified of…a lifeless piece of wool she had bitten off her blanket. Scary indeed. Taylor couldn’t help but laugh at what had just transpired. Relieved, she threw the piece of wool away, and both her and Nova went back to sleep with their minds at ease.

Honestly, maybe we’d sleep better without dogs…but we’d laugh a lot less!

Ever wondered if your dog should sleep in bed with you?
