I can’t tell you how many times the BarkPost crew has gone on an all-hands search for Office Wiener Andi (aka the infamous sandwich thief), who would do anything for food but somehow can’t be bothered to announce herself when she hears us frantically calling her name.


Turns out she’s just doing what Doxies do and burrowing under several dog beds, blankets, other dogs — anything that reminds her of a small tunnel. Here are 13 products dogs who have a need to burrow would ruv.
