It all started when Washington Post’s food editor, Mary Beth Albright, shared a photo of her dog Zelda, who had chewed on his favourite blanket and made a big hole.
But Zelda’s head popped out of the blanket, showing that she’d managed to turn it into a poncho for herself.

Many rushed to defend the cute dog saying that he looked innocent, while others said great sacrifices had to be made for making an eccentric fashion statement.

He clearly saw the mysterious hole and then investigated it for you and got stuck he’s only guilty of caring and being a bad dogtective

This pup thought you were in danger, managed to break through the blanket barrier, and this is the thanks you give??

Fashion requires sacrifice, Mary Beth – everybody knows that

But as Albright’s tweet went viral, many other pet-parents pointed out how it was something a lot of dogs do. As a result, Twitter was flooded with plenty of photos of dogs putting their heads out of holes they’d made in blankets. Some said it reminded them of Victorian fashion for royalty!

Our Barney Bear in his 15th year. I left my knitting project unattended and he decided to turn it in to a kind of ‘snood’. Think he fancied his chances as a #dog #fashiondesigner! 😂 x pic.twitter.com/dYuxwya0C7

Poppy does this regularly – but the blanket has been full of holes almost since she first got hold of it. 😁 pic.twitter.com/C2GukLQNI7

Reminds me of the time my chihuahua was using my sweater for warmth and tried to get out through the sleeve when I called him.
After a couple of minutes of him not responding to my calls, I went to find him and stumbled upon this. pic.twitter.com/ENHDErvkGd

The viral Twitter thread has plenty of people saying they just can’t get enough of all the pictures.
I’ve just realised why today is called Good Friday – it’s because of this thread of dogs stuck in blankets. https://t.co/6EXfGjaVjz
