Furry Friday: Warm Laundry

So it's been a while since I've written a Furry Friday post on the blog.  That doesn't mean my dog hasn't been absolutely adorable for the last two weeks, it just means I haven't been quick enough with the camera.  At any rate, today's blog post is all about laundry.  More specifically Riley Chance's obsession with warm laundry. 

Since both Jay and I commute about 40 minutes to work, Monday through Friday mornings there is little time to dillydally.  I hate ironing with a passion and save it for special occasions (weddings, funerals, business presentations, first day on the job, etc).  So Jay and I have taken to implementing the "dryer trick" on weekday mornings.  For those of you who have yet to benefit from said trick, it's simple.  Get up, pick out your clothes, throw clothes in dryer, add a wet wash cloth or sponge, turn on dryer for 20-30 minutes while you are in the shower.  Voila!  No wrinkles.  There are contraptions that are supposed to do this (example: Mister Steamy) but we've found that they produce more noise than results.  Of course you could purchase a fancy dryer with a steam function for upwards of $1000, however, the "dryer trick" can save you some serious cash if you're not in the market for a new dryer.

Getting back to Riley and his obsession, this is how I found him the other day when Jay had laid our freshly steamed clothes out on the bed before work... I guess he was keeping them warm for me?

Likewise the other night we dumped a basket of freshly dried clothes on the couch to start folding and this little guy weaseled his way into the pile.  That's the dachshund in him... he's a total nester.

Have your pets discovered the joys of warm laundry?  Have any photos or cute stories to share.  Comment below.
