Is my dog neurotic?

I have a three year old boston terrier lab mix that is very sweet and attentive however, she has a wierd habit. She has a ninny blanket. She will lie down with a blanket (or pillow or whatever, but usually her red blanket) and arrange the layers until she has made a pacifier out of it. She will appear to be almost in a trance while she "nurses" on this blanket and uses her paws to push on iether side as if she were nursing. Is this a sign of a neurological problem?

I dont know if its a neurolocial problem but I have to say my boy does this often. He is trance like and will eventually fall asleep! Its so funny because he is 9yrs old!! :D

Maybe you could show us pics so we can see for ourselves!
