My Benny, about 1 year old, possibly a miniature doxen/feist mix likes to take a wad of his blanket and suck on it. It seems to be very soothing to him, when he is grumpy or tired. I am afraid that this is not good for his teeth, like a kid sucking their thumb? I tried just taking the blanket away, the next thing I knew, he had brought my queen size comforter into the living room, and was sucking on it! It seems any blanket type thing will do. Any thoughts on how to stop this, or if it is harmful?
