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!!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.
