At least for 23-month-old Finn Knudston and his trusty boxer Brutus, that is.

One night, Finn’s mom Paige found them curled up on Brutus’ floor mat next to Finn’s bed and was curious enough to know how it happened that she checked the monitor footage—much to our delight.

The camera caught Finn grabbing his blanket and climbing out of bed, then struggling to find a comfy position for nearly 5 minutes before resting easy with his best buddy for the remainder of the night.
