    My dog does the same thing.  Its a mistery I think.

    Hah, when dogs settle down to sleep they often walk in circles or dig on their bedding to make it more comfy.

    You are the pillow in this case.

    Or he could just want you to get up. 

    But I'm thinking he's tenderizing your lap for him to sleep on.

    They are bored!  If you take them for a walk, or dog something to tire them out.  They will not dig.

    I agree with Tirzah.  When your dog begins to dig they are typically trying to build a "nest" to sleep in.  When he/she sees you settle down your dog wants to sleep there with you.  I guess you are not quite the shape that your dog wants so he/she is trying to make you more comfy!  Ha ha!

    Sometimes I swear my dog digs on me because she wants me to move out of the prime spot in bed. smile
