Hidebernate adv. Descriptive term for Shetland Sheepdogs (“Shelties”) when they like to find a dark, quiet, out- of-the-way place to snooze. We had one who used to like to sleep underneath a cedar chest. Now we have one who likes to sleep in the master bedroom closet, underneath the hanging shirts.
Usage: “I can’t find Prince. He must be hidebernating somewhere.”
