Dog "tucking" me in?

I am curious about a strange "tucking/covering" behavior my dog exhibits...

I have a 3 year old female mini-chihuahua. She loves to sit with me on the sofa and we watch TV together. Two times in the past two years she has tried to cover up my "sometimes-hanging-out-when-it-shouldn't-be" part with the blanket nearby or my boxer shorts. She does it gently with her nose. She gets frustrated at the blanket, bites it, shakes it, then starts over and doesn't stop until it's completely covered or you distract her by laughing so hard. She gets so determined. It's really funny, disturbing, and interesting all at the same time.
Does anyone know why a dog would do this? Some sort of instinct maybe?
