That is a first for me.

mine sleeps like that sometimes

my dog sleeps like that frequently, once he fell off my bed, onto his bed while he was sleeping. He landed on his back like that and just went back to sleep without moving.

Yeah, my Golden sleeps just like that a lot of the time.

If there was a poll, I'd vote weird.

I've seen dogs sort of like that when they're running in their sleep, but not like that all the time.

Yup. My dog can fall asleep like that while laying on top of a snow bank on a sunny day.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:09:42 PM EDT
Mine does that all of the time.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:10:30 PM EDT
I had two dogs that slept like that a lot of the time.

Once, one of our neighbors came in and saw them sleeping like that. Her little daughter asked if they were dead. The only time their dog did that was when he was playing dead.

When they are in that position it is a sign of total trust and comfort. That pic tells me that your dog gets alot of love and attention and she knows she has nothing to fear in her home.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:11:36 PM EDT
Yes, my dog sleep like that all the time. i think it's cool
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:12:51 PM EDT
Yes, frequently.

Take it as a sign of trust and lack of fear of you.


Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:13:35 PM EDT
not weird at all.

Its a retriever thing

Does she snore ?

I have a German Shorthair. It sleeps like that all the time and in the same place...on the couch.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:19:38 PM EDT
my yellow lab does that, and he snores
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:20:09 PM EDT
They think they are people.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:20:24 PM EDT
My rotty sleeps like that ALOT but I think its because sh is too fat to roll over easily. Its pretty funny to watch them sleep like that.

That looks like you came into my house and took a pic of my dog.
My dog sleeps exactly like that sometimes...
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:23:47 PM EDT
Nope
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:28:13 PM EDT
Pretty normal for mine to sleep like that. All hell breaks loose when one of the cats jumps into the middle of her though!
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:29:30 PM EDT
Some of my sled dogs used to sleep like that, most wouldn't leave their
vitals open in that way though.

I think that the animal has to feel pretty damn secure in it's situation to
leave it's self that vulnerable to attack.

Translation: He/she trusts you and your hooch to keep it safe.

Nothing wrong with that tc6969

Yeap, catch him like that all the time. I think it feels good on his back and hips, just a guess.

Here is my dog at 5 mos. We had a heat wave, so she decided that the best place to sleep was in the middle of the kitchen table, underneath the ceiling fan in a nest of my junk mail (BP excluded).

Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:33:00 PM EDT
one of my dogs sleeps like that, except that he sticks one front leg/paw straight up in the air
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:39:11 PM EDT
thought it was a summer thing with my GSD then well he started doing it in this cold snap we're having

Now I found the Jack Russell doing it as well

Recon they must like it around here :)
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:41:57 PM EDT
Dude, that is one relaxed dog. I should take lessons.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:46:09 PM EDT
My Lab sleeps like that almost always, I thought it was wierd, guess not. He has been doing it since he was a puppy.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 6:49:44 PM EDT
both my dogs sleep like that. one usually leans up against the wall like that and the other does it every once in awhile. When you lean down to pet her she just flips over on her belly and lays there. It was kinda wierd the first couple days we had her.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:31:31 PM EDT
my 165 pound monster sleeps like that all the time
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:37:55 PM EDT
I sleep like that...
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:39:24 PM EDT
My wife's schnauzer does that all the time. Used to have an Ausie shepard that would too.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:41:05 PM EDT
Haha. Never seen that one.

That's what i think also then again, wtf do I know.
I don't even own a dog.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:42:31 PM EDT
Our Chihuahua does that, but only when the rest of us are still up. When we go to bed he curls up under the covers between us.

My dog is sleeping JUST like that beside me as I type! I thought he was the only weird one!
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:56:10 PM EDT
Hell, if I was a dog I would sleep like that.

And piss on your floor too.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 7:58:30 PM EDT
170lbs of couch potato rotty doing it all the time!
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 8:01:02 PM EDT
Yup, all the time, but he also sleeps in his twister position when he is guarding the door,



Link Posted: 2/14/2006 8:01:49 PM EDT
What is awesome is when they have a dream and the legs start moving.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 8:03:06 PM EDT
Dogs are so funny.

We had cats that slept like that, back when we were kids....

Link Posted: 2/14/2006 8:07:35 PM EDT
I have a big Rottie and she sleeps like that all the time more-so in warmer weather.
Link Posted: 2/14/2006 8:16:59 PM EDT
Mine always sleeps this way;

My cat sleeps like that.
