I bet you’re yawning just looking at those first 2 pictures.
No, not yet?
See if these pictures of dogs sleeping don’t make you yawn…
Enjoy the following pictures of dogs in all their glory – fast asleep and minding their own business!
Doggie Couch Potato
Ahhh…. there’s nothing better than being all tucked in on the plush leather sofa!
Caught In The Act… of Snoring!
This how our dog, Destin, sleeps. As you can see (on the left), he’s all stretched out, and belly up. On the right, I had just woken him up trying to snap another picture of his odd sleeping position.
Can’t We All Just Get Along?…
Sometimes, it seems like the only time dogs & cats can get along in a family is when they’re sleeping. At least, that’s how it was for our dog, Kayak, (American Eskimo on the left), sleeping next to our cat, Ripley. It looks to be true over at Randy’s house, too… on the right you see Molly the Jack Russell Terrier, snoozing next to their cat, Boo. A classic case of dog- and cat-napping…
Dogs Pick The Strangest Places To Sleep
On the left, Destin, chose the hard rocks over the soft spot we prepared for him under the tree next to the picnic table. On the right, a guitar case makes perfect sense for a dog bed, right?
These two have certainly done their share of bickering (and other forms of sibling rivalry), but when it comes right down to it, they hate to be separated. They sleep together quite often.
A Right-Sided Sleeper
I’d say it’s obvious what Kona’s favorite sleeping position is… whether she’s in the kennel or out!
Caught With A Paw In The Food Bowl Again
When Tenor was a pup, this is how he typically slept… right near his food bowl. Often, with a foot in the food bowl! I guess he felt he had to protect his stash. Or maybe that was the only place he felt was “his space”. It wasn’t long though until he started hanging out in his kennel instead.
Adorable Sleepy Pups
Ellie’s pups are just too, too cute. Here, they’re about 3 weeks of age, and sound asleep all huddled together.
Best Seat In The House
You know a dog feels loved when they can fall asleep right in your arms. Beth’s dog, Kona, appears to be a belly-up sleeper too.
Tenor Has A Strong Bond With Office Chairs
Don’t ask me why, but dogs often seem to pick the most unlikely of places for a little cat-nap. For some reason, our dog Tenor has always had a fondness for sleeping near our feet — usually using the chair’s hard plastic base as a pillow. …Whatever!
More Dogs Afoot
There’s no escaping the dogs during the day. They follow us around like a shadow. And they’re usually found napping underneath our desks — right at our feet. But, you’ve gotta love the fact that they get along so well… usually! On the left: some doggie spooning. On the right: both dogs sleeping underneath my desk.
Dogs Can Fall Asleep Anywhere!
In a dog’s mind: “Fall asleep whenever and wherever the dog-eared sleepy-eyed gods call ya!” seems to be the norm — at least around our house. On the left: Destin appears to have fallen asleep while keeping a close eye on his little brother, Tenor. On the right: Tenor was caught using his favorite toy as a pillow (…or a prop).
Your Bed, Or Mine?
Destin prefers his bed. Tenor prefers ours.
I like to help Dog Parents find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Dog Tips and Dog Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I’m a lifelong dog owner — currently have 2 mixed breed Golden Aussies that we found abandoned on the side of the road as puppies. I've always trained my own dogs and help friends train theirs, as well. Professionally, I worked at a vet and have several friends who are veterinarians — whom I consult with regularly. (And just because I love animals so much, I also worked at a Zoo for awhile!) I've been sharing my best ideas with others by blogging full-time since 1998 (the same year that Google started… and before the days of Facebook and YouTube). My daily motivation is to help first-time dog owners be better prepared from the first day your new puppy enters your home. I like to help dog owners understand what's 'normal' and what you can expect in terms of living with and training your dog — how to get through the ups & downs of potty training, chewing, teaching commands, getting your dog to listen, and everything else that takes place during that hectic first year! When I'm not training, walking, grooming, or making homemade treats for my dogs, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites). To date, I've written over 500 articles for dog owners on this site!
