    Occasionally the younger ones do. Sara at nearly 15 doesn’t but I don’t think ever did much

    Now the cats, on the other hand. Just watching them sleep in such positions made my back hurt. That couldn’t be comfortable

    Sometimes Lois my dachshund will look like she’s sleeping with her eyes open with her “3rd” eyelids half down

    And during these episodes she usually acts strange , will be vocal and squirm a little


    Doesn’t happen a lot, don’t think it’s a seizure

    This isn’t her but what it looks like

    Mine sometimes sleeps on his back like that, big ole belly up, legs akimbo. I think they like the belly cool sometimes.

    We have a Mini Schnauzer that can sleep in the goofiest positions belly up, twisted, curled up, halfway off of the bed, etc.

    Lucy, our little West Highland Terrier used to sleep like that. And along with the little twitches, mini growls and Almost silent barks we just thought she must be dreaming - probably of chasing rabbits.

    Hah I wonder if everyone says that

    Whenever one of our dogs is sleeping and their legs start to move with little barks we always say “she/he is chasing rabbits”

    Harlo is a Karilion Bear dog . this breed has strong instinctive ties to wolves , smart cunning and resourcefull, 2 days ago I got up early in the morning and harlo had taken my jeans and was sleeping on them in the hall way from the bedroom a real WTF moment , and I started to laugh , retrieving my jeans etc ., the next day I find my jeans ( yes the same pair)
    in my kids room on the floor in his bed , WTF again , the sad part is he knows hes funny and likes to play jokes with us . Or maybe he's trying to tell me something!

    If he continues to sleep in this position, I’m going to have to buy some pants for him.

    Any yep - that's a painting of Pepper (RIP 2019) in the background... same as my avatar.

    Our Lucy lab makes the same noises in her sleep moaning barking yelping snoring but with her I'm assuming she's chasing hamburgers, Chicken, & vanilla wafers!

    Half and half. My girlfriend's Malamute mix and our pit/Aussie mix sleep in all kinds of pretzel positions. I also recently got a few seconds' video of Charli, the pit, snoring like crazy; she is a professional sleeper. About 9:00 PM her eyelids start to droop and she starts making forays toward the bedroom, trying to get someone to retire with her. :rolleyes:

    My Lab and my border collie usually both sleep more conventionally--curled up or flat on their sides. The collie likes to sleep with her head pillowed on one of the other dogs sometimes, it's really cute.

    What I want to know is how come cats don’t do these activities while sleeping? I’ve never seen a cat “chase rabbits” when sleeping, while God knows cats do enough wacky stuff while they’re awake.
