Using Your Head While Asleep

During a break from busyness, Hu-Dad glanced around in the study and noticed a pattern of how each dog was using his head while asleep.

Body on the blanket; head on the rug.

A soft snoring rattled through the study as the Hu-Dad worked away (earning us kibble). He stopped, stretched, and looked around the room. Somehow, the three boys were all using a somewhat similar sleeping pattern, each with his own unique stamp on the pose.

Typhoon  may be sleeping on the hard floor (under the desk), but at least he is using a corner of Frankie's blanket for a pillow.

In today’s case, the award for creativity goes to Landon. He had snagged the best bed with its thick coils of comfort, but stretching out caused a slight problem.

I think we need a bigger bed.

    Mom sez: Looks much the same way Ebby sleeps. Body on her mat in the living room, but head on the floor. Must be comfortable, or they wouldn’t do it.

    I haven’t seen Typhoon looking so calm. 😉

    You boys are just adorable in your nap position!

    Each dog is sleeping but the poses are so different plus the surface they decide to do their napping on!!! I give my vote to Landon as well for the comfy bed although the stretching became an issue-lol!!
