    Does your dog sleep on his/her back?

    Casey is the first dog I have ever owned that sleeps on her back. She is almost 13 years old and it still makes me laugh whenever I see her sleeping belly up. Just wondering how many PT doggies sleep on their backs?

    Here is a recent picture. She definitely knows how to get comfortable.

    Sparky does occasionally, tho Myndi never does. She probably thinks it wouldn't be befitting to Her Most Royal Highness!

    My son had a shepherd mix (named Casey) that used to sleep like this all the time. Must be something in that name...

    It's Heyoka's favorite sleeping position, especially when it's -40 and sunny! He loves getting his belly cold!

    Chance likes to nap upside down. When he does, he snores like a freight train.

    Taggart does it quite often


    Tiki doesn't sleep on her back all that much. She prefers to sleep underneath blankets and such... doesn't like getting cold, I guess.

    Love that pic - one eye open and one eye closed. Tired, but doesn't want to miss anything. Too cute....

    While I'm posting this Koko is asleep on the love seat, on her back with
    both legs spread in a very unlady like manner. She also snores when in this position.

    Must be a "thing" with the big dogs. My brother's yellow lab Buffy (aka The Moose) loves to park herself on the sofa upside down too.

    Both my Jagger and Alaska sleep on their backs. I took Alaska a couple of years befor she felt confortable enough to expose herself like that. Jag I think just does it to show off his manlyness:P

    Yep Bella girl does and she can get into some very uncomfortable looking positions (at least they are to me!) Ripley has never slept on his back.

    I love that everyone is posting pics of their doggies belly up. We need a belly up club!

    Ok - I found some shots of Sparky. Upside down and looking scruffy and in need of a trip to the groomer.

    Missy my Australian Shepherd lays on her back & sleeps on the dog couch downstairs (yes my dogs have their own couch) & she will lay on her back on the throw rug & sleep. My old deceased Australian Shepherd Bob Barker slept with his feet in the air. It must be a natural thing for the Australlian Shepherds.

    Neither one of my Collies do, but I use to have a lil' Cairn Terrier that would lay on her back on the pillow next to my head. She'd have her back feet resting on my shoulder and would periodically kick me in the head, as she jockeyed for more space.
