Default Do your dogs talk in their sleep?

Sawyer is fast asleep right now and I kept hearing a wierd noise so I turned around and he's lying there doing dream barks and woofs, twiching his paws and generally looking like he's dreaming about chasing his buddies in daycare.

It's kind of bizarre when he does this at 3 in the morning though.

Every night, at least once, and then you times it by two dogs! It always sounds to us like they're having nightmares (even though they're probably not) and we always say in a quite soft, beckoning, high-pitched voice...`Puppies! Puppies!' and they settle back down. I think it is very sweet...

We give dogs time we can spare, space we can spare, and love we can spare. In return they give us their all. It is the best deal man has ever made

Joey does that too! He hardly every barks, but it's not uncommon for him to start woofing in his sleep. Of course that's in between the snore sessions. lol!

Bear does it too. He woofs and growls in his sleep with his paws twitching.

One night it was almost midnight and he was sound asleep on the living room floor and we heard him start growling. Then he barked and he looked like he was running. His paws weren't just twitching he was running! He was still sounds asleep. After about a minute he clamed down. Scared the crap out of us though.

Thanks for the siggie Baxter'smybaby!

MR. Sheaffer (note Mom's new spelling, she feels it is classier) howled a long mournful howl in his sleep not to long ago.

Windy woo's in her sleep and also looks like she's running. The other day she snarled a little! I woke her up, it must have been a nightmare!

Ripley does on occasion - tiny little growls and whines.

Dakota snarls in his sleep. It's disturbing since he's been sleeping with his head on my pillow. The first night he did it, I turned on the light and he didn't wake up. All I saw were bared teeth and his eyes open, but rolling back into his head. I was afraid to touch him at first, I thought he was having a seizure. I finally touched him and he woke up, the lips covered the teeth again and he just gave me this weird, sleepy look.

I've gotten used to it, but my friends find it freaky.
