Dreaming Dogs

Right now my dog is sound asleep in her crate (which is across the room from the computer.) Just a second ago she was whimpering, so I looked over at her to make sure she was ok, and she was still sound asleep. She was crying in her sleep! Then she started growling and the fur on the back of her neck stood straight up! Then she stopped making noises and it went back down. Now her legs keep twitching. It looks like she's having some pretty intense dreams! Normally when she sleeps her legs will twitch and stuff, but she doesn't often make noises in her sleep. And I've never ever seen a dog's fur stand up while they were asleep! What's the most bizarre thing you've ever seen your dogs do in their sleep?

My dog usually barks, whimpers, and wags her tail in her sleep. Sometimes she'll even act like she's running, moving her little legs like she's chasing something. I guess the strangest thing that she's ever done is that she barked so loud that she woke herself up. It was pretty funny. She looked so confused.

Hi trickiwoo, It's fun watching them sleep sometimes isn't it ? Maybe she was having a dream that some big dog was after her, poor thing . My German Shepherds do alot of dancing in their sleep , shaking their paws like they are running . Sometimes their eyes dart back and forth or go up in their head. Sometimes they make a wimper noise . We get a kick out of watching them and wonder what they are dreaming about .

I never really paid much attention to the dogs that I have taken care of when they are sleeping. That was like so long ago. Most of the time, they'd be whimpering, twitching or growling. I just leave them be. As humans, we dream some pretty vivid dreams. I am sure dogs do too.
