Dogs are known as man’s best friend for a reason. They love us without question and they’re loyal to the end. We can’t forget the hours of amusement they provide either, from their silly antics to those strange sleeping positions. Honestly, how do they pull some of those angles off? More importantly, do they have spines – or bones, for that matter?
A dog will eventually find some odd angle to sleep in that leaves you so baffled all you can do is stand there and stare. The next clear thought that pierces your befuddled mind is that you have to take a picture of this! Unfortunately, right before you capture the moment, your dog wakes up and stares at you like you’re the one who’s insane. From time to time, though, people manage to snap the picture before the pooch awakens.
There are 17 dogs who finagled themselves into the most bizarre sleeping positions.. How they twist and contort their bodies into those odd angles, we’ll probably never know. Some of these canines even find a way to defy the laws of physics, much to our eternal amusement.
This Bulldog is so adorable no one really cares that it seems like he’s staring at you – upside down. Maybe it’s the way his paws curl in the air or that he’s sprawled out on his back without a care.
Those wrinkles certainly make him look like something you want to scoop up and hug for life. Then there’s the tongue dangling there for all to see. Could be he’s taste testing the air for any hint of a beefy treat while he’s catching some Z’s.
Bull Terriers are one of the cutest dogs around, but this one raises the bar a little higher. No, that’s his behind.
He looks like he conked out mid-run and slid into doggy dreamland. Judging by that smile, he’s gnawing on the biggest dream bone he’s ever seen.
Now this is one creative pooch. Not sure how he pulled this off, but you can clearly see his bed pot is a perfect fit and that pillow pot supports his head at just the right angle.
Maybe he wanted to get in touch with his roots while he enjoyed a little siesta.
You know about the Headless Horseman, but have you heard of his trusty companion, the Headless Dog?
We’ve all seen dogs sleep on their back with their paws in the air, but shoving his head into the couch? You have to admit, he looks perfectly content – we think.
This determined puppy proves canines can multi-task with the best of them. Just look at him. He’s chowing down on some tasty bits while indulging in some shuteye.
You know you want to curl up right next to him and cuddle for hours!
We all know dogs are territorial, but this adorable pup takes the kibble – and sleeps on it.
Maybe he really enjoys his midnight snacks. No, he’s just greedy, too cute for words, but greedy.
Let’s face it. There are no words to describe how absolutely precious these two are without ruining the moment.
A few suggestions come to mind, though, such as grab a blanket, curl up with them and share the love.
Someone forgot to tell this dog that, just because he can, doesn’t mean he should. Admittedly, though, that he squeezed his entire body, tail and all, into that pot is awe-inspiring.
You just know he’s going to have a serious kink in his neck when he wakes. That is once he figures out how to get out of his little bed.
The first thought that comes to mind with this pooch is – ow! That angle is cringe worthy and then some.
Maybe the real shocker here is the fact he looks perfectly comfortable, content and spineless.
We can see what’s going on here. Ms. Kitty used all her charm and wit to convince the naïve puppy they’re best friends forever.
Didn’t you know? Friends always offer themselves up as a bed for the ones they love.
This cute little dog definitely believes in defying gravity. He seems to rebel against everyone’s idea of comfort, too.
Most of us can lounge on the arm of a chair, but drape ourselves over it? We won’t talk about everything that’s wrong with using an end table for a headrest.
There is nothing cuter than best friends snuggling together – unless one friend is choking the other. Seriously, how can the one dog breathe with the other one chilling on his neck?
Well, however they are pulling off this uncomfortable position, they certainly seem content to lounge together.
Most people can’t sleep face down, but that doesn’t stop this dog. It’s like he fell asleep sitting up, toppled over face first and snoozed on undisturbed. If only we could do that.
I want to roll him on his side, put a little pillow under his head and cover him with a blanket.
They were so exhausted from playing that they flopped over where they stood and started sawing a few logs. The one dog just happened to think the other pooch made the perfect pillow.
That or these dogs take playing dead to a whole new level.
One of these dogs is not like the other. These furry companions don’t seem to mind one bit, though. Then again, what’s a little cat nap among friends?
Maybe there’s room for us to squeeze in there.
Don’t ask how he managed that position. Not even he knows, although he is pulling off some professional level contortionist moves for this nap.
Seriously, he must think he’s so big he has to contort his body and twist his head around to fit on that tiny couch.
This dog is of the mindset that there’s no reason to sleep on a bed when there’s a perfectly good floor. Just why he chose to nestle himself between the wall and bed, only he knows.
If only we could find such peaceful sleep no matter where we bed down or the position we twist and contort ourselves into – life would be perfect.
