About a Dog and His Nap

I am a dog that can’t nap in one position.

On the floor, there's the "one leg out" position

On the floor, there’s the “one leg out” position

I like to rest my head on the couch arm

I like to rest my head on the couch arm

And on the bed, I like to lay on my back

And on the bed, I like to lay on my back

Sometimes, with my head off the side

Sometimes, with my head off the side

I am so excited because today I am the one being interviewed! Hop on over to Clowie’s Corner and check it out!

About Jen and the Furries

Hello and welcome. I’m a 50 something woman who’s probably awake when she should be sleeping. Oh, and there are animals, because who doesn’t have pets?

  1. I like to sleep like that on my back too!

    My sister Violette sends neighs, and says thanks for the nice comment on her interview over at Savy’s.

  9. One needs more than one place and more than one position to nap. Keeps life fresh.

  15. Love to see dogs stretched out on their backs, for me it’s an invitation to rub a belly. 🙂

  20. I love the sound of my dog as he breathes comfortably while sleeping. It has to be the most soothing sound in the world!

  28. Loved the photos. Shared them with my two-legged children. In fact, today we saw a dog that looked like you, and my daughter said it looks like the Rumpy dog! Will go and check out your interview next. xo

  31. We all have different napping positions too. For all but Phantom, our favorite is definitely belly up:) Phantom almost never does that.

    Happy napping any ole way.

    Woos – Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  41. Those are all great napping positions Rumpy! And I would love to rub that fluffy belly of yours!! 🙂

  42. I change posiions very often when I sleep. Mom says I have ADD. The only position I don’t use is the one on my back. Even after 12 1/2 years with Mom, memories don’t fade. I must have been hurt in my first home and before I was abandoned and don’t feel safe on my back.
