To those of you with other breeds of dog, I want to know if it is
a Doodle trait to sleep this way? Legs ups everything exposed caution to the wind.LOL My border collie of years ago did not sleep like this so I am just curious.
My old Springer Spaniel (16 and a half) has always slept with her legs in the air and now the baby Mia (mini doodle) is doing the same thing although it took her about 3 weeks at our house to get comfortable enough to expose her belly even for a pet.
BLUETEAL...i used to have a Bengal cat and one pappilon that both slept with all four legs up in the air. hahahaha it looked like they had rigor-mortis!!! hahahahhaha first time it scared me till I realized they were sleeping!
In our house this position has a name -- "Belly to the breeze" -- because as I said in an earlier post we've seen it for 16 years with out old dog. In fact she used to do this even when awake and particularly if she met another dog while out for a walk.
She has always been a very submissive dog and would adopt this position to send the message "I am no threat to you!" Sometimes she would flop on the ground and roll over if she spotted another dog at the end of the block ... just to be sure. :roll:
