Is this just a greyhound thing?

I love watching our dogs sleep. Maybe it is like watching babies sleep, but I don't think I just watched my daughters sleep.

More times than not, I will see the greys tuck their noses under their front paws. I have to wonder, do other breeds with longer noses do this too?

I love watching them sleep, too! My first golden, Beau, always slept with his nose under his paw when the house was cold in the winter. Zachary does as well, but prefers to just snuggle up with a warm human. I don't think I've ever seen Henry do it, but he has a really thick coat.

Oh I do love watching my dogs sleep. They are greyhounds too, and there is always an amusing sleeping position to come.

I love watching ours sleep, too! Morgan sleeps with her nose under her paw, so I'm guessing it's a long snooter thing!

Nope! All of my dogs have done it, and none are greyhounds!

Our ghs have done/do that. With Apollo he seems to fall into a much deeper sleep during his naps, so often I watch just to make sure he's still breathing!!

Hi Y'all,

I once in awhile put my paw over my face. More often I put my head on my front leg, err you humans call them arms.

Y'all come by now,
