Dog Photo Challenge ~ Sleepy Dogs

Sleepy puppies and dogs…. they are so up there in the cuteness stakes!

If you’re anything like me, you can barely stop yourself from squeezing them or playing with their whiskers in all their sweet adorableness.  Plus, if you have a busy or excitable dog then it’s often the quiet and still time that you infrequently get to spent together.

The alternative, though, to disturbing your dog or puppy from their sleep, is to capture that sweetness in photos.  Letting them have their sweet dreams.

This Week’s Theme: SLEEPY DOGS!

I’m quite sure this week’s photo challenge is going to have us all feel that little bit more blissed out, content and relaxed.  There’s just something about a sleeping dog that certainly makes me feel that way and looking at a whole bunch of photos of dogs doing just that – well, that’s sounds paw-some 😀

Take or find your favourite sleepy dog photos for this week.  Anything sleepy, snoozing, yawning, resting, ready for bed, all tuckered out and those crazy uncomfortable (yet oh so funny) sleep positions that we find our puppies and dogs is welcome in this challenge.  And, as always, you’re welcome to apply the theme creatively (ummm, maybe a dog taking a ‘catnap’).

We can’t wait to check out all the sleepy cuteness of your photos this week!

Some ‘SLEEPY DOGS’ Inspiration

In these ‘Sleepy Dogs’ inspired photos we have:

Top: All tuckered out sleepy puppies – Bella, Lilly & Rosie

Middle: Border Collie Summer all tucked up and ready for snoozy time; Puppy Keiko – don’t you just love how pups and dogs rub their noses when they are tired.

Grown up Japanese Spitz Keiko – he doesn’t mind the opportunity to snuggle into the human bed!

German Shepherd Puppy Axel – feel asleep mid play and that meant this somewhat uncomfortable looking sleep spot!  Golden Retriever Bailey settles into to have a snooze on the couch with her human.

Bottom: Border Collie Summer chooses a favourite toy as her pillow for a mid afternoon sleep.

However you share, don’t forget to include your dogs name/s. If there is a great story, or puppy tale, that goes with your photo them we’d also love to hear it! Especially if you’re sending us something creative and we may not immediately ‘get’ how your photo fits the theme!
