19 Dogs Sleeping In Totally Ridiculous Positions

February 4, 2017

Anyone who has a dog knows that they’re goofy little (or big) animals. They’re funny and cute, but they’re truly full members of the family.

Lots of dogs think that because they’re “man’s best friend” it means they can do whatever they want whenever they want — whether that be stealing food off their owners’ plates, hiding their owners’ clothes, or sleeping in their owners’ beds.

One thing that makes dogs unique from their human counterparts, though, is their ability to fall asleep in literally any position.

Although they normally like to sleep in cozy places (like we do), sometimes they get too tired and just fall asleep wherever they are, in whatever position they’re in.

This happens a lot with young puppies who just can’t figure out when they’re about to fall asleep, but it’s arguably even funnier when it happens with full-grown dogs. Take a look at the dogs in the pictures below — they’ll definitely make you laugh!
