    DefaultSleeping with eyes open.

    I sit in the recliner for hours every evening either watching TV or reading. If I am in the chair--so is Mardi. She sleeps with her eyes open and it looks weird. Her lids droop and all I see is bloodshot sclera. She also whines, twitches and trembles and looks like she is having a seizure. When she is sleeping more quietly, she snores. I know she isn't seizing because I used to have a dog who had real seizures. I have never had such a clingy dog and it is great for my ego .

    She's probably dreaming. Jack sometimes moves his legs in his sleep as if running, and often jerks, whines, even a tiny bark. When he was a very young puppy, he sucked in his sleep. He also snores. And yes, they do love to be right next to us~ thus the term "velcro dogs"

    Buddy dreams a lot in his sleep. Twitches, running feet, snorts, woofs, whimpers, 'growls,' and my favorite - the thumping tail! He will wag his tail hard, thumping against the floor or the wall, and it almost sounds like a drum beat. It's not his normal, fast wag, it is slower, harder, and goes thump! Thump! Thump-THUMP! Thumppp!

    He likes being in the same room with me, and will wake out of a sound sleep to follow me to another room, but he is not a snuggler or cuddler.
    Jackie, Champ, and Buddy
