Our dogs teach us a ton, and one of the lessons we could all learn a bit better is how to sleep hard. Dogs and puppies know how to sleep. Their little paws twitching in dreamland, those soft, rhythmic breaths, and the pure innocence on their faces — it's a scene straight out of a storybook. As we get closer to the New Year, these sleeping pups are a great reminder that we have to hit that snooze button from time to time.

Tummy Up

A tummy exposed means the doggy knows they can trust you with their life. Their vital organs are all in there, and they’re exposing themselves to serious danger, at least according to their instincts.

Off to Dreamland
