Let Sleeping Dogs Lie – A Collection Of 15 Photos Of Napping Canines

January 15th, 2009 by Dan

The old idiom “let sleeping dogs lie” simply means that a person shouldn’t disturb a situation as it could result in trouble. While waking up our dogs doesn’t usually cause any problem, care should always be taken when waking up a slumbering canine, as they might be surprised by their human alarm clock!

I find my sleeping dogs to be a very peaceful sight. My Pit Bull curls into a tight little ball of dog after turning circles in her bed. My Dogue De Bordeaux will sprawl his massive frame out on the floor, often using a corner of a dog bed as a pillow. He snores – it’s often laughable how loud and human it sounds. I enjoy knowing that they are comfortable and relaxed at home.

I’ve found some fantastic photos of slumbering canines. Are they dreaming of bones or chasing the squirrel that got away? Check out these 15 images of dogs catching up on their beauty sleep!
