Deep Thoughts...sleep barking

Remember that nap I said I needed after my full day of DIY shopping and eating?  Well, after enjoying some custard, we all headed back to Gammy and Gampy's and I totally zonked out.  My mom was so excited because she has wanted to catch me on video barking in my sleep for 8 years now, and I finally obliged.  Even though it's a bit embarrassing to show my belly jiggle, I told her she could post it.  (It's dark and blurry.  We...well everyone but me...was watching a movie so most of the lights were off.  And mom was nervous about waking me so the angle isn't very good either.)  Make sure you turn up the volume on your speakers because the barks get more quiet as the film goes on.

So, my deep thought has to do with what I was dreaming about...  My mom is always curious what thoughts would cause such a reaction.  What do you guys think?  Could it be that I'm chasing a squirrel...or my Cuz?  Maybe I'm reliving one of my fun adventures?  Or barking at my parents for not giving me enough food?  I'll never tell.


PS.  I've got some good ear infection finally disappeared!  No more drops and no more icky, stinky!  Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and prayers!

Mack and I are so happy your ear infection has FINALLY gone away! I'm working on clearing up one now :(. I don't mind the medicine in my ear since Hu-mom rubs my ears when she puts it in and feels sooo good! I think I got mine when I had my last bath and water got into my ears....maybe.

We love your video. I think you were chasing a squirrel!

Drools and licks,

I cry out in my sleep too. Who knows what we are dreaming about?!

Hilarious. Glad you're feeling better.

Hi Payton! I loved your video. My parents adore the dream-bark - it's such a tiny sound - I think they wish my normal barks were that cute.

I do the same thing in my sleep sometimes but my parents haven't been able to catch me on camera because it is a rare occurrence. Do you always bark in your dreams? I usually move my feet and muzzle around and my breathing changes when I'm dreaming. My parents say they can detect when I'm about to start dreaming based on my breathing sounds. And they think I dream about eating because my muzzle twitches.

I think you were probably dreaming about that McCheesy from earlier in the day - and you were just barking for more!

P.S. Glad to hear your ears are all better!

I bark and run in my sleep. Mom thinks I dream about playing with all the dogs at daycare!

Happy to hear you are feeling better!

Hi Payton! I think you were dreaming about playing football! You were dreaming you were scoring a touchdown for the Bears and the barks are part of your end zone celebration.

Congrats on getting rid of your ear infection. My ears are starting to bother me again because it's been so wet. I think I need some drops, a big bully stick, and a nice quiet house.

Yeah so glad no more drops. Those are no fun. And we do lots of sleep barking too sometimes so loud we wake ourselves up.

Glad your ear is better. We had a lot of fun dog piling yesterday. Too bad the sun went away. Lucky and I both bark and whimper in our sleep. I don't know why. Maybe I am in fields of broccoli and I can't get at it. Mom always pets me to tell me I am safe.

Hi Payton, I dream bark and dream run in my sleep, my Daddy says I'm chasing rabbits but I don't think I have ever seen one to know what one looks like to chase! I think you are dreaming of your daily adventures...and maybe the food thing! Super happy that your ear infection has gone! Love, licks and pHUGS Frank x x x x
