These dogs remind me of my own dog, a greyhound who used to sleep upside down (with paw in the air and tongue hanging out until it dried) all the time! She'd give soft little yips as she slept, and her paws would twitch; chasing a fantasy rabbit, no doubt. She died ten years ago, before I had a digital camera, but maybe I'll scan an image in.
She cut her armpit on barbed wire and developed that nasty *flesh-eating* necrotizing fascitis caused by strep bacteria. This was really scary. From home we treated her with IV gentamycin, and remarkably she recovered to live four more years. When she was 11 she developed a fast-growing thyroid tumor that choked her. Our family gave up our summer vacation so that she could have surgery, but sadly it didn't work.
Anyway, smile when you look at these pictures :-) Dogs are so wonderful.
