    Default Dogs dreaming

    I have wondered this for quite sometime now. What does it mean when a dog whimpers while they sleep. Im sure they are dreaming but I always wonder if Sammy is running from an awful, mean, nasty dog. Or could he be bounding in the grass, something he loves to do, and chasing a bird or dragonfly?
    My mom thinks her dogs need to be woken up and loved on. She somehow thinks they are having a nightmare. What do you think?

    I think they dream. Sometimes bad dreams, sometimes happy dreams, just like us.
    The dog we used to have when I was little would sometimes be acting like he was eating/slobbering in his sleep.

    Elmo even barks when he's dreaming.

    My dog will whimper and make running motions. Sometimes he wakes up disoriented. Like- where's that bunny rabbit?!

    They're dreaming, probably of running and playing.. they don't need to be woken up, just let them dream. They need it just as much as we do.

    My cats definitely dream. They make noises, twitch their paws and tails, and even blink their eyes. I think they dream they're hunting, but who really knows?

    I hate to be woken up when I'm dreaming because I'm usually trying to accomplish something. I would think that dogs would feel the same way. What if the're just about to get that squirrel, and you go and wake them up?

    I wake Elmo up cuz he starts grunting and panting etc. So I should leave him alone, eh? I just think that he might be having a nightmare so I want to spare him the horror!

    I am convinced dogs and cats dream. Our little terrier user to growl and bark sometimes, and she did lots of running.

    My horse was lying on his side asleep in the field on Sunday morning and he was doing the running thing - I've never seen him do that before.
    A big boy did it and ran away.

    I dont wake Sammy, I just listen and watch. I actually think its cute.

    BTW I like your sig Pacific, my husband was drinking some water when he heard this on tv last night. Asked me if he had heard it right, I said yes you did as I was laughing not only at him but the quote. Sugar Tits.

    we have 4 dogs...and they all dream....looks like they are running after something..or playing...they bark too


    i have a friend that is debating putting her dog down (due to old age) and she actually asked some vets opinions...they told her dogs dont have emotions...they dont feel jealousy or hatred

    now i dont know about any of you..but as soon as i pet one of the dogs...the other 3 have to butt in and get their turn...and no hatred?? what about when they attack? there must be something they dont like

    how can a vet say they have no emotions? its pretty obvious to me my dogs do..especially my boyfriends pug..what a lil bugger..talks back and everything!!

    That vet is an incompetent moron. Of course dogs have emotions. What a ridiculous thing to say. Not jealous? Has this vet ever SEEN a dog in his life?

    I think they do dream. My dog sleeps in my room and she frequently makes noises when she's sleeping. It's like she's chasing something or like trying to bark. I think it's cute too. I also like when she's stretching and makes this noise that sounds like a little monster.
