QUIRKS #BLOGGING FROM A-Z

Quirks! Everybody’s got a few…

Q

If I had to choose a peculiar behavioral habit with the Goldendoodle – paws down it would have to be their crazy, zany sleeping positions.

Sleeping on their back, stretched all the way out, seems to be the most popular among this group…

Jaxson

And not just for my two.

Check out this overload of cuteness named Mable doing her “thang”…

MABLE

Harley on the other hand, prefers for all the blood to rush to the top of his head, when he’s getting his nap on #doodlewithamigraine

This position I can’t even begin to explain or defend…

Mimicking our human behavior is a specialty with Goldendoodles. Right down to the afternoon napping position…

    I wonder if that’s the (Golden) Retriever in them? Callie used to let the blood rush to her head, too. Or, she’d curl up on the end of the couch with her head hanging over the arm of it. Shadow has all sorts of wacky positions too. And Ducky just mimics her sister.

      You could be on to something. I’ve also seen Golden’s hang they’re head down while sleeping. I should have asked that question in the blog post. Interesting…

    Those are some adorable and crazy sleeping positions-some do not look comfortable at all!

      You’ve got that right Tiffany. I used to worry that they would start to have problems, but I don’t anymore. They’re much more flexible than I am – that’s for sure.

    Yes! Haley does the same thing as Harley, the hanging the head down while sleeping. Sometimes I move her so her head is supported, but she usually gets up and leaves, like I’ve disturbed her comfortable sleeping position, lol!

      I’veneer tried to move Harley, I’m just amazed that he’s not dizzy or doesn’t lose his balance when he gets up HA!

    They are pretty amusing!

    Chloe and LadyBug have similar positions! I have often wondered how on earth they can sleep like that!

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 20, 2016

      Jeanne, you and me both! If I slept like them, I would need to crawl to a chiropractor for sure LOL

    The head hanging off the couch is hysterical. I get a little dizzy just looking at that picture.

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 20, 2016

      And he will sleep like that for well over an hour in that position too! Incredible!

    These pictures are so cute! I love sleeping pet pictures. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to sleep in whatever position you happened to fall into? My kitties do the same sorts of things. I love when they stretch out and let their bellies show.

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 20, 2016

      Sometimes I think I would be crippled if I slept in any of those positions. LOL

    Corgis are very good at those odd positions as well! Hard to figure how some of it is comfortable!

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 20, 2016

      Really? I’d love to see that. I think Corgis are super cute, but I don’t believe I’ve ever seen one in person.

    You look so comfy!!! 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 20, 2016

      Do you sleep in these awkward positions too Spencer? Inquiring Doodle Mom’s want to know 🙂

  • Jackie Bouchard

    Cute pics! Rita sometimes sleeps with her head hanging off the sofa and it makes my head hurt just to look at!

    Love to see a pup sleeping belly up – makes me think they must feel very secure! 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2016

      I heard that too! If that’s the case, then Harley must feel safe like when he was in his momma’s womb, because that’s his go to position any and everywhere. LOL

    They sleep almost as quirky as us cats! Or at least me…I do have some weird sleeping positions. ~Wally

      Cats are the masters of quirky sleeping positions. And the tiny little boxes and baskets you all can squeeze into for a nap is impressive.

    Oh! So many Quirks! Totally agree – my dogs sleep upside down a bunch and it’s hilarious — we have a ramp for the doxies and sometimes half their body is down the ramp! lol!

      Now that’s a photo worth sharing!

    Quirks are what makes life special and your doodles’ sleeping positions are ADORABLE! I never tire of looking at your photos of Jaxson and Harley. They’re magnificent, majestic and sweet looking all at once. Looks like they’re so much fun to be around.

      They are truly a bundle of joy – I wish you could meet them .Took Harley to the Children’s hospital Tuesday for his first day of Pet Therapy with them. He was amazing. I will post about it after this blogging challenge. So excited. Take care Jasmine!

    They are so adorable!!
    Hahaha, #doodlewithamigraine that’s an awesome #!

      Thanks Valerie – I love #’s Have a great day!

    Harley looks like he’s going to fall off the couch and hit his head! lol

    The boys love sleeping upside down, twisted like a pretzel. It always looks so uncomfortable, but it can’t be, or they’d get up and move.

    Give your fur kids a smooch for me! 😉

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2016

      I’ve never tried to move them, because I know it would be disturbing them. I used to wait to see if they were stumbling around when they got up – nope! At me age, I get dizzy bending down to pick something up! LOL Smooches to your crew too!

  • Ruth Cox

    Gotta love that afternoon nap position! My dog Valentino prefers sleeping curled up in a big ball.

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2016

      Ruth, between the two of them, they have the oddest sleeping positions.

  • Pedro and Alessandra
    April 21, 2016

    Wonderful post! So true and so funny too! I don’t think I’ve seen Pedro do the #doodlewithamigraine position, but the belly (and everything else) showing pose is a favourite. He also loves to stretch across the kitchen and the hallway, giving us a sideways look if we happen to disturb him while walking around or over him 🙂 Makes us laugh and wonder -as others have said- how on earth is that comfy? But with Goldendoodles, their quirks are always a big reason to smile!

    • Cathy Bennett

      They are a comedy routine all by themselves. I wish I had the $$ to rescue about two more. I love having them around.

    Mr. N also adores sleeping on his back and stealing people’s pillows so he can sleep with his head on them.

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2016

      Pillows are as enticing to our pups as much as they are to us I guess 🙂

  • Jan K

    Those are some dogs that are truly comfortable in their home! My favorite is when they have their head on the pillow just like a human. Sheba does that the most…must be a golden thing!

    • Cathy Bennett
      April 21, 2016

      I think so, they both love pillows. Jax uses them when he gets in my bed – ugh!!! He will share my pillow initially. Harley prefers the couch pillows #gofigure Such characters – I love it!
