my dog

This is my dog:



The strip is called Zack Hill, and the dog is a very accurate portrayal of a Boston Terrier.

It could be obstructive sleep apnea. I prescribe a CPAP. (Now let's see him try to strap one of those things onto a dog, and it sounds like a vacuum cleaner, so the dog will go bonkers, this ought to be fun!)

I bet he snorts and snuffles occasionally too. I had a Boston Terrier when I was a teenager. As Brutus got older, he snored louder and we had to turn up the volume on the television or wake him up. He didn't appreciate being waken before he was ready.

My shih tzus make cute little snuffly snores. It's a very nice soft background. And a comforting sound.

Several of my cats are snorers. Generally, it's not that loud, however, I do have a few who like to sleep right up next to my head, and when they start up, it's loud enough.

I'll have to check that comic strip out. It looks like one I'd like.

I am told that I make rather spastic muscle movements coupled with cute snorting sounds when I dream about chasing squirrels. I don't believe them, of course.

When I was a kid, my dog -- a malamute who thought she was a lap dog -- could shake the bed frame when she snored. However, if I left the stereo on at night she was quiet.

My pug Oompa Loompa used to sleep on my head and snore away.

It was always a contest at who could snore louder.

My Oscar snores lightly sometimes. My Maggie, however, takes things to a different level with her dream-talking. She loudly moans and cries and whines and barks and it tends to worry visitors, but she has always done it (she's very "talky" anyway when awake, and through whines and rfffs and growly moans rather than barks). My late Airedale, Monty, used to do what in Airedale Terrier circles is called The Midnight Howl. This isn't just a normal dog howl, but rather one done by the dog while sleeping, and is a sound that builds up almost exactly like an air-raid siren, until the neighbours are switching on their lights wondering what that horrific, Lovecraftian wail is, and how long their souls are for this world (we did not have any souls left after the first incident from Monty, them having been scared from us to hide in the darkest corners of the cosmos). As mentioned, the source is still asleep, even while his cries shake your foundations (literal and metaphorical). It's times like that that you can appreciate the gentle, lulling tones of a simple snore.

Cheers,
Marc

My dogs have become quite the little plotters and planners. This is off topic simply because it has nothing to do with snoring, however ...

When I walk the dogs, they are supposed to keep their heads up and walk. However, they like to smell everything on the trail, which slows us down, so I don't generally allow it.

Lately, however, they have discovered an interesting ruse. One will start limping (ow ... mom, I have a sticker in my paw), so, I allow the limping doggie to stop and lie down so she can get the sticker out of her paw. Then, I noticed that, rather than lick the paw to get the sticker out .... the nose simply starts sniffing around. Ha ... no real sticker. Fake out!!

I used to let them work the sticker out on their own before getting in there and removing it myself, however, since they have started pulling this stunt, I'm immediately checking the gimpy paw. If there is nothing there, we are moving on down the trail.

Sneaky little buggers.
