It’s no secret that dogs love to sleep. Anytime. Anywhere. Whether it’s after a long day at the dog park or an excessive amount of playing, dogs will often get so sleepy that they can’t even keep their eyes open.

However, not all dogs sleep curled up in a bed or lying on the floor. These dogs prove that! Here’s a collection of some of the funniest photos showing just how crazy dog’s sleep positions can be!

This pup was so tired that she had no choice but to sleep flat against the floor. Perhaps the floor was nice and cool during a hot summer day.

All dogs sleep in different positions, but as long as they’re comfortable, that’s all that matters. It’s okay to chuckle at some of the stranger sleeping positions though. Next time your dog is napping, pay attention to the interesting positions they sleep in. Maybe they could become an internet star too! Share pics of your pup sleeping in the comments – we love a good laugh.
