The ol’ flop and sleep.

Sometimes I restrict the amount of time talk about Charles (aka Chuck, Charlie, Chuckles, Scoot or other spur of the moment, sporadic names) because I don’t want to be a crazy dog lady. I don’t think I am…but I might be and that fear keeps his travails and adventures under wraps most of the time. But, eh, I heart my dog. So deal with it.

On that note, Charles is a crazy sleeper. He sleeps with me most nights, so I would know. Occasionally he’ll curl up at the end of the bed and stay that way the entire night — rare but it does happen. Most nights he’s up and wiggling about. He’ll toss, turn and scratch until he’s happy. If it’s a really rough night he’ll get up, move around and then throw his 8 lb. body against my back. Just thrash and toss to make sure that I know he’s not a happy camper. He’s really precious. I swear.

Amongst his crazy sleeping habits are his crazy sleeping positions. With his liver problem he is often exhausted to the point of being floppy. You can contort him about like a rag doll and he will barely open his eyes. He will let you do as you will. This being the case, he falls asleep and happily remains in some of the most bizarre places and positions. Because I love my dog and want to share his joy with the world, I (the ever generous picture sharer) am here to document his greatest moments. Tada:

Told you they were good.

Charlie's too tired to move!
Can't quite pull his last leg into the bed.

Naptime for Charlie.
Between a pillow and a soft spot.

Charlie sleeping on his back. Sort of.
Half-n-half. Can't quite pick a position, so he just combines them.

Charlie stuffed in the couch.
Wedged between the side of the couch and the cushion...

Charlie likes to nap on his back.
Feeling floppy.

Magazines = warmth during naptime.
Taking cover for his nap. Under a magazine that is.

Isn’t he precious? I thought so too.
