    Unhappy Does your dog ever sleep bark???

    Well, last night I didn't get a whole lot of sleep...at 3am Tinkerbelle decided to stand up on the bed and bark out the window. She doesn't normally bark much...just when the UPS man comes.(She doesn't like him).
    She was standing there and giving about 1 bark every 30-60 seconds...and had her eyes closed. This went on for 45 minutes....a long 45 minutes.
    I talked to her, told her no one was out there, looked out the window several times...but she continued to bark every minute. I even bopped her on her rear end after about 30 minutes of this, it didn't even faze her.
    So...has this ever happened with your dog??? or, do I have the nut in the group....

    Casper yips in his sleep, usually laying on the floor next to me. Once in a great while, he chases something--legs are running like crazy. Pretty funny to watch.

    Yes! Our little poodle does quite often. His paws move and his body squirms. The other day he barked and woke himself up. He came running to me and tucked his body behind mine. Must have been a big dog.

    I have three poodles and they all do some form of it, but I never have had one get up and stand on his/her hind legs and bark like they were awake. Now, when they're awake, that's a whole different story.

    Out of the five little dogs I have had over the years, all but two has made all kinds of sounds while asleep. All the hyper ones seem to do it. Some even yipped, don't think any barked.
    I do have a 16 year old cat that will 'talk' if he runs out of water or wants out of the room. Sounds like he is trying to say hello with out the Ls. He makes other noises also. He is wide awake.

    Phoebe will sleep-yip, growl, or "run-in-place" but has never sleep-walked. She's probably too lazy, for that.

    Our 4 month old Yellow Lab, Molly, does not bark while awake. She has, however, barked, yipped and yapped while sleeping. Last night she woke us up barking in her sleep. I went to her side and she woke up, looking really dazed - musta been a good dream!!!

    I have had dogs all my life and have never had one that stood up and barked continuously with eyes closed like that. It seems pretty unusual to me, although I've had many that "trot" and yip while sleeping on their sides. I would say that it's odd enough that if your dog does that again, you might want to ask your vet for an opinion about it.

    I wonder what would happen if you picked Tinkerbelle up while she was doing this. You might want to be careful, though, because if she's dreaming about something bad, she might make a mistake and nip you!
    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
