How often do your dogs dream?


Seems like lately everyday Chessie has what I call Ruff Dreams. She's growling and "ruffing" (low huffing bark) as she sleeps. I can't figure out why so much lately. She hasn't had any recent issues with other dogs and no issues with people at all. The only dog that we've had any problems with moved over 4 months ago.

Anyone else with a dreamer?

LOL... as I sit here typing this... Chessie is sleeping next to me and her tail is wagging. :gig So it's not only Ruff Dreams but Sweet Dreams as well LOL.

Oh yeh...Cici has an array of sounds...light, squeaky barks, growls, running, deeper barks and even some belly shaking rumbles when asleep.

What I am really curious about is how much others snort, sneeze, purrrr and gurgle when petted or happy. Cici is very demonstrative with her sounds when she gets a belly rub, for example...She even opens her mouth and says "hahhhhhhh" hahhhh" when petted and then gurgles and purrs.

When excited at walk time, she snorts, sneezes, twists her body and turns her head left and right. Then she may bow and do a gargling like sound...

I've had dogs before (not cockers) and none were sound machines.

Charlie dreams a lot! He makes all kinds of noises and moves his paws too. I find it funny and never wake him up but my boyfriend thinks he's having nightmares and will gently wake him up to make sure he's ok.

I've always wondered what kind of dreams he's having. Is he chasing cats and birds, barking at other dogs, etc...

Sperry makes noises in his sleep too, sometimes a howl but it's usual a high pitched squeak almost. It seems like he dreams the most after a really tiring day: hiking, boating, etc.

Last night my leg was getting a beating by his stubby. Sometimes some kind of sounds come out.

Our second cocker was a real singer. She would sing along with me "Camp Down Day's, but one night around 1AM "It's a Wonderful Would" came on the radio and she sat up and started howling. Don't know if she was awake at the time. We could never get her to do it again. Even bough the Louis Armstrong cd.
