Did you read our recent article by Dr. Patty Khuly about dogs sleeping belly up? Based on your Facebook comments about that story, it sounds like many of your dogs (and cats!) are relaxed, easygoing pets who love snoozing on their backs.

Tiger confirms that sleeping belly up is not only comfy, it's practical. Tummies are a great place to keep toy mice while sleeping.
