An Ode to Sleeping Dogs

Most of us who own dogs have something in common. We have a bazillion pictures of our dogs. And about 90% of those pictures are of the dogs sleeping. That’s because dogs sleep 90% of the day. Plus, it’s the only way some of us can get them to be still enough for a good photo. But there’s a misconception that all sleeping dog pictures are the same. Oh no they’re not. The variations are almost endless. Here, I’ll prove it…
