Why do bullies sleep with their tongues hanging out?

Zimmer goes into a deep sleep, with the little pink tongue out..what is up with that? It looks like lots of bullies do that.

I was thinking the same thing...or...

it just naturally slips out when relaxed...or it's designed that way for the cutest of pictures!!

I don't know, but I LOVE IT!!!

I always know when it's nap/bed time for Bailey because her little tongue sticks right out as if to say: "Mommy, I'm sleepy".

Simple anwser...

Bully's are very smart dogs and they sleep with their tongues out for a very good reason. It's how they forecast the weather.

If they wake up and their tongue is wet - it's raining
If they wake up and their tongue is dry - it's not
If they wake up and it's cold and wet - snowing
If they wake up and it's dry and tastes of dirt - it's not raining and I was sweeping with the broom too close to that lazy lump of fur sleeping on my kitchen floor

The same reason some sleep with a toy in their mouth....

I read somewhere that they use their tongue (or sometimes a soft toy) while sleeping as padding to keep their sharp teeth from poking their mouth. It made sense to me.

Belle and Cody have theirs out awake or sleeping...

cause Cody's doesn't fit to well in his mouth unless his mug is pointed skyward..gravity you know...and Belle's is so cute and tiny and pink..but also doesn't fit in to well..so they sleep ala-raspberry...
MoJo is a private fellow and seldom lets you see his tongue...awake or sleeping...lol..ce

Tongues out......

I have figured out why Daisy sleeps with her tongue hanging out. It is too long to keep in her mouth!!LOL
Other than that, I cannot think of any good reason why they do this.

Maybe it has to do with their breathing?

That's about the only explanation I can think of.

Well,

Do you think if I posted it on the medical board someone might have the answer?



That is a great picture...what Zimmer looks like when I say "let

this tongue thing MUST mean something...maybe we need the pet psychic here to help us.

CATHY!!!

Cathy, found this and had to send it to you!



Maybe their tounge is too fat lol!

I often wondered that myself, you should see Gertie swim, the whole thing sticks upright in the air lol!

but my two always sleep with their tounges out, Milo's gets all hard in the morning and he likes it when I play with it lol!

Good Question.

Rudy does it all the time and after a while it gets so dry it feels like sand paper...

I hope someone can tell us why.
