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.
it just naturally slips out when relaxed...or it's designed that way for the cutest of pictures!! Smiles, Jeanne
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". Cheers! Tonya

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
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.
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 Ce's Bulldogs and Friends Album
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.Lynn, Jane and the Bully Pack
it looks very cute seems like it would feel bad thoe...
Lucy is always sleeping with her tongue out. We have many pics of this

That's about the only explanation I can think of.
Do you think if I posted it on the medical board someone might have the answer?
this tongue thing MUST mean something...maybe we need the pet psychic here to help us.
Cathy, found this and had to send it to you!
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!
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.
