A Transformation Under The Full Moon

Our evening walk last week was spent under a full moon.

The streets were quiet and Eko stared at the moon with a mischievous twinkle in his eye

Back at home everything seemed normal…

But then I started hearing low werewolf-like growls from Eko’s contorted body

And then the fanged beast appeared!  Or at least it looked that way to me.

Turns out that Eko was just having one of his “sleepwalking” episodes that never fail to crack me up.  I particularly enjoy his “monster face” where on the frequent occasions Eko falls asleep upside down (no clue how that’s comfortable) his mouth droops and his “fangs” show.

Anyone else have a pup who sleeps upside down like that?

  1. That is how Buddy sleeps almost all the time. After I adopted him, it was about a week later he started laying on his back and falling asleep, I would crack up at first.
    He will also sit up in the front seat of my truck when we go for a car ride. He looks like he is watching where we go, just in case we get lost and he has to take over. He sits up like a person would and passing people look and start laughing.

  2. Sistah Nalle sleeps like that sometimes. She growls and sometimes even howls like a real wolf in her sleep! Woooooooooooooooooooooooo!

  3. My mom tells me that I turn into psycho piggy like that sometimes. I grumble in my sleep dreaming of playing with the rabbits in the backyard. Sometimes I snore. But in NO way can I be as cute as you Eko. That first picture especially with the moon – breathtaking! I give you three hooves up for that one but I would fall over 🙂 XOXO – Bacon
