Bad Dream?

I am pretty sure Gumbo just had a bad dream. He was soundly sleeping on the couch and suddenly woke up, snarled and snapped (yes, I said snarled, my Gumbo) and looked REALLY dazed. He was ok after a couple scratches but I've never seen him have a dream like that before.

Any experiences to share?

My dogs have barked and whimpered in their sleep. I've never had one growl and snap when they woke up. He must've had a REALLY bad dream!

I think he was dreaming about his mummy getting 30+ chinnies and was freaking out that she wouldn't have ALL her time to love and dote on little gumbo wumbo

Too lazy to even think of a siggy

Yes I think my dogs have had dreams before, mainly Penny. She let out little barks and howls a few times in her sleep before, it freaked me out. But no snarling! Wow that must've been a bad dream, poor Gumbo!

this has happened with Penny before. once she was having a bad dream and twitching a lot, so i tried to wake her up by rubbing her tummy and she woke up and snapped at me. yikes!! but after she really woke up and realized what was up she was fine.

Just this weekend.. Odie was at the vet saturday morning, and saturday night he was napping at my sister's bed and she told me that he suddenly woke up with a growl and checked his bum.. I guess he was dreaming about the vet visit in the morning.. hehe

This happened last night with Simon. He was dead asleep, sprung up like a bolt, yelped, growled and looked WAY dazed. I reassured him everything was ok, he looked like he didn't know where he was.

Then he came and snuggled with me and fell back asleep...lol he is such a baby. Although husband on one side, German Shep on the other and the 3 month olf australian shep across my legs, I was warm, but a little crowded.

Aww...Poor Gumbo! Kali and Orion "run" in their sleep and whimper and sometimes bark, but neither has ever snapped upon waking.
My old Chow-Chow Kayjin used to all the time though...towards her elderly years she was mostly blind and completely deaf, so when she awoke from a bad dream, it was best not to be too close!
