How to tell you have a Dutch Shepherd

Post by TimL_168 » Sat Sep 02, 2017 10:18 am

Laying on the couch after a very hard week of work. Spent the last hour laying trails, working trails, playing fetch, tug, OB, etc. En is passed out along side me. She's dreaming. But, unlike every other dog I've ever had, she's not just whimpering and twitching her feet dreaming of chasing a critter. En is full bore growling in her sleep. Lips twitching. Toes digging in.
This must be where the phrase "let sleeping dogs lie" came from.
