Everyone loves puppies, whether they are playing, posing for photos or even just sleeping. Shih Tzu puppy, Paningning, is one of the latest adorable canines to steal the heart of the internet, not for teddy bear face - but for her hilarious sleeping positions.

Owner Janess Cua uploaded photos of Paningning to the Facebook group Dog Lovers Philippines, which showed the animal sleeping on her back in a human-like position, with an exposed belly. The photos quickly spread across platforms and now Paningning is a viral sensation with 55.5k followers on her official Instagram page. Cua told Bored Panda “That is her sleeping position since birth because it's the way she feels most comfortable.” Even though many of her photos feature the dog sleeping, her owner said Paningning is very playful and enjoys romping around with her siblings. Scroll down below to check out some photos of this sleepy pup and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Paningning is the youngest of a litter born to Cua's dog Baobei. Now three months she is the only tri-colored of her siblings. Originally her owners named her ‘Maningning’, which translated to bright in Filipino, because of her distinct coloring. But her daughter wanted her name to start with ‘P’ so it became Paningning.

Paningning's successful Instagram account was created by one of her adoring fans, "Later on, he turned over that page to me so that I can continue to post pictures and videos of Paningning," Cua explained. The account features more than just sleeping photos and her popularity has evolved into Paningning merch

Sleeping is only one of Paningning's hobbies "she loves to eat and sleep." While in her photos she may appear to be just a good-natured and sweet puppy, her owner admits, like many puppies, "most of the time she’s very naughty."

According to her owner, Paningning never sleeps any other way, "For me, She’s just a normal puppy that loves to sleep on her back." The delightful photos of the Shih Tzu have not only created a fan base but spurned many memes by eager photo-shoppers.
