The widely popular Facebook group Dogspotting Society is also a place where some of the most entertaining 100% doggo-proved hashtag challenges take place. Previously, every dog owner seemed to be in on the viral buzz, submitting their funny pics for the Look Alike Challenge, Smiling Dog Challenge, Guilty Dog Challenge, and Didn't Want A Dog Challenge‬.

This time, the new #SleepingDogChallenge is making the headlines with 15K people posting their best snaps of their bestest gurls and goodest bois nodding off. Except that the photographs are all about the weirdest sleeping positions, truly questionable comfort levels, and very bizarre choices for places to nap, which makes it all the funnier.

You see, we’ve all heard about the odd and wonderful powers of the catnap, but this time, it’s time to see the dognap, a canine-fave practice consisting of 33% shut-eye, 33% pure wholesomeness, and 33% ‘how the heck did they get there?!’ moments. The remaining one percent is the magic ingredient, Zzz, which makes you fall asleep anywhere as long as you’re tired enough.

Puppy batteries are very small. They tend to run down at frequently random times

Bored Panda reached out to Emily Grace Pratt, the proud mom of a 5-year-old cockapoo who went viral after Emily posted her photo where she seems to be totally dozed off on a sofa in a hilarious position. The image was submitted to #SleepingDogChallenge and received 27k reactions, many of them praising how cute it is.

Emily said her cockapoo is very loving and needy, and that she “always finds her in funny sleeping positions. Plus, she’s always fast asleep after a big dinner.”

When asked about other funny sleeping positions Emily finds her dog in, she sent us a couple more adorable pics of the furball nodding off on the same grey sofa. Curled up, head on the side of the sofa, and her grinning face totally make her one of the most deserved #SleepingDogChallenge contestants.

“I definitely think she finds it comfy,” said Emily and added that “I didn’t expect it to go viral at all, was just posting to join in on the hashtag for fun.”

Unlike humans, who typically stay up most of the day and then go to sleep for one long period of time, dogs sleep multiple times. This is because dogs have a polyphasic sleep pattern, meaning they sleep multiple times throughout a 24-hour period. Interestingly, while adult humans sleep from 6 to 8 hours a day, dog sleep bouts only stretch up to an hour and can often be as short as 45 minutes.

On average, puppies sleep between 18 and 20 hours a day, while grown-up dogs may sleep 9 to 14 hours a day with daytime naps and night sleep combined.

On the other hand, dogs are quite flexible with their sleeping patterns and can easily adapt to their environment. Many dogs have powers unknown to most humans—that is, they can wake up fast and spring into action in seemingly no time.

Imagine the last time the doorbell rang, when it probably took your sleeping dog less time than you to go from your lap to the door.

On the other hand, dogs, just like humans, benefit from a designated sleeping schedule. It helps canines and their owners have a clear daytime routine of eating, going to the bathroom, exercising, and having a rest.

Try not to give your four-legged friend too much food before night as the final step before shutting their eyes should be going to the toilet, not gorging on a bowl of crunchy snacks. Also, a designated place for your dog to sleep is a must so that he feels like he is in control of the space.
