Sleeping dog images are some of the most popular and highly searched-for photos on the internet. 

We’re a social media-obsessed culture, so it’s no surprise that we want to scroll through countless images of dogs snoozing, napping, and lounging. Most of us have hundreds (or thousands) of images of sleeping pups filling up our phones. We can’t help but share the silly poses, cuddly cuteness, and funky positions of our sleeping dogs. 

Luckily, we found 26 of the cutest sleeping dog images out there—all available and ready for your “awwwwws.” 

Warning: Viewing these images may provoke feelings of wanting to snuggle your dog or wanting to rush out to the shelter to put in an adoption application.

Take one part stuffed animal, add in one adorable doggo, and you’ve got all the makings of a cuddle puddle. #YoureWelcome

A dog sleepwalks into a bar. He tells the bartender “ZZZZ I’m a cat ZZZZ I’m a cat.” The bartender says “Yes sir you are.”

The bartender replies “You’ve gotta’ let sleeping dogs lie.”
