Just a cute photo to start off the week. Alayne got this shot over the weekend of blind Sophie, our diabetic Dachshund, sound asleep in the living room with her very pink tongue hanging out. (Nothing wrong with her right eye, just scrunched up because of the way she has her head on the edge of the bed.) Of course, we’ve seen many dogs over the years asleep with their tongues out. It’s always cute, but we’ve often wondered why they sleep with their tongues like this. In the case of those elderly ones missing teeth, i.e., Wilbur, it makes sense — nothing to hold the tongue back in with — but like many of the others, Sophie has a full set of teeth. Whatever the reason, it was working for her!
