Puppy sleeps with legs beind her and to the side

My new pup sleeps with her legs out to the sides and behind her. Both her parents passed Penn Hip with flying colors. This isn't a sign of anything bad is it? She sleeps like that almost all the time. Of course she is not even 9 weeks old yet. I am just worried because she is my foundation bitch. Her fathers Penn Hip was better than almost any other Dogue De Bordeaux tested though. Please tell me I am an over protective mommy?!?!? LOL!

Looks like she is spread-eagled? or a long furry Dachshund? Both of mine did that too - stopped at about 12 weeks?

Dakota used to do that. His Prelims just came back yesterday marked "good".

I have found that wherever I go, the stupidest drivers in the world have followed me there!

This is how she sleeps. She is now 8 weeks and 5 days old, but she slept this way at the breeders too or with them straight out in back and crossed! LOL! I guess I won't worry too much! Thanks.

Karlo did it too, for a puppy while. Not lately-it was cute while it lasted.
She is adorable, what is her name?

Re: Puppy sleeps with legs beind her and to the side

HaHa they are cute when they do it. Her name is officially Ivy Bordeaux's Roly Poly Princess Kiyoko...pronounced "key-oko" it means happy child and Roly Poly was her name at the breeder since she weighted 28 ounces at birth! Ouchy mama! Her call name is Kiyoko. I can't wait for her to grow up...but want to fight her growing up since pups are so darn cute...although right now she is chewing everything! LOL!

Re: Puppy sleeps with legs beind her and to the side

The Dam's first litter was 8 and her second...this one was 3. They average 6 to 12, but since the 3 in the last little were so big...28 ounces, 24 ounces, and 18 ounces, there wasn't room! LOL! Her first litter the average pup was about 16-18 ounces. Kiyoko's sire is about 160 pounds and the dam is about 140 pounds, so we are probably looking at about 150 pounds full grown. The biggest from the last litter is male and is now about 165 pounds. She had 1 surviving female and 5 surviving males from the last litter, the largest was actually crushed at birth with it being her first litter and the smallest faded at a day old. Thankfully, these three large pups made it okay. They were all female.

I am thinking when I do breed her the kennel name will reflect her name. Roly Poly Bordeaux's. I am so excited, but yet so worried that she won't pass all of her health tests. I worry so much. There is nothing in 7 generations of pedigree to back up my worries. But of course she is my baby and mom's worry.

Re: Puppy sleeps with legs beind her and to the side

Roly poly is probably why, that big happy puppy tummy is in the way of getting comfortable with her legs!

Morgan used to do some strange things with her legs when she was a pup. She OFAd fair but at 8 the worst it's gotten is a little arthritis in her hips and a slight wiggle if she's been fast walking for a few miles.
