Tessa is a big snorer & now we have the wooden floor in the lounge, it makes it 10 times louder. So much so that I have been woken many a time since.

Does anyone else have this with their labs?

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes we have a Snorer too.. SADIE.. not that I am pointing a finger.. or anything.. but yes she snores.. almost as loudly as my husband when he is really tired.. I'm wondering if it's seasonal allergies??? She seems to sneeze a bit much lately and snoring is quite loud sometimes.. the more tired she is.. it seems. She also whimpers in her sleep from time to time.. whine whine whine.. I generally just say something soothing to her.. she calms a bit after I do. She is in her crate when she snores, and she has a nice soft comfy pillow to sleep on.

I love to go for long walks, enjoy gardening and collecting cookbooks and watching cooking shows. In my youth I really enjoyed sports but that is now relagated to watching it on TV.

Abbey is the snorer in our family. Just before she turns in for the night there is this long sort of snort and then the flapping of the lips. A lot of the time when she is in a really deep sleep she snores very loudly then the squealing and whimpering sound. You can just tell by all the motions she makes that she is definitely chasing something. I usually do what Heather does and talk softly to her and she comes out of it.

Both of ours dogs snore. Usally when they are over tired. I actually think it is pretty cute. Maggie does the chasing thing too. I wonder if she ever catches it?

I haven't seen them do the chasing after something in their dreams before. I have with my dogs when growing up, Poodle and a yorkie.. so it's got to be a dog thing.. all three of mine are sleeping at my feet right now.. just snoozing.. it's so hot out today.. they've tired out quickly.. no snoring just happy breathing at the moment.. it's doggy naptime.. (kid naptime as well ----SIGH PEACE!!)

Tessa sneezes when she lays on her back. Especially if we're playing about.

Sasha is the snorer of the two. Toby talks in his sleep. Yep, he talks in his sleep. In the middle of a nap or at night you will hear this muffled (his mouth is still shut) woof or growl. When he was a pup (a smaller one that is) he would whimper when he was cutting his teeth and I would cuddle him close to me at night and he would calm down. They both like to chase things in their sleep. And last night I got a riot out of watching Toby sleeping. I have no idea what he was dreaming about but his nose was wiggling like crazy then his legs would twitch.

I wrote about a time, in my blog, where I was awake as my husband, Sasha and Toby were all asleep. My husband snores so loud that I usually use ear plugs, but this night I did not. I could not help but giggle to my self as Hami (my husband) and Sasha were snoring and Toby was sucking on his tongue, all rather loudly. Needles to say after my giggle was over........I put the ear plugs in.

Boris my male lab is a major snorer. Like you we have wooden floors nd my bedroom is above the room the 2 dogs sleep in. Luckily it does not bother me, but my wife is a different story.

Oh my gosh yes! It woke me up one night last week. I was hearing snoring really loud along with little puffs of breeze on my face. I opened my eyes and was looking right down Harley's nose! She had climbed up right beside me and was sleeping with her head on my pillow. Everytime she breathed out (after the loud snore) the air was puffing on my face.

I laughed so hard that I then woke HER up.

I also get a kick out of when she is chasing things in her sleep too. The whimpering and the little feet wiggling as she sleep runs is so cute.

I have 5 labs and a few of them snore. The loudest one is my 7 month old puppy Maggie. She also weighs over 50 lbs.

laugh.gif I have three dogs - a 14 year old dalmatian, a 7 year old mix Shepard/Husky and my new little furbaby, a 12 week old black lab. All three dogs sleep on the floor in my bedroom and they form quite the trio! One dog starts whimpering and whining in his sleep, then the other and then the other! Every night they fall asleep before I do so I can't help but giggle when I hear their "serenade"! It's almost as if they are singing me to sleep! Gotta love dogs!

I also forgot to add that I also have a cat that likes to sleep by my pillow. My husband says she purrs too loud and when I was away said he pushed her off the bed she was so loud. (Poor baby) So I have one snoring Husband, one very loud purring cat and two labs a dreaming all in our King size bed.


I usually just go for the ear plugs. By the way can ear plugs cause any damage with prolonged use? huh.gif
