Talking Point: What do dogs dream about?

No better dog than ol’ Mushroom

I had a great dog named Mushroom for 17 years. (RIP, Mushy!) She was a schnauzer poodle mix.

Some years ago, she woke up and ran straight outside and began methodically digging around the back yard, running from one spot to the next– not a normal thing for Mushroom. It looked to us like she was digging for a bone. But she had not buried one.

We theorized that maybe she dreamed she had buried some tasty bones in the backyard and went to retrieve them upon awakening.

  1. I think my dog runs – his legs move – and he makes sounds, but not barks and it seems like whatever he’s dreaming, it’s action packed. He’s usually either awake and active, or asleep so the dreams must be engaging. I wish I could sleep so well.

  2. I don’t have a story, but Mushroom reminds me of Sam, our affenpinscher we adopted through a local rescue. He brought such joy and we miss him so much. I’m sorry for your loss.
