Sophie snores so loud you can hear it downstairs in our basement apartment - luckily my daughter lives there so she's used to it!

Murphy snores. Sometimes its just quiet snores, but normally around 4 or 5 a.m he's really loud. I give him a little poke to wake him up, normally have to do the same to the o/h :badgrin:
They both just roll over, although sometimes Murphy rolls over and sticks a paw in my face for my troubles :?

LOL! Bentley snores so loud you'd swear there was a 200 lb. man in the room sawing logs! I wonder if it's a Cavalier thing?! I've never had a dog that snores so much, and I must admit it's rather cute, especially if he is sprawled out on his back!

They snore because their muzzles are shorter than is actually natural in a dog -- eg they have been bred to be short-muzzled (brachycephalic). This affects their soft palate and their nasal passages and indeed, the whole structure of the front of their skulls. It has a couple of results -- the cavalier 'snort' where they seem to gasp for breath (usually easy to stop by gently covering nostrils and tilting the dog's head downward), and snoring, though cavaliers that are overweight will definitely snore more. There unfortunately can be some serious health complications because of this, too, as there can be for all short or flat faced breeds, though these are fairly rare in cavaliers, which aren't as extreme as pugs, chins or Charlies or similar breeds with no muzzle at all!

I have one dog who snored unbearably loudly when I got her from the pound and she was obese. After losing a third of her weight, she stopped snoring entirely. She has started again after a stint in kennels where she seems to have snuck a few extra treats! :lol: And is again on diet rations. 8)

Both Cavaliers snore like grown men, and I think the shihtzu learned it from them (she also purrs). Wallis is overweight, Tibby is tiny.
