Name change iminent for puppy - we might change it to Bailley (depending on vote from kids)

But my real question is "do they dream" - I am guessing they do - "he" is quite happily sleeping on my lap and reckon by his movements he is dreaming.

I really believe that they do. I have seen our dog's feet go like crazy like they are running in their sleep and I have also seen them bark in their sleep. The barks are a bit quiet, but barks none the less.

Same here, I've seen Dylan running and barking in his sleep!

Monty has had the odd running and yipping dream and has been known to give a full blooded howl; something he's never done when awake. Now he is 12, he dreams a lot and sometimes wakes me, in the night, as he's running so fast that he kicks me hard.

I haven't noticed Barkley doing it, but when I had cockers they would "run" and whimper in their sleep. I called it "chasing bunnies." :D

Definitely! Willow runs and whimpers and barks in her sleep, and actually "sucks" in her sleep as well - we think she's dreaming of her mommy! :)

LOL. In Annie's case we call it chasing squirrels, since that's her prey of choice. I absolutely believe that dogs dream. Annie's paws twitch and she sometimes makes little noises too -- not to mention the snoring. ;)

The first time we got candi, i remember my partner was worried when she was sleeping, the wee noises from her then the kicking of her wee legs. I told him that was her dreaming, and like others i also say chasing bunnies. He couldn't get over how she is so alike to a baby. More so when she tries to pull her wee blanket over her when she's in bed and snuggles up to her wee teddy. :-p
