Let sleeping dogs lie


There was a serious case of puppy love in the Stylist office today (13 September), when these irresistible snaps landed on our desks.

As if puppies weren't cute enough alone, these photos take their appeal to a whole new level by capturing them asleep in an array of sweet and hilarious positions.

In a pose that shouts "heartwarming," one light brown pup cuddles up to a teady bear for a snooze. Another snow white pooch is pictured asleep with his legs and ears splayed out in all different directions - as if preparing for flight. Yet another pup appears to lean on his paw in a basket as he drifts off to the land of (doggy) nod.

The adorable photos were uploaded to the blog uphaa.com under the title "10 Cute Animal Sleeping Positions" and have already taken their US audience by storm.

Prepare to be smitten yourself with a preview of some of the best photos, above and below.
