    Default Sleeping with eyes open?

    Just curious if anyone else's bully does this? Not gonna lie- it's a bit creepy lol. My daughter was very concerned when she first noticed and thought something was wrong. I know it reminded her of seeing Flora when she passed

    Bluebelle has her eyes slightly open often- particularly when she's sleeping on her side. Not sure if it will continue forever or what? We're getting more used to it.

    Just wondering how common this is. I don't remember any of our other Bulldogs doing it.
    Current Bulldogs: Bluebelle (5.19.16)
    Past bulldogs always in my heart: Marigold, Daisy & little Flora

    I wouldn't worry. Nyala has less wrinkles and times they dont shut completely. Ive seen a human his eyes didn't shut when he was sleeping. Now that's scary stuff. Lol

    Smedley would do this. He'd even be sitting up, eyes wide open, and completely asleep. A waving hand in front of his face would get no reaction whatsoever. Very strange...



    Smedley and Donna snoozing...

    Yep, Tyson sleeps like that sometimes, eyes semi-open, yet snoring! LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    Dozer does this sometimes, just enough to see some of the white of his eyes.

    Yes, my bully does this sometimes... & when he does it along with dreaming you can see his eyes dart around and feet move a little like he's "chasing rabbits," sometimes with a little noise. Very frightening indeed!
    Who farted?
