Upward-Facing Dog

When my dog Comang is at his most comfortable, he likes to flip onto his back. (Please excuse the quality of these pictures, as most of them were taken with camera phones.)

He has no shame, that one, fully spreading and baring his genitals for all to see.

Sometimes I’ll even join him… (but in a more modest manner)

Other times I’ll come home to see what he’s really been doing the entire time I was gone.

He usually ignores the TV, but we like to think that he quite enjoys it in his upside-down position, as his favorite place to stretch out is on the couch in front of the boob tube.

Although my family’s had several dogs over the years, none of them has done this so we think it’s hilarious. I thought Comang was just a weirdo until friends informed me that their dogs do this too. I’ve also discovered sites like Upside Down Dogs that prove there are plenty of weirdos out there like him.

Do your dogs like to lie on their backs?

  1. The pic of your doggie boozing it up made me laugh so hard!

    I’m with Lizzie! He seriously needs to be submitted in some funny doggy pose contest or something! That pic is worth millions! :) Welcome back GIH! You were dearly missed! I even thought my reader was messed up (as if google can mess up xP)

  3. I think I may need to go pose our little pup Colby like that hilarious shot above now! Colby loves laying on his back too…he looks ridiculous sometimes because he lies on his back smooshed between his big pillow bed and the wall of his crate :)

  4. My cat does the same thing. Once, she did it in front of the TV while my husband was playing Grand Theft Auto and it looked like she’d been gunned down by Niko Bellic. It was kind of amazing.
    P.S. Missed you around the internets! Happy you’re back! :)

    my dog only shows his belly when he wants a belly rub. other than that, he doesn’t normally flip over on his back. usually he’s curled up into a little ball, that’s his favorite position!

    The best part is that when he’s in this position, he lets us do whatever we want to him, and he’ll keep sleeping! Hence the beer and remote control picture…it took forever to set up because the beer can kept rolling off of him but Comang hardly moved during the entire process!
