heavy breathing

Recommended Posts

So, when I put my hand on her neck gently, as she's just borderline sleeping, she'll start making 'heavy breathing' noises and gently fall asleep. Kind of like a cat purring. My wife calls it the "hand of dad" effect -- and it's really sweet -- she's done that since she was tiny pup; but I haven't seen any mention of dogs 'purring' -- she's clearly super relaxed and it's clearly a happy noise, but I never heard of it!

Gratuitous pic of the victim:

a friends lab would fall asleep alongside him in the hide before first light goose shooting    both made a contend sound  and then     I couldn't tell who was snoring louder  🤣

My lab does it sort like a sigh and a groan when he lays on my hand or feet to sleep 

if I’m laid on sofa his beds next to me and I get a paw until I put my arm down for him to lay on

 

he also growls a small throaty growl when you give him a rub when he’s really comfy 

it sounds really threatening but it’s actually him really content  ( yes he’s thick as mince)

My yellow lab makes noises when pampered in a relaxed state, if I ask her what she has to say she will  mostly talk back to receive more fuss. The other dog doesn't do a thing.

Mine has a sound like a very gentle growl when he is anticipating something good - maybe a walk but mostly food - he is a lab after all... :-)
