My Facebook went to the dogs on Sunday, Sept. 3.
It was ama-zzzzz-ing.
It all started with this Facebook post about Tilly, our 4-year-old basset hound who lives, and sleeps a lot, in Gulfport, Mississippi.
I included this message with the post: “I bet our dog can outsleep your dog. Feel free to share a photo of your napper, and I’ll publish the pictures in a new blog post.”
The post was written on my blog and was shared on my own Facebook page and The Wonderful World of Basset Hounds Facebook page.
I heard from my daughter, my brother, a cousin, a cousin’s wife, old friends and new strangers.
I received more than 40 photos of great-looking dogs in funny sleeping positions, and most of the pictures included clever comments from their owners.
For this post, I embedded photos I received on my Facebook page and I made screen grabs from the basset hounds Facebook page.
