Dogs Dream About Their Owners And The Internet Is Sobbing

Do you ever wonder what your dog dreams about when you say goodnight to him, or her?

I am the proud Mama of two sweet puppies, a little girl and a little boy. They are twins.

I know when I tuck my little munchkins in every night — YES, I tuck them into their beds because they are endlessly spoiled (as they should be) and complete divas — I wonder what they're dreaming about throughout the night.

Do they have visions of an endless supply of Milk Bones?

Does my girl puppy dream about chilling with bae next door? Real talk: The boy dog next door is actually her boyfriend. They're exclusive.

Does my boy puppy plot what mischief he's going to cause the next day?

What goes through their cute little heads once they hit the pillows?!

No joke -- this is actually how my baby girl sleeps. WHAT IS SHE DREAMING ABOUT THOUGH?!


We finally have answers.

People had a Q&A with Clinical and Evolutionary Psychologist and teacher at Harvard Medical School Dr. Deirdre Barrett about how a dog's dreams compare to that of a human's.

Barrett said,

Humans dream about the same things they're interested in by day, though more visually and less logically. There's no reason to think animals are any different. Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it's likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you.

IDK about all of you, but this insanely adorable news makes me want to snuggle with my puppies right now.

Could their dreams get ANY CUTER THAN THIS?! Even the thought of my puppies dreaming about annoying me warms my heart.

Dogs dream about their owners. So basically, your dog is probably thinking about you all the dang TIME.

According to Buzzfeed, once this news hit Twitter, people could not EVEN handle it.

Seriously, this dog owner is crying, he's so touched.


And look at his dog all curled up sleeping! You just KNOW what that doggy is dreaming about.

This tweet got over 60,000 retweets and more than 90,000 likes since it was posted on Monday.

People on Twitter joined in on the hype, sharing pictures of their sleeping dogs.
