Do we have an amphibian or a dog?

This is my first Havanese Dog. Did I get a frog instead of a puppy? Chico is always laying like a frog with all four legs sticking out unlike our previous poodles and border collies. I have seen this before with bully type dogs who are overheated. Please tell me he is normal and just very cute.

A lot of Havs do it. You will find all kinds of things that Havs do differently than other dogs. They are quite unique.

Hey DeeJay,
From a fellow "newbie", I recently found out this is completely normal for a Hav. One of the many cute little quirks that make them so darn addicting! Miley prefers to lay this way...it still makes us laugh.

Renee, Miley, & Copper too!

Only my Lily sits like that - she loves to spread out as far as she can. Her favorite time to do it is when we are on a walk, she will run onto lawns into the shade and spread out to cool off.

Karen, now is that Brady ON your table?? Boy is he a spoiled boy!!

Annabelle lies around in the froggy position when taking lazy time but when she is sound asleep she lies on her back with all four legs straight up in the air, These dogs are adorable!!
