Bella is a 6 month old Bulldog. She runs, she destroys, she bites, she plays for about half an hour, then it’s time to recharge the batteries.

She was already on the fake leather couch, she turned and fell asleep in 5 seconds. She snores a little bit in her sleep. I don’t mind when dogs snore. It’s not the hard snore of us humans. It’s a more muted snore.

I took a few more photos when she was sleeping and that was the end of the session. I didn’t have the heart to wake her up. And usually the photos of tired dogs that want to go to sleep never turn out to be good photos.
