Default Does your dog sleep with his/her butt near your face?

Spike loves to cuddle but she always likes to sleep flush against me and her butt is always aim towards my face while her head is next to my feet. Is that normal? I seem to remember my other dogs in the past (Jamie and Bart) didn't do that. Instead they would lie flush against me with their head next to or on my chest and sigh deeply before falling asleep.

Savannah most often cuddles with her head next to me or on my chest. However when she goes to sleep for the night she curls up at the foot of them. Sometimes she ends up moving throughout the night most often when I wake up her face is closest to me, but there have been times where her butt was aimed in my direction lol.

My Dad's Chihuahua on the other hand ALWAYS sleeps with his butt toward my Dad's face.

Sometimes, usually he likes to stare at me. The cat is more likely to have her butt in my face---not a pretty site!

Hmmmmm...can't say that they do. Lizette curls up in a ball and you can't tell which end is which. Don't know how she gets into such a tiny ball.

Jett always sleeps with his head facing me. I wake up and look into those adoring eyes and forget all the wrong he has done.

Cooper on the other hand. Starts off with his head on my shoulder or my neck cuz I give him goodnight snuggles. Then he sleeps with his head towards the window (which means his butt is towards me). I actually think he does this because he's deaf and can't hear if an "intruder" comes so wants to keep an eye on me and protect me. Ok...probably not, but I like to think that way.

Spike typically likes to sleep across the bed, dead smack in the middle too. But if she has to lie against one of us, she always points her butt to the person's face. I just don't get why she does that.

Lexie sleeps right beside me. I will rub her belly untill either she falls asleep or I do.
She moves around alot, and usually whacks me in the face with a paw. grrrr
Brook sleeps at the foot of the bed..keeping my feet warm
Then theres the cat .. usually in my face on the pillow. I need a bigger bed.

My dogs don't sleep with me so I cannot answer that. On the very rare occassion they are allowed up for a cuddle, Em will curl up at the foot of the bed and Clipse and Ramone while lie squished up against us with their heads closest to our heads.
The cats mostly stay at the foot of the bed.

aspen loves to sleep perpendicular to me with his head toward my face but gaia always orients herself to face the door in the room. so that means yes i get the business end near my head. guard dog that she is she likes to watch the door for anyone dumb enough to intrude.

Spike is no guard dog but she does like to face the door when she sleeps. But I think I figured out why she likes to sleep with her butt towards me. The heating vent is on the wall at the foot of the bed, so she gets nice warm (or cold) air on her face when she lies that way. Unfortunately she is also prone to smell gassy butt so it sucks for those of us who cuddles with her. And she does love to cuddle.
