Dolly, you are carrying this “falling asleep” business too far.

“I would like to present my toy poodle, Dolly, I love her to bits and she is so hilariously cute when she sleeps (and at all other times too!). It would be so amazing if you used any pictures of my sweet girl, since we have loved Cute Overload for several years (and religiously bought the page a day calendars haha)!” -Amy (human) and Dolly (poodle) (UK)



  1. Wow, that looks like a stiff neck waiting to happen! Dolly is quite a silly puppeh.

  2. That’s almost as good as some cats.

  3. Why is that dog school-bus yellow?

    I was going to ask that also. “I Am Curious Yellow???” (I never saw that film and have no idea what the title means and don’t want to know – really!) Maybe Amy could send an emai to CO to tell us about Dolly’s unique color – perhaps a fad amongst UK toy poodles?

  5. I don’t think she’s yellow. I could be wrong but I think it’s the lighting.

    I just have a hard time finding the dog in all that fur.

  6. The photo is taken without a flash. Tungsten light (lightbulbs) is yellow.

    Having said that, Dolly’s hooman should start taking pics for a “Dolly’s silly sleeping positions” book!! Woohoo! (Also, being a bit of an insomniac at times, I do envy anyone who can fall asleep any which way, like our friend Dolly here. :D)

  7. Falling asleep – you’re doing it right.

  8. Anyone else need a minute to be convinced that the picture was NOT turned sideways?

  9. Amy (Dolly's mama) says:

    Hi everyone!

    This is Amy, owner of Dolly 😀 I can confirm she is actually pure white, and the lighting was a bit rubbish when I took this picture of her! Here is another picture of her looking a bit more normal haha http://www.flickr.com/photos/dollymamalove/9602558944/

    She has always liked to fall asleep in strange places, and I always try to get a picture when she is looking particularly cute ^_^

    For those of you who would like to know a bit more about Dolly, she is almost 3 years old and currently 6 weeks pregnant with her first baby! So when her tiny mini-me makes an appearance I will send more pictures in 😀

    Glad you like my baby girl, and thanks CO for publishing a picture of her! ❤

  10. Showing my age…This was a Swedish soft porn film. There was a Curious, Blue and Curious, Red, also. They were soooo soft that nowadays they would be prime time cable.

  11. Dolly is just adorable! I’ve seen some cute sleeping positions by my own dogs & cats, but this is too cute!

  12. LOL, she is cute. Reminds me a little of when my little toy poodle Molly was a puppy. She would fall asleep in my arms and I would go to move her and she would literally hang there like a little rag doll. Such sweeties.
