Panting Dog - Take Two

Last week, we looked at a video of dog stress panting. This week, I got video of the same dog, my service dog Pico, demonstrating hot, tired panting. Notice how floppy the tongue is and the relaxed line of the head, ears and body. In this video, Pico is also lying down on her belly. In addition to being comfortable, particularly for a tired dog, dogs use lying down in this manner (as opposed to on their side) as a sign to others that it is time to slow down and calm things down. This is another sign that she's tired and ready to take a break.
