Sometimes you realize that, completely by accident, you named your pet very aptly. When Cricket lies in the position below, we call it “Cricket Legs”.
Am I right (other than the fact that our Cricket is much cuter)? 🙂

Cricket is cuter than the insect, but I can see the resemblance! We had a cat that used to do that.
Ann Staub says
Dog Cricket is definitely much cuter!!! But I do see the resemblance! 🙂
Groovy Goldendoodles says
Great photo and PAWfect caption. Both Boys do this all day long!
Have you ever shared a photo? None of our larger dogs have ever done it!
Caren Gittleman says
hehehe good one!
Jen Gabbard says
Your cricket is sooo much cuter than any cricket I’ve seen around here.
And quieter too! Have you ever had a cricket get in your house? You can go nuts trying to find it so you can sleep! LOL
Tenacious Little Terrier says
Definitely cuter! Mr. N will hang out like that too.
Dogs N Pawz says
That is awesome but your Cricket is much, much cuter!
The Island Cats says
MOL! Very appropo!
I love that she’s living up to her name and bringing a whole new level of cute to the word cricket 🙂
LOL, that is so adorable! I love the touch of color you chose as well!
In corgis, we call that posing Froggin’ 🙂 Cricket is one of Jimmy’s nicknames because he’s so noisy.
And your your Cricket is WAY cuter than the bug!
Cricket is probably just as happy her name isn’t “Frog” – LOL!
Perfect cricket legs.
One of my coworkers call that the Superman pose.
Ha ha, that is a very apt name for it as well!
Bell Fur Zoo says
Oh yes she does look like a cricket. Matt lays like that too maybe Mom needs to change his name 😉
We all love to call our pets nicknames, so “Cricket” could be one of Matt’s nicknames! 🙂
De Hufford says
Cricket does live up to her name, but she is waaaaaay cuter!
Other than leg position, I see no resemblance between the two crickets, but it is fun to know how the name came about!
Jenna,Mark “HuskyCrazed” Drady says

Lexus lays in that position all the time, it’s so cute!
ღ husky hugz ღ frum our pack at Love is being owned by a husky!

Your Cricket is 1,000% cuter! Bentley lies like that when we return from our walks It is great for a belly cool-down. ☺
OMG That’s a riot!! Great start to my Sunday morning. 😀 And yes, Cricket is MUCH cuter!
Sand Spring Chesapeakes says
hahahaha that is great! love that you put the bug picture there too!
Oz the Terrier says
Oh my, I didn’t realize that position was the same as a cricket’s! BOL Cricket is aptly named for sure.
Hailey and Zaphod says
Those are cricket legs for sure. Our angel Gemini’s nickname was Cricket as well (for Jiminy Cricket).
Dolly the Doxie says
OMD that is so funny! Love Dolly
Callie, Shadow, and Ducky's Mom says
Yup, you’re right! On both counts – cricket legs and your Cricket is WAY CUTER than any old bug any time!! 🙂
As for what’s in a name? Shadow’s AKC registration name is Callie’s Shadow and it fits her perfectly! She has been following Callie around since the day we brought her home from the breeder’s house. She ADORES her big sister! Those times when Callie had her ACL surgeries, we could tell Shadow was “lost” without her. The adoration is mutual, but Callie is much more independent than Shadow. And Ducky? Well, we didn’t name her — one of the girls at the shelter did — but it fit her so well that we couldn’t think of any other name that fit her better.
That is so sweet that Shadow actually lives up to her AKC name! My hubby actually wanted to name Cricket after a beagle that his father had once, so it was purely coincidental that Cricket started laying like that, but too funny!
Ducky is such a cute name, I can see why you decided to keep it!
Brian Frum says
That looks darn cute and comfy Cricket!
karens cantlin says
I love that pose, Susie does that often too. I love watching her get into that pose too, stretch forward, stretch back, stretch out. I have to say much cuter than the cricket. We won’t debate which beagle is cuter, it would probably be a tie!
All beagles are cute, correct? 🙂
