Oh, is that your shoe? Now it’s my bed

Animals have such different sleep expressions – sprawled out, flipped over, tucked in. Shena Dowdy (ZoiesMom), a seventh-grade math teacher, has a little Chihuahua named Zoie who likes to curl up in a ball when she sleeps.

Her bed of choice? Shoes! Pictured here, we see Zoie lounging in a Croc. “She was just walking around looking for a tight spot that she could fit in,” Dowdy tells PEOPLEPets.com. Zoie also likes to crawl inside of her sister’s Ugg boots!

The little dog, who has been with Dowdy for a year, “knows how to work those puppy dog eyes.” The Chihuahua is also feisty, playful, cuddly and nosy. One of her favorite things to do is to bury herself in piles of fluffy things – clothes, blankets and pillows. Zoie sure likes to be comfy!
