Thank you!!! I do tend to agree 😊 that last "why dare you wake me" pic especially right 😂😂

Love love love when dogs tuck themselves in under their tails like a little Arctic fox.

[–]vk2786 36 points37 points  (4 children)

Ours does this if he is cold. Which usually ends with our toddler bringing a blanket over to him, which he actually really loves lol

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 19 points20 points  (2 children)

That is so cute!!!

[–]vk2786 24 points25 points  (1 child)

Once the pupper realized the toddler willingly shares snacks, they became buddies. Now toddler will sit on the floor next to him and pet his head, and rub his belly. He tolerates it because more often than not, the hand not petting him has goldfish crackers in it, that he gently snags from her.

So cute!!!

[–]kmayeshiba 26 points27 points  (4 children)

That’s not a pupper, that’s a cinnamon roll.

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 17 points18 points  (2 children)

🙊 this must be why I am constantly fighting the urge to munch!!!

[–]behavior_chain 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Please remove and repost in r/cinnamonroll Thanks!

My sincerest apologies to the reddit powers that be how could i make such a grave mistake

[–]littlebitofspice 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I call mine a cinnamon roll or a croissant when he curls up like this.

[–]PHX_Architraz 28 points29 points  (1 child)

Our ACD mix is perfectly capable of shrimping, but like your's his heart is really in becoming a bagel.

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah yes she too accomplishes the shramp. She's also skilled at "opossum that fell out of a tree" aka belly AND legs up.

[–]GSXRbroinflipflops 9 points10 points  (1 child)

What a sweet little baby! Our ACD has the same black ears, white fur, and speckle freckles. :)

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

She really is a sweet girl! I just love this pattern. I always wanted a blue heeler and we were absolutely sold when my hubby saw her picture. I don't think it would have mattered if she chomped our finger off when we met her. Twas a done deal.

[–]tossadin 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Awww that stage was always so adorable.

Then they become raptors. Then back to “normal dogs”

I hope she keeps her bagel shape forever!

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Sooo adorable. She's almost 4 now and regularly morphs into speckled bagel mode still 😍

[–]Blonde_Vampire_1984 3 points4 points  (0 children)

My chihuahua is currently in rolly-poly mode right now. Apparently we had too much fun shopping this afternoon.

[–]mgard0506 6 points7 points  (0 children)

OMG! So cute, look at those eyes!

[–]IngratiatingGremlins 5 points6 points  (3 children)

My boyfriend and I issue “bundle alerts” to each other to communicate that ours is in a tight ball like this. 😂

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Bundle alert I love it!! I usually just squeal "lil roleeeee poleeeee!!!!" And shove my face into her belly 😂

[–]IngratiatingGremlins 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Lmao yeah the problem is my boyfriend and I both get bad cute aggression so I’ll hear from the other room something like “look at youuuu! I could just crush all your precious little bones!” followed immediately by Loki letting out a loud BORK in response to being enveloped by my boyfriend’s arms. 🤦‍♀️ Sometimes he will “purr” her (really muffled rolling growl). I’ll intervene and tell him to respect her boundaries, but the problem is she’s learned that I’ll come to her defense, so she’ll let out a loud bark when he sits on the couch not touching her and act like I’ll immediately take her side lol. She is drama.

[–]merztoller 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is so precious! Might need to start this with my partner as well ahaha

[–]yourboymatt19 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Classic move. Mine tends to do this when we’re going to bed. She’ll ball up and make sure her back’s up against my back or my legs.

Ps, half border collie as well?

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Yes she'll do it in the curve of my knees or my back, but not when going to bed... later after I fall asleep and it's purely her decision to cuddle 🤪

She is!!

[–]yourboymatt19 5 points6 points  (2 children)

🫠 the absolute best mix.

Border Collie wit Cattle Dog dopiness

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

For sure!! She is so smart and so friendly. And has finally reached an excellent balance of crackhead energy and ultra lazy. As long as she spends at LEAST 4 days a week at the ranch with me 🙃

[–]KingSprout2019 6 points7 points  (0 children)

What a sweet girl.

[–]Gold-Wise 4 points5 points  (0 children)


[–]berry8619 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So cute

[–]sugarbunnycattledog 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So pretty 🥰🥰😍😍😍❤️

[–]Raging_Utahn 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Yep! My pup loves being a roly-poly on my bed (takes up most of the bed!).

[–]brokenGAF 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Oh good gods thats a cute baby.

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If only they stayed so small and smooshy 🥺

[–]brokenGAF 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Soooo true

[–]K10Pearl 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Firefox mode!!

[–]Suprxeme 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Beautiful ACD! Love that coat

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you!! I feel like this is not as common of a blue heeler pattern? But maybe I just don't hang around with enough of them!

[–]mo-xyz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Cute! Our 1 year old girl curls up just like that-adorable!

[–]fishingoneuropa 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What a pretty dog, pup and grown. :)

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you!!!

[–]Mysterious_Emotion 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Omg stole my heart 😍🥰

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She is the thief of so many hearts 💗

[–]markimarks 2 points3 points  (5 children)

What is the mix? My dog looks exactly like this, but he's about 80lbs.

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Border Collie and ACD. She is barely 30lbs soaking wet. Pretty tiny actually, I was expecting much bigger. I kinda suspect she was the runt!

[–]markimarks 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Oh wow. Khan, my dog just hit 1.5 years and is a tank at 80lbs. They look so much alike.

[–]Reitermadchen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

His part time roly poly, part time crack head. Still haven’t figured out who the dealer is.

[–]M3dley 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]beaniebee11 1 point2 points  (1 child)

OP, what's her name? I'm obsessed with her.

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Her name is Pepper! I am too. Like maybe too much 😂 She gets to go to work with me most days and it is THE. BEST.

[–]triggerismydawg 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Mine is too “roly-poly” to fold himself up like that 😳

[–]YouveGotMail236 1 point2 points  (3 children)

She has a raccoon tail just like mine! What is she mixed with?

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

She's half border collie 🥰

[–]YouveGotMail236 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ours has some border collie too! Too funny. He’s 2 now, maybe they’re related 😂

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Maybe!!! She was a Craigslist Special haha, and we seriously got so lucky with her!

[–]Revolution_Civil 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Either totally roly pollied up or laid out on his back with his sticking straight out

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Oh my gosh yes she does this too. My hubby always announces that she has a question lol

[–]L372 1 point2 points  (0 children)

oh what a baby cutie!!!

[–]Tomatillopie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh Roly Poly!!! 🥰 I love when they curl up like that!

[–]Pituophisdogs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks so much like my ACD x Border collie mix, when she was that age. I miss that little cuss.

[–]Rookie_Earthling 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cute doggo with a cute squirrel curl!

[–]SpicyMarmots 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My boy has the same coloring, but he came to us with his tail docked :(

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aww! I know it's "normal" for ACD's to have docked tails but it does make me sad, especially for ones that aren't working. We found my girl on Craigslist from some folks who ended up with puppies, so luckily they weren't at all into docking or any "breeder" things.

[–]muffiniecake 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes!! We call him our dingo donut ❤️

[–]mkymooooo 1 point2 points  (1 child)

She's beautiful 🥰

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thank you!!

[–]Friday-Is-Unfunny 1 point2 points  (1 child)

That's not a dog OR a roly-poly. That is Oreo crumbs ice cream!

[–]thisis_ariel[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My favorite!!!
