Rumble / Dogs & PuppiesA heartwarming video has emerged featuring one exhausted puppy struggling to stay awake, but eventually dozes off to dreamland. Dixie Birdstone had a sleepless night so she kept on nodding off in her owner's lap. How funny is that?

Puppies, like human babies, need plenty of rest for their development. Like a human teenager, they can also sleep for up to 18 hours a day. Unlike their human counterparts, pups can sleep anywhere, any place, and any time. This adorable pup can’t stay awake and she really tries not to fall off owner’s lap! Hilarious!

After a hard night out, this sleepy pup can barely keep her eyes open and falls asleep sitting up. Watch her as she battles to keep her poor little eyes open. She’s sooo tired! She serves as a real proof that there are times when you are so exhausted that you can literally fall asleep everywhere and anywhere, and she dozes off in the cutest way possible!

Dogs have the same sleep patterns as humans. When dogs fall asleep, they first enter the slow wave or quiet phase of sleep. They lie still, oblivious to their surroundings. Their breathing slows down, their blood pressure and body temperature drop, and their heart rate decreases. Time for a nap little buddy!

Sometimes we have days when we feel so tired that the only thing we think about is that nap that we are going to take when we get home! Well, this precious video shows one exhausted puppy struggling to stay awake, but eventually falling asleep while sitting up in owner’s lap! Cuteness overload!

Get ready to start yawning and aww-ing at the very same time! Can we just all agree that the way this little ball of fur sits like a human in the lap is simply adorable? In fact, it is the epitome of adorableness! Pups can sleep anywhere, any place, any time! And maybe any position? Like this pooch that dozes off while sitting up in owner’s lap? Simply adorable, please don’t wake her up!
