Sometimes when my dog looks like it is a bad dream I will go pet him and wake him up, I know crazy right? But I don't want him to have nightmares :(

Yes, they do. I guess your dog was having a bad dream.

I think she was because I was talking to her softly to try to wake her and when she woke up she crawled in my lap and clung to me I felt so bad

My dog dreams!! She makes this weird sound like you were describing. The first few times I heard it I woke her up because it scared me. Now, I just laugh at her. She also
"twitches" when she makes those sounds. She usually does it when she's sleeping on her back with her paws in the air. Soooooo funny.

Mine dream all the time. He'll bark more in his sleep than he does when he is awake! lol He'll run in his sleep too. Occasionally he will whimper, when he has a dream like that I just gently pet him and tell it is ok. Sometimes he'll half bark and it will sound like the Three Stooges whoop whoop noise. The first time he did that I was laughing so hard I woke him up!

They dream of their food. Their fight with other dogs. When their belly is full they generally don't dream much though they feel sleepy more.

I think so! Mine do it all the time. Barks, run, bites, licks, kicks etc... I think it means the animal is real comfortable with its surroundings.

My pit/boxer does it all the time, she shakes a lot, almost like convulsions! She's had parvo before, someone told me that dogs shake a whimper in their sleep after having the disease. I give her salmon oil tabs, it's helping.
