This Puppy That Only Sleeps On Her Back Is All Of Us After A Long Week

Amy Pilkington 2 Jun 2019

The internet is awash with doggos of all shapes and sizes. Some are just cute, others are being rescued or rescuing others, but none have ever quite captured our hearts the way Paningning the shih tzu has.

If Grumpy Cat perfectly encapsulated that particular human mood, then Paningning is how everyone feels when office hours finally end on Friday.

Now, I will fully admit to a bias when I say that shih tzu's are the cutest pupperinos.

That's because as I write this my own shih tzu is licking the back of my ear.

However, despite my adoration of my personal pupper, Paningning's belly takes the cuteness cake.

According to her human, Janess Cua, Paningning has just always slept that way.

Thinking it was cute — UNDERSTATEMENT — Cua posted the photos on a Facebook group for dog lovers in the Philippines and that belly went viral.

I mean, look at that belly!

The fact that her little puppy tail is the same length as her back legs just adds to the effect.

Oh, and little Paningning also has an incredible underbite smile.

She's got almost 60,000 followers on Instagram after a fan created her an account. Later, that fan passed it onto Cua so that she could keep sharing more pics.

Cua says that while it's Paningning's preferred sleeping pose that made her famous, she's actually quite lively and playful.

And naughty.

Which sounds about right for a shih tzu, frankly.

Paningning also does the cute twitchy, dreaming thing in her sleep.

I didn't see anything about whether or not she snores, but I'm willing to be she does.

I think my favorite version of her is this video where she's just chilling in front of a fan.

Paningning is really living her best life.
