Angel will be lying peacefully on my bed, then suddenly her tail will wag like crazy a few times, she'll shift position, then lie quiety for a while longer, then repeat the whole process. None of my other dogs do this: anyone have any idea what it means?

Sounds like what my legs do sometimes when I am trying to get to sleep. Is there a restless tail syndrome?

Is she sleeping when she does this? My dog will make different noises, wag her tail and even move her feet as if she is running at times when she is sleeping. Our other dog will make noises and move her feet but doesn't do any tail wagging.

Oppie, our Lab, does this - starts wagging his tail when he's resting, for no apparent reason. But in his case, he doesn't change position. We figure he's just a happy dog.:-)

I've always understood that dogs drop into REM sleep very quickly. I therefore believe that your pet is dreaming happily of walkies in the morning or that *** down the road etc. When my dog Charlie was dying of cancer and had snapped both his crutiate ligaments, it made me feel SO good to hear his tail slapping on the floor beside my bed then, I too could go to sleep feeling more relaxed.
My best wishes to you both

Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals, "love" them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.

Ok, thanks, everyone. She's resting, probably sleeping, when she does this, so I'm going to assume that she's having happy dreams. Cool! She is definitely a happy dog, probably one of the happiest I've ever met. I'd like to take credit for it but she came to me this way :-).
