Our new puppy will sometimes cry and whimper while sleeping and have a little bit of convulsions too, is that normal for puppies to do while sleeping?

Hi alexadry, Wow, thank you so much! How interesting and makes a lot of sense. I appreciate your great answer. Well, his neural and motor coordination development must be dong quite well!
Thanks so much dear Genna. Yes, he does a lot of twitching of sorts, which is concerning, but I guess normal. He is a sweetie. He likes to crawl under our bed and lay on top of the vent to get warm. So the warm water jar might be the ticket. Hugs
Thanks so much, Bob, for answering! Yes, it would be so interesting as to what they are actually dreaming about for sure, especially at such a young age. Have a great weekend.
Hi grand old lady, Oh, I just love your dog's name, how precious! Well, both of your dogs' names are great! That is too funny about the coo sound. Yes, the convulsions have subsided, but I will keep watch. Thank you so much for answering!
Oh, thank you so much for the heads up. I think the suggestion was for a glass jar of hot water wrapped in something and not a bottle. I will be sure do so if it keeps up.
Hi CraftytotheCore, oh, yes, I remember that too. I cannot remember the name of the bear. I have heard to place an old tick tock clock next to them so they can hear it ticking and maybe remind them of their mother's heartbeat?
Thank you so much Diana Lee. From all the answers, it sounds normal, but if it gets worse, I will sure check with the vet. Have a great weekend!
Thanks Jackie, yes, I am sure he is missing his siblings. They had separated them from the mother, but he was still with his siblings. He and George are making good friends and have slept in the recliner together LOL. That is a great idea! Hugs.
If it is wrapped in something warm it will not get him cold when it cools. We always did this with new pups as long as I can remember. Kittens too. Actually all they are trying to do is con their way in your bed! lol
Yes, LOL, he hops up in an effort to get on the bed. Last night we saw him flop down on George, our cat, like a rug, and George allowed him, and he slept away! LOL So, he had his warm body. They both love getting in the recliner with my hubby.
Thank you so much, catgypsy, he has some stuffed toys to sleep with too. But the warm water sounds like a good idea. Sometimes, it seems like he is having a nightmare and convulsions, but I hope it is normal.
Hi VVanNess, oh good, that makes me feel much better! Thank you for sharing that with me. Yes, this puppy sometimes sounds like a little pot belly pig with his snorting. LOL Have a great weekend.
Cody has made a variety of animal sounds. Lol So far we normally hear pig sounds, but we've even heard him moo. Lol
LOL, I am waiting on that too LOL
