I was wondering if anybody elses Rattie growls when sleeping and is disturbed. It seems when Ozzy is asleep and something bumps him he starts growling. Is this true Rattie or is it just Ozzy.

Lilly will do this from time to time. She can get very guarded over her favorite chair. What we have started doing is using treats to wake her up, let her smell it then when she wakes up we give her a treat and it makes it a good experience.

OMG! My rat terrier always growls at me when I move her when she's sleeping or touch her lol. Or if the other dogs jump up where she's sleeping she will snap at them and growl. But other than that she's the cutest thing EVER! :O)

Ally will be sound asleep under the covers and if the cat jumps on up the bed or on her she starts growling and grumbling. Sometimes she will come flying out from under the covers growling. The first time she did it scared me to death in the middle of the night, but now I'm used to it.
