    Dog's weird laying position.
    My 7 mo. Dog is always laying in the "frog" position, with his legs out so he literally looks like a frog. I have heard that this means he has healthy hips, and have also heard it is a sign of hip dysplasia-although he has no other symptoms of it. So what does it mean? Is he okay or should I take him to the Vet to get checked out?

    Honey, he is perfectly fine. Not all dogs lay this way but a lot do. All of mine have always splayed themselves out that way. So, your dogs hips are fine. Don't fret.

    I have known of dogs that laid that way and their X-rays were rated OFA good or better.
