Buster, my 8 y.o. Chihuahua/Terrier mix, has just started doing something weird -- after sleeping under the covers on the bed for a short time, he gives a sharp bark, as if startled or frightened, then continues to growl until I wake him up. Has anyone ever seen this behavior before, or have any clue why it's happening? FYI, he has not experienced any trauma in the 7.5 years that I've had him.

If he were just dreaming, the same thing wouldn't happen several times a day for at least a week. I will check out sleep startle reflex. Thank you!
