*Hello from Sid and the Critique Club*

A cute portrait that meets this open challenge.

A lovely engaging image of your pet doing what they seem to do a lot of, though your clever title conjures up visions of the dog chasing and catching cats in his dreamy slumbers. A good title is, I think, an essential element of the image and what the photographer had in mind when creating the image and is helpful to tell the viewer more about the image as a whole, so thanks for that.

I do like the image as a whole, I like the shallow DOF which enables us to focus on his head with his body in nice soft focus. What I am not so keen is the harshness of the light, it is forming a contrast on his ear that is too intense for the rest of this lovely peaceful soft light that enhances his fur, this small patch I'm afraid, does not, for me it detracts from the image as a whole.

I'm sorry you didn't get any comments during the challenge, I hope this helps, Sid
