The Dallas Cowboys sleep around every night, and that can be exhausting.
So it comes as no surprise that the team has a new mascot: the Sleep Talking Dog.
The Dallas Cowboys’ Sleep Talking Dogs are named for the famous movie The Shining, which stars Stephen King.
Sleep Talking Dogs were originally created by artist Steve DeGraw and debuted at the 2012 Pro Bowl in Miami, according to the Dallas Morning News.
DeGrow’s work has also appeared on the walls of the team’s practice facility.
They have since made their way into the team store, and have appeared on jerseys and stickers.
DeGs newest pup, Sleep Talking Puppy, debuted last week at the Pro Bowl.
“It’s a new thing that I’ve been doing, it’s been very cool,” DeGrew told the newspaper.
I love sleeping around.
I have the dog and the sleep talk.
I feel really good about it.”
The Dallas Mavericks’ Sleep Walking Dogs are called Sleep Dogs.

But since DeGroy’s creation, he says he’s gotten more requests than ever before.
“I have a lot of friends who live in the city of Dallas and want me to do the dogs,” DeGs said.
“I’ve been getting a lot more requests for them.
I get them by email every week.”
Sleep Talking Puppies are made of plush dog and cat ears, with a black tongue and nose.
The dog wears a face mask and a hoodie.
Sleep Talking Cats are made out of cats’ tails, with eyes and ears that are made from fabric.
