What’s better than a nap? A nap with pets!

My sister is in town this week for work so she stopped by my apartment to catch up. Instead, she mostly caught me catching up on some z’s with the pups. I couldn’t help myself! I saw how comfy Eko looked dozing in the sun, so I decided to close my eyes
My sister is in town this week for work so she stopped by my apartment to catch up. Instead, she mostly caught me catching up on some z’s with the pups. I couldn’t help myself! I saw how comfy Eko looked dozing in the sun, so I decided to close my eyes for just a second.

The “just a second” thing never works. I was out like a light and my sister got to document the formation of a dog pile

I think Penny was a bit confused because she’s usually the one snoring on the couch

But she happily joined right in. Dogs never need an invitation to nap

Eko nudged his way onto the couch and we happily napped the afternoon away

Somewhere in the middle of my nap, I awoke and thought “I really should get up.” Then I opened my eyes and saw Eko and Penny napping next to me. That was all the reassurance I needed to head back to dreamland!

There are few pleasures like taking an afternoon nap while your pets lazily doze with you.

As an added bonus, when you do get up, your pets have a heated pillow to enjoy

We are well-rested and ready to enjoy what promises to be a beautiful fall week here in Chicago. As the weather turns cool, if you find yourself in need of some R&R, I recommend you enlist the help of your pet- they’re like pillows and heated blankets all rolled into one!

  1. I like that too… but it’s a little uncomfy somtimes to have 83 lbs on my legs :o)

  2. Looks like some excellent napping going on there. Glad you are all rested and we hope you are ready for a fun filled week. Hugs and nose kisses

    nothing better than napping with the pups -they do keep you warm and comfy!

  4. Love that you got a break and a nap and were able to have someone else get it all on film!

    On the couch, Mom naps with the cats, but sometimes during the day, she lies down on the floor and naps with us since we aren’t allowed on the couch. Napping with a pet is definitely the way to go!

  6. I’m still working with Khoi on “come,” so when we’re outside and he starts to wander off, I’ll throw myself on the grass and lay down. He’s there in seconds and curled up under my arm and over my stomach. Seems to work better than treats! We could almost fall asleep, but then big sis Neeka shows up and hangs over us. It’s as if she’s telling us it’s play time, not nap time. Kill joy.

    You are so right. Bella, our new girl, is short, stocky and so warm. I haven’t told Cynthia yet, but I will probably use her as a warm blanket when the nights start getting cold.

    I like to be with momwithoutpaws, so I lay my head on her lap sometimes . SIgn .. it is Pawsleepy

    Around here, heated pillows are to be avoided until the middle of October.

  10. There’s no sleep like nap sleep! Back me up, Cupcake. Woof! I rest my case…..

    awesome – our Ziggy loves a sofa snuggle and they both enjoy some bed cuddles. They make their own beds look so darn comfortable too I’ve often contemplated snuggling up beside them!

  12. Three guys snoozing away……..not a care in the world (at least as long as the nap lasts!)……great photos….!!

    Pam and Sam

  13. When we lie on the floor for a little rest, Daisy always curls up on top of us, just like a real blanket. Makes for a nice, toasty nap with an extra cute, cuddly blanket!

  14. Oh I know how you feel! We all took a nice nap with the windows open this week end too 🙂

  15. I love napping with the pets. Wish I could do more of it.

  16. I think this should be a proverb/saying/adage or whatever.. let’s go with Pearl of Wisdom “There are few pleasures like taking an afternoon nap while your pets lazily doze with you”.
    🙂
