Pure bliss!

Good morning, or afternoon, or even night depending on when you’re reading this. Odds are you might be feeling a little sleepy regardless of the time. It’s a known fact that we are a country of insomniacs running around on too little sleep taking care of all the ‘shoulds’. That’s probably the one thing that separates us most from animals; we run on conscience and they run on pure instinct. That’s what why they are so well rested and …happy.

With that in mind, we bring you a little reminder to rely on your own animal instinct from time and time and restore yourself. I mean when is the last time your puppy stayed awake to clean the last dish or finish the final report? Puppies are all or nothing. Our vet compares them to an energizer bunny in that they go full steam and then will just collapse and plop down whenever the urge hits them, and pass out into a restorative slumber.

Check out these purely adorable photos of puppies and dogs sleeping. If they don’t persuade you to rest up, they will surely melt your heart!
