Summer Naps: 25 Photos of Sleeping Dogs

The hot, hazy days of summer are just ahead of us (even though many of us have already been experiencing them for days or even weeks already!).

What’s better than a day at the beach followed by a long nap during the hot summer? My mother always said that there was nothing like a day in the sun or at the beach to wear out a child. The very same can be said for our dogs. Dog owners know that after a long stroll in the park, or a few hours in the doggie park, sprinkler or no sprinkler, our pups will be ready for a summer snooze.

My dogs scope out the absolute coolest spot in the house. For Hayley, that is on the cool hardwood floor and for Django, it means the fifth step of the living room stairs where the air conditioner directly hits. Oh, if we couldn’t all just be like dogs… play hard, and then rest up, to play hard again!

Check out these crazy cute photos of sleeping dogs who have found that perfect combination of warm weather relaxation: intense summer fun followed by leisurely nap. Makes you wanna find a cool resting spot of your own, doesn’t it?
