Think you can keep those blue eyes open after a day of hiking, Rusty?
You are getting sleepy. Your eyes are closing.
You feel yourself drifting to sleep.
You are asleep.

What Weather When?
March 26, 2023
How do you dress for a day in the Western North Carolina Mountains? Just answer what weather when? Good luck with that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
Maybe Rusty was trying to hypnotize you.
isn’t napping after playtime/hikes/runs just the best!!!!
I’m not fooled. I know you have an On and Off switch like me. I bet if I pick up your leash.. you’d be wide awake and ready to go.
Napping is my most favorite thing to do! At least you earned it!
Rusty…. Rusty, I’m getting sleepy just looking at you!
You’re making me sleepy too! 🙂
Damn. Now I need a nap.
Hope you had a great sleep!
lots of woofs
Mom is going to be so proud of you. A sleepy dog is a great dog…

Rusty, are you gonna take that teasing lying down? oh, I guess the answer to that is ‘yes.’
Rusty, a family member always likes to say when he assumes this head up, eyes closed posture that he is only “resting his eyes” and not sleeping!
That could be what you were doing.
Feeling a little woosy myself….zzzzz
MAXDOG IN SOUTH AFRICA
Ah, another example of the “hikenosis” phenomenon!
A perfekht way to rekhover fur more fun and games!

Great series of photos! I laugh every time my dogs fall asleep with their heads still held high. But, with Rusty’s handsome blue eyes, it’s an even greater sight!
Rusty must have had a fun hike in the snow. I hope that you got more. I’d be very glad to send you some our winter weather. It’s -7F and snowing here this morning. That’s a bit extreme for me, and there’s no end in sight.
Awww, go ahead, Rusty. Put your head down and have some sweet dreams – it won’t be long and it will be time for another hike.
Woos, Phantom and Thunder
A hike, a nap…if you got supper after getting home, it sounds like a perfect day.
We are asleep just watching those pics!!! Very hypnotic blue eyes you have there.
Happy Monday xxx
you are asleep……deeply asleep…..now hand over all your treats…..go back to sleep…..zzzz
