Recovering From A Long Weekend

With Independence Day last Thursday, we suspect a lot of our readers took several days away from work and are now recovering from a long weekend.

Roscoe can't believe it's Monday already.

Though we kept to our usual schedule last Friday, we know that many of our friends took advantage of the timing of the holiday to schedule some extended time off. If you are one of those, we bet that you are struggling a little today being back at work after a long break.

You aren't alone wishing the weekend was still happening.

We just wanted to let you know that we sympathize with your plight and wanted to share our tired pictures with you. Of course, we do have one big difference. We plan to do this all day long. Just saying.

You humans go back to work now.

    I notice that Roscoe’s feet are green, like maybe a certain Sibe was running in the freshly cut grass. 🙂

    There are many times I would like to be a dog. This is one.

    There’s a dog using a bed!

    I actually wasn’t on to comment because I spent some of Ftiday in the ER . I have pneumonia. So glad to be back to see the pictures of the herd. I missed all of you!

      We’re wishing you a speedy and complete recovery Jean. Watching the boys snooze makes a nap look pretty good to me.

      So sorry to hear you aren’t well, but glad to hear you you are on the road to recovery. Good thoughts for you.

    I could use a day of all-day napping…. or two, or three, or more!
