After a week full of celebration and excitement, the dogs of Instagram took this week to indulge in some much-needed R&R — for the most part. They got back into their normal routines of enjoying the weather, playing with toys, and, of course, napping. Check out some of our favorite snapshots below!
For Rosie the Old English Sheepdog, she spent the last few days doing what she does best. As it says in her Instagram bio, that’s bringing peace, love, and happiness to everyone around her. And we think she did an excellent job.
Booties, a bandana, AND a hair bow? A slow-motion running video only adds to the adorableness.
Who wants to spend time being uncomfortable? Not this dog. It may take awhile, but she always finds the perfect spot in her bed.
Rosie’s motto? “When in doubt, tongue out.” There’s no better way to spend your week then lounging with a toy — in the grass — looking as cute as this.
Finally, Rosie asked, “Why have small toys when you can have big ones?”
For Sergeant the Bulldog, he was focused on only one thing this week. Check out the video below to see for yourself.
Yup, you guessed it. Sarge is all about nap time. And he’s happy to do it anytime, anywhere.
Like on this lawn chair, for example.
If the weather is good, you might as well enjoy it!
For Bonnie the GSP, on the other hand, this was a week of balance. First, she relaxed and snuggled up in some very comfy-looking blankets.
Then, she let her silly side show.
And finally, she did what GSPs do best…fetch and retrieve! Look at that determination.
The gang tried out some dog yoga, or “doga,” as it’s often called.
They paused for a picturesque moment on the beach.
And finally, they saw ghosts?! Or at least something strange enough to inspire this face…
Sometimes we wonder what dogs see that we can’t.
While the rest of our canine friends took it easy, Loki and Styx, the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retrievers took things to new heights (literally). Styx competed in a frisbee competition with his owners.
Look at that skill!
We are back! We had a sun 🌞 & fun 🎉 filled weekend! We've met a lot of old and new friends and saw great routines! It was a good start for this season. Day 1 was not so good #humans… Day 2 was much better! Styx did great! He behaved very very well and he catched some good discs 💪🏻. We hope to train a bit from now so we'll be ready for the next tournament in 4 weeks. Have a great week! . Pic by Oliver Straschütz .
But post-competition, the Tollers enjoyed some downtime.
A wet dog is a happy dog.
Mud doesn’t bother Styx one bit.
