Lazy Sunday

We had a very rainy and stormy start to our day here. Thunder figured it was a good day to get an early morning nap in.

Settling in.

Just not quite comfy yet.

Maybe this way.

This is just right, just like Dakota used to do.

Why are you disturbing my sleep, flashy box operator?

I am trying to get this body moving, really I am.

Yuck, morning breath.

And now for the final stretch.

Woos, Thunder

Good stretch, Thunder! A stretch like that would earn Dennis a treat.

Stella said...

That is the kind of day(s) we have been having because its been raining all day Friday, Saturday, and we have sunshine today! So we will go for walkies!

I must say, I'm rested up for it.

Hi Thunder
We are very impressed by your long slow stretching style. We liked the second last pic - not counting the video - you just look so like how our mum feels in the morning!
Don't overdo it now.

All of that rain missed us this weekend - can you believe that?!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

You are very good at stretching!

You got rain? We wish we would get some rain here! It hasn't rained since April. But that is normal for Napa Valley.

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos! I like the final stretch off of the couch, Mom always makes fun of my stretching for some reason, she thinks it is silly, what is silly is the Border collie, who does not stretch at all, strange breed those Bc's

Twix said...

It has been icky here today, huh? I think it is supposed to rain more tonight-ick! I love the stretch with your front paws on the floor and rear ones on the couch! Perfect technique. I'd give it a 10 for sure!

Mango said...

The people do not always appreciate how hard it is to find just the right position.


Tracey and Huffle said...

Does the flashy beast ever run out of batteries? That's what we should hope for.

I loved Phantom's photoshoot, that was very funny. I also loved the remembering Dakota tribute, those boys are doing a good job.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Oh Thunder, I like to do the same off-the-couch stretch. The elevated position of the back legs really helps get any extra sleepies out.


Mochi and Mommy said...

Streeeeeeetch! Ah, I feel better now! I like to come off the futon like that too, especially after a nice long nap! :)


The Thundering Herd said...

Nothing like a really good stretch to get you moving, huh, Thunder?

Reese =^..^= said...

That was a fine example of relaxing.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

You sure do like to stretch.

We love to nap during a shower. Or anytime, come to think of it!

It was really great of your mom to coordinate her living room furniture with your coat!

Sue said...

When are humans going to learn the pleasures of napping all day?

Love the photos Thunder!

Take care

Wild Dingo said...

The left coast NEVER has rainy days, which is very sad. They're my favorite kind of days...cuddled up with the pack! Thunder knows how to take advantage of...well...rainy days... how appropriate!

Simcha said...

It's always important to stretch before making any sudden moves.


Thoughts said...

Such a sweetie, I would love to cuddle up right there with him... GREAT pictures, thanks for sharing :)
