Lazy Day

Today is my kind of day! It is “Lazy Day!”


“Here’s a special day you can celebrate without getting up from the sofa. Lazy Day is an ideal excuse to take a break and enjoy some precious “me” time, without feeling guilty about it.”

“Now’s your chance to stop tearing around doing chores and organising events. Sit down and relax, or go back to bed for a nap. You could even mark the occasion by pampering yourself with a massage treatment or visit to a spa – if getting there doesn’t seem too much like hard work, that is.”


“The founders of Lazy Day aren’t known, possibly because they were too busy chilling out to keep a record of their efforts! However, their idea has caught on, with many people enjoying the chance to get away from everyday stress. So lie back on the couch, give your TV remote control some exercise, and enjoy a well-earned rest”

Mom says that for a Sheltie I am one of the LAZIEST dogs that she knows! I have no idea what she is talking about! Just because I don’t love taking walks it doesn’t mean I am lazy! I work security around my den 24/7 and in my opinion that is FAR from being lazy!

Barks and licks and love




  1. that is the day for me! Oh I would like to spend the whole day in bed with doing nothing than to eat and to watch tv….

      sounds like a plan! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  2. Oh yes, homeland security is VERY impawtant and takes up loads of energy, just ‘cos your eyes are closed doesn’t mean you are not ready to SPRING on to action at the sound of the TREAT jar being opened!

    Sounds like a day designed by cats for cats! I wonder if Mom could skip her work today and tell her clients it is lazy day and she doesn’t feel like working???

    You’re not a terrier because there’s no such thing as a “Lazy Day” for terriers.

    I love lazy days. I read instead of watching TV, but I get the idea.

    You are not lazy, Dakota. You work hard and your mom knows that.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to Cody and your mom and dad. ♥♥♥

    What? We should have read this earlier, we’ve already spent our whole morning doing stuff and being the opposite of lazy! Good thing we have the afternoon to make it up. 🙂

  14. We will try to take advantage of Lazy Day after some yard work. This is a great excuse for an afternoon “retirement” nap! LOL!

  15. Supervising your home is not an easy job! You deserve some lazy time now and then, Dakota!

  16. I am in total agreement with this day! Being a geriatric pup, lazy is mostly the order of my days:)
    Pipo?? Well maybe somewhat…and petcretary would love to be really lazy and call in to her work…but well, she just cannot do that…so I guess her lazy will happen when she gets home…besides she helps all her residents be lazy, BOL!!! (Not really…she just helps them get ready for bed…)

  18. A lazy day is always good. You look so comfy you should have more than 1 lazy day, Dakota, are you a Collie Dog? You look like a Collie Dog. I used to have a Collie as a pet and found Collie Dogs are sweet animals. I’m sure you’re sweet.

      Hi Crystal!! Nope, I am a Shetland Sheepdog not a Collie! We love Collies but I definitely am not a Collie! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  19. Working security around your den is a tough job! Glad you get to enjoy a lazy day holiday!

    • Dakota says:

      thank you my furiend!! I agree!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  22. Tallulah and I took full advantage of this celebration . . . doing pretty much exactly what we do every single day of the year. 🙂 By the way, Dakota, you are the cutest little sleeper ever. Love that photo!

    I likes that celebration! I thinks I’ll join you! And, I thinks Homeland Security is much more impawtent than walkies anyhu! Wait…sometimes….depends if the black Lab on the corner is in his yardie…I likes to bark at him!

  24. Rachel says:

    Every day is a lazy day for our senior pup, Eddie. And for the cats, too! Nothing wrong with that. 🙂

  25. Security jobs are hard work. I’m sure your mum appreciates your efforts. Way to keep the family safe from serial killers (otherwise known as the mailman). Happy Friday, Dakota!

  26. I thought every day was lazy day! Yawn …

  27. Oh, that’s funny… I accuse Rita of being lazy all the time too! The other day, she didn’t get up until 10:10! (And she’s only 6! What will she be like when she’s old??) But she would say the same as Dakota – she’s busy working, defending the realm!

  29. Nothing wrong with being “lazy” once in a while! I wish Ducky would celebrate “Lazy Day” once in a while! That little girl has more energy than Shadow, Hubby, and I have put together! And usually in the morning when we’re trying to wake up gently. BOL

  31. I think we all need a day when we do nothing. In my house, we call it, “Pajama day.” LOL

  32. Lazy Day went well around here – looks like it did there as well!

  33. hahahahahaha! This is tooooo funny – I don’t think I have EVER heard of a dog not liking to take walks! ESPECIALLY a Sheltie! Those dogs – so I have heard – are insanely hyper… Typically!

  34. Oh wow! Lazy day is my FAVOURITE day of the year!! Right now I’m recovering from surgery so I’m especially tired and lazy.. but I LOVE following along with all your adventures!
    Lots of love – your friend Morrie!

  35. We never knew there was an official Lazy Day! We love being lazy like Dakota, it’s actually so relaxing and peaceful. 🙂 Dakota you are a one smart pup! Maybe we can make a Dakota Day for another Lazy Day! 😀
