Can't a guy even sleep out in the sun
without someone taking a picture?

Jack's tips for taking a nap in the sun
• Always wear your sun scream. The tall guy uses baby sun scream on my nose (just like the lady doctor told him)
• Make sure there is a tree near by, so when you get hot, you can move into the shade.
• Make sure there are a lot of puppies out in the neighbor yards, so you can smell them. If your neighbors do not have any puppies, move. You don't want to live in a place where people do not have puppies.
• One of those nice chairs and cushions from Crate and Barrel to lie on is very comfortable. Make sure you choose a nice color to contrast with your fuzz.
• Make sure your peoples can see you through the window, so when you need a cold refreshing drink, they will be able to bring it to you.
• For some puppies, a pool would be nice after your nap. But then again, some puppies would just as soon eat a bug than get in the water! So make sure you have some bugs available.


  1. Great advice!

    Enjoy your sun, mines disappearing under the marshmallows now. Blaugh!

  2. Good to see you are sensible in the sun Jack. In Australia we are always encouraged to 'Slip, Slop, Slap and that means Slip on a Shirt · Slop on Sunscreen · Slap on a Hat.

  3. Oh yeah Jack!! Great sun advice. The bug eating and pool chillin' sound fun!!

  4. Thanks for the tips. I like to lay in the sun until I am sizzling hot. Momma says I am too dumb to know when to go into the shade. As if!


  5. Some dogs don't like to lay in the sun because of their big fur coats. But bug-eatin' is A-ok!

  6. Good morning are undoubtedly the puppy who knows the most about a lot. We learn so much from you...and on top of that you have a fine TG who looks after you from the 'tip of your nose to the tip of your tail!!! We hope TG is feeling better.
    Happy Monday,
    Madi and MOm

  7. You're just afraid TG will get a pic of you snoring, Jack! But, I'll take some of your sunshine any day!


  8. We are just not ready for sun yet. . it's melting our snow!! Can we have one more Snow storm. . Please!!!

    Woo Woooo

  9. We even had sun here all weekend, so thanks for the timely tips. And we do like bugs - and birds.

  10. BOL--love the tips. TG--hope you are feeling better. We were thinking of ya..

    Licks from me!!


  11. I'm going to tell my assistant to take me to Crate & Barrel today. I'm sure I need one of those comfy chairs. Thanks for the tip!

  12. Solid advice Jack-man. Since we've been in Arizona, Lady has been getting a lot of practice and wanted to add this:
    "When your peeps bring you your water, be sure to roll over and swish yer tail for a belly rub. Works every time"!

  13. Great advice, my friend! Now we just need sunshine -- how about sending some our way!

  14. I think bugs & a pool would be a nice option. You can never have too much of either!

  15. Jack, you have some excellent advice! Holly goes for the bugs since we have no pool but she seems content with a bug or two! Love, Debbie and Hollydog

  16. Thank you, Jack. I only had one of those covered (lying in the sun where I can be seen and have my M serve me) but the rest was pretty much news. One time I saw a doggie with bright pink sun scream on and I refuse to wear anything pink. I'll look into other colors

  17. Great advice Jack - gotta get me some nice furniture to lie on!
    Hugs xo

  18. oh jack I love to lay in the sun but my mommy never puts sun scream on me!! I will have to tell her that your lady doctor says so... well have fun enjoying your sun!!

    wags and licks

  19. Hmmm wish you'd posted this advice earlier!! cause then I wouldn't feel all burnt up!!

  20. I will has to write that down and memory ize it. I had a little go in the sun, but then I wanted to see what Mum beed doing and if I go out on my decking I gets two rabbit-dogs walking all over me. Lite really.

  21. Hey Jack,
    We still have snow and it is raining to day so now laying outside for me. As soon as it warms up, I have a really nice front porch and swing to lay around on and it is very comfy. My yard has trees so I am all set!!


  22. What a wonderful place for a nap Jack. The TG must be in fetching a cool drink for you.


  23. This was my favorite : "If your neighbors do not have any puppies, move." So cute Jack! I bet it is toasty warm laying looks wonderful.

  24. Good job, Jack!!! So while your outside, where's the TG?!?!? hmmmm, something to think about!!!

    lotsa licks,

  25. we hates the waters mommish tried that once and we all wee wee'd in it on purpose and she TOTALLY got the point

  26. ohhhh I´m so jealous....
    sun... I can´t even remember what that feels like?

  27. Jack-
    You continue to be the smartest dog I know. When are you starting your official advise column for dogs - it could be syndicated in newspapers around the world.

  28. Also, keep a shaded pile of leftover snow handy in case you want to cool off quickly.

  29. Thanks for the tip. As a responsible pet owner, I am embarassed that I don't put sun screen on my puppies noses.

  30. Weather is finally getting nice here, but no lawn chairs out I don't really like to lay in the dirt. Glad you are enjoying the sun!!!
