Grab a hot drink, curl up with a cozy blanket and take a look at 17 pictures of dogs sleeping and relaxing in bed. Enjoy!

Sure, there’s food to eat and shows to binge on Netflix, but it’s hard to care about any of that when you’re under the covers in a comfy bed.
2. Sleeping Sausages
For these dogs, snoozing is always better when you can do it with a buddy… especially when your buddy is just as tiny, furry and cute as you are. Can we say #couplegoals?

“To develop LURVIG, the starting point was our human furniture at IKEA, but then we focused on the most common needs and behaviors of cats and dogs: sleeping, eating, playing, exercising and being close to us,” says Schäfer, adding, "We are striving not to ‘humanize’ cats and dogs while still seeing them as family members.”
Oh, you thought self-care was just for the hoomans? This pup knows otherwise.
8. Lounging Lab
“When I was your age, we had to listen to our owners tell everyone they walked uphill in the snow—both ways. It was awful.”
9. Reluctant Unicorn
