Dogs Happy to Clock an Extra Hour of Sleep

The downside to daylight saving time coming to an end this weekend? Our days will feel shorter. The upside? Rolling back the clocks means an extra hour of sleep this Sunday. Exhausted parents, overworked employees, sleepy-headed teenagers and pooped-out pups, rejoice!

From the looks of these pictures of dogs from our Facebook community, our four-legged friends could use the supplemental slumber. As the saying goes, let’s remember to let sleeping dogs lie — this Sunday morning especially.
