It’s a moment universally dreaded around the world: the morning after a long holiday weekend. A time when it seems nearly impossible to get back to work, school or real life. The much-feared day after Labor Day. Dun dun dun!

These cats and dogs know just how you feel. If you’re seriously struggling to return to the daily grind, we at least hope that these funny pictures will brighten your day!

Oh, no. Molly and Buster look way too comfortable — there's no chance they're getting up anytime soon.

If anyone's going to get away with the "five more minutes" plea, it'll be Sparky the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. How could you say no to that face?
