Naturally Heated Floors

How can you not relate to this lazy mutt? It's amazing to me how as an animal owner you can begin to understand the conversations that are emitted from the eyes of your furry friends. I imagine this K9 is telling us that he's done for the day. Whether that's due to exhaustion or depression, I guess I'll never really know (both are kinda plausible in the dog's visage).

Sometimes I get the strong urge to lay on a hard floor (carpeted works too) just to straighten my back a bit. The risk is getting too comfortable and falling asleep, usually while watching a movie or TV. Then it's like your own slow-motion horror flick as you try to get up, complete with grunting, brief screams and zombie-like speed. - Jared

Hah! Love your heating element! Such an interesting perspective, and I do see the communication there. Very nice painting and post, Jared!
