John, I think every pet owner can relate to your photo. When I had my dogs the sunny spots were always taken.

Oh Dixie is having her day in the sun. My old dog use to seek out the sunny spots for warmth on her old bones. It was humorous and sad to watch.

But Dixie looks quite content. Give her pet for me.

Our cats will find the smallest sliver of sunlight if we keep the blinds closed.  Most sunny days, they'll find the warmest spot by the window and crash.

Ha Ha, that sounds like me. I often try to wiggle myself to get positioned in that one tiny sliver of sunlight that is left!

Hi John, That is a great title and photo. You are so right about the sunny spot. I can't wait to see your last post about the Falcom in the tree.

Hi John - indeed!

Hey there John, Mini Schnauzer looks pretty happy. Let us see the sunny side of life and not have a care in the world. Once in awhile I get that feeling.

Thanks for sharing this John, clearly Dixie knows the place to be.  Most of our dogs line up in front of the sliding glass doors of our office.

It is amazing how dogs follow the sun John.

John: My cats seek out the sunniest spot in our house, then jockey for position as the spot changes.

John, that's a great photo.  Our furry boys are the funny spot in our house.  They do love to be in a cool house in sunny spot.  

Posted by Mike Cooper, GRI, Your Neighborhood Real Estate Sales Pro (Cornerstone Business Group Inc) over 6 years ago

Dixie looks so comfortable in her sunny spot, John. Dogs and cats always seek out that little ray of sunshine.

John, so true! Our dog used to seek the sun filtering through our glass front doors! Enjoy your day!

I like a sunny spot in the late afternoon if I have time too John...Dixie dog is very happy.

I try and find my sunny spot during the winter months and early morning, nothing better than sun rays shining through a window on a cold day, put me right to sleep once I move the dog out of the

John & Debbie, what a cute picture of Dixie!    Being mid 90's yesterday, the cats still want to lay in the sun, amazing!

Hi John - In the mornings we always know exactly where our dogs are - following the sunny spots as the sun rises.

Posted by Dick Greenberg, Northern Colorado Residential Real Estate (New Paradigm Partners LLC) over 6 years ago

And Dixie Dog found the perfect spot.....with Mommy's permission I am sure.

John, our chocolate lab, Zeke, loves to sit by the front door with the sun on him .

Good morning John, Always gotta work on the tan as the months ahead the sunlight gets shorter and shorter.

Make yourself a great day.

Posted by Raymond E. Camp, Licensed Real Estate Salesperson Greater Rochester (Howard Hanna Real Estate Services) over 6 years ago

Hi John.

Indeed, if there's a soft sunny spot in the house the pets will find it. 

Posted by Adrian Willanger, Profit from my two decades of experience (206 909-7536 over 6 years ago

Hi John.  That dog does not look like it is willing to share that special spot on the couch.  Hope there are other sunny spots that aren't taken.

Hi John,  That is a great picture.  Looks like a warm sunny place to stretch out and catch a cat nap.

John, Looks like someone found his bed now where is yours? I love the picture thanks for sharing!

That dog has branded himself into the life of luxury and it shows even on the look on his face! Oh... to enjoy a sunny spot in the world of comfort 24/7 - how good is that! Life is Good!!!

And leave it to our four legged friends to find that sunny spot every time.

John~ There are some days I love to sit in the sun and other days I want nothing to do with it. Guess it depends on how hot (or humid) it might be.

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) over 6 years ago

At my house the sunny spot is my kitchen and near the back sliding door in the living room, during the morning hours.  My kittens love it!

Posted by Myrl Jeffcoat, Greater Sacramento Real Estate Agent (GreatWest Realty) over 6 years ago


cute picture and that looks like one very spoiled mini schnauzer pup! Of course he thinks he owns the place in true schnauzer form!

Many Maryland retirees are looking for a sunny location for their retirement residence. When there is snow on the ground, the sunny spots will be even more appreciated.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 6 years ago

John THANK YOU so much for the re-blog, it is appreciated. As fall approaches it will be me looking for that sunny spot to stay warm. Have a great day
