7 Dogs Who Understand How You Feel About Mondays

Look at those sad eyes. Look deep into them, and you'll see that they aren't much different than the same eyes you see in the mirror on Monday morning. Where did the weekend go? How could it possibly be Monday? Why am I up at this God-forsaken hour, when just yesterday I was peacefully snoozing at the exact same time?

Our four-pawed brethren might not have to make it through the slog we call Monday, but they certainly get how we are feeling about it.

1. Oh, you've got to be kidding me. There is no way it could possibly be time to get up.

2. Finally emerged from my bed—and I'm not amused. And now I have to wash myself and look presentable for everyone in my office?

3. Oh, what a shock. Traffic again.

4. They don't even sell coffee in the size that I need.

5. My life would be drastically better if I weren't at this Weekly Goals meeting. Or if I could tell everyone my weekly goal was to throw out this headset and go back to sleep.

6. I don't care if it's 11:10 AM, I'm eating my lunch now. Deal with it.

7. It's nearly over. There's a chance I'll survive the day.
