Officially, Memorial Day is a day for remembering the men and women who have died while serving the United States. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of summer and fun in the sun.

If you’re lucky enough to have the day off (or, better yet, a three-day weekend!), you might choose to celebrate the start of the new (and some might say best) season by relaxing poolside or on the beach. Maybe you’ll go to a barbecue or picnic. We all work hard; an extra day off from the daily grind is such a nice treat.

Even though our pets don’t work a full-time job, they still like to partake in all the same Memorial Day activities. And because they spend all day everyday in full-on chill mode, they are very, very good at it. Dogs and cats seem to live by the same code: sleep hard, play hard.

Here are 11 pets who are clearly having the best Memorial Day ever. We should all take notes.

1. Doggy Boat Ride

Who needs to learn the doggie paddle when you have a roundtrip deep-end-to-shallow-end ride? Brilliant.

2. Flag Nap

We all need to nap more. And we all need to be a little more patriotic. This dog does both, at the same time.

3. Road Trippin’

Three-day weekends are perfect for road trips. Hopefully this cat can reach the brakes!

4. Hammock Time

This cat has a hammock, and clearly needs nothing more from life.

5. Kitty Pool

How does this cat get from A to B? By enlisting his dog buddy for help, duh.

6. Beach Buddies

Romping through the sand is the equivalent to heaven for these two.

7. Hose Play

Just leave the hose with the little girl and the dog and they’ll be occupied by their shared silliness until Tuesday.

8. Volleyball Dog

Ready to spike it!

9. Pool Puppies

One is smiling and the other is swimming with a tennis ball. Does it get any better than that?

10. Cat Who Called The Chair

“Dude, back off. I called it. I’m gonna be here all weekend.”

11. Moment Of Silence

Amidst the barbecues and relaxation, don’t forget to take a page out of this dog’s book and remember what this holiday is about: Remembering fallen soliders who fought to protect our freedom.
