Hey guys! What do you do when you’ve got a big sunpuddle?

Sunbathe! Am I right?? Oh…not like those silly humans sunbathe. Where they lounge around in chairs and rub sunscreen stuff all over themselves. Yuck.

I’m talking about real sunbathing. Like this…

*slurp lickity slurp slurp* I’d like to see the humans try this!

Hey watch me in action!

And when all the licking and slurping is done…

That’s when sunbathing turns into sunnapping. Zzzzzzzzz…

  44. I wouldn’t even try to compete with you in this category, Ernie.

    But I would like to thank you and everyone there for their kind thoughts upon the death of my Parker. He was a great friend to me, and he clearly had many admirers. For that I am grateful. A life known and remembered is immortal.

  45. That is definitely the right kind of sunbathing!
