Weekends aren't just for catching up on laundry. These dogs show us humans how to really live large from Friday night to Monday morning.

The Friday afternoon countdown

Anticipation is clearly half the fun of weekends, and this dog just can't help but watch the seconds tick by on Friday afternoon.

Happy hour with the besties

What's the best way to toast the end of a workweek? Meeting for happy hour specials with your doggie besties, obvi.

Ouch, the next morning though

We overdid it on the fun.

It's OK, everyone. Pancakes.

This dog must be thanking his lucky stars that pancakes are here to save the day. Also: Don't touch them.

Whoa, slow down. It's nap time.

Let's not get too carried away with all that exercise.

Waking up just in time to cuddle all night

Thank goodness he woke up in time for Saturday night cuddles and tummy rubs. Now, time for more sleep.

Brunch? Yes!

Relaxing on a Sunday morning. Is there anything better? This dog says no (and that probably has something to do with mimosas — and bacon).

Oh no! The weekend is almost over.
