Many pet owners think that their dogs must be incredibly bored when they leave them alone. Surely your dog is laying there and pining for your return, right? Well, not all the time, which you will see as you make your way through this list.

Though your dog likely won’t wait around for you to return, he or she surely will lie around for awhile. They might even lay by the door and wait for you for a bit.
