Video of Dog Calmly Sitting and Admiring the Lake Is the Peace We All Need

We all need a little bit of alone time every once in a while, and there's no shame in that. Even dogs, who are notoriously social and clingy, need to step away and have some peaceful moments to themselves. This is exactly what this pup was doing in a recent video, and honestly, we're jealous.

TikTok user @cakeladams shared a video of her family pup, Layla, sitting on an outdoor folding chair by the lakefront. The text on the video says Layla "sat there alone for half an hour looking at the lake." This seems like a very serene way to end her day. Check out the video to see Layla taking in the sights!

Aww, this is so cute. We love that Layla is taking some time for herself. Maybe she is thinking about all the belly rubs she got earlier that day!

People in the comments are providing their own speculations as to what Layla might be thinking. @jodiemarie508 said, "Praising the beautiful life you have given her," and @__cat4strophe commented, "Reminiscing the good old days as a young pup." She is definitely thinking good thoughts while looking at a pretty view like that!

Others think Layla has life all figured out. @squirrelpeak commented, "Whatever she's doing, she's doing it right." Another user, @smudgenshep, said, "The best thing about dogs is that they live in the moment. She was probably just meditating and enjoying the view." Dogs really do know how to focus on the important things in life, maybe we should start taking notes.

Layla's owner assured us that she was not alone for too long. The whole family had spent the day sitting around the lake, and Layla just didn't want to join them while they went to prepare dinner. They also brought her some treats after taking this video. Talk about top-notch service!
