Sunbathing pitties Mayo and Olive are the unquestioned champions of summer relaxation

August 23, 2022

Who knew laying on the hard, hot pavement could look so nice? Nothing seems more relaxing than what pit bull terriers Olive and Mayo are doing in their viral TikTok from earlier this summer, reports Daily Paws.

The video, posted by their mom (jennywalker_) on June 18, shows the two family pets doing what they must love most: sunbathing. They’re both unmoving on their backs, T-rexing their front legs and exposing their bellies to the sky as they snooze. All they’re missing are some beach chairs and dog bowls with fun miniature umbrellas in them.

It’s somehow the peak of relaxation, even on the hard pavement of an outdoor patio. The soothing ten-second video has been viewed more than 7 million times on TikTok so far. 

Walker’s account has since become primarily focused on the two sun-obsessed dogs, with several other videos showing them catching some rays. Apparently, Mayo will even get a little annoyed when Olive, her daughter, gets a little too antsy during tanning time. Guess it’s not all relaxing.

If your dog is like Olive and Mayo—and who wouldn’t want his or her fur baby to be that relaxed?—just make sure they’re sunbathing safely. You can find some canine sunscreen at a local pet store or online. You don’t want them risking a sunburn (or worse)!
