Meet Chili, an adorable beagle/dachshund mix pup who’s just woken up from a long nap and now he’s stretching to his heart’s content! Tell me after seeing this you don’t feel like doing it too!
Chili the fur ball had a long day today and so he took a nap, its obvious that when he woke up, the first thing he wanted to do was to stretch himself to his heart’s content! But he also wanted to wag his tail, so what comes first? Both! Talking about stretching, why do they stretch after a nap?
According Sara Choe on Quora, “When sleeping, we often lie in the same position/ positions for an extended period of time which can make our muscles tight and stiff. This stiffness comes from the lack of blood flow that is the result of being still for so long. Stretching helps loosen and realign the muscles and it also sends signals to your brain that it’s time to start moving again.”
