This video captures the adorable moment an exhausted nurse dozed off after a busy shift cuddling her two pet bulldogs.

Rachel Martinko, 29, a nurse at Morton Plant Hospital in Florida, had just finished a long shift and returned home exhausted.

As she collapsed in bed she was joined by her dogs Cleatus, nine, and Opie, three.

The touching moment was captured by her boyfriend, Ethan Wycoff, 32, a software sales representative.

He said: ‘They were all sleeping so soundly, Cleatus snoring as usual, and it was too cute not to film it.

‘Rachel had just finished her third consecutive day at the hospital and had worked a longer than normal shift. She was exhausted.’

He added: ‘She always comes in to greet us before taking a shower and unwinding for the day. She was home less than 10 minutes before a simple hug and a kiss for the boys ended up sucking her in with them.’

The bulldogs Cleatus, 9, and Opie, 3, were totally exhausted from lounging around the house all day and decided it was a great opportunity to reel her in for a nap on the bed.

‘My dogs don’t typically do anything to earn their perpetual exhaustion, but they sleep hard and they will often suck you in to a nap like a black hole.

Her boyfriend, Ethan Wycoff (pictured), said the bulldogs regularly sleep in their bed

‘They slept for a good hour before Cleatus kicked Rachel in the head trying to reposition himself.

‘He’s my old man. He fits the bulldog stereotype in every way. He’s calm, slow, lazy (or energy efficient as we call him) quiet, rarely gets excited about anything other than food,’ Mr Wycoff said.

Despite the numerous evil attempts to trick them into taking impromptu naps the couple absolutely love their lazy dogs, and take them just about everywhere.

‘They join us to dinner, to the bar, to watch sports, the beach, on vacation, you name it.’
