Sleeping Doodie

Post by Sasha & Pluto » 01 Mar 2014, 20:45

Hiya, I just wanted to ask how much sleep is normal for a puppy? Pluto sleeps a lot, today he has slept for most of the day and as I type this he is currently asleep next to me on the sofa, photo evidence below.Image

Roma slept more as a pup, but she usually just has a sleep after her walks and snoozes when she's snuggled next to you (but she doesn't really sleep). However, when 8pm comes, she's out of it :lol: She's presently snoring her head off in between me and the OH :lol:

Tilly sleeps a lot too, she is 4 months old. Guess they like babies, lol. Tilly dreams loads too, yaps and runs a lot in her sleep.

Your puppy looks the spitting image of mine, but Tilly is black :)

Rig slept loads as a tiny pup, and in phases, I think when he was having a growth spurt he slept more. He tends to be awake most of the morning now but sleeps on and off most of the afternoon. He has his big walk in the morning though. Then he crashes out between 9 and 10 pm :D

I remember worrying about Fozzie when he was about 12 weeks old. He had started to sleep unless he was eating or out for a little walk.

It lasted about a month. We never had the same with Florence - maybe she was different anyway but she also had a lively big brother who by then wanted to play and play.

Pluto's lovely. Are you sure he's not a "Shire" doodle (those fluffy feet remind me of a Shire horse). :)

Rudy slept a lot as a pup and he still sleeps a lot today!
When he was young he would sleep through the night and apart from toilet breaks would happily sleep through until about 10am if we ever had a lie in - otherwise his usual day would start by us waking him up at 7am.
And now i have a dog who plays hard on his walks but other than that spends much of the day snoozing, chewing on his toys or his favourite pastime - sitting on an armchair people watching! :lol:
I've always thought he's like this because he goes hell for leather when he's out on a walk!!

My two sleep a lot too.

After a busy weekend in Wales and a trip to the beach on Sunday they hardly moved yesterday! Last night I got "the look" off Sally at about 8pm which means - isn't it time you went to bed so I can have the sofa!!! :lol: :lol:

It's strange isn't it....Ambrose does the same but at 9 p.m....do you think they can tell the time ? :lol: He was quite a sleepy puppy and would fall asleep in the most peculiar places.

Jethro didn't sleep much at all through the day but zonked out and slept right through the night from when we brought him home.
He does now have a snooze after his morning walk and we all enjoy a peacefu 30-l 40 mins .
