RELAX LIKE A DOG, NAP LIKE A CAT

My poor overworked dogs need to catch a little relaxation whenever they can. It’s amazing how many hours a day our pets can sleep. I’m told dogs, on the average, sleep between 21 and 23 hours a day. The remaining two or three hours are devoted to begging for treats, eating, and barking.

  1. Dogs sleep 21-23 hours a dayπŸ˜‚ That’s so funny, tho my dog is soo hype all the time and usually just wants to play a lot and eat a lot. She doesn’t sleep 21 hours, but when I’m not home she might be sleeping just as much (cuz what else can she do without me). I like this post! And the pictures are very cute!

  3. I’m going to have to try that sometime…. sleep for 21 hours in one day. I can do 12 if I’m really, really zonked out… and even then, my back feels like a crumbled statue’s after laying in bed that long…

    • That’s my problem too. I could sleep more, but they’d have to bring in the jaws of life to extract me from the bed. After about 7 hours, the need to move before I fuse into a solid lump exceeds my desire to sleep. This NEVER stops our pets. They can ALWAYS sleep. Ever seen a cat or a dog with insomnia?

  5. 21 to 23 hours per day seems unreal. I can’t say I’ve seen that, as the owner of maybe a dozen dogs in my lifetime. Mine were pretty active. I hear cats sleep about 16.

    Your dogs are adorable though. Poor tired pooches haha

  8. There really is nothing more relaxing than watching a pet sleep. I have no explanation for this, but there is a peacefulness, a gentleness, a delight that comes over us as they rest close by. Delightful.

    • oh, defnitely. they roll over, and you go, ‘awwwww” . They snore and you chuckle. Isnt that CUTE. They open one eye and look at you, the tail thumps and they drift off and you are in hysterics. Been there, still am.
      Had a small money cat at one point who used to sleep under the light on the kitchen table. On her back, paws doing that dog paddle thing, slowly, drifting. I could watch that forever.

  9. Hah. I meant brother, but borther suggests bother, doesn’t it? Also appropriate. And to be fair, Diego is no angel. He heads directly for the garbage can if he is let into the house.

  10. i know Morrie and Diego would be great at sofa lounging, but alas, they are limited to the deck chairs. Morrie likes to claim everything in the way he knows best, and I fear my furniture as well as our noses would suffer for it. So sorry, Diego, you usually have to abide by the same rules as your little borther.

  11. I instantly want to become a dog. I have everything in life but a long, relaxing sleep isn’t one of them.

  12. They need their rest. Being a dog (or cat) is hard work. They have to plan and organise their sleeps, that is a full time occupation – and in between they have to eat.

  13. well after all, that nap/sleep/roll over sleep thing is exhausting. Wears a fella out, just yawning, some days.

    • And don’t forget the racing up and down along the fence while barking at delivery people … or any vehicle in the driveway. Bonnie doesn’t bother with the whole running up and down while barking anymore. Now that she has Gibbs, she tells him what to do and he does it. They have divided their responsibilities. Bonnie watches. Gibbs runs and barks.

    • It’s a hard day’s night for Bonnie and Gibbs. They need biscuits and then a chaser.
