Cookie don't do a lot of sleeping. I don't know if it's because she's just a year old or if life is too exciting to sleep. Lol!

The younger they are the less they sleep. They have a lot of energy at that age. 🐶🐾

I miss you to my friend. Please see your messages. I sent you one. Sorry. Please forgive me. I meant to tell you, Tiger, MM, and Willie... But fell asleep at the keyboard before I could write you and Tiger. Lol! I am so sorry. I plan on coming back for sure. I love playing with my scrabble buddies! 🤗

More hours than I can count.

I'm not even sure.

When I go to bed they are awake. When I wake up they are awake. I don't know what they do when my wife and I are at work. If Mrs. MM is off work when I'm working they are awake.

If I am at home and awake, they do not sleep. They are very active dogs and they keep me active. To be honest, I've never seen Buck or Daisy napping since they were about two months old. Sadie naps occasionally but her naps are few and far between. Especially since we got the pups.

Dogs often spend 50 percent of the day sleeping, 30 percent lying around awake, and just 20 percent being active. But unlike humans, who rest best when they stick to a regular schedule, dogs are flexible sleepers: They can easily pop up when there’s action (like when there's a mail carrier at the door) and sleep when they’re bored. Dogs also sleep less when they have more to do. Working pups, like police or farm dogs, sleep less than those that have little more to do than sit around a house all day.

(My 2 rescues must have read that article.)

Arabella sleeps probably 21 hours. She is old has heart issues and was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. Now that the seizures are under control, she is a happy girl when she is awake. I hope that stays true for a while.

Skully sleeps a lot less than that. Maybe 16-18 hours. And a lot of that is just dozing, not actual sleeping. The slightest movement or noise will get him up.

Awe! 😔 It feels like we know her, like she's been a part of our Blurtit family. I am so sorry to hear of this PJ. I will be praying along side of Skip.

Thank you both. She is doing well now. She even went for a short walk this morning.

How many hours does a dog sleep in a 24 hour period?

The average dog sleeps for about 12 to 14 hours per 24-hour cycle. That's just the beginning, though. Puppies, who expend a lot of energy exploring and learning may need as much as 18 to 20 hours. Older dogs also tend to need more rest, as do certain breeds.
