1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Working a lot and a sleepy puppy   Thu Nov 13, 2014 2:57 am

This whole week work has been demanding and I've been not home a lot. Idk what she does when I'm not home or im sleeping. I'm assuming that she's sleeping. She's put for 1hr before work. About 45min lunch break shes out, I love living 2mins to work. And once I'm home out and about till I pass out. At night shes awake for about 2 hrs then she just cuddles up and sleeps. So far she cuddles up around 10 and passes out with me not far behind cuddled on the couch. Wake up later in the night and put her in the crate. Here's my question. If she's sleeping when in the crate that means she sleeps about 18 -20hrs a day.... that seems an awful lot dont you say? Bandit is two weeks shy of 5 months old. Is this okay? She acts normal while awake just lots of sleeping

I find that they sleep a lot more than I thought they would. Our new one sleeps even more than Kesler does.

I personally think that everything is ok... as long as she is getting enough excerise. My two cents Smile

She's probably about to have a big growth spurt. Wink I wouldn't worry too much, puppies sleep a ton, and unless she's acting sick, mopey, or seems in pain, she's just fine. Do you leave her anything to chew on or play with in the crate? She might be spending her time that way. I leave Diz loose in the apartment now when we're gone, and when I come home, there is usually an assortment of toys in various spots around the apartment, bones hidden in corners and under the couch, and areas where I can tell he napped. He sleeps a lot, but will play and entertain himself when he gets bored. It was the same when I used to crate him, I left him a frozen kong and nylabone, along with a toy of some kind and he'd play and chew. He also 'sings' every once in a while, which was sort of heartbreaking, but i think he just gets bored.

Yes kongs in the crate, sometimes filled with goodies. And we run in the backyard when we can and go on walks. And yes I've noticed she hasn't grown in a while

Another thing to consider - I've noticed Ami is sleeping a lot more since the days are much shorter. In the longer days, he would come in the house around dinner time, hang out with us, ask to go out and schmy around the backyard. Now, he comes in, curls up on his blanket under the kitchen table and then appears to get annoyed with the activity of the house and the lights, asks to go out and when I go looking for him, he's sound asleep in his house...without me even putting him on the trolley. Go figure!
