We puppies need a LOT of sleep. It's tiring business, growing from infant to adult in just one year! My human says I used to cat nap all the time when I was really little, like these shots taken when I was just over 9 weeks old. Look at that belly! But now that I'm an adolescent, there's just too many interesting things going on for me to waste much of my time on naps.
Yes, I actually am sleeping on my human's boots in that first shot. She wouldn't let me gnaw on them (that suede is just too tempting), but she did stay like that for a good 15 minutes, talking on the phone, so I could get 50 winks in.
