Sephi and Maya spend an aweful lot of time sleeping. Monday through Friday I am sure it is because we are not home and they are bored. But weekends are just the same. We do a little bit more on the weekend, but otherwise it is mostly sleep. Believe it or not, this is perfectly natural and normal. Dogs need more sleep than people. I suppose in the wild, wolves are the same. After all, if they spent a lot of energy being up and awake all the time, they would need to eat more. And food is already hard to come by. Wolves eat a lot at one time when they are lucky enough to catch something. And after they eat, they sleep. If food is hard to come by, they hunt a little, but mostly they spend time conserving energy – ie sleeping.
So for Sephi and Maya, it is sleep, eat breakfast, sleep some more, walk, sleep, play, sleep, eat dinner, sleep. Maya has a few more intermitant play times than Sephi because she is younger. But they mostly sleep.
