sleeping -- how many hours?
so Roxy is 7 months old the end of the month. she seems content to go to her kennel ( bed) around 9pm....like now she's pacing and I know she wants her bedtime cookie and her kennel. she will go in around 9pmish..and ready to get up at whatever time I get up in the am. We usually get up between 7 and 8am. ( I work second shift so on the nights I work there is a little different schedule)..but for the main part this is it.
then she one eye naps during the day on and off.
exercise routines vary depending on the day and the temperature..it's hot again and humid here so we've cut our walks short. Today I took her out to the pool and she splashed around in there and chased her soccer ball around for maybe 1/2 hour and then she was done with that and wanted in. she likes to be in the kitchen chasing her water bottle around and chewing on bones. She's kind of a low keyed laid back gsd. she's never been really wound. Never have dealt with the land sharking..she's just kind of mellow like we are in the house. I do worry sometimes she's not getting enough exercise but all trips to the vet say that she's perfect weight..everything looks good and that I should be thankful that she is low key ..low maintenance like she is.
sunday is always dog park day..so that's def our highest energy burn day. We drive 40 minutes to the park with a couple of friends and their dogs...run up there for an hour or hour 1/2 ...drive back..then wait a bit...lunch and she's out for a good couple of hours in a DEEP sleep.
Most of her other "sleeps" are light sleeps.. at night she wakes up if she hears me get up to go to the bathroom..then it takes her a few to get settled back in...then she's alert if one of the cats jump up to sleep with me..she waits till everybody is settled back down ..then she gives one of those deep sighs and closes her eyes ...at least half way.
is that too much sleep at night? do I worry or be thankful that we all get good night sleeps?
