Wonderful Wednesday: N is for Napping

We love the couch. Our couch is the perfect place to nap. We nap a lot. Mom says that we are just lazy loafers.

According to

On average, most dogs spend about 50% of their day sleeping—about 12 hours in a 24-hour period. Puppies, large-breed dogs, and older dogs may sleep more, while small-breed dogs and working dogs may sleep less.

In addition to the 50% of their day spent sleeping, dogs will then spend another 30% of their awake hours doing what I call “loafing.” Just like with humans, loafing is when a dog is awake but really not doing much of anything—just hanging out. Typically, loafing time is spent lying down, watching the world go by, and generally enjoying being lazy.

So, that comes out to a whopping 80% of the doggy day being spent not doing much of anything at all.

Our couch is the perfect place to be lazy loafers. That and the top of the stairs.

Where do you love to loaf?

Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤
