I enjoy sleeping. It’s fun, relaxing, and provides me the energy to play with my Daddies all evening long. I even have many places to sleep so I can pick and choose the simplest options. There’s my regular, sturdy bed next to my daddy’s bed that’s ideal in winter. it’s two blankets over the highest of the bed so I can easily run under the covers if ever I want a fast nap and need to cover.
I even have a transportable bed that’s next to my daddy in his office where he’s employed during the day. it’s a touch pillow and a snug blankie. I like better to sleep in my very own bed in the dark because I don’t want to be disturbed by my daddies.
Also, their bed is so high I’d hurt myself if I plan to get down and use the restroom (piddle pads). My latest love is the giant purple bean bag chair within the recreation room. With a touch effort, I can squish it around to form it fit my body perfectly. And there are several blankies I can hide under.
Generally a Chihuahua sleeps 12 – 14 hours each day . Some sleep up to 18 hours each day . There’s light sleep and there’s REM (Rapid Eye Movement) deep sleep. We wake often to form sure our surroundings is kept safe and secure.
I would sleep longer during the day but my daddy wakes me for a lunch snack and a day walk. I don’t believe exercise but my daddy does. What are you able to do. I can’t pass up a delicious snack though.
Around 4:30 I even have my most energy of the day. Time to play and snag a couple of snacks while daddy prepares dinner for everybody, including me. After my evening walk, I buy a second wind and am up for play and more snacks. No wonder I’m a touch pudgy. Daddy should cut out numerous snacks, but I’ll never tell him that!
Then it’s time for a nap while daddies watch TV. the important sleep comes when the TV is off and therefore the lights are out. Pleasant dreams…
