Question about Lacey :)
I have a question about my yorkie Lacey, She sleeps alot of the day and I was wondering if this is normal she will be 4 months old next week. She does get up and eat and she will play around for 20-30 mins. but then its right back to sleep. I'm sure its just because she is still a puppy, but I thought I would just ask to be sure. Also If is she sleeping alot because she is still young, will she become more active with age?
Brittany Loves Lacey!!

Don't worry.... The average dog sleeps 12 to 14 hours a day - house dogs more.
Puppies really do sleep a lot - then when they get older they sleep less for a while -- and then as they get older, they begin sleeping more.
We should worry about this - we should envy them!!!!
If you can get up with your dog and spend the entire day doing interesting things with him - he'll stay up and be active and love doing it. But, most of our dogs are left on their own for hours ever day to find things to entertain themselves, and a great deal of their sleeping is just because they have nothing more exciting to do.
A Yorkie is worth a thousand words.

As everyone else has said, this is normal for a puppy. Twinkie is over a year old and she sleeps about 20 hrs a day! (She's sooooo lazy!)
