Freddie is so lazy he was up this morning at 9 running around trying to fight us, he had his brekkie and then we went off in the car to get the shopping and he came with us he was on my lap playing away! we were up in our new house doing a few things and he was in his carrier, as there is too much that he can eat on the floor, but he was sitting looking at all of us! he had something to eat just before 3 and fell asleep with me on the sofa for about 30 mins, then he ran around and had a drink and is gone for another sleep!

he woke about twice during the night for the toilet and took awhile to go back asleep!
Is he just lazy after all the excitement, r should i be worried!

How old is he? Young pups do still need loads of sleep, especially if there has been a lot of exciting things happening. My boy is 9 months and still like to nap about 3 times a day. These are like energy boosts for them, and sometimes a chance for us to recover :lol:

Oh I hear you!! I have to laugh at Jake and Shelby though. They to into their crates at 9:00 and are let out for breakfast and potty at about 6:00. I can pretty guarantee you that they both will be taking morning naps by 7:00. Talk about lazy!! :D

Oh how I wish I could take as many naps as my dogs do!! With all that beauty sleep I'd probably look and feel 10 years younger! :lol:
