Should have named him Sleepy

While we spent the weekend in Rhode Island, Hamilton spent the weekend with our friends, The Alexanders and their two huskies, Fiama and Fuego.

And he's been sleeping ever since we picked him up! We brought him home around 7:45pm on Sunday evening, he put himself to bed at 8pm. We tried to wake him up to play with him a few times, but he wanted none of it. He slept until we woke him up at 8am on Monday morning.

from 8am to 8:30 he went for a walk, took care of business, and ate breakfast. At 8:45am he went back to sleep and didn't wake up until 11am.

Awake long enough to go outside, then back to sleep until late in the afternoon. Again put himself to bed around 8:30pm and slept until 8:30am. He did wake up at 11pm, wanted to be taken outside, then put himself right back to bed.

This continued through today - the dog has done absolutely nothing for two full days!! it is like a preview of what is to come when he is a stinky old basset, but for now I am torn between deep gratitude to the Alexanders and missing my puppy!

I'm sure that over the next few days he'll come back to normal and I'll long for the days when he just slept

  1. Oscar does that every time he comes back from the farm. We call it puppy coma.
