Red face How much do Chi's normally sleep?

Mirabelle is our first dog and she seems to sleep a lot, so I was wondering if this is normal. I normally work from home, and she sleeps all night (7-8 hours), and as soon as my wife leaves for work (about 8AM), she runs to the bed and goes back to sleep. She usually sleeps until about noon, eats and then naps off and on the rest of the day. She perks up about five PM and is generally active (and eats again) in the evening.

She is almost 11 months old and weighs 1 pound 14 ounces, so she is tiny, but she goes to the vet regularly and as far as I know is in good health.

How does this sleep pattern compare with other Chi's?

toby is almost two and he still sleeps alot. In fact he sleeps more now than he did when he was a baby. I think he might just be spoiled and lazy tho!!

I think if my lap was available round the clock, that's how much these guys would sleep.

I think dogs sleep more than cats and cats sleep a LOT! lol Probably best described as a dognap.

But, a dog can be sound asleep snoring and dreaming in lala land... if the doorbell rings or if the ice cream man, postman, UPS truck, FedEx truck, water meter reader goes by... guess who is up and yapping at the window.

It's amazing how dogs can quickly be 'on guard'. Once the 'emergency' is over, back to lala land. Until the next episode!

That's exactly how much Yoshi sleeps, unless I am actively keeping her awake by taking her to the park or somewhere she can't sleep. Left to her own devices though, that's exactly what she's like.
