Why Do Dogs Sleep So Much?

Dogs are nappers, not sleepers. They are also unemployed. We give them free food and free housing. Good dogs are pampered, while noble dogs, little dogs, and all the other dogs are catered. Dogs sleep so much because humans are domesticated. The first wolf found the first human and cashed in on his biped. A few hundred thousand years later and we’re all standing in the dog food aisle worried about grain or grain-free and if our dog will like the taste of sustainably caught salmon more than grass-fed buffalo.
