Puppy Siesta
Time for Archer’s Puppy Siesta!

Siesta noun

  1. a midday or afternoon rest or nap, especially as taken in Spain and Latin America.

Puppies love siestas!  I love siestas!  Therefore by the transitive property (learned in high school Geometry class) I must be a puppy (raiser)!  Yeah, sorry none of that really makes sense.  Plus you know anything I pull from my high school days must to be bunk.

Anyhow, I do have to say I love my siesta as much as Archer (if not more) and I also love him giving me a little break from his cray, cray puppy behaviors.  Honestly he’s a very good puppy and Raven (our Golden Retriever) takes the brunt of his puppy zoomies.

In the early days under the couch or ottoman was his favorite puppy siesta spot, but today he doesn’t fit underneath quite as well so he’s now more comfortable in his favorite doggy bed.

Speaking of puppies and siestas this brings back memories (nightmares) of my first few weeks with Stetson.  Back when he was a puppy the only time I had a chance to sleep was during his siestas because at night he just wanted to bark, cry, whine, howl 🙁  If you haven’t already, take a look back at my puppy, Stetson’s first night at home.

What about you guys?  Do you get a good nap in during your pup’s siestas?  Where is your pup’s favorite place to take a siesta?  Tell us all about your puppy in the comment section below.

    1. Puppies are fun, but I think they are more fun to just visit. I was at the Guide Dog school the other day and they were doing socialization with some of the little ones probably only about 5 weeks old…that looked fun!

  1. Every time I see a picture of Archer, I just want to reach out and hug him! He’s so adorable. Puppies can be exhausting, so I would definitely take advantage of naptimes too, lol!

  2. My mom usually cuddles up on the floor with puppies during their siesta time. That way, they learn to cuddle, both get a short nap in, and if the puppy gets up, she knows. Cute photo!
