POEM #12- Sleepy Guy

" Although puppies are little bundles of energy, they usually sleep 18-20 hours a day."

Today's poem is a golden shovel. 

"Señor Sleep"
That first month or two, although 
I play hard and long, my mom soon discovers that puppies 
sleep a lot. Actually, she learns that puppies are 
sleeping machines. In mom's office, I curl myself into a little 
ball on top of her teacher bag, dreaming that I am snuggled with bundles 
of brothers and sisters, enormous piles of 
puppies. I greet at CaPR graduation, but only have enough energy
to be my cute puppy self for about fifteen minutes, then they
have to be content taking pictures of me asleep by the graduation sign for the next three hours. Usually 
I go with mama to all her teacher workshops; I play until the keynote starts, then sleep 
until it's time for the next meal. Weekends, my schedule is eat, bother Star and sleep, over and over, 18-20 
hours a day. People regularly comment on how many hours 
I sleep, I think they do not understand
guy like me sleeps because he is growing  his way into his big feet every day.

That is A LOT of sleep. Our dog is 2 years old now and still sleeps considerably. He loves to spend his evenings just lounging by the couch.

That's one sleepy puppy.

I always thought that that's when the growth most happens, too. Lovely to write this one for puppy Rooney!

This poem makes me want to take a nap. Growing into those feet is a big job!
