For so many years, I was momma’s best boi (I still am, let’s be honest). But a few weeks ago, she brought home a new pup. She doesn’t have any hair on her body and only a little on her head, so I think this one is a hooman pup. That’s okay, though, because she is heckin’ cute.
My mom has been trying to get the tiny hooman to sleep for a few hours now and is just about ready to pull her hair out. I figured I’d try my paw at getting her down for a nap so I can help my mom a bit.
Okay, small hooman, the pup has taken over. Our mom needs a nap, so it’s time for you to go night nights. She looks exhausted!Little hooman, go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep.
There will be several squirrels outside when you wake up in the morning!My mother used to sing that to me when I was a young puppy. It was always effective and put me right to sleep! Maybe some facts about pups versus people may help her sleep?
Did you know that puppies require 18 to 20 hours of sleep per day? That’s slightly more than human babies, who typically sleep 12-16 hours per day.But I think this one is broken since she just won’t sleep!
That’s a massive yawn for such a small woman! Maybe my puppy facts are working? Hmm… let me think of some more interesting facts for this small tot.Oh! I know one (I only recently discovered this). Feeding is a significant distinction between puppies and tiny humans. Mother puppies will feed their offspring for up to six weeks before they are ready to move to their new homes or stay with their mothers.
Human newborns are unique, and my mother informed me that the doctor advised her to milk the small hooman for at least a year, ideally up to two years. That is much longer than pups!
Tiny hoomans also stay with their parents for longer. Us pups are ready for new homes around 8 weeks, but tiny hoomans will grow and stay with their parents until 18 years old (and sometimes they will stay with them for much, much longer).Ah, it looks like the little one is finally asleep. Sleep tight! Don’t let the squirrels bite!
