Every dog I’ve ever come in contact with is extremely high energy. Every time. I knew a dachshund that piddled a little puddle every single time he saw me, which was every other day for two years! Of course, dogs have downtime, they’re not robots, but for the most part, they’re full of beans! What other animal runs back and forth, back and forth, back and forth, back and forth for hours fetching the same ball over and over again? How many times have I opened the door to a friend’s house only to be ambushed by an extremely happy and eager dog? And, on how many occasions have I been the designated dog walker only to get walked by the dog, instead? Countless! Every time! Dogs have boundless supplies of energy, I don’t know how they do it. I’m convinced they have secret reserves!
Take this poor pooch, Max the yellow lab, as an example. It seems like he is having one heck of a lazy day. He must have had a tough week! He’s absolutely bedridden, or is he?
