Megan, Kubrick just turned 5 months last week, so he is only a little younger than Jillee. It seems pretty normal to me because he has a lot of energy but when I'm off at work I know he sleeps almost the whole time (I've taped him) and that's at least 5 hours. However, even if I'm not working, he loves to take naps during the day. I'm usually on my computer and he's usually sleeping either next to me or on the floor. He will get up every hour or so to play but then he plops down again. It's funny because when we take him on long walks (yesterday we were gone for 3.5 hours - with breaks but lots of walking and going to the dog run) he will immediately fall asleep when we come home so that he sleeps pretty much the same amount whether or not he gets a lot of exercise that day. I think that if I had a second dog he might sleep less, but since he is VERY active, I don't worry about him sleeping that much. Plus, I do think it's normal as the vet mentioned to me that they should sleep quite a bit during the day.
Of course, Kubrick has been this way since I first got him, so I haven't noticed anything different in him... if Jillee has changed her habits altogether then it might be that something is bothering her. I'm not sure, though.
