I often think about how bored dogs must get. They can’t do most of the things we humans do to pass the time, like read books, surf the internet, watch television etc.
Apart from time spent going on walks with their owners, dogs can do little else to pass the time than sleep.
Come to think of it, sleeping more wouldn’t be a bad way for us humans to better pass our free time. We would dream more, and consequently multiply the chances of having interesting dreams that we could analyse, thereby understanding ourselves better.
Sleeping more, we would also have less time to make trouble for others; and those others, if they slept more, would have less time to make trouble for us.
Our society would be the more peaceful for this.
Sleeping dogs have much to teach us.
