We really do ask a lot of our dogs. Not only are they on duty protecting the house from murderous squirrels and treacherous UPS delivery people 24/7, but it has now apparently fallen upon them to care for the weird-smelling human puppies that we bring home from god knows where periodically. If these faithful dogs don't haphazardly sort of cover them up with blankets and lull them to sleep, who will? It's a lot of responsibility!
No wonder they have to sleep 18 hours out of the day.
