Is this normal?

I am home on vacation this week, so for the first time I get to spend a big chunk of time with Marley during the day. Well, he sleeps sooooooo much. I am sticking to the schedule of when he is home alone, except that he is crated no where near as much, and we get to play more. I am up at the same time, he eats at the same time, and to bed at the same time.

When he gets up, he is still yawning, but is energetic and plays. Then within about a half hour of eating, he is napping. Then he's back up and I take him out, play, half hour later, he is yawning to signal that he needs another nap. He's still sleeping 7 hours at night, so I would guesstimate he is sleeping about 18-20 hours a day.

Here's my question...do they really sleep this much at 4 months old? How much do these pups normally sleep?

My 6 month old puppy sleeps 11-12 hours a night with one short potty break in there. He then goes out in the morning for about an hour, eats, goes back out for about an hour and then comes in for a 2 hour nap. I make him go back out in the afternoon but it isn't too long (about 1-2 hours) and he is ready for another 2 hour nap. I was worried about him at first because he was always so sleepy, but he does play and plays hard when he is awake. He looks healthy and seems very happy so I am not worried anymore.
