i am a new maltese owner, and i was wandering if they sleep a lot? it seems like my maltese likes to sleep all the time. i am afraid something is wrong with her, but the vet says she is healthy except she is too thin for her age. which brings me to my other question. do maltese's eat a lot b/c i cant hardly get mine to eat anything. the vet says she needs to eat 4 times a day to get her weight up, but i cant get her to eat enough. is this normal for them to sleep a lot and not eat a lot? thank you.
