Update on the puppies

Luna and Topper are both doing very well after their surgeries. In fact, Topper is doing so well that it's hard to follow doc's orders to keep him from running and jumping. He simply doesn't seem to be affected by the stitches at all. We are keeping him on a leash in the yard, but indoors he's just plain ol' Topper as usual. He's having a really hard time figuring out why he's getting in trouble for trying to wrestle with Luna.

Luna is not quite as chipper, but, then, she had a relatively long incision and has staples in addition to the sutures. She's resting more than Topper, but doesn't seem to be too bothered about the stitches and staples for now. She doesn't want to wrestle, though, which makes Topper bark a lot.

Both are on pain meds until next week some time.

Topper has been ignoring Doctor's orders for a few days now and is running around as if nothing has changed. Luckily, he hasn't pulled stitches despite chasing after baby bunnies in the yard.

Luna is still on restrictions, and she rebelled against it yesterday by escaping out the back door and running around the back yard. She did NOT want to come inside, either.
She paid a bit of a price for that escapade, though, by being somewhat sore before her bed time medicine dose.

The downside for Luna is that she doesn't get to play outside. The upside for me is that she is very snuggly and wants to be with me as much as possible. That's a downside for Emma, because she wants the prime spot, and Topper wants to be there, too. I definitely need a bigger chair!
