Puppy bedrest

We had Jersey spayed last Tuesday. By Sunday morning she wasn't healing well enough and the vet said to keep our 6 month old, 43 pound puppy, still for another 10 days. As her mommas, we haven't been diligent enough in restricting her movements and now we're being punished.
How do we keep her still?! She's on leash in the house and HATES us for it. She's been chewing on her elk antlers (fallen antlers, a bit easier on my vegetarian mind!), which the people at our favorite pet place told us would last for months (based on their pit bull's track record)-- she's finished hers in a week.
Wish us luck!


  1. Oh boy, that sounds challenging! Poor dog. Good luck!

  2. Yikes, that's worse than a cooped up toddler!!

  3. Poor dog is right and poor you two. Hope Jersey settles a little for you so she heals.
