Camping at Home

Thank goodness I bought a new air mattress this past summer because we've been using it every night.  Our bedrooms are upstairs and there is no way I am carrying her up and down those stairs just to go to bed.  It is too risky.  Until Luna can navigate the stairs safely with our help, we are camping in our living room.  The room gets pretty cold at night so we have added an electric blanket to our pile of three to four blankets.  Luna also gets bundled up at night just in case she gets cold.
Can you spot Luna?
It is hard to sleep on the air mattress every night so Mike and I take turns.  I enjoy sleeping in my own bed because I'll get a better night's sleep, but I do like falling asleep next to Luna.  When I was in 4-H my dog club would host a sleepover at the 4-H center for members and their dogs.  We would stay up late training our dogs, playing games, and getting to know each other.  When it was lights out we would settle down with our puppies next to us (ok, some of us would stay up).  Sleeping next to Luna in the living room reminds me of how much fun I had at those sleepovers with Eris.  It's kind of nice to spend some bonding time with Luna.
Luna is all tucked in.
Goodnight Moon...I mean, Luna.

That looks pretty cozy, I'm bet Luna loves having you sleep with her. The 4-H sleepovers sound so fun.

I carried Beth up and down the stairs for the year we had her. My wife didn't trust herself too. With 10 dogs currently in the house, we will be pulling out the air mattress, so we can all sleep downstairs. Tell Luna she has started a new fad :)

I bet she loves the camping at home. She does look nice and comfy. I hope you are all back in your regular bed soon.

Luna looks adorable all bundled up, but it looks like her little butt might get cold! :) Bunny loves sleeping under our blankets with us. I'm glad you're taking such good care of Luna!

I had to look hard to find her in that one photo! Such a sweet girl. Keep getting better, Luna and stay warm.

Get well soon Luna! I had the same routine with my galgo 2 years ago, he was injured in a freak accident (he got stuck jumping out of a boarding kennel during a storm) and ended up with a massive wound and septic shock. I am a vet tech and was (fortunately) able to care for him at home. 24 hours for 3 weeks in between school semesters. He is doing fine now, greys are tough! I hope Luna continues to heal. You are taking wonderful care of her!
