Ready to Greet Visitors

It was a big day for Luna.  We had some visitors come to check in with Luna and wish her a speedy recovery.  I met Mary Pat and her greyhound Opal at the LGRA race the Saturday of her accident.  They brought her a Kong filled with chunky peanut butter which she devoured.  We really enjoyed talking greyhounds with Mary Pat and Luna enjoyed sniffing a fellow grey.  Opal not only is adorable, but she is sooooo soft.  Imagine petting a dog made of rabbit fur.  Soft.  She totally won Mike over because he let her climb up on the couch to take a nap.
Opal keeps a close watch on Luna.
Another reason Luna is sleeping soundly this evening is she can now sit up!  This is very exciting, and very stressful for Mike and me.  It is really hard to trust her to be safe alone in a room because she keeps trying to get up, but she doesn't have a lot of control.  I'm so scared she is going to crash onto the hardwood floors.  It may be time to put all her beds and crib mattresses together to make a safe zone.
Look how pretty she is!

It is really awesome that she is not only able to sit up, but she really wants to get up and move around.  Every time someone comes through the door she tries to get up and greet them.  Such a good host.  Every day she can do something new so who knows what she will come up with tomorrow.

Improvement with every update. Yay!!! Those cow-dogs are usually bunny soft.

That super soft fur is one of the things I love about Blueberry and Bunny, too! No matter how my day has gone, running my fingers over that fur makes me feel better.

I'm betting having company has made Luna feel a lot better! If nothing else, it's a distraction. Hopefully, she'll keep surprising you with her recovery! :)

She looks so good! It's wonderful to see her upright. I'm so happy she is doing so well! Do you think it would help if she wore some boots that gave her better traction on the floor or would that make things worse for her? It might really scare her. When Joey had his cast on, we put a sock on him that had some traction so that he wouldn't slide.

Great news! What a good girl. When Zephyr was just home and having trouble walking I worried because I have tile. I put rugs all over and said we lived in "World of Rugs". :-) She does look very beautiful.

She's looking GORGEOUS! I'm so glad to hear how well she is improving. Do you have an ex pen to restrict her movement? Coke on the bottom of pads can help a bit with traction (the sugar makes them sticky).
