Oh goodness - keeping 3 five and a half month old puppies entertained, calm, separated, etc - it's a challenge let me state for the record.

The puppies are doing well - incision sites look fantastic, appetites are great and the cobwebs from the anesthesia are all but gone.  On the flip side - it was quite a long night.  Everyone was out of sorts and whiny and Charli wouldn't settle down.  I ended up sleeping on the bathroom floor in an effort to get her to settle and get some rest.

Today has been better than I thought.  I am rotating the pups between outside, inside in the living room and inside in the master bath.  I bought them fabric collars - they seem to be working well and are much more comfortable than the hard plastic cone we have used on Emma in the past.

All in all - its going pretty well.  It's going to be a long 10 days - that's for sure.
