Some of you have probably seen my thread in health issues. If so you know Coco is recovering from some pretty major surgery she had on Friday. Today is the last day of school so the rest of the week (three days) my kids will be home with her while DH & I are at work before they are busy with other activities. They are 14 & 10. I am kind of nervous about them paying attention and doing what they are supposed to for her. I probably shouldn't doubt my kids, they love her and I know they are capable but I'm still nervous. I am terribly over protective of her and I feel like I need to wrap her in bubble wrap.. At this point the vet said that it's okay for her to walk around the house but she is not to be jumping on or off the furniture, taking the stairs unnecessarily and MUST ALWAYS be on a leash when she's going outside. Here's my dilemma, do I just reiterate the instructions and let it go or do you think I should make them leave her in the crate during the day? I haven't completely decided what to do and just wondered what you guys thought.
