Any ideas for dealing with playful puppy?

I am scheduled for a TAH/BSO on June 9, 2003. My main concern for my post-op recovery at home is our dc's (darling canines). We have a greyhound mix, a pug, and a 9 month old Border Collie.

The concern stems from the fact that the big border collies job every morning is to run into our bedroom and leap onto me and kiss me awake.

Now I know that I can keep the door shut, but we also have an 8 year old DS who may forget to keep the door closed. My tummy muscles just tense up when I imagine Pepper leaping onto my future incision!

Anyone elso have this issue? Any suggestions, recommendations, thoughts on the subject would be greatly appreciated.

Any ideas for dealing with playful puppy?

Hi Diana --

We had two dogs when I had my hyst and one was a young puppy.

I kept a pillow on my tummy and tried to teach the puppy that the pillow was "NO" meaning she wasn't supposed to get on it.
It wasn't completely successful but at least when she did land on me it didn't hurt. She got me pretty good once when I wasn't expecting it and used my tummy for a springboard to jump off the brought tears to my eyes, so you'd be wise to put some kind of plan into action when you get home from the castle.

I was concerned about the same thing as you. My older dog sensed right off that something wasn't right about me and was very gentle and caring and didn't leave my side for two weeks. But the younger one was such a baby at the time that she wasn't aware of anything but herself and her need to play!

Good luck to you --

I have a Greyhound that sounds like your pup, what about putting a puppy gate in the doorway, that way your dog can see you?? For some reason my Emma new I was hurting and is doing good. We also have a Pug "Onie" but she is blind, I have to herd her using my back scratcher and she can get under-foot, poor nanna is creaping up in age. Best of luck 's

Hi Diana
I too have a dog black lab that also jumps on the bed. Thanks for the thought. I am having a TAH/BSO and this was one thing that I haven't laid awake at night thinking about. The pillow sounds like it worked pretty good. Maybe with my dog being 8 years old she will sense something is wrong. I am also open to any suggestions.

playful pups and pillows

Hi Diana...I too, worried about my dog, who only weighs 9 lbs., but LOVES to jump on my lap, and cuddle with me, whether on a chair, or in our bed. I had to use a pillow, and really felt that I couldn't say no to her, after all, she is so spoiled, and for the 5 years of her life, so far, she is allowed to pretty much rule the house. She got used to the pillow, and also, was sensing to be more gentle around me. My surgery recovery went well, and now I don't even hold my tummy when I sneeze. Yahoo !! Did you know that you and I live in the same town ? Not sure if you got my email, please let me know. I know your surgery date is soon, and I'll be praying for you. xo Linda

Hi Diana,

I had a similar issue, but with my cats. I was worried about the cats jumping on my tummy, and I also had a catheter for a week after I got home and was afraid that the kitties might think it was an excellent cat toy! My husband and I decided to check them into the "Pets Hotel" for a week after I got home from the hospital. For us, this worked out perfectly. Maybe a friend could look after your dogs for a week or so? Good luck to you!

Thanks for all of the suggestions! I bought a big body pillow today, so hopefully that will come in handy in the bed. One thing we thought of today is to schedule our pup for her "operation" (snorfle)- maybe if she has an incision she won't be so jumpy. We could recover together! LOL!

Linda- got you email, I will try to respond tonight!
Ding- Oh, poor little onie! Have you read the book about Clara the pug?

Hmmmm- what is a snorfle? I meant to type, snorfle. I guess it's time to stop and go to bed!

Hi Spokane sister

I was happy to hear from you Diana. If you would rather call me, my home phone is *******. For some unknown reason, I am suffering from a left side temple headache, and have had it for the past 2 weeks. I had a CAT scan last week on it, and guess it shows normal, but, even with drugs ordered, I still continually have it. I am going to lay down for an hour, and see if a little shut eye will help. Hope we will talk later. If email is more comfortable for you, that's fine too. I liked your suggestion about having your dog snorfleed too, and someone who monitors this site,also retyped my word to that snorfle thing too - what's wrong with using the correct word ? Hmmm, well, until next time.
Hugs and prayers, Linda xo
