The Ricardos have kept me busy this last week, so I had a bit of a delay in editing this little video I took of them right after Lucy got her stitches out.
I know it seems a little crazy that they didn't see each other for 2 whole weeks due to their spaying and neutering surgeries, but our vet advised me to keep them from running hard and jumping. If you could see how excited they usually are when they're together, you might understand why the separation was necessary.
Also, I tend to keep them separated quite a bit for training purposes anyway. They both love one on one time with me, and they both (thankfully!) like their crates. So being apart isn't as terrible as it might be for some dogs that are used to always being together.
I just wanted Lucy and Ricky to be safe, and I figured keeping them apart while they healed up was the best way to do that. So I beg of you, please don't report me to the SPCA!
