Luna is settling in quite well. It’s been three weeks since she joined us. I had forgotten how relentless they are in the puppy stage. All Luna wants to do is play and wrestle. Poor Gypsy get the brunt of it. Simba is now 14 years old. The old girl has slowed down quite a bit in the last year or so. Luna somehow knows this and does not bother Simba with her rough-housing. However, it’s Simba that she tends to want to cuddle next to for a nap. Gypsy, who is 7 years old now, has also slowed down not due to age but weight gain and laziness. Simba has always been a grazer and never has been all that interested in food. She is more interested in treats than eating her food. Gypsy on the other hand, eats everything in sight. She devours her food and then will happily volunteer to eat Simba’s food too. With Simba not playing as much Gypsy has been putting on weight, even though I have been keeping Simba’s food away from her. The vet has her on prescription food and now Luna is making her move more. Although, most of the interaction with Luna is while she’s laying, I’m hoping she will begin to run around with her more as she drops the weight and gets her cardio back. When Luna plays with Gypsy, she makes all these strange noises which make her sound like a wild animal. After looking at the pictures of them playing, I realized she could definitely stand in for a velociraptor between the sounds that come out of her, the intensity in her play, and the look on herd face.
