labrador tales

A dog and his cone

dog and his cone
Our dog had surgery and he was really sad. He had to wear a giant cone for 10 days. All his favorite places were hard to negotiate. He was so confused. At first he would just stand in one place with his head hanging down. So pitiful!!

He soon figured out how to use the cone as a tool, pushing us around the house like is was a front loader. You had to be especially careful going out the back door. "Waaaaait!!!!"

By the end the cone was all dented up. I had to clean it two times a day because it was always full of slobber.

Both of us were so happy to go back to the vet and get his stitches out so he could be cone free.
