The cone of shame Vote for this post

Matilda has been very quiet since we came home from the vets last night, but she has stopped limping so will leave it on for a few days. I am sure she stepped on something while out walking and given people are always breaking bottles etc in the grass on the footpaths it could be either that or a sharp piece of stick or grass.

Hannah (below) was a quite regular wearer of the COS as she would lick her paws. She was most disgusted, banged into everything possible trying to get it off. Matilda is a bit more tolerant although I've caught her pawing at it. Thankfully Kelsi didn't need one.

Such cute pictures Diana. Maybe Matilda bruised her pad, I hope that's all it is.

Some people can be so uncaring... no - change that to downright stupid!! Never thinking of consequences to others when they break bottles or leave their garbage about, especially chicken bones... every time Casey and I would be at a rest stop on the highway, I'd get out of the car and check out the picnic tables before I'd get Casey out, seems there was always something of danger at one table or another.

Have you decided on a name for the new pup yet? I'm so envious... LOL

hugs, Theo

Izabella. I considered it for my first Westie but went with Kelsi and then around the time I got my 2nd I liked Hannah and then when it came to my 3rd I did a lot of research online and chose "Matilda" and for my 4th I decided I might as well use Izabella as who knows she may be my last. Plus I can shorten it in many ways. I've already done that with Matilda, she gets called Maddie a lot as Mattie was a bit harder to say.

I am always aware of food on the ground as people do drop bones but glass can be a little harder to spot especially when it's shattered in the grass. I'll have to work on getting her to walk on the footpath like Kelsi did, Hannah always wanted to walk on the grass and as much as I tried to dissuade her otherwise I felt it was a constant battle instead of an enjoyable walk.

I should be excited I guess but I was quite content with my 3 and of course had no idea I would end up with just Matilda.

She has stopped limping which is good, but will leave the cone on until Thursday in case she decides to start licking at it again. She seems less concerned about it than Hannah who did everything she possibly could to dislodge hers, she was grumpy too when she had to wear it. I've had to hide her tablets in cheese as she's harder to give meds to than the other 2.

They are both so cute sure hope the lamp shades come off soon. We bought a blow up ring when Moshe had surgery. Best investment we made. Moshe has had lots of surgery and it is still in great shape after lots of wearing. It closes with Velcro.
Hope they soon recover.
Love, Yoka,Moshe and Levi

I hope they don't have to wear the cones for much longer
Yoka, Sailor has a blow up collar, too
Much better than the cone.
He got it off him once and I simply
tightened up the collar and he never got out of it again

awwww....we hope Matilda is healing up quickly and she won't have to wear the cone for much longer.It's always a worry looking where to walk to keep our pups safe. We have sharp thorny plants in our area that can be blown on areas where we walk so it's always a concern and a good check over when we go out.

Thanks.

Yoka, I tried the inflatable one with Hannah but she could still reach and lick her paws little monkey so given Matilda is more determined than she is I will use the cone with her.
