The State of Things

So mom was really hoping that once the stitches came out I'd be cone free.   They came out after 2 weeks.  However the center of the wound couldn't be stitched and we just have to wait for the skin to grow back.  Apparently I heal slow! :-(     They say it's less than half the size it was when we started so we are getting there it's just taking time.  So you will likely see me like this for at least another week or so.



The one upside of all of this is that the treats come regularly! 

Wags!

  2. I'm very glad that you're getting regular treats to try to comfort you in this most difficult time. I'm still so very sad to see you all in the cone and everything, but treats and love and stuff do help.

    lotsa licks, Lola

  4. You sure do heal slow... but we are very impressed by your patience! Guess the cookies are a big help in that department.

  6. I guess the Cone of Shame is okay if it doubles as the Cone of Treats.

  8. Okay...tell us the truth. Are you healing slow on purpose just so you can get extra treats and so your mom and dad will feel sorry for you? If so, I thinks it's BRILLIANT!

    Hope you get feeling all better soon, though, so that stupid cone can come off once and fur all!

  11. OH no! I just read about your battle wound! How awful...I can't imagine being subjected to the cone, but you seem to be handling it quite well. What a brave dog you are. I hope you feel better soon, but milk it for all the treats you can get. :) Congrats to your Mom for the half-marathon...that's awesome!

    Kisses,
