The Dog and Cone
on 2 December 2014
My Staffie is a little hero, he doesn't complain about anything and even in the face of horrible adversity (like having his nuts removed) he maintains a dignity even Gandhi would envy. But this cone was a step too far. He eyes went huge and round and he hung his head and shivered. Worse was to come because when I tried to adjust the fitting the hideous tearing noise the Velcro makes caused him to freak out and try his level best to claw the cone from his head, leaping and jumping around in the process. Not a good thing for an 18-hour post-op dog. To add insult to injury I couldn't have used it anyway because the loops are so small they wouldn't accommodate his collar, which is only 3/4 inch wide. Well, the collar just about went through with generous wiggling but the lead attachment and the buckle were nowhere near slim enough and so the thing was useless anyway. Not that it mattered in the end as I wouldn't have allowed him to get stressed out like that again.
Later, I tried to get him to wear my Calvin Klein underpants and whilst he looked undeniably sexy they were too big for him and gathered around his ankles when he walked around, like mine used to at parties. So now I'm just keeping an eye on him using the baby monitor to ensure he doesn't nibble at his nethers and by the look he gave me when I chucked his cone under the stairs, he thanks me for it.
