'NOT' MY KIND OF EASTER BONNET


Sporting head paraphernalia
or in this case neck paraphernalia
just isn't what I expected this spring.


Conehead / Coneneck
(be kind OK!)


With all this being said ~
I'm very good with all the rigmarole involved


The plastic tabs connecting the cone are a pain in the butt
(which has a double entendre)
but I stand so very still,
treats work well with this problem.


While I sport my temporary Conehead
Jim sports his handmade socks
made by a friend's Mom,
nice and warm they are.


Such is my life for awhile 
just a giant cone 
with a loving Doodle
waiting to be released.


Right now I rest and snooze
waiting for my infected lady parts to heal.
I may not like the Conehead look
but I do sense it's supposed to be a good thing!

    1. I am so bemuddled
      and befuddled
      not wanting to wear
      this cone on my hair
      so I'll sleep
      thinking of necklaced sheep
      just to make me feel better!

  7. We're sorry, Sophie. Emma once had a cone. She ran into me with it. When it hit the backs of my legs, it hurt! Franklin feels bad for you, but he hopes he never has a cone.

    Love,
    Janie and Franklin

    1. The infection has been hanging on far too long so Mr. Cone had to visit!!

      Glad you like the socks!!!!

  9. Oh Sophie, what a shame the bonnet is not a pretty one. When our cat Poppy had one, I needed to take it off so she could eat, unless I hand fed her, then the struggle as she hated it going on again. Never mind, Easter treats might be waiting for a good girl. Hugs to all, Jean.

  17. Oh, Sophie you look soooo sad. We do enjoy seeing you and the guys running on the beach and walking on the lovely trails near your home, I bet you are missing that, but you probably don't want all your pals to see you like this. Get well soon, Toby and Mick (mom sometimes calls me "the devil dog" because I'm a real handful (hahaha). She would never get one of those things on me!!!!

    1. Oh you "Devil Dog, You" ~~ I tried to run but I live in a small house and that means I can't get very far, so they got me just like that!!!!

      On with the Cone, put it snugly around my neck and go lie down!!

      Aaarghhh!

  18. Samson Says: When I had to wear one of those, it wasn't a see-through. So I bumped into everything. I know it's no fun, but you are such very good and patient girl that I'm sure you will soon feel much better. I was sick for three days, didn't eat, mommy freaking out, my tummy talking back. This morning, I finally feel better and ate my breakfast. Hope I avoided a vet visit. Have a good day and rest with you daddy. You will soon feel much better. Your Samson.

    1. Oh Samson we understand each other all the time it seems!

      I sure hope your sickie stomach wasn't too bad for you, because there's nothing worse than feeling nauseous and miserable.

      I think eating your brekkie is a sure sign of "the worst is over"!!

      YAY

  22. Dear Sophie, you might want to get your dads to look into inflatable collars. Look sorta like a cervical collar that's spoz'd to prevent you from getting at stitches. It's made by Kong and is called the Kong Cloud. My mom put one on me after I got stitches on my leg. All the best, Trey Bubbles Parker in Nova Scotia
