I refuse to let this cone thing get in the way of my relaxing! Although it takes up half the bed - I can still make it fit!

I had my first post-surgery followup visit this morning. There's good news and bad news.
The good being that I am healing well. The bad - stitches (and cone) must stay in place for 3- AND A HALF WEEKS. I thought it was 3. Mom was hoping for 2 - but the truth is 3-1/2 it is.

The best news - the vet gave me permission to go swimming over Labor Day weekend! Mom just has to dry my ears well (and flush them out of course) - and put the cone back on - but I still get to go swimming. I'm hearing rumors of Cape Cod - or a country Lake House. Either way - paddle up boys - I'm going swimming!

That's the spirit. Go on vacation and enjoy no matter what. I'm glad you're healing and sorry you're stuck in that cone for so long, but it'll be over...eventually.

lotsa licks, Lola

That sounds good to know you get to go on vacation and swim!! The time in the cone will be over before you know it. For now, it looks like you are making the best of the situation in your bed! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Poor doggies with cones. Between you and the OP Pack I feel terrible!

Has your mom looked at the other kind of 'cone collars'? There are a bunch of different kinds that are available.
