    copper chiapoo chihuahua poodle mix puppy leanne wildermuth

    Our little dude, Copper, had some surgery last Friday. He’s been wearing this cone for a week – can you stand it? He’s been pitiful. The sound of scratching plastic has filled my ears and my head. Plastic scraping on the floor while Roomba Jr. tries to resume normal activities.

    I’ve slept with him on the couch, scratched his itches, and made sure his water dish was full enough so that his little tongue could reach beyond the cone.

    He looks at me with those big watery eyes as if he’s apologizing for spraying my pillow on his quest to dominate me in my home.

    Yes, well, I think he’s learned his lesson, don’t you? (Kidding, it’s been a week – his incision has healed enough. Not that I was trying to teach him a lesson – he learned that one fast and furiously the day I washed my bedsheets THREE TIMES.)

    Time to take the cone off…

    Oh I hate those things! They put one on Roscoe when he got snipped that was twice the size he was … he couldn’t even get in the truck with it on – let’s not even talk about his crate!

    hummm they never gave Lilly or Misty a cone when they were spade…Lilly was just glued back together…Misty had a bunch of metal ties on her.

    I hope that Copper doesn’t try to dominate your house anymore!

    I don’t allow any animal to come in my house with their reproductive stuff intact anymore. course it helps to adopt from places that take care of that before I see them too. ;)

    awww, poor thing.
    i always wonder if the dogs/cats you see going by are embarrassed that they are wearing one of those things. our dog was already spaded when we got her, so we missed seeing the comedy, i mean healing process!

    Oh, the bed! The pillow! For shame, Copper. For shame. He’s lucky you’re his mommy.

    That is such a great photograph it looks like one of your portraits! What a cutie!

    But… that’s why I don’t do male dogs… they like to mark.

    That is such a poignant, hilarious picture. Love the fluffy ears.
