Cone free!

Hi there my fab-pack!

As you all know, it's been a tough time for me recently, after an unexpected encounter with a tennis ball ended with me in emergency surgery.

Drugged up and checked out :(

But, after a good week of sulking, refusing to move, and doing everything I can to get myself out of the horrid Cone of Shame...

Things finally started to look up -

Mum stopped giving me the nasty tablets, and told me I could take the stupid plastic cone off, if I was a "good boy" and "stopped being such a sausage."

I love sausage, so I decided to show her that I was well again, and ready for cone removal.

Firstly, I showed her that I could walk outside on my own, and even discovered that I enjoyed getting some fresh air.

Mmm, that fresh air tastes good....but where's the sausage?

I also stopped sleeping all day, and led my self to the front gate - proving I was ready for our usual walks.

Just working on my tan... where's the sausage?

And, with a bit of practice, I slowly got better at moving around in my cone.

In fact, I even got back to my usual day-job of patrolling the perimeter of my property!

It's just a shame those stupid trees kept getting in my way :(

Best of all, I convinced mum that I needed to be hand-fed.

She's a sucker like that...

Truth be told, I was actually getting used to my cone, and I'd started to accept that maybe I'd be a cone-head forever.

But then the day I'd been dreaming of suddenly arrived.

Papa suggested a "short walk" and I was more than happy to oblige - 

Where are we off to papa?
When we arrived at the vet, I was hesitant.

Last time I came here I ended up being a cone-head...

But you won't believe what happened...

Not only did the vet take out my funny purple stitches....

But she TOOK OFF the Cone of Shame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My cone-free ride home
 It was so liberating!

It's hard to describe the feeling of being cone-free again... but I am so, so happy.

When mum got home she took me for a celebratory play at the park...

So happy

BUT...


I am still waiting for that sausage.

Hmmmm....

Until next time! 

"...because there's nothing minor about being a Morris..."

      No - no sausage as yet... but I'm giving mum my signature head bumps every night to remind her...

  13. Congratulations on losing the cone....even if you were tricked into a Vet visit! If your pawrents would give you more sausage, you might stay away from tennis balls...just sayin'. (Sausages are cheaper, too.)

    1. Hee hee! Yes sausages are much cheaper than the vet bill mum paid... I might point that out to her!
      I did feel a bit tricked into the vet visit but when I got the cone taken off I didn't mind one bit!
      Thanks to you and all my friends for sticking with me during this rough time!
