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?|
|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'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...
Until next time!
No Sausage after all that?That is pawful Morrie,but at least the cone is gone,xx SpeedyReplyDelete
Hey there Speedy!Delete
No - no sausage as yet... but I'm giving mum my signature head bumps every night to remind her...
Thanks for your support through this rough time!
Lots of licks, your friend Morrie!
Can't believe there wan't a whole packet of sausages waiting ready to be hand fed to you after all the trials and tribulations with the cone and stitches and everything Morrie...ReplyDelete
PS Venison sausage are my favourite. One can imagine one hunted down the deer oneself.
Hey there Bertie - I know right?!Delete
I'm going to show mum your comment and make sure she understands that sausages are a non-negotiable...
PS the Venison sausages sound AMAZING!
I will add them to mum's shopping list..
YAY!!!! glad that cone of shame has gone butt...where's the sausages!!!!ReplyDelete
Loves and licky kisses

Thanks so much Princess Leah,Delete
And yes I feel so much better without the cone, now I'm just waiting for my hair to grow back!
I am so happy that you're cone-free again, Morrie Major☺ You definitely need a celebratory sausage!ReplyDelete
Thanks Molly - I've added sausages to mum's shopping list coz she seems to keep forgetting.Delete
Hopefully this weekend she will finally get them to me :)
First, as we have been away we missed the incident that landed you in the cone. We are sorry it happened, and thrilled to see the cone is gone and you are free and on the mend!ReplyDelete
Hi there Hailey, Zaphod and their Lady!Delete
I really appreciate your thoughts! Yes it was a bit of a rough time but gee it feels good to be cone-free!!!
Morrie that is the most pawesome news EVER!! We are soooooo happy for you and so proud that you were so brave! Now, stay away from tennis balls!!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota DakotasDenReplyDelete
Thank you Dakota! I'm glad you agree that I was very brave, mum keeps saying that I was just very silly...Delete
But I'll have to see whether I stay away from tennis balls, they still look very tempting to me!

Woos - Lightning and Misty
Hey there Lightning and Misty,Delete
I am so happy all my friends have helped me through this!
I am telling mum to hurry up with that sausage she promised!!
We are so glad you're feeling better and have gotten rid of that silly cone! Hope you get lots of sausages now!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for your thoughts - it feels wonderful to be cone free again!Delete
Now I can run and play without it getting in the way...
That is fantastic news. We are so pleased our prayers have been answeredReplyDelete
Oh that's so kind of you! Would you mind praying for a sausage for me as well? I really love sausages...Delete
I'm so grateful to all my friends for helping me through this rough time,
Condogulations on being cone-free at last, Morrie! Keep head-butting your mommy until she turns loose of that sausage!!ReplyDelete
Hee Hee! What a great idea Hershey! I will definitely keep head-bumping her until she produces this sausage.Delete
It's not fair to talk about sausages and then not give me one...
Wow it's so good to see you, we missed ya.ReplyDelete
Glad you are feeling much better now.
Sausage is good anytime of the day right?
It was so good to get so many messages from my friends during this rough time.
I will definitely post a photo when I get this sausage!!!
Great news! Bet it feels great and that sausage better be coming!ReplyDelete
Hazel & Mabel
Thanks Hazel and Mabel,Delete
It really is great news and thank you for sticking with me during this tough time...
I agree with you that I'd better be getting a sausage soon!!!
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.)ReplyDelete
Hee hee! Yes sausages are much cheaper than the vet bill mum paid... I might point that out to her!Delete
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!
You can get good TV and wi-fi connections with the cone we are told.ReplyDelete
Hee hee! That's very funny.. I should have tried that!!Delete
Holy smokes Morrie! We are just catching up on your tennis ball ordeal. What a Terrier thing to do! We are super glad that they got that thing outta you and you are going to be okay❤️. Don't do that again, it's hard on the folks 😉ReplyDelete
yes mum was a bit stressed through the whole thing (I still don't really know why), but I've promised her I'll be sticking to the real food stuffs from now on!
i'm so glad the cone is no more. that's the best news i've heard all day.ReplyDelete
now just remember that tennis balls are NOT food and you'll be fine.
happy wags, bailey unleashed
I'm still a bit tempted by tennis balls I must admit but mum is trying to distract me with treats and "edibles" which is even better!
