My 9-month old whippet is an incorrigible squirrel chaser–and today he paid the price. Dashing through the brambles in the woods this morning, he gashed his back leg in pursuit of his umpteenth squirrel. Anesthesia, stitches and the dreaded cone were his punishment, yet I somehow doubt he’ll learn his lesson. Poor guy, wearing this thing for a week is really going to cramp his style.
The quote of the day, of course, is from the Pixar movie “Up”:
Alpha: Now, you must wear the cone of shame.
Dug: [hangs head] I do not like the cone of shame.
