We’re Baaaaaaaaaaaaack

We went to the vet. The receptionist kept me waiting, I think she was asleep on the job.




They removed the bandage. Everything was fine so they removed the stitches. We never saw the vet-the info on the vaccine isn’t in yet.


ALERT- Stop now if you’re squeamish.


Here’s the foot.









They were told to not put anything on it because it needs to breathe. I started to lick it which is a no-no and they tried putting bitter apple on the surrounding fur-not on the wound itself. That didn’t work.

  3. Oh no! The only solution is to fill the cone with green beans!

  4. Oh my Lee can look at anything and rarely gets sick. Why once the furs grows back you won’t notice it at all. I think it looks quite fine considering you are a week out. Kyla we like the Kong soft EZ collar http://www.kongcompany.com/products/for-dogs/grooming-and-recovery-collars/grooming-and-recovery-collars/ez-soft-collar/
    it was less stressful on us.
    Not selling the product just telling you it worked better for us.

  5. OH NO! The cone of shame….and it’s YOUR foot. It was icky looking, but SHE’d finished her croissant.

    At first we thought that CAT was at YOUR house. nearly gave us heart failure.

  6. Oh my Kyla I hope it does not hurt as bad as it looks. Like Sweet William says for only a week out it is heal fast. If only it was all better and you did not have to wear the cone but the cone will help with the healing.

  7. I’ve never had a dog that was stopped by Bitter Apple. They should call in Come and Lick. Cute receptionist.

  8. Okay, Ma scrolled REALLY fast past your footie cause she barfs at the sight of, well, anything gross, so she thanks you for the warning….didn’t want to ‘lose’ that last margarita!!! BOL
    Yeah, that bitter apple stuffs doesn’t work for me either, I just lick it like it’s candy.
    Wells, good things you make that cone look good!

    • I eat apple every day-that scent is gonna stop ME? No way. It’s like leaving the salt off the rim on a margarita and expecting you to not take a quaff.

  9. OMD…. ya got da cone. I told ya. Da good news is dat everyone will feel sorry for you now and you’ll get lots of treats.
    Happy bangin into things.

  10. Oh no they put the cone of shame on you, the humility. They can at least give you all the green beans you want.

  11. Tell your human I have a pretty big balance left on a Petsmart gift certificate that’s all yours to get a more comfy inflatable collar! Heck, I can pick one up for you tomorrow if your slave can meet me at the Circle K to get it after work. Love, Your Aunt Crazy Dog Lady.

  12. I had to wear dat Cone of Shame a couple years ago – it are terrible! And it makes it real hard to sniff stuff.

  13. Ugh, the cone. I’ll bet people keep walking up and trying out that old line about “super hearing”.

  14. So happy that bandage and stitches are gone! Not so happy you have to wear the cone. Not too long now, but we can’t calculate the time very well. Hope you are feeling much better 🙂

    Braeden and Seth

  15. Are the peeps keeping your sisters away from you? I know they will be happy to lick your foot for you, and then all of you will be cone heads


  16. You’re a trooper – hopefully it heals quickly!

  17. Glad to hear and see the foot is healing up — sorry about the cone of shame. It should be good for a few sympathy treats, though….

  18. Just think of that cone as another fashion statement! You’re adorable with or without it and with or without that damn toe! Now make Them spoil you!

  19. Oh Kyla…OMD…the cone of shame…what can we say. Your foot looks real eina (that is “ouch” in Afrikaans – pronounced “ay-nah”) Good luck with the CoS…hope you get to toss it soon.
    Wally & Sammy

    • It is icky, that’s pronounced ICKY in any language. We’re trying to find a good alternative but It’s tough getting one delivered at 22:45.

  20. Glad all is good except for the cone of shame but paws crossed you don’t have to wear for too long. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  21. I think it looks really good, Kyla. Can you go out without a bandage or have you to stay inside now for a while? I hope the time where you are your own loudspeaker is over soon. Even with that thingy, you are the most beautiful scottie lady, no ifs not butts.

  22. Oh, your poor little paw. And you poor little thing…having to wear the Cone of Shame.
    *Cairn cuddles*

    • We’re heading down to PetSmart to get something else.It’s the best PetSmart in the world because it is walking distance from PetSmart Corporate HQ and the peeps who run it had better be on their toes (there I go again-I’m trying to forget about toes).

  23. The cone of shame. Well, they have to do what needs doing so you don’t lick that. You’ll be fine.

    Have a woof woof day. My best to your mom. 🙂

  24. Oh no, the cone…Milk it for everything, especially those treats!!!!
