They took pity on me. My friends at RanchRunaMuck indicated that there’s something better out there. We went to PetSmart this morning and I got an inflatable collar-NO MORE CONE! This was in the store where we adopted Kali in January-no, they don’t sell puppies there, but they lend out space to rescue organizations. The rescue lady from whom we got Kali thought the inflatable collar was a terrific idea. The rescue people use it themselves. We bought one and the rescue lady put it on and we came home.
With the cone, I had a problem drinking water. With this it is easy peasy
It’s so much better that Kali is begging to wear one.
It cost about $30US and has one drawback. It has a white label. Now everyone is going to think that my name is “Medium” and that I was “Made in China”. We’ll let you know how it works and if it is terrier proof.
so glad to see you in good spirits and on the mend, my furiend!
Edgar and his mum
This is going to make the hours pass by a lot quicker. I gave up the countdown.
Much better than the cone of shame. Get better soon.
The collar of Fame?
I say BRAVO! I gots a collar that is super duper wide that pretty much does the same thingie…so much betters than the cone!! Honestly, the cone kinda freaks me out! When I bark, I thinks there are like a whole pack of Airedales around that I can’t see!
Anyhu, You look FABulous! Maybe your peeps can cover the ‘Medium’ with a patch with your name! Oh, and maybe change the ‘made in China’ to ‘made in Mexico’!
Get to a healin’ gurl!
That is so cool Medium I mean Kyla Bawahwhhahwhaa Glad you are on the mend girl 🙂 xxoxxxx
Mollie and Alfie
My spirits are much better with this.
ÌHecho en México! Dame una margarita rápidamente, por favor.
That is good to know that there is a better why to keep from licking on something that you should leave alone. Glad there are lots of friends around with helpful ideas . Heal fast Kyla.
I heal but I don’t heel.
BOL…. “medium” and “made in china”.
It’s getting worse. Some man just offered me ten if I could help him contact his dead grandmother. When I told him I couldn’t, he muttered something about false advertising.
Looks so much better than that cone of shame. Hopefully, you won’t even need that thing for long.
We’re looking at Friday morning to be safe.
What a great idea, you’re such a trendsetter
It wasn’t my idea, but I’m sharing it so everyone knows that it is available.
How about a new tag that says “MADE IN MEXICO!”, Oh how that paw coming along?
The Mad Scots
Oops, just saw you older posts, WOW, that sure did look bad, “Bites threw up, ME us girls are tough, glad to here all is going go, will check back like Friday! Bites and Dad are off to Lou-wesie-banana for another race event!
You mean YOU don’t get to go? I thought that the drivers liked having hot babes around.
That is pretty cool…and wayyyyy much better!!!! Great news Kyla!!!!
It’s not perfect, but after that cone it’s heaven
I’m lucky to never have had to use a cone on either of my dogs, but most people I know have been singing the praises of the inflatable collars over the traditional cone.
I am a lot happier with the inflatable. I am resourceful and was caught licking my foot-once with the cone and once with the inflatable.
That’s way better than the cone of shame. Way better. 🙂
That’s no joke.
I think you got a twofer it works as a cone plus a floatation device.
Aroo to you,
Now, if I could only find a body of water here in the desert, I could test it out. Bur not until it is healed-I still can’t get it wet.
Yeah Kyla! Unless you ever get an eye boo boo, in which case this collar is of no use, you will never again be made to wear the cone of shame!
The marvels of modern technology. It is a life preserver. Thanks for the tip.
You we made in Mexico! Glad you went with one of the easier things around her head.
Sweet William The Scot
Ruby told me that you can’t drink margaritas with a cone-something had to be done.
Well, dat looks better. Hope nobody calls ya Medium.
Nobody’s tried to call me anything yet. Then again, I haven’t appeared in public with it.
BOL- it’s like kiddie water wings for dogs! Good job sneaking in a lick. I won’t tell anyone!
oxoxxxxxx(extra kisses for your owie)
Sneaking in a lick was tough but I had to Them who’s boss.
Oh yes, that looks FAR more comfy and you can use it as a pillow too. Good job peeps.
Wally & Sammy
Not only that, we have it for further “incidents”.
Girl you know how to work the fashion! Love that collar and the other human here would love it too. He always felt bad for the conehead and would snip bits off here and there until there was not enough left. This, however, is a great idea. Btw, isn’t it all the rage to have the tags hanging out?? Eh, what do I know….
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
They all seem to say the same thing “Made in China”. I was hoping for something unique like “Made in Antarctica”.
Much better than the cone of shame and looks like a comfy pillow at the same time. Sending more healing vibes and hope it can come off soon. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly
They’re allowing me to have some free time (nothing on me) for the first time.
yay for soft collars 🙂
