Foto Friday: Don’t Laugh At Me

Yes, I know I look ridiculous, but they are making me wear this stupid thing:

Bailey had some minor surgery yesterday to remove a mysterious lump on his hind leg.  We don’t find out until next week when the tests come back if lump is anything to worry about so we are remaining optimistic about it.  In the meantime, Bailey gets to look at us with a sad/pathetic face every time we have to cone him.  Thankfully, he doesn’t have to wear it when we are home with him which is most of the time.

    I hope it’s good news. I threatened Dobson with one of those collars if he didn’t stop licking his one paw. We gave him a bit of a hair cut and much have aggravated the skin, which he now persists to lick it raw. Cheers!

    You left the sticker on so you could return it, obviously. Poor B! I hope it’s nothing serious. Those cones make dogs look so pathetic :-/

    Ohhh, Bailey! I’m glad that you guys found the mysterious lump even if it isn’t bad, but I feel pretty bad for your pup because of the cone. I’d hate it too if I had to wear one!

      Not yet. Today’s is the first day that results could be in. But it could take up to a week longer if the lab is backed up.
