Conehead

24 Mar

There are good cones:

ice cream cones, party hats, and pine cones.

There are bad cones:

volcanic cones, and traffic cones.

And then there is the dreaded

CONE OF SHAME!!!!

Lucy has managed to avoid the cone until today. She had a dental cleaning and lump removal on Monday and I’ve stayed home with her for the last two days taking care of her. She’s been a good girl and hasn’t had to wear a cone. But, I can’t stay home forever, so I pulled out the cone and tested it out.

I bought this cone, a soft cone, almost seven years ago when Fiona had a cancerous tumor on her ear. She had almost 100 stitches that ran from the top of her head and down the length of her 9-1/2 inch ear. She had a lot of surgeries over the years and I certainly got my money’s worth. Unlike Fiona, Lucy has been a pretty healthy girl.

I’ve knit a baby sweater and read a lot while tending to my little patient, but today, I need to get out of the house.

Let’s hope Lucy doesn’t figure out how to get out of the cone.

    I hope things go well. She is adorable, but looks somewhat confused.

    Your lead, and up to the photo of Lucy, is hysterical! Hope all is well when you get back.

    She is looking at you like – Why me? My friends dog is in the same cone of shame right now as well. Hope all is better soon.

    Lucy is sooooo cute, and she’s so lucky to have a mom who takes such good care of her. Soft cones are so much better than the standard plastic lampshade ones.

    Poor Lucy. She looks so sad, but I’m sure she knows it is only temporary and for her good.

    Here is hoping Lucy heals quickly.

    I never realized there were so many cones! Poor Lucy. I bet that’s one cone she wishes was never invented. I like the idea of a soft cone and will look for one the next time my baby needs a cone of shame. Although her look says it all!
