OMG what a great pic! I see that puppy look in his eyes in this pic, and I think about when we met him, and wow, what a difference a few years made! Thanks for giving us hope that Wyatt will be as mature as Max was when we met him.

The book looks funny. But a name change? Huh? Bad editor! No donut!

Thanks for the smiles 🙂

Okay, I'm going to try it, but we all know, I will fail miserably.

Darn it! I cannot get this right!!! Argh! Charlie, also, did not have to wear one due to the amputation. Nope, paw licking. Silly dog…

She wore it home but didn't end up needing it.  And she looked so pitiful with it on.

Kobe has so many pictures - he had to wear his cone for the whole 2 weeks crying We tried to have some fun with it - sometimes with mixed results. This first picture makes me laugh but it didn't make Kobe laugh so the bird came right out. The second one was about a week into recovery. Kobe was so glad when that beat up cone got thrown away...and so were the back of our calves...mine had so many bruises 🙂

OK if we had a prize for funniest cone photo, I think Kobe would win this round! Thanks for sharing.

No pictures of Emily with her cone.  She also would run it into the side of the wall trying (sucessfully) to break it.  If I didn't take it off her she then switched to running into the back of my legs.  It came off quickly.

  This is a picture of Tasha just before her surgery, you can see in the picture how she is favoring her leg and sticking her tongue out because she didn't like wearing the cone of shame !       

Tasha 8 years old, First cancer diagnosis 6/26/09, Last cancer diagnosis 9/26/09, Amputation 10/01/09, Loving our girl moment by moment.

Tasha lost her battle and became my Angel on May 4 2011. Forever in my heart….
