Bravo, Fortis, thank you!
can I ask how you add pics to the threads?
Yes, there is a thread titled "How to Add Images to Your Post," but this explanation of Comet's is the best: "Addiing Pictures from Your Facebook or Photobucket account."

Gerry has been a tripawd since 12/16/2009.
He was a shelter dog with a mysterious past and an irrepairable knee injury.
Videos and pics of Gerry's pawesomeness can be found at: http://gerry.tripawds.com

Here is our Abby in her, well, it's not really a cone... more like a flowered donut of shame...
I also have a video of me putting her into her donut of shame, which I find amusing. Wasn't sure how to embed it here, but it's viewable here.
Love the other pics folks have shared. Good idea to start this thread.
Jackie, Abby's mom
Abby: Aug 1, 2009 – Jan 10, 2012. Our beautiful rescue pup lived LARGE with osteosarcoma for 15 months – half her way-too-short life. I think our "halflistic" approach (mixing traditional meds + supplements) helped her thrive. (PM me for details. I'm happy to help.) She had lung mets for over a year. They took her from us in the end, but they cannot take her spirit! She will live forever in our hearts. She loved the beach and giving kisses and going to In-N-Out for a Flying Dutchman. Tripawds blog, and a more detailed blog here. Please also check out my novel, What the Dog Ate. Now also in paperback! Purchase it at Amazon via Tripawds and help support Tripawds!

That's not a cone! That's a bulleye's target board!!!!!!! If only I had my sponge balls handy, I could have some real fun!!!!!
"For just 25 cents, you can throw a ball and try to hit the bullseye – a Tripawd Head!" Bwahahahahhahahhaaahhhaaaaa!
Hey Monkeybutt!!!!! I have a ball!!! Who should be aim for first??!!! Bahahahahahaha!
Spirit Samson was Spirit Tripawd Daisys four legged "brother" and ruled as the self proclaimed head of the Monkeybutt Federations East Coast Division. Lady Chunky Monkey stayed from Oct 2011 and left for the bridge in Apr 2012. Miss Perdy is left and has some big pawprints to fill.

Rumbles licked the inside of his cone obsessively. I guess he thought he could dissolve it! Anyway, not only was the licking annoying, but the resulting smell was horrible. Needless to say, we took the cone off pretty quickly. He couldn't reach his incision anyway, so I wasn't sure why he had it at all…until I read the itemized vet bill and saw $28 for that darned piece of plastic. Here's a rare non-licking moment.
