dog in a cone

still life vs/ real life

... and why sometimes life ain't fair

collage and dog - moi

This is Birba in her "cone of shame": she had an extra set of declaws and needed to be removed.
Although she is doing better than expected (she is the least tolerant of the pack), she'll be pretty happy once that cone that make her look like a lamp will be removed.

The idea was to put an inflatable collar on her (which are more comfortable and less stressful), but she was still able to reach her back paws. 
So we ended up with the E-collar (Elizabethan collar)... and after the initial stage of craziness, she is now coping with it much better!
... She'll have it removed on Friday!!

And because this is a DIY blog... in case you need it, here's a link on how to make one for your pet :

  1. Love love love this post! I feel bad for Birba, but you put a huge smile on my face. Also, if my dog swallows another plastic something, this tutorial may come in handy (anything animal related is SO expensive in the US!).

  2. haha! The cone of shame is so sad, but i love those lamps! And getting the dew claws off are worth it!

  3. Fairly good post. I simply stumbled upon your blog and wished to say that I have really enjoyed studying your blog posts. Anyway I'll be subscribing to your feed and I hope to learn your post once more soon.
