What A Shame, The Cone of Shame!

So it's day 2 with the drain tube and things are already starting to look better! I am so relieved! I don't know if I could take it any longer if Sage didn't start to show improvement soon (it's been 9 days since the original dog bite). It's been so sad for me to see her in pain!

But today is a new day! Sage is MUCH more active and all she wants to do is be outside. Unfortunately, that's not an option right now so she's stuck inside and locked in the pantry.

She lets me know how miserable she is with her little whines and sad puppy dog eyes...

When she does get her allotted outside time, she takes full advantage. Her first trip is to the water bowl, where she spends the majority of her time...

(Sage wanted me to note how difficult it is to wear the cone of shame, both physically and emotionally.)

Then she explores a little.

Sometimes she finds some toys laying around, but often they get a little stuck, which is pretty embarrassing.

Then there is another trip to the water bowl...

Then it's back inside where Sage waits not so patiently for her next trip outside.

The cone of shame...What a shame!


  1. That looks like one of those duck phones they used to have. Sweet hands free device.

  2. Have you tried the life saver thingy? It looks more comfortable.
