Two Coneheads

Sometimes, when a Peke has surgery, they have to wear an e-collar to keep them from licking their stitches. They usually HATE the e-collars and really want to get at those stitches that are driving them crazy. Well, I had two that had surgery and so I had two "coneheads" in the house at one time. They're both in other foster homes now. I can only take dogs overnight now because I have a full house with the rest.
Cocoa (on the left) was really annoyed with his e-collar. His stitches were driving him crazy! He yelled and cried. We gave him pain meds and benydryl, but all he wanted was the e-collar OFF. Don't worry, by the time you read this, his e-collar is off and he is fine!
Bugsy/Buddy didn't give a care about his stiches. I finally just took his collar off. He never did bother his stitches. Amazing how some are unaware they've had surgery. Look at this face! Looks like a little angel doesn't he. HA!
Buddy can be a pistol, but his foster mom Diane, is determined to curb his little temper. He does great with his foster sisters and is learning that one of them definitely rules! More tomorrow on Buddy!!

We call the coneheads the "cone of silence" here! LOL
All my dogs have hated them.

Buddy looks like butter wouldn't melt in his mouth. Can't wait to see what happens tomorrow!
