The Dreaded Cone of Humiliation

I've been attacked by the dreaded cone of humiliation.
Get me out!
Send the biggest bestest chewers and chew me out.

I'm so saaaad. Please help me. 
Not only do I have this awful thingy strapped around my neck, but I've got a hurt toe too.
My nail bed is all swollen and it hurts and I NEEEEED to lick it. 

Not only that, but it smooshes my ears and my pretty beardie.
It's making my lovely Scottie profile look...well..
rather unflattering. 

Please help me!

Oh noooooooo! We had to see things like that happen to such nice doggies! We could barely stand check you blog when we saw the title... You poor girl! Couldn't you just promise not to lick your toe anymore?? Or couldn't they just put the cone around your paw? I mean there is nothing wrong with your head.... Gosh, I don't know what else to say, but if we lived close I'd already have that thing chewed off you! Hope your toesie is better real soon!

The HORROR! My dad just got a t-shirt that says "It's all fun and games until somebody ends up in a cone" and it has a picture of a dog wearing one of those torture devices! We are soooooo sorry about the cone and your toe!

You asked where I got my fancy harness, and I got it at Wiggles, Wags and Whiskers, or from 2Hounds Design! I hope that helps! A girl needs a velvet brassiere if she's going to wear it out in public!

Sorry 'bout that albatross!


Mumzie said...

Connor & Buddy won't wear these. I don't know what I'll do if one of them "has to wear" the dreaded cone. We tried one on Connor once, and he went the vet gave him "no lick" paste and it worked. Mumzie

Oh ma put one of those things around my head a couple of years ago....I had baaaaaaaaaaad allergies......the problem was, well I am sort of out of proportion, so when I tried to walk, my cone hit the floor......and I cried...and sat......and didn;t was awful...
But you are smarter then me Bonnie, you'll figure it out!
I hope that your toe feels better soon!
Hugs, Angus and his ma

Martha and Bailey said...

Bonnie, this is just awful. We rushed straight over when we saw your blog post title as we feared the worst.
We are looking into flights right now and will get there just as soon as we can.
We are pretty good at tearing these things off - just hold on.
love you lots

Oh Sugar, I feel for you. I was stuck in that funnel head of doom not that long ago. I'll send the Molly over. She sure will demolish it...

Mango said...

Stay away from meeeeee! I am most fearful of cone monsters even when they are YOU! I sure hope that your toe gets better soon so that you can be back to your lovely self.

Wooos Bonnie! Arrrrggg!!! I hate those things, they do nothing for us beauty wise either, not at all flattering I am afraid to say....It is so hard to get that chewed off too, I tried whining a lot, or maybe woo can get some fur friend to help woo chew it off?
I hope woo little foot feels better soon!

The Musketeers said...

Oh man the cone of shame ! I sure hate those circle cone headed collar ! Who in the world invented it! Arghhh !

But still, hope you get that off you soon ;)

Mrs. JP said...

Oh you poor thing. Charlie had to have the cone humiliation when he got neutered. I know it's tough to eat, drinking is a mess, and peripheral vision - forget about it! Maybe your toe will heal really quick but until then you look like a really cute fluffy flower.

Dory and the Mama said...

Oh Bonnie...I am on my way to help you chew out of it!!


Kari in WeHo said...

oh no! that is terrible. Maybe if you promise not to lick it it they will remove the cone?

Maggie and Mitch said...

I feel so badly for you, Bonnie! Mom tried to put one of those things on me after I had a surgery and I acted so pathetic that she took it off. Our advice is to act EXTREMELY pathetic! We hope it works for you too!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Bella the Westie said...

Poor Bonnie, I hope you get better soon.
Love, Bella.

McGillicutty said...

Oh no, your beardie! I will come right away to save a fellow with a beardie. I've never seen one of those contraptions, and me hopes me never will. Poor, poor Bonnie, me lass! I'm here for you! Just let me know, and I'll be a shoulder you can cry (er, um, cone) on! Promise! You are such a sweetie!

Irish Love,

Gail in Aberdeen said...

Oh Bonnie. Now I know that it is hard to take the long view, but take heart, your paw will soon be better, and your beautiful Scottie profile restored to its usual glory!

Angus said...

Oh dear , is there anything worse? When Wilf had to wear one it had to be changed every day because he would run into doors and between trees with it on. Every single one of them shattered. At least its only for a few days - isn't it?

Eric said...

That's just so wrong how's a girl meant tpo paint her tootsie nails with that thing on her head? . Hope your tootsies is better soon. Wiry wags n kisses Eric xx

Sherry said...

Maybe your people can find the kind of cone that looks like a big donut? Perhaps they even come in pink?

scotsmad said...

We didn't know anything like that could happen to us! Hope your toe heals quickly....even if you can't lick it better.

XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra and Bella

TwoSpecialWires said...

Awww. Bonnie. We are so sorry. Mostly about your hurt paw. But also for your humiliation. Would it help to think of yourself as a pretty tulip? We doubt it, but we thought we'd at least try to give you some other way of thinking of your dilemma.

Feeling for ya. Hoping it won't be too long an ordeal.

Pee esS. We just remembered our neighbor Samantha. She wore one of those lampshades for a LONG time, and she got really good at scooping and flipping rabbit poo with it ... right into her mouth! It was hilarious! You might give it a try. Even if you have to use kibble!)

Anonymous said...

OH LORD! This isn't right, now is it? You're the prettiest thing, but that CONE HAS TO GO! Try not to think about your toe and get into that whiskey some more (without the Diet Coke). Glad to hear you peed on something. It happens to the best of us doesn't it? Get better soon. Roo Roo Stuart

ocmist said...

Poor Bonnie!!! I noticed the date on this post, though, and am sure that by now you are out of that dreadful thing!

They weren't sure, when Mercy and I got "sprayed" if we would have to wear one of those things, but we didn't lick, so they didn't put them on us. My Dad said that he was afraid to put one on ME anyway, because that would have made me a SONIC WEAPON the way I bark and he was also afraid that I would deafen myself!!! LOL Dott from the Country Corgis


Bonnie what happened to the princess attire!?? Oh no a sore nail bed.. please heal quick! Miss Bonnie can not go on like this..

Oskar said...

I'm so sorry about the cone of humiliation. I'll try to find my way to your house to chew it off for you!

Oh dear! We hope that your toe feels better soon. Nothing like having an itch and not being able to tend to it.

Sending you hugs and love,
