Patty got spade last week. So she has to wear the cone head until she gets the stitches out on Tuesday. She is not real happy about this cone head deal. But it hasn't slowed her down any. The vet instructions said to keep your dog from running and jumping. Yeh right. This is a 1,000 MPH dog. She is awfully tough on the cone. It gets in her way when digging for mice in the field. Nearly every day it has a couple pounds of dirt in it that needs to get washed. Across the top she nearly split it in two. It is now held together with duck tape.
