Cranks My Tractor

I’m with Dug.

My dog, Doolittle, came home from the veterinarian’s office with the cone of shame the other day.  He had to have a liver biopsy so they could perhaps figure out what is causing some of his health problems.

In addition to being drugged and having his stomach cut open, he had to manage with this funnel thing on his head.  He was getting hung up on the armrests of chairs, door frames and the tops of tables.

It just wasn’t funny, being my dog and knowing that he already felt bad from being sliced open and his insides poked.

I like dogs.  I like mine a lot.

Therefore, the next time I see a person walking their dog with this cone of shame thing on their head, I’m going to look at it a little differently.

We often think things are funny, when we shouldn’t.  I know we don’t do it on purpose; we just don’t take the time to look at it from the viewpoint of those being collared.
