I was up for 23 hours yesterday (long story, lotsa travel) n drove back for 4 hours from Miami in the middle of the night... this morning I wake up to a barking puppy (thank god she let me sleep till 930!), I look in her crate n she's pulled the cone off her head... her cast looks OK but I go look at the cone n she destroyed it!! Ugh. She was gonna get a cast change tomorrow but I called em up n moved it up to today so I could get a new cone while I'm at it. I now have the wonderful task of keeping a tempremental psycho from chewing her cast for the next 3 hours... any bets on how many times she'll draw blood from me?? LOL! She's in her X-Pen chewing a bone right now... at least she stops chewing her cast when I go "eh eh!". She's really wired n gone a lil crazy with the lack of exercise...

Awww. She's like a little tiny Shooter...only just angry looking, not demonic. At least her eyes don't glow. Have a fun day, Mike.

My goodness her front legs look LONG in that last picture! :eek: Did they stretch them when you took her to the vet? :-s

I'm going to start calling her Miss Fantastic! :lol: :wink:

HEY! That would explain how she got her collar off!! :lol:

Those pictures are great. She looks like she has mutiple personality disorder!!!! Upper pictures she looks like a little crocodile, then last picture with new cast she looks like a perfect little angel.

Looks like the vets are having lots of fun designing pictures for her casts. Someone is a veritable artist! :lol:

Mike, could you try putting bitter Apple on the cast? That might negate the need for the collar.

Kristen, I think the only reason Mike doesn't want to get one of those doggy donut head thingys is that it will clash with the cast. :lol:

Susan, I think you're right.

The first ones, look, imo, kind of silly; I like the ones on the second link better, personally. To me, the first ones make the dog look like a clown dog. LOL

I'm getting excellent radio reception in my truck when she's around, why would I go and ruin that now? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
Poor Lyka. Are you going to keep these shots for blackmail? I would. When she won't follow an OB command later threaten to plaster the internet with shots of her in the "collar" acting like a psycho dog. I swear my puppy fears me sharingn some of the shots we've gotten of him...

What a nice vet staff to keep decorating her casts! Then again for as muc as they're probaby charging you it ought to be Picasso on those dang things :wink:

Kristen, I had one of those Bite Not collars (the ones that look like the kind humans wear if they suffer whiplash). The problem was that they didn't work for the back half of the body, or rear legs of long bodied GSD's!

I went to PetSmart last week to get a different E-Collar for her that didn't require a string to be tied -- the ones that fit around her neck are useless because she has such a long neck! Then I found out the one the vet gave me is huge because it's designed for a bigger dog, but has lil loopholes at the base for a string to tie it to a dog like Lÿka, so I stuck with the E-Collar that the vet gave me... it's only another week, I'm not gonna bother with any fancy special crap for just another week, by the time I get the thing it'll only be used for 2 more days or so lol.
