    1. She is Poppy and not that old - only 8 but she has gone grey early (like me!!). Labs are wonderful dogs - although they are terrible thieves!

    1. She is normally such a happy hound and of course does not understand why she has to wear this!

    1. She is normally so happy! In fairness though she has now slightly resigned herself to her "Lampshade".

  6. Aww sad face. Remember when a dog we had had to wear one of those, they must be so annoying. Hope he's alright (I always call dogs he's!)

    1. Thank you - he is in fact Poppy and her injury is not at all bad but she will not stop licking it and making it worse hence the "lampshade" :(

  7. So what's the story to the sad face? :-(

    1. She has a minor injury on the inside of a back leg and will not stop licking it (we think she may have canine OCD!) - she has licked it so much that it won't heal and is forming an ever growing lump now. So she mustn't lick it until it is completely healed ... the vet reckons about 3 weeks :( I do however have an anti-biting product that I am hoping I can use to deter her once a sufficiently large scab has formed. How are your canine friends?

    1. Thank you - the collar is rather excessive for the injury (see the reply I wrote to Maria above) but totally necessary at the moment.

    1. LOL - we call it the lampshade! She's doing fine thank you - which is more than can be said for our kegs, furniture, our other dog ....

  10. Ahhh, she does look sorry for herself! I hope it heals soon. Our poor childhood cat had to wear one of these once. My mum probably still has the scars!

    1. Same here re scars - the "lampshade" is looking very much the worse for wear now!

  11. Oh dear lol my cat had to lose her lampshade because she point blank stopped eating and drinking ! Hope your doggie gets better soon

    1. She's a Labrador so it takes more than a lampshade to put her off her food! Hope you cat fully recovers soon too.

  12. Aww he looks so sorry for himself, nothing worse than an itch you can't scratch!

    1. And scratching/licking an itch is what got her to the point of needing the lampshade in the first place!

  13. Oh bless! our family dog hated having to have a collar fitted. Never much fun :(

    1. Being home alone today and so with few distractions around I have managed to keep the collar off for a while today and only ut it on again only when she was tempted to start licking again.
