Buckethead Bundy

Bundy and his cone of shame
Bundy and his cone of shame

Bundy or Buckethead as we have been calling him is not happy with his new situation, he had a couple of little lumps removed from his eyelid on Tuesday and has had to wear a cone since then. Once the grogginess wore off he has been pretty much his normal self, but the occasional sigh is expressed when he is trying to find a comfortable position in which to sleep.

The cone is a weapon, Buckethead has no spatial awareness and is constantly rushing up to greet us and swiping us in the shin, he also like to follow closely and playing with Maxi results in her growling at him and then running away. All of us will have bruises after this week. Walking is also interesting, we can’t risk anything rubbing against his eyes or him stopping to have a scratch so the cone stays on, Buckethead is pretty low to the ground and the collar often get stuck on a step or gutter causing a sudden and unexpected stop. Eating and drinking requires a platform, the cone is just too deep for Buckethead to reach his food bowl or the water bowl, on the first night my husband had to hold the bowl up for him.

Whilst the cone has provided a great source of amusement, we will all be glad when the vet gives the OK to remove it.

    Bless, there can be no worse indignity for a dog than the “Cone of Shame”.

    Our dog Merlin wore one after the vet stole his manhood, it did not slow him down, we just ended up with cone height dents in all the furniture and cone height bruises on our legs!

    I hope “Bucket head” is free of the cone for Christmas, can’t have him smashing Santa in the shins!
