Shoot Me! 5 of 52 Challenge

 Here I am with Odda the other night.  This is the day before she had her surgery. 


Now after surgery she has to stay in the house - just goes out to go potty, and play a little.  She hates it!  Her cone collar lasted  one day before it cracked completely.  She bumps into everything!  Poor girl.  So we duck taped it back together.  Her eye looks pretty good, still swollen somewhat.  Steve will be taking her to get her stitches out on the 12th.  She is suppose to wear the collar until that time!

She is so clutsy with this collar on.  Bumps into everything, and she always wants to be so close to everyone.  She wants to be rubbed, and she'll come up to you, rub against your leg, and then turn so her back is where she wants rubbing.  Her head with this cone is then usually caught up with the corner of the table, the computer keyboard, or the edge of the chair.  Then the cone snaps, and so far, when she's inside, it hasn't cracked.  The cold outside here doesn't help - the plastic snaps and breaks real easy when she bumps something.  Oh for good duck tape!  It fixes almost everything!

Here she is stealing Hooch's food (after eating all of hers).   I let her eat some, so I could get a picture.  I took her for a good walk Tuesday, and will do it again today.  Yesterday I could hardly move, so I was not moving very good.  Not even enought to take her for her walk.  I slept pretty good last night, so we'll go for a walk today.  Think I pulled a muscle in my left side low and couldn't even get up and walk upright for 2 days now.  We'll see how today goes.

I feel so bad for dogs when they have to wear them, of course I know they need it but our dogs always looked embarased to me, LOL. I've always loved Bernese Mtn dogs, is she is sweetheart? We had to put our dog down at thanksgiving and in the next year I can see us getting another dog.

awww...sweet doggy. It makes me smile so big when I see people include their pets in the challenge. After all they are family too!

Poor Odda. She is probably wondering what she did wrong that caused her to have to wear that awful creation. At least she is on the mend now. Hope you feel better too. Those aches and pains are not much fun.
