    Oh bunny, poor baby, he really looks like you just took away his best friend

    While he looks really sad, be assured he will get over the cone of shame incident, and he wont still be holding a grudge next week when he feels much better....
    Some really good advise above if you get into any more trouble. good luck.

    There's a Like at the bottom of the post over on the right hand side, you click on it.

    I love your style for ringing work, you're right, they would have laughed if you said it was your dog's stitches ...

    I also called work telling them I cant come in because my son is sick (they would have laughed at me if I said my dog has stitches and I cant leave him).
    Poor Sammy! being stapled like this would have hurt. Too bad vet didnt give him local anaesthetics first.
    Happy he is all good now!
    They tried. Sammy doesn't like needles - staples are one thing but needles hell no so the vet ended up squirting the local into the wound. I'm not sure how effective it was because I could tell that night Sammy was in pain.

    I know, if I had kids I would probably lie and tell people I had to stay home with them rather than my dog, but it's not fair. At least at my current workplace (which I'm about to leave) they know how important Sammy is to me. My boss joked when I came in after some other personal things happened that she didn't have to worry about me coming into work no matter what happened so long as it didn't involve Sammy.

    It makes me feel heaps better that there are so many people out there who chose to stay up at night with their dogs rather than putting them trough wearing the cone of shame. We did the same thing but I'm always a bit reluctant to tell because people think I'm crazy

    Margoo - I have only had him for 2 and abit weeks.
    We are actually fostering him (couldnt adopt him until he had the snip).
    It seems natural. I would do it for my son, I would do it for my husband (maybe lol) so I would definitely do it for a helpless critter that I rescued.
    I will try to give him the best life has to offer since the poor thing has had a very bad start to his short life - though that didnt stop him from having the most amazing nature and personality.
    I am glad many here understand what I am going through also because it is all new to me!!

    Very true!

    Our dog did the same thing after he got the snip. He was just sitting there looking sad and trying not to move... I couldn't watch it. And once the COS was off there was no way how we could possibly get it back on without sedating him.

    LOL mine LETS you put it back, he just sits there.. he looks so pathetic and helpless and lets you do it again that you just feel like the worst person for doing it!
    Kinda the same as when husband puts a pill down his throat and then he lets him put another one - who does that? I would have bitten him!

    That's the exact same as Sammy - he might be a 45+kg doberman but he knows where his real strength lies... He looks up at me with these eyes - just like, how could you do this to me? He puts his head down, but his eyes up and it is just heart wrenching. And doesn't struggle, just takes it and then destroys me with his eyes.

    We should almost start a new thread for photos of people's dogs turning up the charm factor.
