Our rambunctious and always happy goldendoodle, Chester, got into something that gave him an allergic reaction on his left hind leg a week or so ago. And of course, he started licking it and ripping out his fur to stop the itch.
As all parents know, kids’ maladies always get worse right at the start of a three-day holiday weekend. So by the time Tuesday rolled around, we thought part of Chester was going to look like a hairless Chihuahua.
Luckily, we were able to get him into the vet on Wednesday and yep, you guessed it, the “cone of shame” (plus medications) were prescribed.
So here’s what he looks like now.
And here’s what he looked like in his leisure days before “coning:”
So here’s the deal, Chester. We’ve put up with more than a year of COVID-19 crud. You can at least deal with the “cone of shame” for four more days.
