The Collar of Shame

 

My lab Abby went to the vet a few days ago to have surgery to remove a cyst or large hard growth on the right cheek.  20 staples and $160. later,  she comes home with a neck collar on so she cannot scratch those staples out.  I knew she wasn’t the smartest of the smart, no Einstein is she.  But when that big plastic collar gets stuck on a wall, she just stands there and waits for someone to help her out.  She couldn’t drink water unless I held the bowl, until I finally showed her that if she got the bowl within the confines of the collar,  she could eat or drink whatever she wanted.  Poor doggy.
