I wrote this last night, after the humor of this situation kept nudging me…Our dog has been wearing a cone for almost 2 weeks. It’s hilarious and annoying at the same time, so I thought I’d share a bit of silliness, in the midst of the seriousness of life. Maybe you can relate?
I hope you enjoy!
She found some difficulty with the regular task of
drinking water, eating food, and her sniffing routines
She was unaware she created hysterical scenes
for the bowls were invisible while she wore the “mask”
With it’s daunting width, she crashes, boom, bangs
into walls, doors and furniture, too
Until her leg heals, there’s nothing more we can do
She’s her own ensemble, as she walks, bumps and clangs
It’s a bit silly, but an aardvark she mirrors
The cone covers all it devours
She doesn’t fight anymore: she’s worn it for hours
We all love her still and so do her peers! ♥
