Our German Shepherd puppy got neutered today. He came out of the vet clinic wearing a huge plastic cone-shaped collar that covered his head. He looked ridiculous. He bumped into walls. He bumped into furniture. He crashed into the car trying to get in. He was a mess.
When we got home, I took him into the back yard to do his business. The two huskies next door came over and stared at him. What humiliation! The poor dog not only has a sore bottom, but he has to look like an idiot for two weeks, enduring ridicule from the animals next door. And he can't even have a proper sniff.
My heart goes out for him, even if he is a big, dirty, smelly, obnoxious dog!
