Duncan had a shaved spot on one of his front legs, where they had the IV during his surgery, and when he came home, he kept licking that spot. Originally I took a t-shirt and trimmed it so it covered that leg, and it was pretty cute.
But, well, I’m a knitter, and I kept thinking I could do better than a t-shirt, especially as that t-shirt got grungier. So last night I whipped up a little doggy leg warmer and by some miracle, it fit!
Sadly, it’s really only good when he’s lying down. When he’s up and moving around, it slides down and eventually works itself off. Oh, well, it was a nice idea at least. Tomorrow I’m back to work so he’ll be in the cone and confined in the kitchen, so he won’t be able to lick anything anyway. And Thursday we’ll go back to the vet to hopefully get the stitches out and maybe even get permission to ditch the cone!
Well it looks very cute while he’s laying there and he really can only lick when laying down, so it’s a success:)
That’s a great way to look at it, thank you!
Aww look at his little face! Man I miss having a dog.
They kind of are the best, even when they’re expensive and high-maintenance.
What a cute idea! I hope he will soon be back to his healthy self
This is the cutest thing ever.
That is brillaint. Can you dress Duncan up as the lady from Flashdance next Halloween?
LOL! I guess I better get started on a drop-shoulder shirt!
