I am a cone head!

Hey, everydoggie! It's me, Patches. My personal secretary (aka Mom) hasn't done a blog post in so long, that she wasn't aware of all the changes to blogger. She put in like 5 pictures and can only find ONE. Anyway, I am a cone head! Yep, I have two hot spots on my back, near my tail. Since I won't leave them alone, my mom and Aunt Wendy decided to make a cone-head out of me. It took them about 10 minutes to cone me, but I unconed myself in about 5 minutes. Woohoo! I even ripped my collar off. No stupid cone for me! Our blue birdies have a new set of babies. We see the mom and dad taking food into the house for them, twice a day. Now we are on blue bird patrol to see when they leave the nest. We will know it's coming soon when we start to see the last batch of babies show up to help with the feeding. A couple of weeks ago, my mom deserted us! She went all the way to O-HI-O to visit her family. Mom's uncle, from Jacksonville, Fl. was going up for a class reunion and he invited my mom to ride along! Mom said it was a long trip both ways, but it sure was nice to spend some time with her family. She hadn't seen them in almost 4 years! She's hoping her uncle does that again some time...he usually rides a motorcycle all the way up there and my mom say, "No thanks" to THAT! Well, she's been back for about a week and still trying to catch up. Well, everydoggie, it's about time for your 465th trip outside today! Aire-hugs, Patches (and Ezzy Rider and Jagger too)

Hi Patches, you have been absent for an awfully long time.Maybe your mom can put some sort of ointment on there that will relieve the itchiness or sting but not make you sick if you lick it. We hope that it all heals soon.

We're sorry you have to be "coned"...but as our humans like to say..it's for your own good!

Try to be good...OK???

Wirey love

Sorry about the cone, but those hot spots get super nasty if you pester them. Sometimes my Grandpa Angus had to take steroids for his. It made him less itchy, but he still needed a cone. In fact he spent the better part of most summers in a cone, so there you go.

Hang in there.

Poor Patches! The cone is the worst!

Patches, we can't believe that you have been coned. We hope that you were feeling much better soon after this photo, so you could get rid of the cone. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful day.
