Wesley had surgery on Tuesday past, an aggressive treatment (lateral resection) for an even more aggressive series of ear infections. A check-up visit to the vet yesterday was positive; things are healing up nicely apparently. But until he gets the stitches out on Friday, he must continue to wear the Elizabethan collar, a.k.a. the lamp shade, to avoid any scratching that may disturb the healing process. He’s maneouvering decently these days, especially after Brian trimmed the cone. But he still bumps into things and plows snow as he goes out to do his doggy business on the patio. But he’s not very happy having it on, as you can see below.
