    That really what it looks like - cone of shame. Never thought about it until I saw this. Did you make this up n-f? If you did, I like it :-)

    Aw, poor doggie! Our girl had the cone of shame (alternately the cone of silence) after her spay. She did not enjoy.

    Morning' house of fun. I hope everyone's Sunday is bright and beautiful and full of chocolate goodness.

    I threatened my dog with one of those the other day. We went to my parents house, I think she is allergic to grass (eating it) now she has the itchies. I'm giving her salmon oil and hoping for the skin to heal

    Well, all the celebrities have left the neighborhood. I wish they could have been here for a better purpose, but we don't always get what we want.

    Good morning, house of holidays.

    10 hours is a long time to spend with family, and without coming online at all...

    Also, I'm beginning to think playing a complicated card game with grandad is a bit cruel. His mind's not all there, so he gets confused easily. And then mum and nanna get frustrated with him and loudly announce the rules at him like it's his fault.

    So yeah, I think it's cruel, but what can you do?

    Susie, I always figure the party is anyplace you and I are sitting close. That's right, isn't it?

    I wanted to watch Dawson's Creek, but my Netflix refused to stream it, so I am watching a series of TED talks instead. Math is magic!
