Ok - so my mom followed through on her threat...but thankfully (if I have any reason to be thankful at all....) its not a cone collar...its a Pro-Collar...but they should just call it a "blow-collar"...cuz wearing this thing just blows!
My rump is better....thank you to everyone who offered a bit of insight & advice...I really only get hotspots in July & August when the weather here turns a bit sticky...my fuzzy undercoat sheds & it doesn't completely fall out..so it gets stuck & then it itches & then I itch it & you know where I'm going with the rest of the story. Its my mom's fault..she needs to brush me better so this doesn't happen.... Plus - we don't have air conditioning....it was never a problem before, but San Diego has been getting warmer & sticker - or so I've noticed.
So, no - I'm not going swimming, I'm not going sailing, I haven't just failed the (1/2) Newfie Water Rescue Test...but if it suddenly decides to rain here in this rain-less part of the world & I fall in a puddle...no need to worry about me!
Love & Licks,
PS...My mom let me have a new stuffie toy yesterday with all the trama I endured...a dolphin! THE IRONY!
