    Feel better, Troy. Its never easy, I feel bad for the guy. Of everything I've ever had to go through with animals, putting a dog in a cone is the most defeated I've ever seen an animal.

    Troy spent most of the evening sleeping or fighting sleep. In the pic, the only reason his eyes were open was because I was doing something right in front of him. For the ride home, he wanted to sit up and look out the window, but he was repeatedly nodding with his eyes half closed (probably looked like me about an hour into a meeting at work).

    He normally sleeps on the bed snuggled up beside my leg, but he crashed out on the couch downstairs (we call it the basement even though it's really the first floor, since the living area is second floor) in our den area. I didn't want to disturb him or leave him alone, so I fell asleep on the other couch watching TV. He seems back to normal this morning after a good meal, just a little groggy from pain medication. He doesn't like the cone, but at least this time he can navigate the stairs by himself (when he had the ones on his leg removed, I carried him up and down stairs since there was a possibility of him opening his sutures). Just planning to enjoy the day with him now.

    Both of these cones work really good. Top is the comfy cone. Had to use it last time because the surgery was to the eye

    If you're trying to protect a lower extremity than the inflatable is where it's at!

    Tried the comfy cone with his first surgery. He didn't like it (can't see through it). Plus, he figured out how to snag it on things and work his way out of it.

    Yeah Vision is a problem. The last surgery was eye so I was fine with him trying not to use it or move too much

    He was carrying one of his toys around this morning doing a patrol of the entire house. He knows he was away all day yesterday, and I think he was checking to see that everything is as he left it. I think it wore him out, he's crashed out on the couch again.
