When is an E-collar not an E-collar?

     When it is sitting in the back of the crate and isn’t on Gavin.  I went to take him out of his crate this morning and to my surprise he was sitting there with no E-collar on.  Sometime in the 3 hours when I slept last night, he managed to shred it off his neck.

Happily, Gavin hadn’t touched his ear, the stitches were intact.  I couldn’t duct tape that collar back into shape it was a lost cause.  I pulled out the other damaged collar, taped the crap out of it, and he’s wearing that one again.  I hope the new one gets here tomorrow. 

     If we’re real lucky the vet will remove the stitches on Tuesday, but I’m not holding my breath since he did warn us it could take as long as three weeks.

  1. Gavin ONE, Ecollar ZERO!

    Tried to think of something else you could duct tape, came up with a lot of enjoyable mental pictures, but nothing practical.

    Three thirty Tuesday we go back to the Vet for Gavin’s post surgery check up…pray he removes the stitches.

  3. Only a Bullie! 🙂 Here’s hoping you’ll post tomorrow about Gavin having no more stitches.
