Voodoo's impersonation of a LAMP

So, Miss Voodoo might have gotten something in her eye when she rolled in grossness at the park. We woke up Saturday morning and her eye was almost swollen shut! :sick: Our awesome vet checked her out and it's not scratched, nothing stuck in the flesh so she's got antibiotic anti-inflammatory drops to treat her poor puffy pussy eye.

FordGirl was awesome and lent us a cone - we'd had socks taped to Voodoo's feet to keep her from rubbing her eye all day yesterday, cone working WAY better. Poor pup! She's being super snuggly (that's a rare thing!), leans her face up against the warm facecloths, definitely not feeling very well.

The eye is MUCH better today, so happy we have the drops because they really seem to be working wonders.

I thought I'd share rare photos of Voodoo
a) impersonating a very very sad lamp
b) snuggling in bed. Doesn't happen too often!

Poor Voodoo , for how long does she has to wear this thing ?

Aw, poor Voo! Ember just got out of his cone...also for an eye problem. He's roooroooing some sympathy Voo's way. :dog:

I hope her eye is better soon! :goodvibes:

Never mind my question in the other thread :o I didn't see this one till just now.

Voo should be out of the cone by tomorrow night - swelling is mostly gone! YAY!

But she's still being a major suck, not able to navigate around the house at all in that cone! We actually heard her talk for the first time ever tonight - she "owooohhhhed" while looking up at her dad, her head on his knee. :cry:

I can't wait until she's back to health - although I'll miss the snuggling.

Just buy her a cone and put it on her every time you wanna cuddle :laughing:

:sorry: Voodoo :p

Awwwww, poor VooDoo. :sad: Thanks for acting so fast on getting her to the vet! It probably helped to get that swelling down. She looks so so sad.
Sending lots of :goodvibes::fingerscr her way that the cone can come off soon!!

Poor Ember! I hope he's happy to have The Cone off. Voo's jealous!

Frenchy - you made us laugh our darned heads off! We finally have a way to force Voo to enjoy snuggles! Bwahahaha! :evil:

W - man, if she had internet access I'd NOT post that photo. The princess would be horrified. :eek:

Is it bad to laugh at her? Voodoo keeps trying to get into her crate but her cone keeps catching on the door so she backs up and tries again. OMG, it took her four or five attempts before she gave up and came over to stand between The Husband and I, just standing looking sad.

Thanks for all the get-well wishes! Her eye looks good this morning, same size as her "good" eye and very little pus overnight. She's still trying to scratch it so she's gonna be coned for a few more hours at least. Holy cow, funny and sad.

what a little cutie! But she does look so sad, poor thing! I think dogs know when they are being laughed at and become quite embarassed! :o

:laughing: a little Dazy smell and probably some drool too. :rolleyes: I thought maybe Pubert's cone would fit better but it was super small, forgot how little he was. :angel:

Voo looks sooooo sad in these pics :sad:, hopefully she's all better soon so they can meet in the feild for wrestlemania. :goodvibes: :goodvibes: :dog: :dog:

:headslap: totally forgot to tell you , have you tried to make her sit near the tv while she's wearing the cone, sometimes when they do it right , you can get more channels :D

Of course , the bigger the cone , the more channels possibilities. That's why I make Nelly wear one on rainy days .... I don't have satellite tv :shrug:

Frenchy - you are an :evil: woman! :laugh::laugh:

I think we need to take up a collection for you so you can get satellite back for a year and let those poor doggies rest. :D

No extra channels for us - Voodoo was officially free of the cone yesterday! YAY! No more sad lamps moping around the house.

Glad to hear Voodoo is doing better. She looked so sad in her cone. I'm sure she wouldn't have minded a couple scoops of ice cream in that cone :laughing: The poor dear.

*Note to self: If in need of cone, make trip to Calgary :p *

This is the only time she stayed still at the park today - she was watching all the dogs go by while we waited for friends.

Coneless and HAPPY!
