Sit, Stay, Heal

I know any dog with a cone on it's head looks pretty sad. But a basset hound with that woebegone face and big liquid eyes, it's just pathetic. Poor old Rufus. I can hardly look at him.

It's stupid really, he got a fly bite on his nose over Memorial weekend. It bled a bit, and scabbed over. Not a big deal. But since then, every time it scabs over and starts to heal, it must itch because he scratches it open again. So now that little fly bite is turning into a big scar on his nose. I finally decided to resort to the cone. Too bad I couldn't talk him into a band-aid.
