In which Lilli the Labrador becomes…

A bucket-head! Our beautiful pup Lilli is now 6 months old which means today she went to the vet to be spayed.
She was dropped early this morning and the girls picked her up this afternoon.

Our vet fits a smart collar to every pet they do surgery on.

No messing with stitches for Lilli!
The poor thing looked so funny mournful when I got home that I had to share.
She has to keep this on until her stitches are removed. Somehow we are meant to keep her quiet for the next 2 weeks.

Not hard today, but I don’t know how we are going to keep a bouncy half grown Lab quiet after the initial discomfort wears off.

Reminds me of when our kids were youngsters. They saw a dog wearing one of those collars, and our daughter wanted to know what it was for. Before I could respond, one of our sons said, "He's hard of hearing."

I hope your pup heals soon.

Aww poor Lillie. When Charlie got neutered, I got his dew claws taken off at the same time and they bandaged them with purple tape so it looked like he was a little Jazzercise puppy. :)
