Gray and White (and blue) Sunday

Why Gray and White?  Because today is all about ME, Thunder, the gray and white one here.

Hey, how did they all get in here too?  Oh yes, the point of my post.

Some of you were concerned about the bandage you saw on my leg in this pic the other day.

 So you might be thinking the "blue" part of this post is my baby blues.

Well, yes, they are very blue, aren't they?

Oops,  I am getting sidetracked again.  I have been licking my front paw a lot lately and made a sore.  Mom took me to the V.E.T. who said the boo boo was infected. So he wrapped my paw to stop me from licking, gave me a steroid shot, and put me on antibiotics.  I was supposed to wear this bandage for no more than three days IF it even lasted that long.

I was a very good boy and left the bandage alone.  But yesterday was long enough for me.  When Mom got up at 3:30 this morning because Phantom was calling her, she found this.

Now I am NOT saying I took the bandage off, but somehow it ended up on the floor.

 Somehow the boo boo got all pink and raw again.

And now for the "blue" part of my post, LOOK:

 Mom, how can you do this to me?

Woos, Blue Thunder

Poor Thunder...the soft cone of shame. Hope it heals soon and your itchies stop.


Reilly / Denny Cowspotdogs said...

I hear you Thunder - when you got an itch you just have to lick or scratch at it....the Mom's do get paranoid about it though....thankfully my Mom has not resorted to the cone of shame - yet!

Sue said...

Oh oh.. at least you didn 't eat or hide the bandage like Tsar used to do. You need to let that sore spot get better so it stops itching. That sad face will probably get you some special treats today.

Uh oh. Must be something going around. Sage has been licking one of her front paws for a couple of days, but no sore yet. I'll show her Thunder's collar...maybe that'll work!!

Jo's World said...

Whoa, Big Guy, you are gonna have to leave it alone, thats all. The Vet gave you a nice bandage and you made quick work of it, so too bad, so sad, next time remember!

Your pal,

Collie222 said...

Oh no! The cone of shame! We are very sorry you have to wear that! Are you bumping into doorways and the other dogs? (We have experience with that device)

Sam said...

Oh noes! The cone of shame has made an appearance!


Stewey said...

Oh no - not the cone of shame?!?!?
So sorry, Thunder :(
I can feel your pain, as I have something very similar on my front paw. I have to have drops on it and then some sticky, anti-lick goop that smells like pickles - weird, huh? Everyone in my family has been calling me ... "pickle foot" - sigh. Hope both of our problems end soon, buddy!

Stewey said...

Pee S - love your new header :)
Stewey, aka "pickle foot"

Sankissjuice said...

Oh NO...the cone of shame! Does it make it better if I tell you that you still look super cute wearing that thing? Really really hope you get well soon! no more Grey and white Sunday. Be back to rosy pink health soon!

Kisses to make it better,

Ruby said...

I have never seen the cone-o-shame looks so spiffy Thunder! Work it!!
I really thought you would try to pin the bandage removal on Lightning...poor dude, gets blamed for everythin'....



Dip-Dip and the Bridge said...

Oh no! We have one of those collars for when we visit the dreaded vet.
Hope your boo boo feels better soon and you can be released from your lampshade Thunder.

Madi and Mom said...

Oh no must be the time of year something in the air. Last week Mom and Dad visited their friends for two days. Their Corgi, Yogi,(we have a pic of Yogi on next Friday's post) had just finished meds for the same thing about a week before their visit and lo and behold he was licking his right front paw again. FYI you are still MOST handsome even in the cone of shame.
hugs your BFFF

FiveSibesMom said...

Oh, Thunder...not the cone! We feel your pain! Miss Chloe licks herself to sores more licking means no more cone! Although, it does make your beautiful baby blues pop! Hope the paw gets better soon!

Murray's Mouth said...

Oh no Thunder! Get better fast so you can lose the cone head thingy!

Marg said...

Oh no Thunder, we are so sorry that you have to wear that thing. But hopefully your sore will h3al up now. Sending tons of purrs and some woofs too. WE will keep our paws crossed for ya.

Oh Phantom, we feel so bad for you! Not the dreaded cone of shame! I hope it doesn't last too long and you can be cone free soon.


Nola said...

Poor boy! I hope you feel better soon

BeadedTail said...

Oh Thunder! If you could have only held out a little bit longer before taking your bandage off! Hope your boo-boo heals up quickly!

Oskar said...

Oh Thunder, someone as distinguished as you should not have to wear the cone of shame.

K9 Katastrophie said...

EEEEEEEK The cone of shame!!!!


KB said...

Oh no, TD. We're so sorry. R says that he'll be running to your house to take that thing off for you tonight, OK? Leave the back door unlocked for him...

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Oh Thunder! How very awful but those spots can get nasty VERY quickly. We have been having the same kind of itchy, leg-licking time here at White Dog Ranch both Nuka and Oso are driving momma to distraction with their licking. Swabbing the area down with vinegar seems to stop the interest in licking at least temporarily. Maybe your momster could try that.

T. Maxx said...

Noooo...!!!Not the kholllar!!!
Oh but mommy says you look soo cute in it!!


Jeanne Pursell said...

We feel for you Thunder!! We really do. Our mama has threatened Chloe with the cone too. She just doesn't seem to want to stop licking her paw! We think it must be an allergy or something...hope you are feeling better SOON!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Casey said...

Oh noes, the cone of shame!! How COULD your momma do that to you??

Bailey Be Good! said...

Ohhhh, I don't like those cones. Bad cones. So sorry you have a boo boo! Hope it goes away soon. :)

Woofs & huggies, <3

~Bailey (Yep,I'm a girl!)

Steffi said...

Oh no! Poor Thunder! Those cones are just terrible. We hope your foot heals quickly so you can get out of that cone!

By the way - we love the scary look of your blog :)

SissySees said...

Oh no! Not the cone! We hope your boo-boo is better soon and that you're soon free of the awful "hat"...

Suka said...

hey Thunder,

Wow. The cone of shame. I never thought I would see you in one of those. Doesn't your mom know that the ghost of Halloween pulled of your bandage while you were sleeping? I assume that is why Phantom was calling your mom (if not, I hope Phantom is o.k.). And with the bandage off of course you had to lick your wound! You had to keep it clean!

Sorry Thunder. Paws crossed your wound heals very quickly and that cone comes off your pretty head.


Sagira said...

All fun and games until someone ends up in a cone, right? BOL

I sure hope you feel better soon. :)

jen said...

Oh poor Thunder, having to wear the cone of shame!! I bet your little brother Lightning pulled your bandage off and then licked it! Hope your boo-boo gets better soon!

Khyra And Sometimes Her Mom said...

Of khourse, I'm furry sure Suka is khorrekht about how it happened!


Katz Tales said...

Poor Thunder! We're purring for you darling.

Lovable Lily said...

Oh Thunder, we are so sorry to hear of your boo-boo! Mommy had to put a sock on my paw a while back and that just did NOT go over well either! Hopefully you won't be "blue" for too long.

NanaNor's said...

Oh you poor thing Thunder! At least the bandage looked somewhat pink, as if you are supporting Breast Cancer awareness but now you are looking so cute with the matching collar and your eyes.
Hope your sore gets better soon.

Clive said...

Opps Thunder, Clive knows exactly how you feel. He finds it so hard to leave bandages alone.

Hope you don't have to wear the cone for too long!

Murray really loves your header by the way!!

take care

Poor Thunder....being a cone head is no fun, but as you and Arty are learning....if you play, you pay!


Mr. Pip said...

OK, nice work getting the bandage off, but OUCH!!!

What happened to my best buddy, Phantom!! Not the cone of shame!! Maybe I will bring him a cheeseburger to cheer him up!

Your pal, Pip
