Dog In Socks
Not exactly Dr. Seuss, but it works for us. Sharkey has allergies, and because of this sometimes she chews her feet until they bleed.
I’ve tried everything, including a cone. But when I use the ‘cone of shame’ as we call it, Sharkey’s lays down where she is and won’t budge. She won’t get up to eat, move, drink, NOTHIN! So, last night I resorted to this.
I took a pair of my cotton socks, cut them off at the heel, and got out the painters tape! Yes, I know, rather Rube Goldberg, but it works. The expression on Charm’s face when she looks at Sharkey is “Your mom dresses you funny!”
Sharkey’s so used to wearing silly outfits she doesn’t try to chew them off….at least not much. I have her under my watchful eye in the office today. It might look ridiculous, but so far, it’s keeping her from chewing her feet and keeping the ointment on.
