Yay for Briggs! My dog had to wear that awful thing once as well because of surgery and he absolutely hated it. Poor thing he kept bumping into stuff around the house too. I'm sure Briggs is eternal grateful the thing is off!

My experiance with dogs wearing cones is that they become sad and look like they did something wrong.

Those prosthetic eyes are amazing! I had no idea there was such a thing for dogs, but how wonderful they look.

C'mon, Briggs--celebrate!! :o)

I'm convinced our beagle thinks she's half cat; given a choice between passing some time with a cat or doing the same with a dog, she'd choose a cat. But the dang things just don't know how to play like a dog!

Bless you both for the work you do for all the animals. You are such an inspiration! I wish you all the success in the world.

Let Freedom Ring and naptime continue. SOOooo glad to see Briggs enjoying his blanket and the comfort of RDR! A perfect match.

Looks like "This IS my happy face!" pic. Glad he has survived the two months of being a "conehead"! Maybe once he realizes that there's no horror to follow, he'll show some relief.
Hugs all around,

It was nap time! Jeez, what do you expect a sleepy beagle to do?? I'm sure he'll schedule in a happy dance when he's had enough sleep.

I'm so happy he's recovering and pain free - even if his eyes still look slightly 'alien-ish.'

Briggs probably wasn't so sure the thing was gone for good. Once he realizes it, look out!

I just love that blanket he's laying on...

I'm not sure if you are aware of this or not but there is a new product on the market instead of these cumbersome plastic cones. It is called the "Comfy Cone" and can be found at They are only $15. It is a soft foam construction and makes it easy for your pet to eat, drink and relax. Just thought I'd mention it!

Awwww Briggs - you look so cute, either coned or coneless! When I visit the ranch (would love to see it) I will pick you up and we'll do a little dance - we can put the cone on the floor and do a Mexican stomp dance around it. Your naps will be much easier now!! :<)

I could accuse you of photoshopping the Before-and-After photos, they look so close. But after two months, it's probably become part of his personal space and now he has to figure out how to get around again. But first, a nap!

Or maybe he thinks he's in blind beagle school. To me, he has that look of "let's be patient with these humans" that I sometimes see on my animals' faces. Here's my caption for the second photo: "Let's see - I learned to navigate this place without sight. Then I learned to do it with a cone on my head. I wonder what challenge Steve has planned for me next?"

Wow, not only did Briggs not roll around in ecstasy, he managed to make his "after" photo look exactly like his "before" photo with only the collar's being gone. But he'll soon do The Dance of Joy when he understands that the hated cone is gone for good. Briggs looks like a real dog, not like one wearing a lamp shade! It is truly independence day for the precious beagle!

LOL! Are you sure you didn't just Photoshop the cone out of the first picture? And here we thought Briggs would be baying up a storm in happiness when the cone was gone! Bless his little heart.

Yay!!!! He will totally thank you later with some serious ground rolls I have no doubt. What a relief for him! When I think of the planetary alignment that got him where he is today I am truly awed at how wonderful the universe can be. Thank you SO MUCH for taking such great care of him. I can't wait to see him again!
