Roxie is very unhappy about the Elizabethan collar she’s wearing. Do you blame her? She wants to scratch. She wants to bite. Those are dog entitlements! She’s being deprived with no clue why.
On a normal day as she plays with her toys Roxie uses her paws. With the collar they’ve been removed from the equation. So has running. Until Roxie’s stitches heal she’s got to keep motion to a minimum.
Last night Helaine and Stef were a little overwhelmed. Roxie was squirming. She wanted to break free of her restraint. The vet told them “You’ve got to tough it out.”
I guess that’s the rule for the next week and a half: tough it out.
