OK... we had to "keep Buddy quiet for 3 weeks" which is a death wish on this whole family. Impossible. That very day, after the drugs had worn out, he was up and ready to go. I felt like calling the vet and asking them just how easy they thought it was to keep an almost two year old dog "quiet".

We broke the rules a lot and let him play as much as we could so- albeit safely. He damaged the heck out of his e-collar, but that's because he wouldn't let it stop him one bit, lol. The day before he got he sutures out we even took the e-collar off and let him romp for real, lol.

So, I say it's okay to slightly break the rules as long as you're careful. Buddy was really good about not scratching AT ALL, which was such a relief.

Good luck!

Well, twice now, he somehow got his ear out of the bandage under the e-collar. I had to go to my mothers both times and have her help me re-wrap it because he just couldn't sit still.

He's such an angel, I feel so sorry for him. We have until Friday then he gets his stitches out and the e-collar can come off

Here are some cute pictures of him with it on. Please excuse the black electrical tape. He learned how to pull the velcro apart with his paw so now everytime we clean it or he eats, we have to use two strands of black tape to go accross the velcro to keep it on.
