Guest Blog Post: It’s All Fun and Games Until Someone Ends up in a Cone

Hey it’s Mike the Miniature Schnauzer that lives with/manages Tierney and John. Usually I write my own blog posts (yes I’ve learned to type without opposable thumbs) but this time I had to dictate my post to Tierney because I am in A CONE!

Can you tell how irritated I am with the humans?

Just because I had a weird growth on my back, which turned out to be harmless, and had it removed, does not mean I can’t be trusted not to lick my stitches.

I kept trying to reason with my humans to remove the thing. Here I am glaring at a human sitting on the loveseat next to the couch:

I think this is a plot by my female human to have someone else in the household who looks injured. I tried to intimidate her by staring at her knee scooter:

Nothing has worked and allegedly I have to wear this thing for 9 more days. I am going to keep giving them the “furry eyeball” and staring them down until they consider removing this thing.

The humans keep commenting on how cute I look in my cone. Why don’t they try wearing cones for a while?

  1. Hahaha, this post was too funny! Poor Mike, but he does look adorable in that cone! ( and, having a mini schnauzer ourselves, we are totally familiar with that look!).

  2. And here Mike, I thought that you were wearing a sympathy cone in support of Tierney’s ankle cast. I’m so glad (and I’m sure your humans are too) that the growth was completely harmless. Maybe if you start barking annoying songs like “21 bottles of beer on the wall” or the “wheels on the bus go round and round” they’ll take the cone off quicker;)

  3. Mike, You’ve not gonna believe me – but on Wednesday around midday when I was bussing over to my afternoon activity something unusual caught my eye (out of the window) there was this caramel colour dog wearing a “cone” not as pretty as yours. So what was he doing – well he wasn’t glaring at anyone, in fact he wasn’t even with anyone – he was strolling up Avonleigh Rd, “sniffing the pole power” conveniently placed their on his walk!!!
    He didn’t seem to have a care in the world – I hope he found his way home…
