My new collar...

Here is a picture of me last night. Can you see I am totally naked??
Not even wearing my collar!
Why? Well... the truth is... yesterday morning my grandma took off the bandage of my paw. She cleaned it and applied the spray... and I continued liking it. Around 10 am, my Vet called to know how I was doing and my grandma told him about the licking thing and 20 minutes later he came with a headcone! He was in a rush so he told my grandma to put it on me and left my house. She took away my collar and tried to make me wear it but I refused to do it. And like magic... I did not lick my paw anymore!

When my mom came in the afternoon my grandma told her all the story. And she noticed that my collar was not in very good shape.

Today morning she went to the supermarket and there she found a pair of collars for me. One black one brown. She says those two colors combine well with all my dresses.

And now I am wearing the black one!

Here my grandma was inviting me to cuddle with her...

And I accepted her invitation...

Then she went to her bedroon and I re-arranged the cushion to...

Enjoy a good and comfy nap!

My grandma is still applying the spray to my paw and so far it looks fine.

I hope you all are having a great weekend!

The choice between wearing the collar and not licking my paw, I think I woulod have done the same thing. I bet that cone thing was scary huh??

Be good and keep not licking that paw.


Oreo said...

oh and BTW super cool collar!! I like it.


Unknown said...

oooh Lorenza, I guess that cone scared the 'bee-geebers' put of you! Good thing you decided to stop licking da would look so strange to see you with a cone on.

I just love your new collar...the diamond hearts are just perfect.

Your new collar is really cute! I knew it would be fashionable!


Teddy Westlife said...

Obviously the threat of the cone was enough! I hope your paw feels better soon. Nice collar!

How Sam Sees It said...

Oh, Lorenza! You have to leave your paws alone!

Your new collar is very pretty!


Wyatt said...

The threat of the 'cone of shame' was enough to cure your paw! Ha Ha!
Your new collar is very stylish and will look good with your fall colored dresses!

Beautiful collar, Lorenza. And your mom is smart to get some that go with all those beautiful dresses in your wardrobe. So that cone stopped your licking, eh? Phantom gets to take his off for walks and meals. Last night Mom forgot to put it back on when we came back from our walk and about a half hour later she heard him beating his paw on his face. No harm done, but the collar went right back on.

We like to do that to the covers and pillows on our sofa too.

My Mind's Eye said...

You are looking very gorgeous today!!! It is amazing that a simple black collar can be so pretty...probably because of your lovely red coat.

We are thrilled to hear you paw is well enough for you to 'rearranged' the cushions. MOL

Teddy said...

What a pretty new collar. You're lucky to get to live with your grandparents. Then you get spoiled 24 hours a day. I only get spoiled part of the day.

the many Bs said...

hi Lorenza, that's amazing how that cone worked for you and you didn't even have to put it on your head!

you made yourself a nice comfy bed when you rearranged your cushions.


The Oceanside Animals said...

Stopping the licking was a wise choice -- it got you out of wearing the Cone of Shame!


Hi Sweet Lorenza,

We have missed you too! and we luv your new fancy collar. So Chic!

Glad that your paw is getting better.

Riley and Star.

Oskar said...

I love that picture of you snuggling with your grandma!

TwoSpecialWires said...

You are one smart little dog, Lorenza. Look at how much you've learned. And how much goodness you get in return. Snuggles. Comfy pillows. And two new collars.

Keep it up. You are doing really really well.

well, hmmph. i was tryin' to woof that i was sorry that you've got a booboo on your paw. it must be so hard not to lick it when it is bothering you, but i am glad that just the threat of that stoopid cone thingie was enough to keep you from doing it.
your new collar looks grrreat! is the brown one the same pattern, or does it look different?

♥Mona + Prissy + Angel Weenie♥ said...

So glas you spotted licking your paw Lorenza. You woul;d have looked kinda silly wearing that cone on your walkies.

Very perrty coloe with bling too!!


Taffy said...

Those collars are beautiful....just like you. I'm happy your mom was able to find you some new ones since I know you can't always get pet related things. And, not having to wear a sock OR a cone makes for a great weekend! Cuddling with your humans is a wonderful thing to do, huh?

C said...

guess your Mom will need one of these tee shirts:

Koobuss said...

Way to go, Lorenza!! Keep up the good work! It;s amazing how you stopped licking your paw as soon as the lamp shade appeared. It was like magic. I tell ya, those lamp shades work wonders.

I like the new colors, too. The black one is very nice.

Your grandmother looks like a very nice lady. It's easy to see that you have her wrapped around your little paw. hehehehe...

Love and Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Sierra Rose said...

Hi Lorenza!

Ellen Whyte said...

Good to hear the paw is better - and that you got a new collar out of it too!

Please be careful. We read a lot of violent stories coming from Mexico. Dont' get caught out by those street drug thugs!

Charlotte said...

We are so happy you stopped licking your paw - nothing worse than having to wear the cone of shame!
You are sooo lucky, getting to snuggle with your grandma - we have to travel 4 hours to see ours!
Your collars are soooo pretty, we are forced to wear harnesses - cause of the back issue in dachshunds - our vet says harnesses only!

(((hugs)) your friends

Oscar the Beagle! said...

Very smart collar Lorenza - visit our blog we have an award for you!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

I'm glad you were able to stop licking the paw, Lorenza. Those cones are an awful nuisance. I guess we all get stuck in one sometime or other, but you do want to avoid it if you can.

I think the black collar is quite striking on you. Like a little black dress, a little black collar is a wardrobe must for a fashionista pup like yourself.

lotsa licks, Lola

Molly the Airedale said...

We love your new collar, Lorenza! It will go well with all of your beautiful dresses!
We're so happy to hear that your paw is doing okay!

I want to see the other collar too. I have to make sure I approve BOL

Unknown said...

Oh Lorenza - I love your new collar - especially the gorgeous little hearts! Suits you perfectly!

ocmist said...

You are a SMART girl, Lorenza, to not lick when threatened with that awful cone. I know it's hard when you itch to not lick, cause I have some problems sometimes with that too! Nice of have your grandma to snuggle with to distract you, and you did a good job of pillow plumping too! BG
