Monday Mischief #69 – Dog DIY Cone


Mr. N was scratching and licking at himself so much a few weeks ago due to his flea allergy, I decided he needed a cone. And this was around ten pm so my options were severely limited. His last cone had cracked and been thrown away. 

So I googled and one website suggested putting a paper plate on small dogs. Didn’t have those either. I looked around and spotted a cardboard box and cut that up. Mr. N didn’t mind too much as the cardboard was fairly flexible and went back to sleep. The next day, I borrowed a real cone from a friend.
I thought he looked like he was in a pillory while the boyfriend said it reminded him of the cat breading meme. 
What emergency or DIY solutions have you put together for your dog?

    Great idea! I would have never thought of that. Of course, I might have to find something other than cardboard since Haley loves shredding boxes. I hope Mr N gets some relief soon from the itching.

    LOL about the pillory. It does kind of look like that. Very creative! Once our beagle was itching like mad in the night and I didn't have a cone so i tried putting her in a tank top. Shut the light off and within seconds she was out of it. Then put her in a Tshirt. Again, light off. Dog naked in 10 seconds. Then tried a turtleneck. At last – success! Sometimes we have to get creative when you need a cone and don't have one. (Wish I had pics/video of that night.)
