Coney the Ikebarian!


Ok, so my mom keeps calling me coney which pretty much means that I am mean and tough like Conan the Barbarian or funny and clever like Conan O'brien. Cool, huh?
My eye appears to be healing well, and I have to wear my howl projector for at least another week and will find out how much longer when I have my recheck next week with Dr. McCalla who is my eye doctor and is really smart. She help invent a supplement called OcuGlo which is like this eyeball health pill because it has antioxidants and stuff in it. So all you dogs out there who have eye health problems should probably try it because it seems to be helping me. I'm on like 40 bazillionty eye drops right now, one of which is morphine which makes me sleeeeeepy and makes me snore like a motorboat!
The first couple of days after my surgery was sooooo crappy because I had to get used to the cone and my eye was super painful and I was dumping tears down my face. But now that I'm almost a week past surgery, I feel so much better and am pretty much acting normal. Thanks for all the healing vibes you guys, I think they're helping. But please, please, please keep sending the vibes because I'm not out of the woods yet!
This is a picture of me giving my grandma the kisses. We're getting really close these days.

And here I'm telling my dad to take my howl projector off.

Ikeconey, maybe the parents could get you one of those new donut looking face protector things. Our old foster El Guapo had one. We called it the donut or noodle. Anyways, hopefully you won't be wearing it long.

We hope it goes good at the vets!

Snorts,
Stella, Gunther and Betty

Hey Ike! I think that thing is squeezing your neck because your tongue looks HOOGE in the first picture.

Hope the cone comes off soon and that you are good as new.

Life With Dogs said...

You poor thing. It will be so nice to see you freed from that contraption. :(

Peppy Sheppys said...

Ike! Our ape sez Cone-ans are ONLY good because her first dog was named Conan and was totally tuff (and totes loveable) just like you.

Hope you're feeling better, dude, so you can take that cone off yr head. When OBST had one he used it to headbutt our ma ape. Hilarious!

We are glad you are feeling better Ike. Are you gonna shred that cone thingy to little bits? We think that would be fun.

We are pleased your eye is healing, and feeling better. Another week will soon pass and the cone will come off. You might even ask for it back on because you might miss it.
