Weekend Wind-Down #112

OREO 5340

Last Friday, Missy took OREO back to the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia. Oreo had been messing with the STITCHES on her belly, and it looked a little bleedy. Fortunately, it just looked much worse than it actually was and Oreo came back home sporting a plastic COLLAR around her little head, to prevent her from chewing at her wound. Well, the "funnel" didn't stay around her neck that long - she was having trouble eating with it on and...she looked pretty ridiculous. We could tell that it was messing with her self-esteem! So, after just a day of humiliation, we took it off of her...and luckily, she hasn't been messing much with her stitches ever since...
