Raider in his “walking” collar
Raider goes back to the Vet on Monday for a checkup. He has to wear the "cone" all of the time or he will use his foot to scratch the stitches on the back of his ear. He is not very happy. With the cone on he walks into things, he can't jump on to his couch or our bed and can't play with his chew toys. We won't know until Monday when the stitches will come out or how long he will have to continue to wear the cone. With his cone on Raider doesn’t have any peripheral vision and is easily startled by things. Also with it on he can’t sniff. What is a walk to a dog if he can’t sniff? So for walks we but this blowup collar on. Unfortunately, we can’t leave it on all the time as he is able to scratch his ear with it on. He seems to be healing well and has increased his daily walks to 4 laps around the RV Park which is just over 3 miles a day!
This is the scene that greeted us as we let Raider out first thing last Sunday morning!

Yes, it has been cold everywhere lately even here in the desert. Our week days have been clear and windy but both this weekend and last there has been snow in the local mountains.
