Our dogs are city dogs. They are accustomed to walking on soft yard grass and pavement. But, they love to pretend to be country dogs...running through a pasture, digging in a creek bottom, chasing little country animals. You get the idea.
But, it's hard to be country dog when you are most definitely a city dog. Juhu is living proof....his little feet were so tender and sore after running free for 4 days that he began compulsively nibbling on his toes once he got back to city life. The nibbling evolved into full fledged chewing and now even his little lips are a raw mass from all his obsessiveness.
Therefore, the cone collar. His face looks so sad and his little tail is so droopy.
