Bau: Not The Elizabethan Collar Again!

bau in the dumps

 

I am so much in the dumps. A few days ago I had surgery in my mouth. Right now I’m wearing that ridiculous Elizabethan collar, although it isn’t my first time and I’m kind of getting used to it.

Maltese are notorious for being late bloomers. Their baby teeth often come in far later than other breeds and take much longer to fall out – if they fall out at all. These toy dogs also suffer from crowding plus tartar and plaque buildup. They are known for gingivitis, periodontal disease and early tooth loss.

Here’s a link to an article about the ten dogs prone to dental disease.

This is so Humiliating

Not even a month back with my mistress and here I am with this shameful contraption around my neck. Apparently it’s so that I don’t pull out some stiches that she forced me to have. Humans can be so cruel. When she tried to take me outside I strongly protested by sitting and pulling on my leash. She picked me up and although I do love snuggling up to her I didn’t at all appreciate her taking me outside where everybody could  have a good laugh at my expense. It was totally embarrassing. I tried to keep my head down so that the other dogs wouldn’t recognize me but the cone kept getting in the way and I bumped into a bush which injured my pride. I could hardly wait to go back inside and hide.
