Collies are good at problem-solving. It's one of the endearing features of the breed. Last night Byron realised he wasn't going to be able to get his cone of shame off, and set about trying to solve the problem of how to get at his wound because it was itching. The solution he hit upon was to rub it on the carpet... He was in danger of re-opening it, and was making the most heartbreaking piteous mewling sound I have ever heard, so this morning he has been back to the vet for some more painkillers, which will hopefully numb it. He's not crying now, anyway. He's taken to lying in the doorway, which is tiled, and I think the coolness of the tiles is helping.

Thank you all for the love and support and get well cards and donations and everything. You're all so lovely, and I'm completely bowled over by the level of concern.

Rest assured he is getting lots of cuddles and pampering (and home-cooked food, at the moment, because he has to have soft food after having had a tube down his throat for the anaesthetic). Hopefully the results of his biopsy will be back tomorrow and we'll know better what the prognosis is.

Poor Byron. :(

I hope the pain eases off soon, and the biopsy brings good news.

I'm so glad he's doing a bit better today. I hope the improvements continue.

Poor little lad. He deserves lots of soft cuddles.


I miss my collie, now. :(

When we share our lives with animals, the heartbreak of not being able to explain to them WHY they're going through such troubles can be overwhelming.

Your cuddles tell him everything he needs to know -- something's wrong, but he has you.

Collies and their damned cleverness! I hope the painkillers are working a treat - Metacam is a wonder-drug in our household for poorly doggies so hopefully it or its ilk is working for Byron. But what a clever dog finding relief from cool tiles!

Give him a shnurfle from me, Marley and Bella, and I will be keeping everything crossed that all turns out well for him tomorrow.

Aw, poor Byron, but I admit I laughed at the image of him rubbing his belly on the carpet with the Cone of Shame around his head.

Hope the additional painkillers help.
