Alayne took this photo a couple of weeks ago so it’s not a new one — Wilbur’s corneal ulcer has since healed and our ophthalmologist said the cone could come off, so he’s a different boy these days. But I’d forgotten we had this shot, and I thought it was so cute of these two sleeping side by side like that. Little Wilbur, all of 8 pounds, and big blind Stella at 80 pounds. Her head alone must weigh more than Wilbur’s entire body!
Yes, we went through the cranky Wilbur stage when that cone first went on, but now he’s happy to be cone-free again. No more whining, so he’s back to spending the night in the living room. Here’s a shot Alayne took last night about 10 p.m., before we put him up in his “boat” (because he pees overnight, that’s why!):
I’m sure he was thinking, “Oooh, this is nice, I don’t have to share it with an 80 lb dog!”
