State of Zoe: New Duds

When last we saw Zoe, she was in a. funny little outfit designed by her mother to keep her from continuing to pull out the stitches from her spaying. What a dilemma. Vet office closed, computer tech on the way, what was a mom to do? I called Zoe’s groomer who had to pass my house anyway on his daily drive back from his business in Ajijic to Guadalajara, where he lives, so I asked him to bring a cone, hoping it would keep her from totally disemboweling herself. You saw the result which I will duplicate at the end of this blog, but yesterday I took Zoe to the vet to have her check her out and she had a better solution to the problem. Here is thoroughly modern Zoe, transformed from sunbonnet girl to a stylish gym suit model. She’s soooo cute and no more nibbling at her stitches. Here is Zoe now:
She has no objection to her new attire. Not so with Mom’s former solution to the problem:

Which look do you prefer? Luis, the computer tech guy who was one of three of us needed to pin her down to clothe her in her former protective attire said she looked like something from “Little House on the Prairie.”

      My mother used to dress our little dogs and even our raccoon up, but I never did. Seeing Zoe now, though, I may be tempted. She’s started chwing on the neck of her little outfit though, so we’ll see how long it lasts.

      She is so tiny that even a baby’s T shirt would have been too big, and this one has an opening for the tail so it doesn’t have to be removed for her to answer the cals of nature.

      I’ll pick her up and snuggle her for you. I keep wanting to do the same and I agree about the color. The vet picked it. Good color sense. Or perhaps this is the only color she hd in her size!!!
