Meet Lizzy

We have learned that what we call Punky's cone is really called an Elizabethan Collar. Therefore, I have nicknamed it: her friend Lizzy. Punk and Lizzy have learned to be quite good friends. We have decided that Punky would be a poster child for animals with disabilities. She was sad at first, allowed herself to go through the grieving process of living with a giant cone on her head (Lizzy), and is now back to her old self. I believe she has resigned to the fact that she will just live the rest of her life with Lizzy on her head and that is how it will be. No real need for peripheral vision. No real need for exiting doors without knocking into them. Nope, she is adaptable, and therefore will just move on with life. Seriously, we could all learn a little something from Punky's attitude. She has even embraced it and developed new games with Lizzy....





As you see in these photos, she throws her bone into the collar and then flings her head up in the air to throw the bone up in the air, and then it lands again inside of Lizzy. She's just brilliant. And a survivor. Little does she know, Lizzy will be leaving us on Wednesday, lets hope she does not go through the grieving process again after losing her new buddy.
