Yes, he's had to wear the cone of shame whenever we're not closely supervising him. It hasn't hindered his goofiness even the slightest bit.
He's been applying his substantial intellect to the cone problem. Here, he demonstrates an experiment in using his hind paws to pry it off.

We thank our puppy for entertaining us even during his coned recovery from surgery.
And we thank Brian for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop!
