When Goober had to have surgery - and consequently wear the cone of shame - his mom had an idea to try and make the whole experience a little more fun. How? By turning the cone of shame into a martini glass.
"He had surgery around Halloween and I never really dressed him up, but figured I couldn't pass up the opportunity," Stephanie Ogozaly, Goober's mom, told The Dodo. "I can't say he was a big fan of it, as immediately after the picture was taken he shook the 'olives' off, but he was a good sport."
The cone of shame is not something most pets look forward to. Cats and dogs everywhere are most likely counting the minutes and seconds until they can be free of the cone forever. But since it's a necessary evil, some pets and their parents decide to try and make the best of it.
Like Goober, another dog named Bud was feeling a little down about his cone, so his parents decided to lift his spirits by turning him into a beautiful flower.
"This was the second time he needed the cone, so we thought we'd dress him up a little for it," Bud's owner told The Dodo. "He adapts well but looks a bit down, so we spent the afternoon cutting up felt and hung out with him while he recovered from surgery."
