Dad Gets His Own ‘Cone Of Shame’ So Dog Doesn’t Feel So All Alone

This is Ollie, a wonderful puppy who has no need to be embarrassed.

And he has a friend who will inform him.


Ollie had minor surgery the other day, which resulted in a few stitches. Following that, he was fitted with a protective collar, colloquially known as the “cone of shame,” to allow the wound to heal without being disturbed.

This, of course, was not a welcome addition to the pup’s wardrobe.

“Ollie was just miserable with the cone on,” Ollie’s owner, Alex, told The Dodo. “He was basically moping around, feeling sorry for himself.”


When Alex’s father noticed Ollie was feeling lonely and depressed because he had to wear the cone, he decided to try to relieve the dog’s mind by joining him in his inconvenient situation.

He found another cone in the family’s storage room and placed it on himself.

When Alex went to find Ollie and her father, she came across the following:

“I just chuckled and called my mother to come and see,” Alex explained.

They weren’t the only ones whose moods were brightened by Dad’s thoughtful gesture.

“Ollie definitely seemed a little happier,” Alex added.

Fortunately, the cones were only temporary for both Ollie and Alex’s father.


Ollie has since had his stitches removed and has been given permission to remove his “cone of shame.” Alex’s father, of course, followed suit, his empathic gestures having aided Ollie’s recuperation while also providing Dad with a better understanding of what the pup had been going through.

“Ollie is doing incredibly well. His stitches have healed beautifully “Alex stated. “They’re both no longer wearing cones. Ollie was only had to wear it for a week. My father lasted only a few hours!”
