You think you had a bad day?

I couldn’t resist posting this pic.

Mr. Basketmaker’s new rescue dog had his little “alteration” surgery and wouldn’t leave it alone so he had to wear the dreaded lampshade collar. And if that wasn’t enough torture, Chance got to stick his nose in and really rub it in. However, the lampshade did not last long — he figured out how to get that thing off rather quickly.


This image creepily reminds me of the torture scene written by George Orwell in his book 1984. You know, the one with the cage over their heads? If you read the book, you know what I’m talking about. If you didn’t read the book then trust me, you don’t want to know.

I read that book in high school and I still remember the words he wrote and can picture it in my head to this day. I really wish I selected Animal Farm to read instead, way back then, but I heard that was a bizarre book as well.
