Argo has been chewing at a spot on his leg where he had a cyst. The cyst is totally benign, and it was getting better, but he will not leave it alone (which is not uncommon behavior for German Shepherds – they’re a little obsessive sometimes). And since “It won’t get better if you keep picking at it,” makes little sense to a dog we resorted to putting the e-collar on him.
It didn’t make noise, and it didn’t hurt when he rammed it into the backs of my legs. Plus, it was just plain funny. He looked like he was about to go on a sailing excursion.
