Thank you both for your advice. I seriously would go crazy if I couldn't get the advice from all of you dog experts on this website! It does make sense that I haven't seen the smegma in the past since he is very good about cleaning himself and now he can't....I hadn't thought of that. I will wash it off for him and see if he will let me put an ice pack on him. He is finally relaxing now and taking a nap .

Cooper's set up for tonight . We moved our full size mattress to the floor next to our bed so Cooper can either lay in his crate, on his dog bed, or on our full size mattress which I will sleep on. Hopefully this will work much better than last night's arrangements!

Hehe...I think it was. He was still pretty restless last night though. I think it is that horrible cone's fault! He is now napping next to me on the living room floor .

Awww, your people really love your very very much, Cooper. Bear with the cone a bit more and you'll be free to romp, play, jump, and go back to your regular routine in no time.

This is a great setup you made up. I hope he gets used to the cone enough so that you can both rest at night.

Yes, so true. We do love him very much!! I've never had my own dog before and I never thought I could love a pet this much. But he is our big baby!

I'll let Cooper know you are thinking about him. He seems to be moving around a lot better with the cone today so I'm hopefully he (and my husband and I!!) will get a good night's sleep! Thank you for checking in .

We finally got a good night's sleep! Cooper was up 3 or 4 times during the night to adjust his position but otherwise he slept all night! I think we are all feeling much better today and we are on our way out the door for a nice walk. We have only been going on short walks but I think we are going to add a little bit of distance on this morning since Cooper needs to get some crazies out .
