Still no monster...

.. instead, you get poor, conehead Tux.
"I do NOT like this cone"


And why is Tux in a cone? Well, he has a growth on his leg, and last night, it burst. Now every time he licks it, it starts bleeding again. I woke up this morning to a house that looked like a crime scene. (You can see the blood on the mattress behind him.) So up we went to the vet. We came home with a cone, some antibiotics (because he's diabetic and the wound is on an extremity, the vet was worried) and a quote for some very costly surgery that he'll need to have done in the near future.
His poor shaved paw. The growth is like a cluster of blood filled sacs,
though the vet says there is something hard in there

To help cover the costs of his surgery, we've got a sale going in the shop. We've extended our Customer Appreciation sale, so use the code LOVE15 and you'll save 15% off your purchase. Every skein sold will help.
'I really do NOT like this cone!!!"
I've also put my patterns on sale for 25% off. (With the exception of Chuck and Katherine, which raise money for charities) - no code necessary. Any purchase is greatly appreciated!
"Wait.... does cone mean I get extra lovin'.... and maybe some tuna???"
Thank you!

EDIT:
I had to share this pic of my faithful knitting companion on a better day
We still knit like this frequently (though not with the cone!)

Poor Tux , that looks painful ! Hope that the surgery goes well and that you get a lot of sales to help out with the vet bills . Mike just bought me an early birthday gift ;-)) .

That is such a sweet picture of you and Tux . He sure knows how to pick his spot !

I started perusing the shop last night but got sidetracked with a big fight between the two hoodlums and hauled the rotor for the night. (Fighting over a computer when there's two other laptops and another computer in the house! AND two iPads!) So I will continue tonight. :)
