I put the cone on Gordon tight enough that he probably won’t be able to remove it, but not so tight that it chokes him. He’s a little bummed out by the situation 🙁 He had a great time hiking though! We went to Chabot, it was pretty mellow. There were some other groups of dogs along the way including 2 big Shepherds. Gordon was nice though 🙂 I hope you have a happy Independence Day!
