Although he would really rather not wear the bucket. (We do take it off when we can keep an eye on him.)

That's quite a piece of headgear. I've seen cones but not buckets. He doesn't look unhappy.

I've just caught up with my blog-reading... Oh Noes(!) about your puppies - how traumatic - that's the sort of thing I have nightmares about.

It's always sad to see a dog in a "cone of shame", but it is lovely to see them together, safe, and content.

If I came over and put some ice cream in that bucket, just within tongue-reach I get the feeling that little Elvis wouldn't mind so much!

So nice to see them looking happy and safe. Beautiful photos too!

Poor things. What a terrible story. Do you know the same thing happened to andy's dad and his 2 little dogs in belconnen recently. I almost thought for a second that it might have been the same one but the one that attacked them was a husky i think.

Poor bucket head Elvis - he looks so sad. Bet he'll be glad to get rid of the bucket!

BUCKETHEAD!!!
Buckethead is one of the most bizarre and enigmatic figures in American underground and experimental music since Parliament-Funkadelic birthed their bevy of cosmic characters in the mid-'70s. An accomplished multi-instrumentalist best known for his virtuosic command of the electric guitar, Buckethead is one of the instrument's most recognizable contemporary innovators, his rapid-fire riffing, near-robotic fretwork, and idiosyncratic lead lines combining elements of Yngwie Malmsteen, Adrian Belew, Slayer's Kerry King, P-Funk's Eddie Hazel, and avant-improv artist John Zorn's Scud-attack sax abuse. His first group, the San Francisco-based metal-funk combine the Deli Creeps, were a regional success, but disbanded before they could release anything. Buckethead's solo career has been more productive, thanks mostly to the motivation of Zorn and Bill Laswell, the latter of whom Buckethead has also recorded and toured with in Praxis. Laswell has also produced a number of Buckethead's solo albums (including Dreamatorium and Day of the Robot) and included him on more than a dozen one-off recordings with the likes of Hakim Bey, Bootsy Collins, Anton Fier, Jonas Hellborg, and Bernie Worrell. In addition to releases including 1998's Colma, Buckethead has also contributed soundtrack material to such films as Last Action Hero and Street Fighter. Buckethead returned in 1999 with Monsters and Robots, after which he joined the short-lived reformation of Guns N' Roses. A steady stream of releases followed into the 21st century ranging from the contemplative Electric Tears to more electronica/rock hybrid, and collaborations with San Francisco's underground hip-hop scene. In the following decade, he averaged a few releases a year, teaming up with dozens of artists, including Les Claypool, Iggy Pop, and Mike Patton, and in 2008, he collaborated with actor/musician Viggo Mortenson for Pandemonium from American.
