Ouchies and Vet appts!

So mom has been getting a lot of grief because she lets my brother Oakley post more blogs than me. I know mom loves us both the same and it is fine with me that he gets to post more. He's a little crazy so he has had more adventures to talk about. I had an adventurous last few days and I would have much rather not have.

On Saturday night mom was trying to break up a wrestling match between us when she felt something crusty behind my ear. We had just had a bath a couple days before so she was wondering what it could possibly be. She turned on the bright light to find that I had an ouchie! It was crusty and red, she started worrying that maybe I had ringworm or something worse. I don't know what ringworm is but no kinds of worms sound good to us doggies. She was worrying so much she went to our upstairs neighbor who works at a Vet office and asked her if she would come take a look. She told mom it wasn't that worm thing and that she should take me to the Vet on Monday but not to worry that it wasn't contagious to my lil brother. So mom tried not to worry so much. Thankfully our neighbor was right, the Vet Dr. Man checked me out and said I had something I must've been allergic too and it gave me the itchies. He gave me some cream stuff to put on it and it is already looking and feeling better. I would not let mom get a picture of it to post but I did let her get a picture of me in my new shirt! It was my going to see the Dr. Man present. I don't understand how though since my brother got one too! He doesn't know it yet but he has to go to the Vet place this week to get his pokie and check up he's due for haha! Shhhhh! Nobody tell him. I have to get a pokie that day too but I can take it like a man. Last time I got a pokie my face blew up like a balloon and I had to stay at the Vet place all day hopefully that won't happen again. I hope!
Have a great day everyone! Lots of Licks---Swisher


  1. My face swells when I get my pokie too. The vet told mom to give me a bendadryl before we head to the vet to help with the allergic reaction and it helps. Glad to hear that your ouchie wasn't anything serious.


  2. I hope you get better soon and I hope you don't blow up after you get pokied!!!! Love the new shirts!!
