Paging Dr. Hibbert....

This is Krusty...
and so is this...

Sorry for the blurry photo, but you get the point. For the last week, Mom has noticed this krustiness at the corner of my mouth. At first she thought I was getting lazy and not washing my face after I ate (silly woman) so she washed my face...but it didn't go away. Than she noticed one day it was krusty and the next pimply.

Mom finally had enough and as usual made me go to the vet. I feel fine, but she's such a worry wart. So off to the vet I go and guess what??? They really don't know what it is!!! They think it might be an infection so I am now on antibiotics for 2 weeks...YES, 2 WEEKS!!!!! If it doesn't clear up by then they are going to do a bio-popsy which doesn't sound good at all...so cross your paws I don't have to do that!!! And here I wanted to be all pretty for my Nanny's visit...hopefully Nanny will still think I'm cute.

Oh and Mom, is this your idea of a joke?
SO not funny!!!

The humans are such freaks. Whenever us dogs get a teenty tiny little medical problem they're all freaked out and running us to the V.E.T. Ugh. We hope the meds work so you don't have to go back!!!

Hi Ruby,

Oh I'm sorry Ruby about your mouth - that's no fun!

Thank you for voting for me! If elected Chin of the year I promise to never answer my cell phone during a speech or make a loud cackle laugh or wake up stinky and snorey. I will just be a perfect angel of a Chin as always.

Does it hurt Ruby? It looks like it might hurt. I had a pimple on my chin once, and my mama showed it to everyone. I was mortified.

Ruby,

You are still cute, I hope the owie gets better real soon, tell your Mom to back off already with the Vet.

So I get to go to the BT Halloween day on Sunday, promise me you won't play in any mud, I really detest mud. Hope hoomans don't have to dress up, cause I don't want to wear one.

Kirby said... 8:13 PM

Hi Ruby,

Oh, I hope the pills clear up your krustys. Don't want you to have a bio-popsy. That don't sound like too much fun. I am in love with my vet, so if you want a second opinion and have time to visit Chicago, I highly recommend her. Hope everything clears up nicely and nanny will love you no matter what!

Your pal,
Kirby

Luckie Girl said... 9:29 PM

Don't worry, girl, you still look bootiful! :)

Oh, and the hope that memin (that's what Ava calls "medicine"!) isn't too yucky.

Puggy kisses

Sir Chance-Lot said... 6:01 AM

Oh Ruby I hope your sore will get better. This happened to one of my mammas dogs years ago, before she went "all green", and it turned out that it was a reaction to pesticide that had been spread on the lawn by a lawn fixing company.

Everything from what our mamma s wash the floor with to the soap they use in the dishwasher can cause big trouble for our mammas AND us. Most mammas does not know how seriously bad the toxic chemicals really are ( cause no one tells them, and OMdog, you would think that the big companies like proctor and Gamble/Johnson and Johnson, palmolive to mention just a few, would NOT use these dangerous toxins in their products, but they do cause it is cheap preservatives) that are found in 99% of all supermarket/k-mart/wallmart/drugstores..etc.
Unless mammas buy from companies that specifically use no toxic or bad chemcials...the products will have chemicals like formaldehyde/phosphate.dioxin/ammonia/bleach...etc
Even Tide detergent is full of phosphate and formyldehyde that causes all sort of diseases, including cancer, and think about this...where does all of it go, it goes from our dishwashers, waasher machines, showers and baths, down the drains, and into the soil, into the rivers, and to the oceans, and from there the chemicals hurt fish and wild life all through the world...( when scientists test the water in the rivers and oceans, they find lots of pesticide, and toxic chemicals in the water)
I get kind of RABID mad at companies that care more about $$ than everyones health!!
SOooooo. the best thing to do is to stop buying from them and switch to a company that does not use any of these chemicals....
like
www.saferforyourhome.com
www.melaleuca.com
( and more and more companies are entering the markets now that are much safer)

My mamma has been a customer for years and she loves them, cause they are cheap too ;O)...just tell her if you like to try, cause she can hook you up with whole sale prices..:O)))

Check this out too....

Butchy & Snickers said... 1:18 PM

Hey Ruby,
You could actually have what is called Doggy Zits. Some breeds are more prone to having this. The bloody crusty sores appear like zits at first then burst open. They can appear on the lips, chin & we think the feet. Also, do you eat out of a plastic bowl?? If so, that could be causing the problem too. Oils stay on the plastic bowls contributing to the problem. Let us know how you come out.
Your Mama's picture of you is NOT funny, (tee hee!)
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
