Oh da Horrors!

Well, momma's been threatenin me wif a visit to da vet for a while.  Mostly cuz of dat dumb ol hotspot not gettin better and just gettin worse and worse.  I's had em before, but momma has always managed to get em under control at home.


My arthur-eye-tis wuz doin a lil better today, so I may be ready for another Zombie Patrol™ on Friday.  I are not patrollin tomorrow on counts of it sposed to be rainy and stuff, so if da mommas are dumb enuf to venture out in dat, dey are just gonna have to deal wif da zombies on dere own.

Anyways, I went to see da vet.  I had to wait for a while since he'd been outta town and was apparently pretty popular.  There were a couple other dogs there waitin, a cocker spaniel and a lil dachshund.  Momma just held me in her lap so I wouldn't bark everyone too much.  I are kinda a known loudmouth round there, last time I got my teeth cleaned dey called momma early to come take me home since dey wuz tired of my barkin.

I think dey got revenge on me for all my barkins at dem.  Either dat or da vetman wanted to give me a bald spot to match his.  Yeah, dey shaved my back where da hot spot had taken over.  Let's just say it are a good thing I likes wearin clothes, cuz dis ain't pretty.


Oh my gorgeous furs!  Gone, all gone!!  I sure hope dey grow back.

Dose are da wrinkles I got.  Da vetman and all da techs are still pretty confuserated bout dem - dey don't mean anything bad, dey's just never seen a westie wif wrinkles.  But ya can see how red and inflamed my poor lil back are.  And dat it are kinda oozy and nasty-lookin, and dis are after bein medicated.  I gots some more lotion for my back and da vetman wants me on steroids for a few days too (which means I gotta stop takin my Metacam for a few days since he don't want me on steroids and an NSAID at da same time).


Dis are not a good look.  And I are not a happy dog.  Da only good part of da day wuz dat da mommas went to Whataburger on da way home from da vet and I gotta eat fries in da car.  And some fries at home too.  I don't think frenchie fries make up for dis though, I think I deserved a whole Whataburger.  And some new clothes, I are definitely gonna need em to hide dis.

Finley's momma are already at work sewin right now.

  2. OMD Whitley, you poor girl! It's so not right for them to shave a lady like you bald like that. Maybe Ernie the attorney will see this post and something can be done?

  4. Crikey Whitley ..... I reckon TWO whataburgers are needed for that and at least two new dresses too. No sign of those roo sticks, aye?? They should be there by now. They'd make you feel better!! Maybe those customs blokes liked the look of 'em.
    Sure hope that hot spot clears up soon.

  7. Now just a second here-your furs are your clothes. Does the vet and/or Mom walk around naked? I think not.

    1. Da vetman - I don't think so, at least I hope not.

      My momma - well, she wears her bikini pretty much non-stop in da summer, but dat are some clothes. I guess. Even if da weirdo hyper-religious neighbors wif da super long hair and da skirts look disapprovin.

Da clothes wuz just da same old cotton dresses and fleecey jackets and I wuzn't wearin em at night (which wuz when I wuz scratchin and makin everything worse).

  13. OMD!! What a traumatic time you are having, and then to have your nakedness exposed, sheesh. Furry deserving of treats evfurry hour, and then other treats on the half hours inbetween...and a whole new wardrobe.
    Wowee, them wrinkles are so weird, has anyfur or vet done research about why you has those?

    And POTP to get that all healed up. Hey, maybe some sunshine directly on it may be helpfur...growlmy used to work in a dermatology unit and UV light helped a lot of skin issues.

  34. Oh Whitley what a shock to see how they shaved you. Why I am thinking you have an inner Chinese Shar-Pei wanting to come out. Maybe you need an Exorcism to get rid of that devil that is causing those hot spots to occur. Maybe you need a priest and not a vet. Glad you have all those pretty dresses, why when you put them on no one will notice. I think you are beautiful no matter what.
    Thanks for being a friend
