Days of bad skin and dreadful cone

Can I whine somemore?

I'm not sure if the ticks had to do with my itchy and bad skin. My tail and rump were so itchy I kept biting on them and ended up with raw, bleeding skin. Of course my pawrents were very worried and decided to torture me further by applying medication on the wounds and forcing me to wear the dreaded e-collar.

You probably can't see my wounds very well in the pictures. Well, I must say they were nasty! And the one on my rump left a scar or some kind of dark pigmentation on my skin after the wound was healed.

And don't get me started on the e-collar! I was so unhappy and uncomfortable wearing that damm thing! I couldn't walk or pee properly when I was out on my daily walks. And some idiots didn't know what the e-collar was for and thought it was some kind of dog umbrella! You see, one evening when mummy and I were out for a walk, it started to drizzle. When we passed by a group of teenagers under the block, one of them commented loudly "hey look at that dog and the cute thing that he is wearing! Is that his umbrella?!"

Mummy and I tried not to laugh out loud.

Poor Chow Chow!!! Both Hershey and I detest the e-collar with a passion... our (evil) dad likes to refer to it as a 'satellite dish'... when Hershey was spayed recently, she had to put on the e-collar and dad commented that her 'reception must be good cos the satellite is so big'!!

Did your mom take you to the vet? Sometimes the itchies can be caused by the ticks even though the ticks are physically gone. (I had the same problem before). Apparently those %$#!@* ticks have a secretion that they inject into our skins (especially when they are forceably removed), which can cause allergies.

Big hugs and hope your skin heals up soon...

Oh no, Chow Chow - you poor thing! I hate wearing that kind of collar too - it's enough to make any doggie depressed!
