What Happened To Me?

Today I had a very stressful & tiring day. I will not tell you what I did today but I will tell you what stuff is growing on me these past three days. Last week, I woke up with a very huge red lump on top of my lip. I don't know what it is but it burns when my mommy touches it or when I lick it.

You see it?

Eeew, what's that? Mommy thinks that a bug bit me in the middle of the night but I didn't feel anything when it did. Maybe it was becoz I was dreaming of delicious juicy steak floating in the air...

After the "business" I had to attend to today, we went to the vet's to check about that red lump & the other black scaly stuff on me. The doctor checked but couldn't find what's the cause of me having that red lump & those black scaly stuff. He just said that I have skin problems...

See the red lump! It has gotten worst after three days & it's red & fleshy...

This is one of the black thingy under mah belly. That little dot beside it is another one. Just beginning to form... My belly has got three & one of them is on my nipple, one on my leg, one on mah nose & I'm sure there are more forming somewhere on me.

These are all mah medication, anti-fungal & anti-bacterial cream. Sooo much! But it's for my own good so, I will tolerate them. I also got a jabbie straight into my tummy, ouch!

Why are these happening to me just before the dog event? I have to look mah very best for the performances but, sigh... I've been shaved here & there but good thing, it's not that visible. Thank DOG for that!

I hope all these icky stuff will disappear soon. Mommy is very upset... I'm very exhausted now & depressed too, so I'm just gonna snooze till tomorrow morning. Hopefully when I wake up, I will be free of disgusting lumpy stuff!
