Popping my pimples

February 21 /09

Pimple Update: The lab results for my chest pimple are back and it turns out I had a benign hystiocytoma - a scary name but totally harmless. My teenage acne on my face is unrelated although it's possible my raging man-hormones are the cause of both. What a man I'm turning into!

My stitches are a little itchy so I have to wear Mama's stupid-looking snood when I go outside so my tags don't rub on my incision. And new pimples are popping up all over my face. So today I figured maybe Mama's vacuum could suck them up, but it didn't work. But who cares? I'm healthy and that's all that matters, right?

You can hear Papa telling the vacuum to shh ... it's so freakin' loud; drives us men nuts.

Anyway, can you think of a fun way for me to pop my pimples? And should I wipe the pus up with a Kleenex or aim it at Beauty? Heh heh.

Nothing, Beauty. I didn't say a word. Really.


Kards for Klaus: As you all probably know by now, our pal Bogart's dad is very sick. Klaus is in the hospital and all us DWBers are getting together to let him, Lulu and Bogie know we're praying for a miracle that he gets better soon. Please send him your picture with a short message, or just a message to: klaus@dogswithblogs.com.au by Wednesday, Feb. 25. Include your blog address in your email. Opy's and Charlie's mom will be putting our pictures and get well messages in an album which she'll send to Klaus. I'm sure it will make him very happy to know we are thinking of him. Hugs to Bogie, Lulu and Klaus.

Hi, Chef...

I'm sooo glad your bumps were nothing to be worried about...

I can't believe you get that close to the vacuum cleaner...You are very brave...

Abby xxxooo

Poor Chef - it's a shame you can't grow out a beard until the pimples go away. The next time I get stripped, I'll have the groomer save some hair to make you a nice chest toupee as well!

Did you see that Tanner's spot has almost entirely disappeared?

Good news!

Your pal,

Glad your pimples are harmless and you're healthy. Are you a teenager?

Joe Stains said...

Mason Dixie said...

I am glad you are okay. And I would just be clean when popping do not want to get an infection. =)

Moco said...

I'm glad that your lump is okay Chef and I bet you look kewl in a snood. Your banner picture is very handsome, it's hard to imagine you're suffering with adolescent spots.

Mango said...

You will need some Clearasil for your next show (wouldn't want pimples showing in the ring).

Nice job with the housework. My stupid brother does the same thing.


Rambo said...

yes...aim for Beauty. That would be funny.....he he.

Homer said...

Hi Chef,

Lots of facial, cucumber masks, toner and moisturiser can help to calm those angry acne???

Also, concealer helps to hide those spots especially when you are going for a hot date.

Good luck! Hope your stitches recover soon.

Gee Chef...

Thanks fer stoppin' by....we're all (all 5 of us includin' us 3 doggies)leavin' fer Florida on Friday and we'll be there fer the month of March....Gram has just had brain drain lately and hasn't been bloggin' at all....'n then we're not doin' anythin' when she gets out the camera so there's nothin' ta report either...although Toby barks like a nut when Gram runs the vacuum too and she has ta lock 'em outta the room when she runs it.....

Sorry ta hear about yer Zits....sheesh...we never knew doggies got zits at all.....hope ya get over it 'n don't have ta take that horrible medicine that teenagers have ta take cause we hear there's lots of horrible side affects ta it.....now my doggie Gram, Sporty, has a ton of warts all over 'er...'n the vet says she can't do anythin' about 'em...can ya imagine ???? Every time ya pet 'er...ya feel warts.....

We're supposed ta have internet access while we're in the Sunshine State so hopefully we'll have somethin' ta report while we're there.....

We hate this winter weather and there seems ta be no end ta it at all....bet yer freezin' yer booties off up there.....we are just waitin' ta feel some nice warm sun...pretty soon 'n we will....

Hope yer feelin' better soon and yer zits clear up....scary stuff....since ya sure don't expect doggies ta get any....

We hear tell that Spring is comin' soon....yep....'n Santa's comin' soon too....

We went over and visited Bogart today and are hoping his dad feels better soon. We were happy the hospital was kind enough to allow Bogart to visit with Klaus, that was a wonderful thing. I hope your zits clear up soon!

We have sent our picture for Bogart's dad too. We hope he gets the miracle that he needs.

Lots of Luv & Kisses

Hi Chef,

Thank you for your lovely message about Lemon and Hsin-Yi's father. It's great to have such wonderful friends.

I used to have acne too when I was younger - they were all over and underneath my chin...yuck! Especially as I drool a lot and there are loads of folds of skin on my face - it was a great place for bacteria! Thankfully, they seemed to clear up by themselves as I got older - although my humans helped by trying to keep my mouth/chin dry and clean.

Hope you get rid of yours soon too!

Eric said...

You need to zap those zits pronto Chef and impress the girls with your raging manliness. That sound sooo impressive. Did I miss that stage out then when they stole my crown jewels? And yeah aim the splat at Beauty. He.he.

Wiry wags, Eric xx

You are turning into a REAL Man Chef.. Sure glad everything is ok..

Chef, I'm glad the sweater keeps you warm during the cold walk. Oh you're just so sweet, I think the sweater is just a bit tight for you. In MangoMinster, I saw another doggy who wore exact same sweater in the ring, wow!
But why do you have to walk during pricky snowy weather, throw that sweater out and roll under the blankie just like I always do in winter. Just add your mom cuddling next to you then your life would be perfect.
Chef, I don't forget you, I have been busy doing research about to pop or not to pop the zits!
Let hormome run its course, Chef, manly man!

happy said...

Hi Chef! You're having pimples? You must be a teen now. Glad to know the bumps are harmless though. Will be keeping Bogart's dad in our thoughts and prayers.

Deetz said...

I am so glad it was benign....Don't zap the zits, it will leave scars..but, it would work out great come time for Pirate dress up.

Sophie Brador said...

Chef! I'm so glad you are just becoming a manly man and there is nothing horrible wrong with you. You are too handsome for horrible wrongness.

No puppies for us. Mom was very interested in those two doodles, but they were both already adopted. Then she found out the woman who was finding them homes bought them in a pet store to "rescue" them from a puppy mill. So the story was not quite what it appeared to be. Mom thinks this woman's intentions are good, but she doesn't seem to understand that she's just supporting the puppy mills by buying those dogs.

oh boy. It's a tough one.

Miss you lots! Hope to see you soon.

It sounds like somedoggie needs a little "Proactive". Just like Jessica Simpson says "just a little dab, that's all you need"
