You'll never guess what the vet says I have - zits! - that's right- adolescent acne! Can you believe it??
Pimples - oh man!
Yesterday was my long-awaited vet appointment to have my spots tested. Well, they've been getting steadily better, especially the one on my chest. The one on my face is wierd - it keeps changing, from red to pink and back to red, bigger, smaller - I think it's alive. Anyway, Dr. Marlene took a long, hard look at me and found some matching spots starting to erupt under my chin and near my mouth and she now thinks I have infected teenage pimples. It's so gross. I'm suppose to get some medication to clear it up, though.
But hey, now I'm thinking maybe I should be proud of my splotchiness. Don't pimples mean that my manly hormones are roaring through my body and I'm about to become totally virile and irresistible??
I kind of wish my pimples weren't pink, though, but anyway.The thing is, I'm on the brink of manhood and I'm going to wear my pimples proudly. Geez, I wonder if my bark is going to get deeper and if I'm going to grow man-whiskers. Wow! Wouldn't that be cool? Muzzle stubble! Then I could shave. Or maybe I'll grow a moustache.
"Bonjour Chou Chou. Voulez-vous couchez avec moi ce soir??
What d'ya think?
Anyway, Mama and Papa are so happy about my acne, they're talking about making me a Bark Mitzvah. That's a big celebration that marks a Jewish boy's entry into manhood. You'll all be invited to hear me read my Arf Torah and then we'll eat, drink and dance and party til dawn. Then we can all play ice pucky the next day. We can make this a huge event - I'll keep you posted.
Thanks to all of you who wished me well during my big health scare, and for helping my Mama worry. Big hugs!!

Wasn't Mango Minster the most fantastic production? I made a commemorative ribbon as a gift for my relentlessly huge and handsome buddy to pass on to all the participants. Being a show dog myself, I just had to contribute something, so now everyone can have a prize and a keepsake, with my compliments. Below is a sample.
