Spot the Dog

The usually handsome Stan has marred his good looks with a case of, what looks like, teenage acne.

These started off as a couple of tiny bumps under his skin and by evening one had erupted.  The next morning he looked like this.

Antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, ointment, antiseptic and sixty seven euros later, the vet thinks he had been rummaging about in a plant to which he had a reaction.  There are all sorts of plants in our garden – cultivated and otherwise – so I don’t know which one would have done this.  There are some euphorbia, the sap of which I know can be nasty.

Anyway, hopefully he will have his looks back again soon.

    Poor Stan! He’s still handsome, even with the spots.

    I agree – he still looks handsome!

    Takes me back to my acne days – a terrible teenage time – although I don’t think mine were caused by a reaction to euphorbia…but who knows!
