Guess What?

Monkey Butt.
That's what the vet called it when she had to shave a hotspot on Ray's rear end.
I've never seen a dog with such single-minded determination to lick himself raw. The vet said that hotspots in dogs are very common this time of year. So she gave him a shot and sent him home with some ointment. Seems to be working a bit already although he is still one miserable dog.


  1. well at least he can't see the embarrassing bald spot ! But he does the 'it was nothing to do with me' face really well

  2. Beautiful picture of Ray - except for the Monkey Butt...


  3. Make him a pair of shorts (like yours) to cover it up:)

  4. You guys crack me up. Every one of those comments made me laugh out loud.

  5. Oh thank goodness he was spared the indignity of having to wear a lampshade on his head!! With his little bare spot he could be mooning us all, maybe you should nickname him Mooney!! Oh wait, maybe the kitty would take offence.
