Stay Aware: How to Treat Hot Spots on Dog and Why This Happens

WARNING: Sensitive images ahead.

I recently had to bring my dog to the vet for what seemed to be a skin condition. I took my dog grooming on Saturday and all was well with the groomer being able to handle him without even having to put a muzzle on him, which was rare since my dog's pretty defensive when being groomed. He had a nice cut and looked like a baby seal.

From this:
To this:
Two days later, I noticed two little spots (about a half inch) on his body which seemed to be just irritated skin. I gave him a bath thinking his skin must have gotten irritated somewhere. It didn't look bad, just a little pink.

On the third day, both spots had wounds. Now, they had some sort of liquid coming out of them. I cleaned the two areas with Hydrogen Peroxide (not a good idea - it was obviously painful - read on) and Betadine.

On the fourth day, I came home from work to find that the hair on top of the wounds have hardened by some liquid and I gave him another bath to wash it off. I notice…

Kulay-Diwa Gallery

While searching for a place good enough to have a nice relaxing time in, we decided to choose something nearby that wouldn’t cost as much - since being an employed person gives you so much free time and a lot of allowance after bills. -_-

We found a nice little cozy gallery online called Kulay-Diwa Gallery and decided to go for it because, wait for it... it’s FREE.

Here are some photos from the gallery and how our little trip was spent:

When we got there, it was just a big gate, no signs, no nothing. So we thought, "well.." but since it's free and we did read somewhere that it was a private gallery, we decided to go in. When we entered, it was literally a house - with cars parked, a nice pool, and some doors by the middle. We were greeted by a man who I suppose was a keeper there, he didn't say much. We had called in first to check if it was open and we needed to give our names and the time we were coming in. He was the guy on the phone.

Behind the door was a little office with nice artwork on the walls. And so, we figured "This is a nice start; not a scary house where no one would hear our screams." Even the ceiling was pretty.

We went in the left door and saw a guest signing sheet and a pamphlet for "awareness..." of something. Sorry, I had taken a photo of it but can't find my copy. The guest signing table was along a hallway with I believe around 4 to 6 art works (canvass and photos) on the wall. We figured it was just the start and we'd be seeing more as we went along.

We went left at the end of the hallway (the only way to go) and saw a big room. Yes, just one room with two walls and a few photos. This is all I'm posting, because I'm leaving the other little walls (the hallway and the other wall) a mystery.

There was something interesting in the middle of the room.

Just 'cause it's a pretty garage door.

There isn't really much to see in here, and it was extremely hot inside with no air condition, a fan, or even windows. If and only if you have 20 minutes spare time, and patience for hot weather would I suggest going here.

I'd give this place:
