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…

Dinner at Daniele's Casa Mia

A few years back, I was going to random unknown restaurants and trying out new food. Daniele's was this little place by the side of the road where you had to walk in a tiny way to enter the place. I didn't know what the food would be like. I entered the tiny place amused by its Italian theme and sat down to eat. To my surprise, the owner of the restaurant came in to check each table if the food was to the customer's taste. "This guy's a real Italian, complete with the look, the accent, and all;" I thought to myself as I continued eating what was served.

The food was delicious, the service was pleasant, and the place was homey. I had gone back 2 to 3 more times and each time, it was great service, and the food was exquisite. A few years had passed and I had tried multiple new restaurants that was built around the area, but I hadn't forgotten about that little Italian restaurant. Simply put, I wanted to know how the place was doing.

I'd returned last night with a special someone to share the experience with. I was thoroughly entertained that when I googled it, so many things came up. I was even more delighted to see how the place has transformed since I last visited. It had won awards, renovated into a bigger area, but maintained it's homey feel.
