What is it with teenagers and acne? And, oh– we are totally talking about Stella– not Alea or Hunter.  I can’t imagine what it must be like to have a gigantic zit thing the size of a pecan attached to what is generally a very beautiful face. I want to go ahead and post a bigger photo here so that everyone  can see the giant zit-thing this dog has grown on her face.  Stella has a mole on the left side of her face. If you look directly to the right of said mole, you will see a huge, very purple, extremely swollen zit thing.


Stella's Cyst

Ahh, teenagers.


Anyway, after a full day of this thing getting bigger and bigger we took her to the vet. It’s some sort of random cellulitis that we are treating with antibiotics and Benadryl– but nothing to be worried about. However, I was so terrified– I was just absolutely CERTAIN that she had some sort of random face cancer. Hehe.

In other news, our dog park put up this orange barrier thing, as they are trying to regrow some grass in a couple of areas. Here’s pretty much what Stella thought of that:

Take that, suckas!

She’s so terrible, ya’ll. We are the worst dog owners, ever. I look at this photo and just groan. It’s embarrassing– except she’s so freaking sweet and adorable that I can’t even stand it– so I just sit here and smile at it.

    Ahh…the acne! Don’t worry, Stella. It is temporary. When playing hard or bone chewing causes it to bleed, it must be wiped upon the nearest human, preferable a freshly dressed one. The saliva, blood, and dirt mixture is an excellent way to mark your people as your own.

    A word of caution, young lady, they may try to get medicated wipes to clear it up….AVOID THEM!!! They smell toxic and they are stingy! I have heard they can temporarily bleach a perfect black mask!! The indignity of it all is unfathomable.

    Anyway, have a good week Stella. Keep fighting the good fight. No real woman would let a little barrier deny her progress! Damn the orange fences!

    I can’t believe I never responded to this. While she DID have acne in this photo, I was actually talking about way back farther in her mask. It’s almost the size of a pecan, and underneath her fur…sort of where the fawn color indents on her mask. It ended up being some sort of cellulitis. But, it went away pretty quick. 🙂
