Curiosity Killed The Cat...

Do you see the concern in my eyeballs…perhaps the worry? Or maybe you see a little curiosity??? Oh…that’s right, you don’t! Because it’s not there! What your are looking at my friends, are the eyeballs of a very annoyed Mr. T-Bone Beasley.

Gasp! I know right! Me…annoyed, how could that ever be? Well, it’s ‘cause of the human! Her and her paranoia is really starting to irk me.

This past week the human has noticed some weird random scabs that were appearing in this area of my fuzzy body.

Note that these little bumps don’t bother me at all. I didn’t even know they were there! It’s all the human!

They weren’t so much on my glorious butt or on my fro-ish thighs…but more so on my back, and just a little bit on my neck.

All I can say is that I’m so happy they never appeared here.

That would have been tragic and something to sound the alarms for. There are NEVER to be any blemishes on my juicy schnozz. That’s my poker…and sniffer…I need that bad boy!

Last week it wasn’t such a big deal, and since my human didn’t make it a big deal I made sure to show her my appreciation by a few more love nips and a good snuggle, and of course a little more nose time…

Then, yesterday she said, “Hmmmm I’m curious as to what those bumps are, Bease…” Quickly I got up and moved away, hoping that she would forget about it…but that twerp followed me! Can you believe her nerve? Don’t the humans know that curiosity is what killed the cat!

Anyway, despite my efforts to bring amnesia upon the human…I was taken into the vet this afternoon! OOOOOO I forgot to tell you all! Today I’m 8 months old! For reals though! A whole 8 months…I’m like big dog status now! Not only am I 8 months old, but I am also 74.2 pounds. I’m not even a fatty…just large…like a pony…

Okay, so the vet and all of the nurses came by and loved on me and commented on what a good boy I was. After the Vet gave me a thorough and relaxing rub down she said that it looks like I had a small skin infection which is common when it’s so hot and humid out. She thinks that I got a scratch and with the weather being so yucky, it got infected and spread to my some of my other wonderfully Beasinated pores…thus I got little scabs.

Vet said that it can get worse, so it was good that the human decided to bring me in. For that, the vet got one of my very indignant looks…I’m sure you all know that face, I bet you give it to your humans too.

Anyway, I now have to take a bath once a week for a few weeks with some special shampoo, and I also got a tube of medicine…whatever.

The good news is that I get to take these…

With this…

So all’s not bad I suppose!

I just gotta let the human know what’s up is all…

This is Mr. T-Bone signing out and reminding you all that curiosity could potentially kill the human…forget the cat…

Mr. T-Bone Beasley

Kirby said...

Hey Mr. T-Bone Beasley,

What is it about our humans that make them drag us to the vet everytime they think something is wrong with us. I'm dragged there all the time, good thing I like my vet. He he!! At least you get to take your pills with that super yummy Kong paste! Mmmmm good!! You are getting to be a big dale! I wish I was a taller dale. I'm a stocky one and Mom is forever going on about my weight. Humans!

Your pal,

Dewey Dewster said...

Hey T-bone...

Dewey Dewster here....

Super Boy & Baby-Licious said...

Well, you are consider lucky. I am having these spots too on my body and the hoomans put an e-collar on me to prevent me fom licking n scratching...sigh.


Noah the Airedale said...

Oh a skin infection...poor you Bease. Willow gets lots of hotspots but I guess it's a bit different.
Hope your fixed up and better real soon matie.


Lorenza said...

Hi, Mr. T!
I hope those bumps go away soon!
Take your baths, meds with yummy kong paste and you will be like new soon!
Kisses and hugs

Kess And Her Mama said...

Humans are obsessed with every little thing on our bodies. And before we know it, it's off to the vet! Sigh...

PS. I haven't changed thousands or millions of lives - just the lives of those around me :-)

Faya said...

Oh Beasley ! I am sorry I had to go to the vet. I had a skin infection also some times ago but it was on my nose...yes on my beautiful nose. Hopefuly your nose still the greatest nose ! Such a beautiful nose !
I take my medicine with some "parfait"....very tasty !
Hope you will be better soon....
Kisses, Faya

Chef said...

Oh yucko, Bease. Medicines. Well at least you get to take it with Kong paste. My Mama just shoves her fist down my throat. She knows I'll separate goodies from the pills so I don't get any treats with my medicines. She says my mouth is as big as a cow's so she can fit her whole hand in. She does it because I'm a big spitter-outer of pills... What a nightmare. So you heard about my paw cut, huh? I'm a mess, Bease. I just got over a rash - sort of like yours - and now I have a ripped up pad under my paw. Geez I hope my paw doesn't fall off. I need Beasehugs. Send me some,ok?

Take you stinkybaths and your medicines like a good boy and you'll be all better.

Waiting for hugs.


Joe Stains said...

Oh bease that STINKS dude. BUT at least its not storming! I might want some of those pills if it came with stuffing, YUM

Cassidy said...

Sorry to hear you've got the itchies. A bath a week sounds like torture. Better make sure you get plenty of that Peanut Butter stuff to compensate!

Penny, Poppy & Patches said...

Hi Mr. T-Bone Beasley! You are getting to be a very large Aire-boy! You are even bigger than Penny and she's 9 years old. Happy 8 month barkday! I, Poppy, had those bumps on my neck for a while, but they finally went away. We hope yours go away soon too!

Toffee said...

I hope your infection clears soon!!
Thank goodness your human took you to the doctor before it spread to your cute schnoz!

Fenway said...

You're still beautiful and your fur hides the bumpies.

Stay inside in the AC and get better.

Yes, the beach is GREAT, but the aftermath isn't. I have to finish up with a BATH!!!!!

Deetz said...

oooooo, you got the scabbies. HEEHEE ...Okay not funny. Atleast you get too take really colorful pills. I am not so sure about the baths though. can't your mum just fill up your pool and put the shampoo in it and you just jump in the pool whenever you feel like it? Ummm, might be something to have a chat with her about. 8 months OLD. Woo Hoo
I miss you beasley.
Oh, its only 56 degrees this morning....tell your mum to ship you up here and that will cure the scabs

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

We were talking today at the dogpark -- all the dogs are getting skin issues with the heat and humidity. So annoying and so U-g-l-y too. Hope the pills and stuff get rid of the problem.

Deetz said...

You crack me up, Beasley....lol....6 of me and all our friends...I bet you are exhausted when you get home from daycare. Last night, mum threw a gatorade bottle on one side of the house..I grabbed it and ran the opposite way of my mum...ran completely around the whole house and to the other side where she was..I was pretending, we were all in a race to the finish line....You are great to race with too.

Abby said...

Hi, Beasley...

I gotta say...There are far too many of us going to the Vet lately...We gotta stop this...

Anyway...I'm glad you got your medicine for your bumps & you are sooo lucky to get them stuck in your Kong with the paste...

Sometimes the Vet isn't ALL bad...

Abby xxxooo

the 4 Bs said...

hey Mr. Beasley, those darn humans get so nosey sometimes. we think they should learn to mind their own business and not be sniffin' or pokin' around us dogs so much. mom found some little scabbies like that on Brody - on the side of his face and his side. luckily, they're almost gone now. today she's dragging poor Baxter off to the vet for some bleeding sore thing on his chest. oh sheesh - puhleease just stop with this motherly care stuff. (is what we want to say) hee hee


happy said...

Sorry to hear about those bumps. Glad you are enjoying your Kong stuffing eventhough it goes with the medicine. Get better soon!

Pee ess : Your cute nose is as cute as ever!

Tenkiller Airedales said...

T-Bone dear.... Mommy Greta here. I too have the same problem right now. I'm having to take the horrible bathes, but we passed on the medicine because I'm going to have babies!!!! I'm feeling better, and I hope you do to soon!!!

Hugs and slurps,
Mommy Greta

Georgeous said...

Oh Mr Beasley, I'm SoooOo gald your Noona is blemish free (Shnozz as you call it). Anything with Kong paste must be good eh?
Love George

Deetz said...

Have you seen the pictures of dyos over at Faya's? I want a dyos? Wonder if she will mail me one. I think Faya should send dyos to us and we can alternate puppy sitting, that lil puppy is adorable....ummm, like us of course.

Gaia the Airedale said...

T look at you! A whole 8 months old wowsers! Hehe Im almost 7 months old, soon momma will switch me over to adult food like you did! Cept youre a big boy! Momma says Im little for a dale, I only weigh 39lbs but she still picks me up and holds me heheh. Silly human! And Im glad to hear your medical situation wasnt anything serious, you were brave to endure your humans curiosity, they only do it cause they love us I guess...oh well.Hehe take care Bease!

puppy breath,


Woof Mr. T-Bone

Your Mom sounds as paranoid as our Mom. Maybe they should hang out together and stop fussing over us dogs. We'll let them know when something is really wrong. Good luck with bathing, it's only fun when you're in the pool. Oh, be careful with the Monsoons. We've been getting hammered down here in Tucson.

Woof, woof,
Desert Pups

Willow the Black Dale said...

Bease....you got cooties? It had to have been Satan's fault. When you can't explain stuff always blame the cat of the house!! It works for me!!! teehee

Now about this school thing. Mom is serious about it. She says we both need some training. I thought I was doing fine. Nope no problems here, just not sure what she is talking about. Or really what all the fuss is about. Moms.....whatever.

Peace out Bease,

Deefor said...

That's too bad about your scabby bumbies. I only take pills if they have lots of yummy stuff around them. Like hamburger. I never tried that kong stuff. I'm glad the vet gave you stuff before they spread to your nose.


Maggie and Mitch said...

Bummer about all the baths, Mr. T-Bone Beasley! Mom usually dips our pills in the peanut butter jar but this Kong stuff looks pretty tasty too!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Stanley said...

Hey, BeaseMan!

You, my friend, are almost as large as I. I'm weighing in at a leggy and svelte 80 lbs these days, but I bet you surpass me. (That wil just mean there is more of you to love.)

Cut your hooman a break, man. She loves you and is a first-time mama to a Beaseley. She's bound to spaz every once in awhile.

Hope the scabbies heal up quick. Enjoy the baths and the zoomies after!

Goober love,

Pee Ess
You already know this, but we absolutely love your juicy schnoz!

Molly and Taffy said...

Mr T

Hope these sore spots clear up very quickly! Do you realise it is not the pills that cure you it is the stuff in the Kong!!! haha! Tell your hooman this and perhaps she will give you kongs stuffed full with peanut butter filling all the time just to keep those bumps away!
Well it is worth a try!

Molly and Taffy


Hiya Beasley,

The Mommy does the same thing to be. If I even sneeze it's off to the vet...I agree with Kirby...What is it about our humans?

We did my kitty cat post last night & posted a pocture of your kitty cat. Hope you approve. Come on over & guess...you already know one cat.

Loave ya lots Mona

William Tell said...

When I say curiosity killed the cat to my Mom, she replies, "And satisfaction brought it back." So off to the vet we go again...sigh. Glad your scabbies will be treated and go away, though. Happy Eight Month Birthday!

Happy Tails,
William Tell

Chef said...

Hey bigBease. How are your bumpies? Hope they're clearing up. Come by my blog and pick up an award, ok?


Agatha and Archie said...

OK we are back and running and catching up on everyone....Since you get that Kong foodie thing the story ended up with a happy ending...Love and kisses A+A

JB's Big World said...

I am glad you got the bumps and hope they go away soon. You weigh 74 pounds already? You are big! You are over 10 times my size!
I am glad curiosity did not kill the cat.....

Mango said...

Mr. T,
At least they didn't shave your butt to aire out the skin bumps. You'll feel better once the summer is over.


Anonymous said...

Mr. T-Bone Beasley! I hope your skin is all better now! I know you gave that vet your best indignant look.
