Once upon a whiskers

Puppy Pimples and Whiskers

Here’s a funny story. When I was about four months old, mama brought me home. I am her first pup and she had no idea what to expect in mamahood. Little did she know that I would be prone to so many problems! I was sent straight to the vet when I had my first diarrhea, first vomit, and first pimple!

Talking about pimples, mama didn’t know that it was common for puppies to get them. Not knowing that the tiny bumps/scabs on my forehead and body were mere pimples, she diligently applied colloidal silver on me every day, hoping that my “skin condition” would improve. She even thought that the bumps on my cheeks and chin were skin problems! It was only when a thick hair grew out of them that she made the connection – they are my new whiskers! Silly mama. If only I could tell her to calm down and stop worrying! I was simply growing up 🙂

    Hi Latte
    So nice to see a Singapore westie blog!!!
    I remember TOto growing warts and it scared the hell out of me! But then we realised it was normal for them to have puppy warts due to their immunity plus TOto goes to daycamp very often and this the exposure.

    Nice to see you ONLINE.
