Somebody rolled in something skunky at the park on Sunday.

Also, I do not like the look of that bald patch on his neck. I wonder if it’s excess fur yanked out or rubbed raw by his Martingale collar, since he’s been going through another bout of shedding. But he’s usually collar-free at home, and he really doesn’t pull that much.

He’s got a titch of blackened skin on his belly again, which doesn’t seem to be itchy, and a minor irritation between his front toes, which he’s been licking. Could it be another fungal infection due to the damp weather we’ve had as of late?

The last thing we need is ringworm or something to start off the semester. So yeah, keeping a watch on this latest development…
