I've got a lickin' problem..........

Yup I went and dones it again....

Off to the Vet....

Momma was worried cause my furs where coming out in her hand in a spot, and I don't have much to start wifs.  I was fine on Tuesday, Wednesday night Momma noticed it, and here it is.

I may have also had a problem in the lower private regions........

My Diagnosis, Yes my vet put this on my PERMANENT RECORD:

"Chronic history of licking in the penile area - appears to have caused damage to left front leg from licking"
Diagnosis: Skin Irritation - Self Induced.

I am so embarrassed... I can't even show my face.  I just can't help it.  I lick and lick and lick some more.  Momma and Dad make me stopped when they are home,  but you know someones gotta go to work to pay my vet bills for my self induced problem.  But, CHRONIC history of licking - that's just so unfair.

 I gots ointment and I should be fine soon.  The vet said my hairs will grow back and there seems to be no sign of anything other than my licking of the area to cause the problems.  Sigh.

  3. Sigh from us too, Tucker. Thunder is a licker too, but so far no harm done. He goes at his front paws a lot in the spring. We hope your ointment helps and please don't be embarrassed - we really want to see your handsome face.

  5. Oh poor Tucker! I like to lick my tummy and 'private regions' too - and my bum! And my humans always tell me to stop too if I overdo it - sometimes I lick until all the skin around the base of my tail is red! I now try and do it secretly - like I curl up into a really small ball, with my nose tucked under my tail, and lick away, hoping nobody will notice...but somehow Hsin-Yi always does! Then I hear her calling from another room: "Honey! No more secret licking!" - she says I make a slurping noise that she can rude!! But I guess I'm lucky in that she works from home and so can supervise me a lot of the time!

  6. I mean rilly, how rude. They could has put it a little more nicer like "can't hold his licker" or something. But just watch it, buddy, you not be wanting that cone of shame on TOP of the hoomiliashuns you alreddy endured.

  7. oh Tucker. feel better soon.

  8. OMD are so funny with this post...had my mom and dad cracking up! Now stop licking otherwise you may get a cone head....Ha Roo!! Feel better soon.

  11. Well that VET Dawgtor just needs to keep his opinions to himself. I mean you don't tell all of his private bidness do you?

    My mom said that there is some nasty tasting stuffs that can be put on your furs and you will stop... butt then what does she know.
    You just hold your head up and be totally PROUD.. you have very much CLEAN spots.

  12. poor TUcker :(


  13. Chronic Lickers of Blogville UNITE! You and Stumpy can attend a 12 Step program together!

  14. Dont worry Tucker. Darwin is a private licker too. We hate it.
    Hope you feel better soon!

  15. Hi Tucker! We have an entry for your dogya contest at our blog. I was wondering how many of us at the same house can eneter?


  16. Oh Tucker,
    this is so unfair!
    Why do they tell you off for a very normal thing ... don't our humans wash themselves?
    They do ... so why do they bother us? It is our way of taking a bath...
    Well, my humans complain I can get very noisy... There are times when they throw things at me if I do it when they are sleeping...
    My licking or my ears can wake them up because of my gentleness eh eh eh!
    Sorry to hear that all the licking caused you the irritation... but may be you were licking more than usual because a mosquito or another evil insect harmed you?
    Let's hope the cream you got from the vet helps you fix the irritation quickly ;)
    ciao Lucille

  17. Paris does the exact same thing! The vet can't find a medical reason (yet) - He is thinking she does it cause she's bored (WTM?)
    My cousin Sheila (an Aussie) constantly licks her girly parts....

  18. Poor Tucker - please don't be embarrassed! You can't help licking - you're just too sweet!

  19. Licking yourself bald! O dear, I'm sure it will get better soon though! :)

    We aren't big lickers... we do like to lick inside each others mouths though :p

    Our entries for your competition will be sent in the next 24hrs! We have had something called DIAL UP internet - making everything SLOW, but its back to the broadband now! :)

    Licks and lots of slobber,

  20. Oh Tucker that licking is quite the issue it seem especially in your nether regions, hope you feel better soon!

  21. OH Tucker, you have the same problem as my spotted sister, faith! She is OBSESSED with licking herself too. Sometimes she gets so engrossed in the licking, she starts chewing on her feet! Both her front paws are pink & look bald. What is it with you black & white spotted dogs, mutilating yourselves? I don't get it. Sigh. Anyway, I hope you get better soon & stop licking!
