I offered Maddie a ride in the car (okay, we were just moving the car to the other side of the street before going on our walk), and as she clambered in, I noticed a nasty red raw spot on her right hip. I swear it wasn't there earlier today! It certainly wasn't there last night at 10:30, because I remember she was itchy so I grabbed the brush and gave her a few good strokes. She's never gotten one *there* before--always on her inner thigh, or her neck, not there!
*sigh* We're off to the vet tomorrow, I guess--the season starts earlier every year. It may be time for (gasp) special diet.
