My Warty Woes

Three legged Tripawd german shepherd contracts canine papilloma virus at age 1 year.

Mom and Dad have been calling me “Wart Hog” lately, whatever that is.

I guess it’s because I have this gross “papilloma” warty thing on my lip that started getting bigger a couple of weeks ago. Apparently I must have gotten it from some other dog.

Nice picture, huh?

I don’t even care about it. It doesn’t get in the way of my eating and that’s all I care about. But Mom and Dad keep pulling my scissor jaws apart and checking out my mouth like every five minutes! This thing is bugging them more than it is me.

Good thing it’s starting to fall off now and get smaller. I can’t wait till it’s gone.

  1. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! Gross! I’d be freakin too and lookin’ in Maggie’s mouth if she got one of those! I’ve heard of them but know nothing really about them…sounds like it’s contagious…guess I’ll go look at your link!

    Tracy, Maggie’s Mom

  2. Yup, that is one pretty gross picture alright. My mum sends a big thanks (gees!) to your parents for posting that one.

    I AM jealous of all your names . . . Let’s see, are you now “Wyatt Ray Wart Hog Road Dawg”? Am I forgetting any?

  3. oh right. Wild Boy Wyatt. That’s a good one. Better than being a dog with no name, I suppose.

    Reminds me of Tazzie. I wanted to change his name from the one, Taz, he came with from the shelter. But most the names I came up with were not particularly flattering . . . (he also was a badly behaving teenager, although in different ways than young Wyatt). Thank goodness Wyatt had a name before you entered the picture, who knows what he might have become.

    The best name for Tazzie would have been Ani (Anikin, capable of extreme good but also extreme evil). But everyone already thought The Pretty Boy was a “she” so calling him “Ani” would not have helped.

  4. Blahck! Yuck! Ewwww! Gag! Yeah there Wyatt, thanks for sharing. I think I threw-up a little in my mouth. Opie

  5. I’m glad it’s getting smaller. In the header picture it fills up your whole mouth LOL. Who knew old basketballs could become permanently attached? I have been warned. Thank You

  6. Good to hear you are back to normal! I was a bit like Opie-threw up in my mouth a little looking at that picture! I don’t think you look like a wart hog at all, your pawrents need to come up with a better name especially now!!!


  7. Oh Wyatt,
    I was so distraught I couldn’t post until it got better!

    I was so worried it would be like that movie, “How to get a HEAD in advertising”. It didn’t talk back at you, did it?
    (Yeah, I know Opie would have wanted one if it started talking! Actually, he would have wanted two, so he could be a TRIHEAD!)

    Just know, however disfigured you get, I’ll still love you!
    Big Smooch from me, Comet!

  8. Bwaaahahahahahah! I’m already too smart. If I had two more heads I would be an Einstein. Hmmmm Eienstein. Manhattan Project….Nope, thought I remembered something, but it’s gone. Saw a squirrel. Opie
