    I agree..take her to the vet immediately. I would've called the police the first thing. Can you post pictures of her sores?

    @anatess.

    The lesions on her chest and arm pits could have been caused during her escape ?
    That is, if she did escape and not taken..

    Do you think maybe she was fed french fries and that is the hint they are leaving you ?

    This whole thing is so odd. Im just trying to make sense from all the clues....

    Wow! That's frightening! I would absolutely call the non-emergency police number and report it. I'd also be locking the doors to the patio so no one can get in there. How scary.

    I agree with all, please let the police know if you haven't already. I'll be thinking of you and your family that all will be safe and in good-health.

    Hope Bullie is okay... This has to be one of the oddest things I have ever heard?! Do you have any troublemaker kids in the neighborhood? Just so bizarre.

    Went to the vet this morning. Skin scrape didn't turn out anything. Fecal didn't turn out anything. Physical was ok. So the vet says it could be allergy flare-up from weed/grass/pollen combined with undue stress causing both the skin irritation and the diarrhea. I got 2 meds - hydroxyzine (antihisthamine) and metronidazole to help with the diarrhea. She sent me home with 6 cans of prescription Royal Canine gastrointestinal formula and 6 probiotic powder sachets to go with it.

    I feel better but not too much. I don't know, I guess I won't feel normal until Bullie is back to normal.

    Yes, we notified the cop that lives in our neighborhood last Friday while Bullie was missing before we found the potato. I had the impression, though, that he didn't believe me when I told him that yes, I definitely made sure Bullie was in the patio before I left... I took them out to go to the bathroom before I left them in the patio and he asked if I was sure that she came in before I left... uh, duh, I don't leave them by themselves to go bathroom...

    My husband has a theory... we put up a yard sign supporting a political candidate last Thursday. He thinks this might be a prank that has to do with the yard sign. Although, we can't figure out what the connection is between the potato and the candidate.

    And then I remembered that when the kids went back to school from Christmas vacation, there were signs around the school (a mile from our subdivision) about 3 missing bulldogs. It didn't mention if they were English bulldogs or if they were "stolen" and not just ran off. I remember it was there for over a week. The signs are gone now, so they might have been recovered. It's just something that came to my mind...

    Anyway, besides scratching herself all day long and getting all those lesions in the process and having to poop more, Bullie seems fine mood-wise. It's Gizmo that has gone psychotic. I expect she'll be sleeping most of the day due to the meds.

    I am a little worried about using the Royal Canine prescription food. I'm still debating whether to go ahead and use it per vet's orders or just sprinkling the probiotic onto her regular food. What do you guys think?

    I got Bullied and loving it!

    Take a moment for yourself....to say you've got some stress is an understatement... Do what you need to do to take care of yourself (so you can take care of everyone else). As far as the food from the vet, I probably wouldn't switch food on top of everything else that's been happening, but you know your dogs so do what you think is best for them.... Hang in there

    I would go ahead and give her the food the vet said, once her tummy settles down slowly introduce her back to her food. Hope she get better soon, and you find out who's doing the pranks
