I'm Gonna Get Can't Spell in Trouble

Can't Spell, my dear friend, has failed to post on her own blog for an even longer period of time than it has been for me.  Her excuse is that she does not see enough interesting stuff on her USDA job to warrant posting.  She has recently started working one day a month back in clinical practice and said she would post something soon since that was of more interest.  Being in a rather smart ass frame of mind, my response was, "Should it concern you, don't worry, I'm not holding my breath..."  In order to prove her somewhat wrong, I'm posting some pictures for your enjoyment and edification along with questions which she will have to answer.  (Bwahahahahaha!!!!!)

  This is a pig.  Now, you tell me 1) what organ, 2) what disease process, 3) etiology, 4) does this require the carcass to be condemned, and 5) if so, why, if not, why?????  Have fun!!

Just for SB

"Oh suns and skies and clouds of June, and flowers of June together; You cannot rival for one hour, October's bright blue weather!"

OK, OK, so it's probably unfair that I'm quoting this again but October really is my absolute favorite month of the year and today is one of the more glorious October days.  Bright blue skies, sun, slightly windy, slightly cool but warm all at the same time.  I love it!

So why am I inside writing a stupid blog post when the weather is so wonderful out??  Mostly because I'm killing a few minutes while I wait on me mum to get ready; we're about to go on a little picnic.

I won't bore you with details yet, I'm just gonna post some pictures with questions and those few people out there who may still check in now and again to see if we have come out of hibernation to post can enjoy and maybe even comment...

What is wrong with these pictures?

Can you name the condition and tell me what breed of dog this occurs in relatively commonly?  (The dog pictured is this breed but you don't get a full picture so...guess well!)

As a note of interest, this is the first one I've actually seen in practice rather than just reading about it.  I'll fill in the details and story later.
