Yup, Clarence managed to injure the sheath that covers his penis. He's been humping his doggie bed a lot lately (not sure why) and we noticed some little pinpoint spots of blood on his bed and the carpet and the blanket his lies on on our bed. It went on for a few days, so we took him in to the vet yesterday. Sure enough he had a little bit of an infection on the opening where his penis is and it was bleeding a bit (it's not a UTI--just an injury). He was very calm during the whole exam (I would have felt so violated!) so that was good (although he let a huge burp right in the vet's face while he was checking his head and mouth--he's such a stinker, I though we've taught him better manners!). We got sent home with a week's dose of amoxicillin and a few chuckles from the vet and his staff. Leave it to Clarence! I think he's going to leave his bed alone for awhile.... ;D
Oh Clarence! Poor boy...hope he feels better soon.

Poor Clarence. You were a good boy....especially for such a "delicate" exam.
