Kickass and old skin

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says the keeper will take his old hide in today for a routine inspection by the VA’s dermatology detectives who are very thorough and go about their business like eager horticulturists in a weedy garden.  It is yet one more bonus of aging that the older you get the more strange things sprout on and under your skin, and some of them have lethal potential, hence periodic monitoring.  It is, in a sense, like what happens when Kickass goes in for a flea exam.  The process is more or less the same, and should the VA find what the veterinarians look for on Kickass, the keeper might end up wearing a flea collar.
