Okay experts... What's going on with my puppy?
I hope you can see the two spots in the pictures but, if not, our puppy Delilah is having some sort of skin problem and its really getting me worried (don't worry, the vet will be called first thing tomorrow).
Recently, while on a walk, we had a stray follow us home. They came in contact for a very short time -I wanted Delilah to know that she shouldn't be afraid of random dogs in our neighborhood (we live in a fairly nice neighborhood with no leash law and the doctor next door frequently lets his dog roam so it's important to us that she not be afraid of dogs in the area). Anyway, the stray doesn't appear to have skin problems but I didn't exactly look him over; it was a fast moment of interaction.
Initially, I'd thought she was rubbing her side raw in her crate somehow but after switching dog beds, I discovered yet another smaller spot on her back leg.

Can anyone tell me what this is or if its contagious (we have another puppy that's 6months old and we don't want her to give it to him). Does anyone have any ideas? As I said, I'll be taking her to the vet tomorrow but thought my mind might be put at ease if someone can tell me what it is, at least...

Thank you guys so very much!!! I never hesitate to ask a question on here and greatly appreciate the positive feedback I'm given :-)

It should be noted that those are (currently) the only sites... The first spot (on her abdomen) was discovered about a week ago; the other spot on her back leg was discovered last night...

It could be any number of things. Go to the vet and get an evaluation and a skin scraping. This is nothing a person can diagnose from a picture.
