Weird Bruise, Lyme Rash Or Something Else?

We just discovered a weird little red circle on Emily's side. It wasn't there a few hours ago, and she hasn't bumped her side or lay down on anything weird since we got home this afternoon. It's hard to tell from the pictures, but it's a bright blood red ring with a white center. No breaks in the skin - it's smooth and dry.

Any ideas what it is? I'm guessing either a very strange bruise or some sort of rash. It doesn't look like the pictures I've seen of lyme rashes, but I can't imagine what she would have hit in the house to end up with a ring shaped bruise. We'll call the vet first thing tomorrow if it gets any larger or looks any more rash-like.

 

Suggestions appreciated :) Trying to figure out if I should be freaked out or not.

Bug bite. The first time I saw this my dog had eight of them. I almost had a heart attack! It was black flies then, but I have seen it from other bugs also.

Wink has one similar to Emily's. It comes and goes. The vet is not concerned, this has been an ongoing thing for about 3 years.
