Something is sticking out of my dog's skin!

One day my toy poodle suddenly had a long, skin-coloured thing jutting out of his skin on his back. It was near his neck, in the same direction as the hair, and a little hard to the touch. At first it seemed to be as if something had poked him and got broken off. We tried to pull it out but it really looked to be a part of his skin... so we left it alone. It's now changed colours and become hard and crusty. We pulled it off this time and it had some blood Now weeks later, there's another one! But this time it has a different appearance than the first. This one is more like a bulb sac... we're hoping it's not a bug or a parasite... Anyone know what these things could be? I'm pretty sure they are two different things, since they each had a different appearance...
