I had to go to the V.E.T this weekend for my annual check-up. I love going to the VET! Mom takes a bag of cookies with her and I get treats for laying down nicely at her feet or ignoring other dogs that come in the waiting room. I charmed the pants off of two ladies by staring at them & smiling. They told Mom about 10 times "You're dog just never stops smiling".
I do have a pretty great smile...see?
This trip to the V.E.T. was great because they didn't steal any of my blood, nor did they stick me with any needles. I also found out that I've lost 2 lbs!! And Mom thought I was gaining weight. They did put that thing up my butt and I just can't understand why they haven't come up a better way to judge how HOT I am. They could've just asked Dot.
I have a little baby lump on my leg that Mom wanted to have the Vet check. It's so little, Dr. F couldn't even find it. Mom does this massage thingy on me every week to check for lumps & bumps and I love it because I just lay there while she rubs me. That's when she found it. This is where it is on my leg.
So she showed Dr. F where it was and they don't think it's a cyst. Because it's so small, they want to wait to biopsy it if it gets any bigger. So that just means Mom will be massaging me every single day & that's just fine with me!!
It made me feel like roachin'!
(Back to the Vet visit...I'm pretty freaked out about this whole diagnosis. My Vet thinks it could be lymphoma because the lump floats & is not attached to the skin. I almost passed out when she said the C word. Right now it's the size of a pea...and trust me, if that thing gets any bigger Sherman will be at the Vet in a nanosecond to have it biopsed. She doesn't feel the lump is big enough to put him through the whole process right now though. I love this Vet & trust her. She assured me it could stay the same size for a long time. Let's just hope that's the case.)
