I haz a tumor?

Sunday afternoon while I was lying in bed and talking on the phone, I was petting the beagle as she lounged beside me. It was then when I felt a lump just above the top of her front right leg. SHIT! That was my first thought. Please don't be cancer was the second. I'm thankful that I had an appointment booked this week for her annual booster shots. Bridgette is fine and the lump doesn't seem to bother her in the slightest. I wish I could say the same for me. Family and friends have been doing their best to allay any fears I might have, but it really hasn't helped. She's reached the age where this kind of thing is common, but (to me) she's still the puppy I brought home and raised. Yes it could be benign but I won't be at ease until I know for sure. See I lost my last dog to cancer and the way things went down were not pretty. I don't want to see my baby go through that and wish her to have a long happy medically uncomplicated life. Our appointment is at 4pm tomorrow afternoon and I can already tell it's going to be a long long day for me.


  1. Oh she's so cute. My dogs also had lumps and such. Its sort of like humans. We get age spots ,gray hair and bumps on our bodies. I know though this doesn't help. Bridget is your baby always will be even if she is really older than you. Your a good daddy. Daddies always worry's about their babies. I which you 2 luck.

  2. Best wishes for a vet visit full of relief. And Milk-Bonz.

  3. Keeping my fingers crossed for her and for you! Probably just a fatty lump - common as they get older. :)
