    Well, I had a scare today. I came home from school today, and laid on the floor with my dog. *Keep in mind this dog sleeps with me almost every night* I was petting him, using him as a pillow, etc. when I noticed a lump under his arm. It was about the size of a silver dollar and not extremely superficial... Now, I knew it was probably just a fatty tumor, but when it's your "kid" what do ya do?!? I called the vet and they told me that if I could get him there in 30 minutes, they could work me in. It worked out perfectly because he needed his rabies booster anyhow- so I ran him out. Well... long story short, they aspirated the lump and looked at it under the microscope and sure enough, it was only a fatty tumor. He got his rabies shot, a new bottle of shampoo, and we went home with a smile [​IMG]
    How could you not worry about this face?!?
