Lump

Fergus is almost 10. Heidi is 15. These two “cousins” love each other very much.

Fergus never lays on his back and lets just anyone molest him … except for Heidi! 🙂

Thank goodness for the molesting because Heidi found a lump on Fergus’s chest!! 🙁

I immediately took him to the vet and it turned out to be a Lipoma (a benign tumor composed of fatty tissue). My vet says it’s nothing to worry about but to keep an eye on it.

We are now calling it his “old man lump” and keeping a watchful eye. It’s hard to think of Fergus as a senior dog … I still think of him as a puppy.

Time sure flies when you are having fun with the people/fur-friends that you love. : )

    Bumblebee has one too, but I know they are really common. Not to worry!

    Awe that is just too cute. I have a senior at home. He is 17, a cat named Doug, such a little senior and well he stopped purring for years. Now the littest attention and he is just roaring!

    Love animals, love life!

  4. Aw, poor Fergus! My dog had one of these on his tail last year and the vet removed it to send to a lab. Turned out to be benign. But it was a scare. I hated waiting for the lab results to come back.

  5. It’s such a shame that they can’t talk and tell us they have these things! Our dog is 14 and we just discovered lumps in his mouth. He is too old to operate on and have them removed so we just have to hope they are not cancerous :(. Good on Heidi for keeping up with the Puppy love. Could be the start of a career as a vet!x
