Mom and Dad took me to the vet this morning. As usual, I was very excited to go to the vet. I love the VET! I get to meet new furriends there and they give me TREATS! Treats and new furriends are well worth anything else that takes place there.
As soon as mom got my leash out I became very excited…see video clip #2 “Braun gets excited to go to Vet”. As you can see, I am super excited.
We get to the vet and I immediately met a new furriend…see video clip#1 “Braun goes to the Vet”. I did my best to make furriends with that cute little pup but I am not sure he wanted the same from me. Then mommy stepped in and made me quit barking. I am not sure if is comes clear on the video but the parents of the other dog started hitting it, with their bare hands to make him stop barking. Saddest thing ever! Mom said she cringed when she heard it but couldn’t say anything. Poor puppy!
We were first in to see the doc and he was happy to see me because I am super fun to be around. He asked mommy to show him my lump, which she did, and then he got down there to start rubbing my lump too…I felt a little weird about that and mommy could tell so she stopped him and told him that I was a “fear biter”…WHAT? I mean, I bit dad a couple of times when I first came to live with them but they were ok with it. As a matter of a fact mom told daddy I was scared. Oh, that is what she meant by “fear biter”. Mom held my head while doc checked my spot and then it was time for his diagnosis/opinion.
Doc told mom it didn’t feel like a fatty tumor, wasn’t a limp node and it was the size of walnut. He told mommy that we should keep an eye on it for a couple of weeks to see if it gets any bigger. Mom wasn’t comfy with that. She asked the Doc “what if it is something bad and waiting makes it worse”. Doc told mommy that the area the lump was wasn’t an area with anything “vital” so whether or not it was something to worry about it would be easily removed and had nothing vital to spread to. Doc also said that given the area and the size an x-ray would not help as it would not show up. Mom wasn’t comfortable with that either but, he is the vet and he has been taking care of us for a long time so she trusted what he said.
So, for now, we will simply keep a close eye on it and go back in to the vet for another check in two weeks.
Mom is still worried.

Hmmm. I guess we should trust the doc. He
loves you, just like we do, so won't let anything
bad happen! So, ours paws will stay crossed,
but we are optimistic!!!
Hmmm....mom's not so good at waiting. But, Sammy's right, we should trust the doctor. We will keep our paws crossed for no changes and for this lump to go away. Hugs to you and your mom!
Hummmm...If your mom trust your vet I suppose it's ok to wait. He's the dogtor and it's true that sometimes our moms can worry for...anything !
I just love going to the vet too, soo much smells to sniff ! It's the paradise of sniffing ! BOL
Be well ! XOXOXO

It never hurts to get a second opinion.
Happy to hear that the vet made an assessment and said it was nothing to worry about. Paws crossed over here too. Pooch Smooches for ya!
It sounds like good news for now if the doctor is'nt concerned.My mom would still be worried too anyway but it still sounds optimistic! paws crossed here for you too.
Your peeps asked all the right questions and we will be crossing our paws and waiting right along with you! :o) *huugs* Luv ya, Braun!
We're thinking of you and sending lots of love.
Crossing paws and fingers that your lump is nothing and that it will go away on it's own. Sending a ton of POTP your way.
We'll keep our paws crossed too!!
