Not a Tumor

Woman here ...

Mr. Shnookle (that's one of Norman's names) had to go to the Vet today to have a suspicious lump checked out. Our friend Lyn, who is a Vet, picked him up this morning and took him away. It's always sad for me to be without him in the house all day. I keep looking for him and talking to him and expecting to trip over him. It's weird to pee alone. Yes, I meant to type "pee" there. Norman doesn't let me use the bathroom by myself.

Lyn called this morning and said the lump does not appear to have mast cells in it, but with his history of mast cell tumors, she is going to send it to the pathologist. It's most likely just a fatty little growth, but we want to be sure. So, keep your paws crossed, and if you've got fingers, cross those too!

In other news, Ian has been nominated for a Threadless Bestee award again this year! Go to this link to vote. His design is "I Wish I Were." There's $20k at stake here, so your vote would be much appreciated!

    Definitely voting for Ian!! I know how you feel about being away from your pug(s) all day....I'm so glad he's back and it's nothing serious. I'm sure the path report will be fine as well. But, just in case, I've crossed all my fingers and toes!!

    If mom is alone she doesn't even bother shutting the bathroom door because she knows I will just push it open. Sometimes I even jump on her lap when she's doing her business. Aren't I funny?

    PS We are glad Norman doesn't have a tumor.
