Me and My Lump...

Hi all, I hope you are all well. Sorry haven't been in touch, but May was very busy wasn't it? Lots of lazing in the garden and snoozing in the shade.

Anyway, I thought I'd show you my lump. It has been growing steadily, but fairly slowly over the last 6-8 months.  You can see it just above my right shoulder, almost in my armpit.  Here I am lying down to show you where it is.

After a weeks holiday at my Pet Hotel, mum and dad have realised that the lump is now growing more quickly and I believe plans are afoot to have Mr Lump removed next week!!

Now, please don't worry about me - the vet has said that, subject to a blood test to make sure I am healthy and fit enough for the operation, there should be no problems at all in removing it and making a full recovery - with another proud battle scar!!

I just thought I'd let you see a picture of how big the lump is now, to maximise on the sympathy I hope to get when I show you my stitches next weekend.
I just hope mum doesn't stick me in another of those 80's t-shirts! So embarrassing! [See post 19th June 2010.]

Hi Roddy and family
You Labbies are prone to being a bit lumpy and bumpy, luckily it is usually a fatty lump in the wrong place (must be all those yummy treats).
I know the vet will say "keep him calm" but if you are anything like my old Lab, you will still have to give the full wriggly, waggy greeting when your people come to collect you.
The worst part is having to go without breakfast! A Labrador's worst nightmare.
Love and hugs

I had a lab and she had a lump for 10 years, I never removed it. I guess I didn't want her to go under the knife. she lasted for 17 years, and you lab looks alot like her, her name was cinder
