Hello everyone! Nelson here to tell you all about my day!
I know you are all expecting Sonic, but surprisingly The Momma and my little girl Emma really wanted Subway! So I got to eat some chips and some slices of turkey and bacon. mmmmmmmm
What was even more fun is that after The Momma got the food we all went to eat at a little table outside! I am not sure, but I think this may be better than Sonic. Everyone who passed by told me how beautiful I was and some even pet me! That never happens at Sonic.
I still would have liked my own burger though....
Anyhow, we were just around the corner from the 3 Dog Bakery!!! So we walked over there
(I got even MORE comments that way!)
I tried on a hat, aren't I cute?
well you already knew I was cute....
Here is my favorite spot in the whole place, the wall of treats.
Don't you think they need to use me as a model?
Here is another pose for consideration.....
I got the cheesy smile going
The momma picked out some treats to take home, this flavor was a big hit last time.
The Momma and Daddyman even tried these, they smell so good.
Then I rode all the way home sitting with my little girl, my paw in her lap <3 I love her so much
I know most of you are wondering.... where was Bully?
Well, he stayed home, because I had to go to the vet. The Momma is worried,
she says something is wrong with my leg.
Very few of you may remember that Bully had a tumor last November. It was on his left rear knee
(this is Bully's leg Nov 2009)
It was removed and it turned out to be a Neurofibrosarcoma or a Malignant Nerve Sheath Tumor
(this is Bully's leg after surgery Dec 2009)
It has a high rate of recurrence but so far, almost 11 months later it has not come back.
Well here is my leg :(
We thought it might have been the same thing as Bully's, that would make sense because we are
full siblings and perhaps it is genetic.
They have done a fine needle aspiration of the lump and have determined that is may be inflammation or bacterial. Which is way different than what Bully's FNA results were back in Nov. We are not sure if this is good or bad. Today the vet lady wanted to take another look at it to see if I need to go to a specialist to get it removed. For now she will send all my info to a dermatologist to see what they have to say about it...She says they may need to take a biopsy.
Here is a picture of both my legs, you can compare the skinniness of the normal leg to the one with the lump.
It doesn't hurt me, and looking back through the many pictures The Momma has of me she discovered that I have had it for a while. The Momma's main concern is that I have lost a lot of hair recently and that no matter how much she feeds me I never seem to gain any weight. I always look a little too thin. Bully did the same thing till his tumor was removed, then he packed on the pounds really easy. So maybe if they make this lump go away I can do the same thing.
So please keep me in your thoughts, Bully and The Momma too, we all need eachother. We will post updates as we know them..... we are labeling this post as "Nelson's Lump" so you can click on that label at the bottom of the post to find all the updates later.....
