Mast Cells Strike Again

Poor Sophie is barely getting the blog attention for this that Dixie did, but yes, she has a mast cell tumor too. The vet commended us on bringing her in for it. I guess I'm just anal ever since Dixie's butt bump turned out to be a mast cell tumor.

The little bump has been there forever, but it's acting like Dixie's... fluctuating in size and getting red/weird when you touch or poke it. The vet took a sample and actually was able to check it out right then. You can see it in the above (older) picture of her (older as evidenced by her harness, it's like carbon dating for pug pictures!) It's above her nose to the left (her right) directly next to her eye. It just appears to be a small bump or mole (like Dixie's) but turns out of course to be a tumor. My poor heart and wallet cannot take too much of this!! She has to get surgery next week- when I'm in Miami. ::SOB!::

Keep Sophie in your thoughts! (And me, Brian, and Dixie too!)

Poor Sophie... I will be praying for her. I had a hard time with Coco's health problems but I was able to take care of him and still survive financially speaking. Don't worry, everything is going to be fine.

I am too distraught to do or say anything at this point.

I'm sorry to hear about the tumor. I hope everything goes well. We'll be praying for you little puggies!

I just had three mast cell tumors removed a couple months ago. :(

I get extra hugs and cuddles. So it's not all bad.
