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!)
