My dog has cancer

Two weeks ago we noticed a nasty-looking growth on Lexi’s underside. We took her into the vet and again the following day so he could operate to remove the tumour. The tumour was sent off for tests and the results came back today.

It’s cancer.

The good news is that it hasn’t extended into any of her organs and it appears that the surgery has removed everything. We are, however, going to have to keep a closer on her for any lumps or bumps.

I don’t really have anything else to say at this point, so here’s a serendipitous reminder from Sinfest of why dogs are so great to have around.
