Lucy, (Or Loodely Doodles as we call her) has a few health issues.

I took Lucy to the Vet, and we discovered that besides the large growth of fatty tissue on her chest under her collar, and the unsightly red splotch below her left eye, she has two other other tumors, one in the "armpit" under her front left leg, and another back near a nipple.

Preliminary testing shows them to be benign, but we are going to play it safe and schedule precautionary procedures and have them removed and biopsied. Yes, it is an expense to consider for an 11 year old dog, but she's a better friend than many people I have had the pleasure or displeasure to know, so I feel she's worth it.
