Hey all,

We took our dog Murphy to the vet today and the lump on his side is a fat deposit and not a cancerous tumor. I was worried he is such a good dog!

I am so glad that you posted this! I was wondering what the Vet said and have been keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Shares a hug, a smile and a deep sigh of relief.

Hello Cher

I am glad your dog is okay.

My husband and I are cat people (we like dogs just not as much as cats) and we currently have a cat named Dolly. She moved in 5 months ago and we adore her. Our pets are special to us and play an important role.

Dolly has actually improved my motivation because I have to get up on a morning now when she meows at me and jumps on me. This in turn benefits my husband who now get breakfast on a morning before work like he used to before I was ill. I then go back to bed and she eventually snuggles up with me and then gets me up again in the afternoon when she wants to go out. She follows me around when she's in and all she wants to do is be with you.

When she meows persistently at me I have to lie down on the bed so she can sit on my chest, purr, drool and get lots of lovin'! She loves to eat (my husband says she's fat I say she voluptuous), sleep, have a mad half hour, snuggle...eat, sleep...hey I've become my cat!!!! They say owners and their pets are similar and here is the proof.

Long live the beloved pet. :lol:

Hi Cher,

I am glad that Murph's okay after all!

It's worrisome when our critters have something going on. After all they are a family member!

Our toy poodle also has the fat deposit on her side. Like you, though...I too, thought it might be cancer and was beside myself until I found out otherwise!

Our pets are so special and provide unconditional love :rolleyes:
Special Hugs,
