    So glad it all went without any hitches.
    Fingers crossed for a non sinister biopsy result.

    Deer Boofy,

    Tell your mum that sick Puggies need lots and lots of extra treats to aid their recovery after surgery. Treats should be produced at least every half hour so you don't fade away after the horror of missing a meal before the nasties were done.

    Eat lots and be well.

    Your friend in Puggieness,

    The Lady Arwen (Miz)

    Lady Arwen, I know that you are a lady of great wisdom...but my Boofles already suffers from a wide girth. Is it suitable perhaps that I swap the treats for kisses and cuddles every half hour?

    Deer Miz Anne,

    I guess that's acceptable but make sure the kisses are snuffly and of medium sogginess and the cuddles must be big fat snuggly ones.

    your friend,

    Lady Arwen (Miz)

    The results are in - stage 1 Mast Cell Tumour. Thankfully it was only stage 1.

    Keith emailed me the report from the pathology lab and I found this very interesting;

    COMMENTS
    Canine mast cell tumours (MCTs) are one of the most common tumours diagnosed in veterinary medicine. These are very common cutaneous tumours of older dogs though they may occur at any age and have been reported in juveniles. Boxer, Bulldog, Staffordshire Bull terrier, Labrador, Dachshund, Beagle, Golden Retriever, Pug, Weimeraner and Fox
    terriers have increased risk of developing MCT. Lesions may be single or multiple. Most commonly tumours occur in the caudal part of the body, but may occur anywhere.
    The "caudal" is obviously the rear of the back leg as this is where Boof's was and the report states his was;
    "Lesion growing on caudal R thigh. Starting to look angry."


    So, good news is that he is A OK!

    Are you going through with any radiation etc - in case it is elsewhere?

    Glad you got it out in time

    Stage 1 means that the cells are not the type to move anywhere else. Stage 2 is when it begins to and stage 3 is when it well and truly can migrate.

    There is not further treatment, just to keep watching to ensure no others turn up.

    Oh Anne, that is good news indeed that it wasn't a nasty one. Give Boofy a huge cuddle for me.
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.
