When it was still there a week or so later, I figured we better get it checked. It was small, and I thought it was probably just a mole or skin tag, but made an appointment anyway. The night before the appointment, I took this picture of it.

He also found a broken tooth in the back of her mouth, so said they'd remove it and clean her teeth too. While she was out, an Xray revealed another tooth with a very small fracture, so that one had to go too.
Poor kid was not very happy when she came home. But hope for treats always springs eternal - she crashed in the hallway across from the pantry where her treats are stored. :)

Slices of hot dog seemed to make her feel a LOT better. :)
We're supposed to be keeping her quiet - the vet said 10-14 days at first, but when I told him my sister's dog Reggie was coming to stay with us he lowered it to 5. Well, Reg arrived at about the three-and-a-half-days point, and they've been playing pretty crazy, but we're trying to keep it to a lower roar than usual. But I can't even get a few decent pics of them together cuz they're always a blur....

They say ignorance is bliss, but... knowledge is power - so personally I think it's better to know what's up with your pup! It's worrisome to wait on the results, but we're thinking pawsitive!
Thanks in advance for sending pawsitive thoughts! And don't forget to check YOUR pets for lumps and bumps and if you find any, get them checked out!
