Helo has a lump!

It’s a tiny lump, smaller than a pea. I grabbed him to give him a hug around the neck and I felt what I thought was a tick (which is weird because I haven’t found any ticks on the dogs in years thanks to K9 Advantix). I got down on the floor and was feeling around through his fur for the tick, but all I found was a little lump under the skin. I’m going to keep an eye on it, since it appears to be a lot like the little lump he had on his back. The other lump went away after the veterinarian did a fine needle aspiration on it. When he looked at the contents under the microscope, he said there wasn’t really anything there. Nothing to indicate a lipoma or anything like that… I guess if it starts to grow any larger, I’ll take him in for another fine needle aspiration.

I love dogs and I love the beach. Life is good!

Sam, Helo, and Bae got to run on the beach today.
