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.
Here are some black and white photos from our beach play date on Monday.
