A scare

Dozer has always had a little bump on his left foot. We've asked the doc about it just to be told it is nothing but keep an eye on it "just in case".

Well the just in case happened. Carl was giving the big guy a bath and started hollering at me to "look at this". He let Dozer out of the tub and brought him downstairs. What I saw scared the crap out of me. His little bump swelled about 4 times its normal size and looked ready to burst.

See? (and this is after two days of meds)

I took him to the vet. They said it was a cyst and had an infection but nothing to worry about. It isn't a tumor thank heavens. Plus he has a double ear infection.

So for Christmas (and his birthday which is Christmas day) my baby is on an antibiotic, an inflammatory, and ear drops.

Bless his little heart - and foot.
