My dog sandy had her yearly check up at the Vet’s office.  Her tag was updated, heart-worm test, and we weighed options on the mass that is around one of her nipples.  She has never been spayed so mammary tumors are more common for dogs like her.  We would like to have another Sandy, I’m just not sure it will happen, it’s been almost 9 years, we have never tried leaving her with a male, and she shows no interest.   So we are going to have them remove the mammary tumor on the 15th of this month and they will do a biopsy on it.  It’s still going to seem like forever before we know for certain whether the tumor is good or bad.  I just hope for the best, she is my baby.
