Cancer can Suck it!!

My babies had their yearly check ups last week and 2 wks ago I noticed a spot on Lills that I never noticed before I am always checking her for bumps, moles, freckles and everything in between, because she was diagnosed 3 yrs ago with a mass cell tumor. Unfortunately after being cancer free for 3 yrs its reared its ugly head again.

:(

She has to have surgery soon... they have to remove all of the tissue down to her muscle. So another ugly scar, it breaks my heart. Good news... if there is any I guess, is that I caught it early and they should be able to get rid of the cancer with the surgery. Fingers and paws crossed!

So in the mean time we are playing ball, eating lots of treats, and getting in lots of snuggling time in.

Oscar had a great check up, his ears looked good and the doc said he could lose a few lbs even tho he is only 31 lbs his highest has been 36. I feel pretty good about his weight right now, especially since running times have been cut do to the 100 degree weather we are having UGH its HOT!!!!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer! Xo

I'm so sorry to hear about her cancer coming back! We will be thinking about her!! My goodness 31 lbs???? I got Mitzu up to 27 a few months after we rescued her and the vet yelled at me! She hovers around 23-24 now. My husband's boss has 2 pugs and because they are vegetarian, so are her pugs! Their pugs are skinny...only about 17-18lbs! Have a happy Summer!
