(on her way to the vet this morning)
(giving me a kiss "goodbye" at the vet)
last week while giving maggie a bath, i found a protrusion near the base of her tail. at first i thought it was part of her anal gland; so, i immediately called the vet. dr. nichols told me to get her in to his office as soon as i possibly could.
about 15 minutes later, maggie was atop the examining table, her face was buried in my side, and dr. nichols was telling her that she was a "big baby"... after a little poking and prodding, dr. nichols informed me that what i had found was not a part of her anal sac (gland); rather, it was a tumor.
i swear my heart missed the next beat!!!
then, he told me that i would need to bring her on tuesday (today) in order for him to excise it.
hence, at 7:30 this morning i took her in for surgery. she did NOT want to stay (BIG BABY). as a matter of fact, she was backing her way toward the lobby door.
i've written a little about our co-dependence problem:/
anyway, i scooped her in my arms and handed her over to the assistant.
it was a long day!!!
however, when i went to retrieve my baby, i got great news:) dr. nichols said he was CERTAIN that the mass was nothing more than an enlarged skin cyst...
THANK YOU, GOD!!!

i love my big baby dogger!!!
love and God's blessings,
