Praying for Doggie Cellulite

Mom is a little worried. She's taking Duncan to Dr. Vet Wednesday. This has me worried too. Boo.

It's time for Duncan's annual check up, where they do extra tests and stuff to him cause he's a "senior" or what I call, old fart. But mom said they are going to do some extra tests and we need to keep our paws crossed that they come out okay.

See, Duncan is lumpy. He has several fatty tumors that are just that--a doggy form of cellulite. But one of his tumors seems to have grown a friend, and mom is hoping it's just more cellulite.

On his front right leg, right under his armpit is a tumor that's been there for year or two, it's just cellulite. But now below that, more on his legbone is another bump that also feels like it's growing around his leg.

This has mom freaked out, so Dr. Vet is going to "buy-op-see" it this week.

Mom won't say what else it could be, but it has her worried. Dad says it's nothing and just more Duncan lumps. She says whatever it is, they're having it removed cause it's kinda big and we think is bothering Duncan's walking. So please keep your paws crossed that it's just cellulite!!


  1. I, too, hope it's more Duncan lumps. Please keep us posted! Good luck!

  2. The V-E-T sayed my sis Dixie's belleh feels like the rolling hills of Pencilvania wif all her celluleets. She do be an old fart, too, BOL! Hope that just be more celluleets on Duncan. I keeps my paws crossed fur him.

  3. We have all paws crossed her for Duncan. We know how worried you much be. Mom freaks out over things too which has caused her to race all of us and the ones from the past to the vet. Let us know please! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  4. Oh, paws crossed for sure. Please let us know how the tests come out.

  5. Our hu-dad is quite the worrier and has us tested for things. Always good to know that you have spent money and the results are fine. Hope that is the case! Paws crossed.

  6. We sure hope it's just a lump! We Greyhounds are well aware of other things it could be that aren't good. Whatever that biopsy costs, Mom says it's worth it for peace of mind! Good luck, Duncan!


  7. Laura had this lump in her for the last 2 years of her life. We were quite worried about it as it kept moving around and ended up in different places. However since she was old, we decided to let it be and not visit the vet just in case he said it was a tumor and needed surgery. We didn't want her to suffer at the end of her life.

  8. We will keep our paws crossed it's just another fatty tumor.
