Waiting at Happy Pooch
What a week! But the dust has finally settled after an unsettling encounter with a tumor discovered while being groomed by Melissa at Happy Pooch Styling and Spa three weeks ago. Long story short, Melissa was concerned about a subcutaneous lump in his groin that we might never have never noticed, that is until she gave him his summer haircut and found it. On her advise we took him to Fairhaven Veterinary Clinic that very same afternoon, and surgery to remove a suspicious tumor was successfully performed this week.

Well, the patient has been on the mend and is doing well. The mass was atypical and removing it was a good move. And the lab report for the tissue...benign. 

Not much sleep this week, needless to say, but we'll be back to normal soon. Casey is still adjusting to his new accessory, a post-op collar to keep him from exploring the incision. But now, following doctor Kris Johnson's orders to keep him fairly inactive for two weeks - no running, Frisbee, and on a leash - is the real challenge.
