And there it was one day right out of the blue. It's hard, it's round, it's on my furry child. It's.....it's.....it's.....a lump!!! Alert, Alert!!! Oh my goodness, as I sit next to her and stare at it. No, it couldn't be. I feel it again to double check and triple check. I do a dog once over again and again, all over. Yes, it's still there. It wasn't there yesterday. We check you everyday in our morning ritual to get you ready for your day.
