Stressful day

Well, we closed on the new house on Tuesday and have been going back and forth from our apartment to the new hosue since the closing. Except for tonight, we took a night off but unfortunately it wasn't for fun.
Last night I found a large (egg sized) lump in my male dogs neck. So we took him to the Vet this evening and we still don't know what's up.

Other than the lump he's perfectly healthy. A little overweight (but this has been an issue for years). His heart and stomach sound good and he doesn't have any swelling, even his other lymph nodes look good. He's eating, drinking and going to the bathroom normally. He's also full of energy just as he always is.
So the Vet did a biopsy and a blood test and we'll know either tomorrow or Saturday. I'm worried, he's my baby and I just want to know he's okay.

Awww, your dog is cute. I hope the lump turns out to be nothing serious. I know if something like that was going on with my cat it would be all I could think about. But it sounds like there are a lot of signs that your dog is healthy. I'll be thinking of him and hoping for the best will you wait for the test results.

Hopefully is is just a benign tumor. My sisters dog has had several of these. They just remove them or leave them if they don't grow too big.

It may be a fatty tumor. Sometimes dogs get them as they get older.

What a cute pooch. I hope he is going to be OK.
