Poor Fisher! We found some blood on his hind paw, and with a closer look, we discovered two of his nails were split to the nail bed. I don't think he did it during our recent backpacking trip with me, the dogs and Lisa; so it must have been our hike up TableRock the other day!

I took him to our wonderful vet, Reed, and poor Fischey had to be sedated so that Reed could take off ALL of the hard part of both nails! While sedated, Reed also removed a wart on the top of his head (that kept growing slowly)......and then he found a TUMOR! NOT a wart! A tumor! UGH! It gave Reed no reason to believe it was cancer, and he was confident that he got all of the tumor. Praise God!


I had my little chat with Fischey, reminding him that he needs to stay healthy so that he can stick around for a long, long time......he has a little one (or two) coming to play with him someday soon! Can't you just picture it!?!?

So, I couldn't resist this photo. Poor guy was still out of it when he got home. He just zonked! I loved on him and talked to him until he fell asleep. He slept with his tongue hanging out!

He will be feeling better and on the run in no time......once the meds wear off and some healing occurs! Like below, which was just a few weeks ago!

Poor little guy! I'm happy they got the tumor - how scary!! These guys are our BABIES! WE have a large dog (English Mastiff) and i keep talking to him about how soon he'll have a little brother to play with (so I'm praying he sticks around.... forever)! How cute wil they be!? The picture of him napping is ADORABLE!! Gorgous pup.

Thanks for the dog love, you guys! YES! They are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside! :) Such precious precious souls. And YES! OUR BABIES!!!! I cannot WAIT to see them playing with our son or kiddos someday soon! It will totally bless my heart! I just want our children to KNOW both Fischer and Kastle, so they can remember them forever!!! :o) And YES! Totally praying that the tumor was a fluke and NO MORE will present themselves again ~ benign or otherwise! PLEASE GOD, PROTECT THEM BOTH!!!!

JODY ~ I can't wait to see photos of your little one playing with your gorgeous mastiff!!!! awesome!!!
