I had a lump show up on my neck. My people looked at it and said it looked just like the one that was cut off my side a couple of years ago. My woman said the stuff that makes up my outer layer of skin made a plug and pushed up through a hair follicle. Since it's not bad they decided to watch it to make sure I left it alone and it didn't get infected. My collar had rubbed on it and made it bleed.
My people decided to start using a harness to hook my leash up to so my collar wouldn't rub the lump.
Bethmassagelady has been saying my back has been sore when she gives me a massage so my people hoped the harness would help with that too.
My woman's been looking for my regular harness for a year so we went to Petsmart and bought a new one.
My last massage Bethmassagelady said my back was good and I didn't have as many neck issues. My people think those won't go away because I'm CRAZY when I play tug of war! All 4 feet come off the ground!!!
The plug came out, my people think I scratched it off but I'm not telling, and the lump is all gone now! I have another one behind my ear that I don't mess with.
The woman who owns the pool I swim at thinks they may be able to open another one up on my side of the river! It's supposed to be for dogs like me that are swimming for fun and exercise instead of therapy. I hope they get it open!
My last swim was free, I only fell in the pool a couple of times and I even took cooling off breaks on my own!
My man stayed home yesterday and today because he's sick! He's so sick we didn't go for a walk and play this morning like we always do. I've been taking care of him.
My woman has a half an eyelid that got puffy a couple of days ago. She thinks her eye got itchy while she slept so she was rubbing the itchy part without knowing it and made the eyelid swell. It's not bad but it makes the eyelashes on that part poke her in the eye.
