Crossed Paws, Please?

I had planned to post a review today, but my mind is just not there.  Instead I'm asking if you all would please send good vibes and cross your paws for us today.

Lola had a "not-like-the-others" lump checked out during her annual vet visit in September.  It wasn't a typical "fatty lump" like most dogs get (Zeus is covered with them and Lola has had some before), however when the vet did a needle biopsy, she didn't see any cancerous cells under the microscope.... so we opted to watch it.  Well, it started to grow and she also started getting other lumps around it, in her chest, etc.  On Tuesday night, we headed off to see our wonderful vet to have them checked out again...

I'd been so concerned with the growing lump and the tiny ones around it, I hadn't totally noticed that those tiny ones were popping up all over, including her back legs as well.  Our vet was baffled (again, they do not appear to be those usual "fatty lumps"), as was the other vet on staff.  We opted to do more needle biopsies, but instead of our vet taking a look, she sent them right out to the lab for a pathologist to look at them.  Unfortunately, he was just as baffled and couldn't make heads or tails out of the slides.  

My baby girl is having her biopsy today... Good vibes & crossed paws are much appreciated!

Which leads us to today... Lola is having a multiple site biopsy and her Mama is having a bit of a freak out over having to put her old girl under for this.  I'll feel better later this afternoon when they call to tell me the surgery went well...sigh.  Would you please cross those paws and send good vibes our way?

Lola sensed how much her Mama was freaking out this morning and gave me lots of kisses. I know she wouldn't want me to spend all day worrying, so I'll leave you all with something that makes her happy, updates on her foster babies!

Belle and her kitty siblings have headed South to New Mexico for the winter.  Look at how big she's gotten!  I absolutely adore this picture...

Harper is looking as beautiful as ever.  We're hoping to schedule a play date with her family sometime soon.

Booth is as stinking adorable as ever... I love those squinty little eyes and that face!  The first shot below is actually of him heading off to daycare this morning... looks like his Mama woke him up too early, ha ha!

I know I just posted a couple new shots of Lampchop from our visit this past weekend, but I can't resist sharing these two shots from her Mom.  In the first one, she's cuddling her froggy that I bought for her... have you seen anything cuter?!?!  I really miss that two-toned nose of hers!

We've all got paws and fingers and toes crossed. Let us know how she is later. We hate those dumb lumps that pop up when we least expect.

We definitely have our paws crossed for you. I dont want to scare you but could the lumps be mast cells, lumps these are malignant but if caught early enough treatable Tubby is a 3 year survivor of mast cell cancer

I know how scary lumps are, they are just the worst
