I was petting my big dog Ralph and I found a lump on his chin. It was pretty big, and he’s old, almost 13. We took him to the vet and got it aspirated, which was scary. He seems ok now, and the vet is running tests, and said it’s probably alright and nothing to worry about, but I hate any kind of vet anything. I love my dogs so much, and I feel helpless when anything goes wrong, when they seem ill or scared or anything less than completely content and happy. Ralph is now sleeping off all the vet trauma and is gonna get lots of dog loving and massages and a nice long play with his favorite wooly felt toy snake later.
If you have animals, please pet them and love them and work from home whenever you can, and try to walk them every day and feed them the best food you can afford and get them the best medical treatment you are able to get for them and even if you don’t have money you can still love them and love them and love them because money matters less than love and when you walk by don’t just walk by them – be sure to kiss them on the forehead and look them in the eyes and thank them for being yours because one day they will be taken from you and you will not be ready for it and if you did not do all of this, you will be swallowed whole with regret.
