Updates and other news...

My mom wanted me to be sure and tell you all that she very much appreciated all the good thoughts and prayers you sent up for our Grandpa. He is doing much better today and will probably be moved out of ICU and into a regular room. He may be at the hospital for a few more days though.
When she got back from sitting with Grandpa at the hospital today guess where I got to go? The V-E-T! Can you believe that? I didn't even get any fair warning either. It just happened! Dad was petting me and said "Hey, what's that on Rocky's hind quarter? And Mom said "What?" and then the next thing I know BAM! I'm on the examining table! The spot didn't look quite like the picture shown here when Mom took me in. It was just a raised spot with all the hair off of it. It was a fairly large spot and Mom was concerned it might be ring worm. The doc said it could be, but it didn't test positive for that. He gave me some antibiotics and some cream to put on it though. He said he wanted to see me back if it doesn't get better or if I get more spots. Then he will do a biopsy...
I did get a new collar out of the deal though. When Mom was getting ready to take me to the vet she couldn't find a collar here at the house that fit me. Can you believe she had the nerve to ask the Vet's assistant if they had any big collars that would fit my "fat" neck? The nice lady was quick to correct Mom though. She told her my neck was not "fat", it was muscular. So there! Anyways, I will keep you guys posted on what happens with this spot and I will also give you updates on my Grandpa! Thanks again for all your thoughts & prayers!

We are so happy to hear about your grandpa - our mom figured there was something going on...he will be in our prayers when we are begging from the dinner table.

Wow - the vet??!! We hope heals quickly (or doesn't spread!) We had our annual exam on Wednesday and we were healthy. Mom says Willie is even tubbier... a whopping 32 lbs!

We are glad to hear Grandpa is doing better, we will continue to send healing vibes. That dot looks like the ones the doofus gets, they get all grosstastic then just go away.

Hi, I just came across this post as I was surfing. Wondering if you ever had a biopsy done? My dog has similar raised bald spots. Also wondering about the seizures? I'll look through your previous posts. Hope the boys are well. Bostons are the greatest! Take care.
