I was so worried. She has developed lumps all over her abdomen in the last six months. Turns out she has a herniated belly button and lipomas which is good. I opted not to have a chest x-ray since if she has lung cancer it means the cancer has metasticised. (sp)
What a trip though. I decided to take the two dogs. What a mistake. Bailey pooped in the parking lot. They walked into the vet practice which is huge and has a huge waiting room barking and carrying on. I sat in a corner with them while everyone laughed. How embarrassing. After the vet checked Nellie out and I was paying the bill Nellie pulled out of her collar and Baiiley tried to attack another dog. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about that.
He has become very protective of me and Nellie and I have to stop this but don't know how.

Glad Nellie had an okay checkup.
My Magnum has developed a lot of lipomas as well. Ruger has one small one. My vet says they are inherited... some dogs just have more than others get.
I am glad Nellie had a good checkup. Sounds like quite a time you had at the vet. You are brave taking two dogs.
Always nice to hear about a good check-up. The waiting room had some excitement though
Glad the lumps are lipomas. I could never take my two at the same time to the vet they both get worked up, Bear especially and he becomes a different dog. If Bailey is protective all the time you may want to talk to a decent trainer who can help you nip this in the bud before it blossoms into a behaviour you cannot eliminate, but I also think you have to factor in the stress of a vet in this particular scenario.
Thanks for the Nellie update- good
Glad to hear Nellie is doing well! I don't know how old Bailey is, but my Barney is almost 2. In September, I had plumbing problems and for almost a month service people were in and out of the house. I was here of course. Barney started to get alot more protective of me and Tal. I had wanted to take him to a training class and that seems to have helped alot. They gave me some things I can work on with him, which I will do more of once finals are over with next week. I think a trainer would be a good idea.
I usually take both of mine to the vet. Admitedly, they have been a bit of a challenge together. I have started to make them sit and stay before I open the car door, same when they get out. That seems to have calmed them enough that the last time we went, it was not nearly the challenge it has been. Hope it gets better for ya!
I'm glad Nellie had a good check up! Glad it's just lipomas!

You are brave taking two dogs ! I know that I struggled at the dog show with two excited pups.....................now I didn't mean it like that ! behave.
Glad Nellie's ok
Now you know what it feels like to be me. The vet office seems to bring out the worst in them.They walked into the vet practice which is huge and has a huge waiting room barking and carrying on. I sat in a corner with them while everyone laughed.
Prayers for good health for Miss Nellie.
