For the first time I was afraid to take the boys in for their annuals. Max has had a growth on his side which has grown from the size of a tiny marble to that of an egg and I just didn't want to know. He's no youngster and I would not put him under the knife at this point and I was scared. He's happy, playful, eats, poops, and pees and has quality of life and I wasn't going to mess with that.

Seems the boy has fatty tumors! I was so afraid of much worse news and was so elated when I heard the vets words! He's getting another lovely one on his other side now but we're just leaving them alone.

Otherwise everyone's okay and updated on shots. They've all lost a couple of pounds over the last year. Max went from 67 lbs to 62 ( he's a very picky eater), Duncan lost 1 lb. and Jake lost 6 lbs. As the years move on I try to keep their weights healthy hoping to avoid hip problems, so if I see anyone getting a bit too chunky I cut back on the treats (milk bones mostly). They each got a cheeseburger after the vet visit!! LOL

Jakey's face is getting white (he's 7.5 y.o.), mostly around the muzzle and eyes, Max is 9 and has an all grey beard and is greying around his muzzle, and Duncan (approx 6.5)is a black lab and has some grey in his chin and his underside. They're my beautiful boys.

Glad that the news from the vet was good! And good for you, watching their weight. I see too many overweight labs these days.

Those fatty tumors are so incredibly common in Labs. My Lab/Collie cross had them too and we just left them alone.

Glad they are doing so well!
