Team Tank

I'm posting late today because I had to take Tank to the vet. I couldn't put my finger on it, but I felt something wasn't right. The only telltale sign I had was that he would pant for no apparent reason at random times of the day.

After a very thorough examination, the vet said all his lymph nodes were swollen. This could be due to several things, but we pretty much ruled out everything but one--the worst one. Canine lymphoma.

We had some lab work done and I hope to hear something more conclusive by tomorrow.


Please keep my poor Tank in your prayers and thoughts. He's a good boy. The best.

I'll keep Tank in my prayers, Maria.

We had a rottie named Bear and he was just the most awesome dog. Our daughter was 5 at the time and it was so funny to see them standing face to face while she ordered him (150 lbs) around.

Aw, poor guy. Hope everything is okay. Sometimes I can tell my dog isn't feeling well because she'll follow me everywhere and wants to cuddle all day.
