Today we found out our dog Chloe has cancer. Jeff took her in for a heart worm shot and while there he asked the vet to look at a little red lump on her leg. It had shown up after we got a lot of snow so we thought maybe she injured herself while playing in the snow and ice. Over the past week the lump had grown bigger.

When Jeff got home I asked what the doctor said about Chloe's leg and when he told me it was cancer I was shocked. Chloe is only 9 months old. We had to put our dog Lucy, a gorgeous yellow lab, to sleep last year and it was very, very hard on all of us. I just thought, not again.

Well after talking to the vet we are going to take Chloe in for a very expensive 15 minute operation tomorrow. The doctor will remove the tumor which is about the size of a pencil eraser and send it in for analysis. The doctor thinks that once removed she should be ok but there is the possibility that another one could come back. We will just have to wait to see what the lab says about the tumor.
