Update* Power of the Paw needed for Tallulah (and mom)

*Update 3/27 at 11 AM*
Tallulah came through surgery and is recovering now. I get to pick her up at noon and will spend the rest of the day with her at home.
During the dental portion of the procedure, the vet did find another small mass on the underside of her tongue which will also be sent off for testing.
Counting the minutes until I can go get her!
Thank you to everyone who has prayed, sent good juju or positive thoughts our way. We really do appreciate the love and compassion of our friends.

Original post
Tallulah's mystery spot on her toe pad did not heal like the other boo boo. That means it is a mass. She goes in tomorrow morning for surgery to remove it. The vet will send it for pathology testing so we won't know right away what it is.
Please keep Tallulah in your prayers tomorrow morning as she undergoes anesthesia (always a risk and especially for underweight dogs). We'll update as soon as we can tomorrow.


  1. Paws crossed. My Bouncer #276 had to have one of his right rear toes amputated cause of a mast cell tumor. It's more common that I knew. It was very scary for me cause he's my baby, so I know how you feel. Hopefully grade 1 and clear margins.
    Bouncer is fine today (knock wood) and the surgeon did a beautiful job on his foot. He now has a mafia nick-name: Johnny 3 toes!

  2. Sending all our prayers and POTP to Tallulah and mom too. We will keep you in our thoughts tomorrow that everything goes well for her.

  13. Oh I feel so so so horrible that I did not know about this. We are praying for you. Even if it is a mass, remember that our Tubby had mast cell tumor 3 years ago and is fine. We know Tallulah will be too.
