On his lunchwalk Brutus met Herman, a 5 months old Dachshund.

Funny because my own name is Herman....

 

Brutus and Herman got along well.

kind of surprised.  I thought Brutus was a bit mellower than that.  all the young dachshunds I have known were like a self winding spring.  they would bounce around what ever location they were in madly until they completely wound down then collapse not moving at all until something sets them off again.  after living with one for a month or two you learn to walk quietly or hold on tightly...

Boxers stay playful like pups till they die.

They need more rest when they get older but it takes little to make them play and run around again.

 

It may not look like that in the pics, but they played, Herman was howling at Brutus to get him to join him and he did.

At one point Brutus just sat down and let the pup do his thing.

As some of you know, Brutus ate a bandage earlier this week.

So, went to the vet, and that problem is solved, it came out the natural way.

Good because Brutus can't be easily operated on due to his intestines that are located in his chest and around his heart.

 

Now the reason I put that bandage around his hind leg in the first place.

He has a little red lump there, and he sometimes licks or bites around it causing his leg to bleed.

I took a pic.

 

I will see the vet about it at thursday.

My hope is that he can remove it without much hassle.

I also fear that it might be the big C, in which case we have a problem.

Given his age ( 8 and Boxers have a life expectation of around 10) I am very very relicuctant towards chemo/radiation/ heavy meds.

I hope a local anasthesia and removal is possible.

If it is a slow grower than Brutus will outlive it in the end anyway.

 

Not happy.

 

Here's the pic. It's located at his hind leg just above the foot.

Hrmph... We cancelled the appointment for now.

It seems it's red because he was licking it, my girl said he has had that little spot for over two years and normally it's black and not irritated, he probably damaged it a bit while playing on the pavement...

We're keeping an eye on it.

 

I tend to over react when it comes to Brutus...

You're a good puppy parent. One can never be too cautious, right? 

 

Thanks.

 

We talked about it and since he had this for a few years now it's probably more of a wart.

Sometimes these turn balck and fall off, sometimes it gets a little irritated and turns red.

That's probably it.

 

I hadn't noticed it before and thought it was new and fastgrowing.

He does have another one that fell off earlier.

He's 8,5 yrs old which means he's an older Boxer now.

Still going strong, I'm glad the bandage came out..stupid me should have realised that I needed to get it off before bedtime.

I now use the spraybandaid again if necessary.
