DH and I took our dog, Tara, to the vet's yesterday as she has had a lump on her leg for some months - I've been to the vets about it twice and they just kept saying it was a fatty lump. As it had got so much bigger we went back and we were in total shock when the vet said there was nothing could be done because of where and how big the lump was and we should prepare ourselves for Tara not being with us much longer. He mentioned weeks, maybe months. She's only 8 - she'll be 9 on Christmas Day.
We are all devastated - we have had such a difficult year with one thing and another and this is just yet another blow.
We're not taking it lying down though and have asked to see a specialist.
