Re: Poor Pearl

Bob... Our Weimaraner Greta had one lump about the size of a golf ball on her thigh/knee, it grew very slowly. Pearl had a lump, that fit in my flat palm, on her lower belly. It was the same size for at least 2 years, it was the only one she had. These last few months she has sprouted lumps and bumps all over her... and the big one in her groin area... I had never ever noticed until about a week ago??? I was so shocked when I saw it, because I am very careful to check both the dogs for stickers, foxtails, ticks, and any other thing they can pick up outside. Also I hand bathe my dogs in the tub, and I would have definitely felt such a thing in the scrubbing process... I am totally shocked by this development.

I don't expect it will go away on its own, but I do not plan to put her through surgery unless it looks to be causing her a problem. My Vet is going to give
me some Chinese herbs that he believes will help shrink it (??) I will give it a try, as long as it doesn't make her sick, and is not to difficult to administer.
Thank you for your support

Re: Poor Pearl

I'm just seeing this thread - so glad to hear that it's just a fatty tumor!! So scary when our babies develop crazy things that quickly. My brother just lost his 15 year old chocolate lab/pointer and she had lots of fatty bumps (some the size of tennis balls) for years and they never seemed to bother her. Hopefully you can breath a little easier now and get back to having fun with your crew!

Re: Poor Pearl

So Fox, you have a Weimaraner too? I'd be jealous if I wasn't so happy for you! How is reacting to Pearl's illness? I hope that she doesn't get too stressed out. What pals must those two must be and quadruple the love for you!

Please tell Greta that in Google there is a story about a 10 year old Weim named Jasmine who is a heroine because she took 5 bullets ! In defending her family! Although a dog mate and her human family died (but the armed fiend is up for capital murder AND felony animal cruelty) Jasmine is ALIVE and on the mend. She is as fearless and bold as she was bred to be and is beautiful!

I am sure that Pearl will be proud too!

Much love and I will let my prayer partner know the good news! ;D

Re: Poor Pearl

Ah Cuddles, I should have been more specific, Greta is actually a past tense :'( How ever she and Pearl were very good buddies). We lost Our sweet Greta in 2012 at age 12, she was our first Vizsla Foxy's mentor, and what a wonderful mentor she was. Greta had been through Gun dog school, and was so well behaved, she taught our little Foxy just what all the rules were, she even taught the little V pup to swim. We took Pearl in about 1 wk after we lost Greta, and she and Foxy shared our home, and they so loved each other until we lost Foxy to Valley Fever. We only had Pearl alone for a short time and we got Fergy. That is where we are today with Pearl now 10 yrs old and Mr. F who will be 3 yrs next mo.
We often dog sit my daughters choc. Lab Churro, and I often talk about Max who is a V 4 mo. younger than Fergy and we Play together several times a week.
