Hows your face?

Poor puppy, he had a lump come up on his face rather suddenly on Sunday. About an hour after I last saw him I was like 'Michael, has Pedro got a big lump on his face or is it just me?'

The vet thought he may have had a sting and prescribed some anti-histamines and a anti-inflammatory. 2 days later we were back at the vets, who though he might have a seed burrowed into his face. We decided to go the whole hog and get it cut out, but unfortunately they couldn't find a seed. The lump was made up of dead hair and hair follicles, kinda gross!

We've spent the last couple of days hunkered down with him, he's better today but on the first night he was home he would cry until we were both in the same room with him, then fall into a deep sleep. He's been a bit feeble and helpless!

So the drains get taken out today and the stitches next week. He's on antibiotics for a fortnight, and we're hoping the lump won't come back after that. And here's a slightly gruesome Frankenstein photo, poor poor puppy.
