Lumpy and Bumpy

I took Gracie to see the vet about a month ago because she had lumps growing on her hind end.  The vet did a biopsy right there in the office and it turned out that everything was fine.

Now I am noticing more lumps.  The one on her hind end has grown to twice the size and now there is a pretty big one on her front chest just above the top of her legs.  

There is also a different kind of a bump/lump that is growing on her back.  

She seems fine and eats and drinks well, but I'm a little concerned about my findings.

I go through her fur from top to bottom almost every night, looking for fleas/bugs/bumps or whatever.  

On Tuesday I will call the vet and make another appointment for her to be seen.  I'm sure it is probably nothing, but I will not take any chances.  

I love my Gracie girl and the thought of her growing older and having health problems makes me feel sad.  

Dear Diary,

10 PM Bug Check is getting to be ridiculous here.   There is absolutely no place to hide that is safe enough.  Dang this stub-of-a-tail!  She sees it every. single. time.
