Doggies get cancer too

Our dog Duke had a couple growths pop up - one on his belly, another on his ear. The one on his belly had been there for a while, but the one on his ear popped up fast. We took him to the vet and were devastated to find out they were mast cell tumors - cancer. They needed to be removed. The only way to make sure the one on his ear was completely removed was to completely remove the ear. We had no choice - the vet had to do what he had to do.

Well, I'm happy to report that even though Duke is partially earless, he is cancer free (for now). All of the tumors were removed and they were both Stage 1 and hadn't spread.

Thanks to all of you who prayed for our little guy!
