New family member! This is Mandie. ::super_happy::

Picked her up from the breeder/trainer Tuesday. She's a started gun dog, already trained but she's spent all her life to date living at the kennel where she was born. So she's adjusting to living with us. Everything's a new experience (don't think she'd ever been inside a home before) so it's been fun watching her get settled in at our place. Had a couple of good sessions working with her since getting home.

As you'd expect from a lab, she's nuts about water - tried to get in the bucket! :lol:

Congratulations. She is a looker. And even in a photo you can see the energy and intelligence in her face and eyes. May you both enjoy long years afield.

Thanks. Real pleased with her so far, and my other young dog. At my age, probably the last dogs I'll ever need. My oldest grandson will soon be 12 years old, so time to get him started working with the dogs!

Mazie has found a new friend. Or at least she thinks so. The friend wasn't too interested. :lol:

Some good looking critters and interesting pics Gents.

Nikki had a surgery again to remove some massive but benign fatty tumors yesterday. Had this done previous about 18 months ago. We leave them alone until they cause pain, discomfort or impact to her mobility. These were causing the latter of those. She had a sub muscle tumor on front passenger side that was huge when he dug it out. Also one in her haunch web where the torso meets the back leg, about the size of a softball.

Poor old girl is beat up from the feet up today. Some pretty huge incisions and these are just 2 of the 4 incisions. Need her ready for what may be her last bird season. This dog lives for the sound of a shotgun.

Thankfully, my Vet does his profession for the love of animals, not to make his car payment.

I remember a story in our American Lit book in school about a family and their Bull Terrier. He did all kinds of crazy things, including dragging home a full sized man hole cover.

That's incredible. Manhole covers are very heavy, enough to take your fingers off if you let it fall shut. I wonder how the dog managed that. The lid must have already been off, no way the dog would have been able to get it otherwise.

Jerry: So many dogs develop tumors both benign and otherwise. Has your vet ever mentioned what causes this "epidemic?"

Thanks John.

Yea, Garry, my lumpy lab is not unique. Not sure exactly why but labs are pretty susceptible to them but some get them and some don't. Kind of all or nothing so to speak. Sure as heck aint the $55 for 30 pounds of food I feed. Started when she was about 7 yrs old. She is ten now.

Here is what Google has to say...

http://www.petmd.com/dog/conditions/ski ... ?page=show.

The one on the front shoulder was impeding her movement pretty good. First one of about 12 (two surgeries) he pulled out that was under the muscle. The one they removed from her side look like she had a golf ball under her skin.

She is doing much better today, actually moving and wagging quite a bit.

Thanks for the google reference. It does a fine job of explaining diagnosis and treatments. Unfortunately (and typically) it does not discuss, even theoretically, causes. Yes, some breeds like Labs, appear more susceptible, but malignant tumors occur with virtually every breed and in great numbers. Speculation includes things such as sniffing the ground so much they pick up the residue of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. Or, it is a reaction to food allergies. Many brands have eliminated grains from their products because reactions are so common. These are all guesses as far as I know.

I am just glad that your girl is not dealing with malignancy and definitely hope you will both be able to enjoy another shooting season. Best wishes for your great friend.

Thanks for the well wishes Garry my friend. She is a real sweetheart. Actually, we always had family dogs but this is the first dog that was "My dog" I got at 42 years old. Just never thought it was fair to have a big dog (not a small dog guy personally, that is the wife's department) without a big yard so I waited that long to have one as my own. Others mileage may vary.
Hard to watch getting older and slower but she still has some good years left in her. We are gonna make the best of them.
Regards, Jerry
