A quick google of "lump after rabies vaccine" (ignorance IS bliss), can lead to thoughts of "holy crap", especially when you're a bit fragile. We were.
Bruce was his usual adorable self all the way to the city. Actually, looking back, I'd say he was beyond adorable, which lead to a trip to Petsmart AND G&E pharmacy. What can I say, we had time to kill, we felt bad for the poor dog, and we were weak.
The vet appointment? Well he wasn't dying of vaccinosis, it wasn't a tumor, and no limbs would be lost. Bruce has an abcess. Our best guess - Antonio or Buster poked him in the butt. Not an uncommon occurance as the cats take great pleasure in ambushing the dogs. The dogs which aren't allowed to chase cats of course.
What did Bruce learn today? How to milk the system. Look at his Haul! A cool ball that Louanne's dog Kipp is quite fond of, a fancy big Nylabone, and two beefchews. He hit the jackpot. Next he'll be figuring out some sort of payment scheme with the cats so that they can all profit next time.
Thanks for taking one for the team Bruce!
