A Hurting Pup

I apologize for my absence yesterday, as my husband and I were a little preoccupied. On Monday evening, we took our pup, Bean, to a vet appointment. An hour and a half later, we were leaving the office with the news that she has a Mast Cell Tumor. After much research, we found that this can be common in dogs, and often benign. However, our vet recommended removing the area ASAP for a biopsy. Yesterday, little Bean went in to surgery. She was able to come home last night, but has a pretty big battle wound -- a 3 inch long incision and 10 staples in her back. Needless to say, she's hurting today, so I've been keeping her company. While we're snuggled up on the couch together, I've been checking out some doggie sweaters for little Bean. For surgical reasons, a large area of her pretty black coat had to be shaved away. Not wanting her to be bare for the holiday season, I found a few options that would be dashing on her (all available at PetSmart!) I might be calling the hubby to pick one up for her on his way home tonight... along with a little treat to make her feel better. I'll be sure to keep you all updated on her progress and results of the biopsy. In the meantime, think happy thoughts for our bouncing Boston!

Which sweater is your favorite for Bean?

I personally think Bean would look adorable in the second one!
