My Sweet Boy Bo

Happy Friday everyone! I am so glad the weekend is finally about to start it has been such a long week.
Today I want to talk about my sweet Bo he will be 10 in January and any of you that have pets know they really are your babies. Since B & I have never been able to have children he is really my baby.

Over a month ago I went outside to play with Bo and noticed a raw piece on the top of his ear. I didn't know what he did hit it? scratch it? I had no clue other than it was a piece about the size of my pinkie that was open and raw. That was on Saturday by Monday morning it was terrible. B took him to the vet turns out it was a tumor that broke through the skin. They removed one on his stomach and another on his foot but said it was to dangerous for them to remove the one on his ear so they stitched it back so it would not get infected. (He had several tumors removed about a year and half to two years ago) In just over a week after he came home the one on his ear had at least tripled in size. He took him back and they told him he would have to put him down or send him to a specialist. Putting him down was not an option. We took him to a different vet and he was able to remove it even though he lost most of his ear. I won't post pictures of what it looked before he went to the second vet because it was terrible and not for anyone with a week stomach.

The surgery with the second vet went amazing he did loose most of his ear but for now he is much better. The few days after I brought him home I will be honest I was truly questioning my decision wondering if I was jsut being selfish by doing whatever to keep him. He had some type of problem with his eyes where I wondered if he was going to loose his vision the drops they gave him though worked miracles. It hurt him to eat and he just basically would lay there. It broke my heart. I cried more during those few weeks than I have in a very long time. I have to say I have the best Mama, sisters and daddy who constantly there when I needed to talk or cry and were always calling to check to see how he was feeling.

I am happy to say now that he is back to his old self for the most part. His appetite is back he has more energy and is playing and having a wonderful time.

This is my sweet boy before (I think this was from last summer)

This is my baby now he still has stitches until sometime next week but looks so much better than I would have ever expected when all of this started.



  1. Oh my, this post got me teary eyed. I'm so glad that Bo is better. He is SUCH a good boy and I think he looks adorable!

  2. How heartbreaking for you. I am so glad that Bo is doing better. I know how horrible it is when one of your pet-children are sick :( Take care of him :)

  3. Oh poor Bo! I'm so glad he's doing better. I'll keep y'all in my prayers! xoxo

  4. Poor Bo! Our dogs definitely are our babies, aren't they? Glad he's doing better. I can't imagine losing either of mine.

  5. I am glad everything worked out for Bo. Tucker is definitely my third child. I am glad Bo has such a loving family who care about him.

  6. I'm so sorry about your pup, thinking of him and you all. Glad he is doing better :-)

  7. oh my goodness! i am so glad he is doing better!

  8. Aw, I'm glad he's doing better. Dogs really become a part of the family

  9. My kitty had a tumor inside his ear. We had it removed right before Christmas last year, and he's been perfectly fine ever since.
