Ben's Results

One of Ben's doctors called me today with results.  Seems the results of the biopsy report and other tests turned out okay. 
Just in case you are wondering...... just behind Ben is a wooden TV tray which I've pushed under the side table.  Otherwise that goofy boy gets his butt under it and when getting up tilts everything off the damn table.  I love my boy but he is surely a bull in a china shop.  

SO, what causes the spleen to enlarge??  It is a sort of alert system.
Blood runs thru the spleen which makes it react to certain environmental changes; his eating something, drinking water outside, eating squirrel and rabbit excrement, etc.  But could also have been related to a recurrence of a "mast cell tumor" which was removed.  
But my handsome boy has good test results and this is him coming running when I mentioned the word...."cookie".

Hope your evening is as good as mine will be tonight knowing my Ben is okay.  Sure was lucky to adopt such a loving dog at the age of 3 years 7 months almost 5 years ago.  Love ya Ben.
