Hi,

I'm Kim and I have inherited my pup -- he's really my granddog -- His mother, my daughter is a recent college graduate, been working hard, and has little time to take care of him -- Sunny or Sonny as we have yet to distinguish is truly a family pet now.

I love him anyway.

they sound like adorable dogs. I hope Max is going to be okay.

When I said Puff bosses Max, she's playing with him and, yea, harrassing him. Max doesn't care. He's so easy going. Max really doesn't seem like he has an illness. He's very lively and playful and seems absolutely normal except for those 3 new lumps.

Max and Puff have to get together every week to play--They have to!! Kenny and I both notice that after about 2 days apart the dogs start to act bored, so we get them together about every 3-4 days. I'll keep Max at my house for 2-3 days, then he'll go to home to rest but he's ready to come back about 3 days later. It's just funny to see a 10-pound white ball of fluff steal every toy the big 100-pound Max gets, but then Max was trained to retrieve ducks so he never clamps down hard on anything. Besides, Max is a love bully--You could not pet that dog enough if you were to pet him 24 hours a day. If there's any petting going on, you can bet he's going to nose his way to the front.

We had a similiar situation when Badi got sick we constantly had to keep Hobo from harassing him. Charlie really got on top of that. It started to feel cruel because Badi could hardly defend himself. Then Badi died and now Hobo harasses us.

Hi Betsy --
What a sweet kid is Puff! And I'm sure he's the boss of you - as it should be.

I truly hope you are wrong about Max also..... It's a stressful time for you all, I know. Please visit here frequently and let us support you through this.

Do Puff and Max get along? Puff may prove to be a great comfort to Max..... who knows??

Thinking of you.....and again, welcome to the team.
My 'owner' is a 10 year old chubby doxie who thinks the sun rises and sets by her command!!
(she's also a cuddlebunny......)

Hugs.
Libby emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi all, I just knew there'd be a group for dog lovers and here you are, so here am I. My name is Betsy and I'm a 40-something with an almost 2-year-old Bichon Frise named Puff who thinks she's the boss of me. I'm also the "mom" of a 10-year-old golden retriever named Max. He's actually my boyfriend's dog, but I've been his mom for the last 7 years. Puff loves, loves, loves to boss Max. Unfortunately, Max had a cancerous tumor removed about 6 weeks ago and now there are 3 more growths in the same area. We're waiting to find out a more definitive diagnosis and staging, but I have a strong feeling it's an agressive mast cell tumor. I'm often wrong. I certainly hope I am again.
