some of you may know that I've recently cancelled my trip to Southern California while on the road due to an emergency with my dog. what happened is I got a phone call while driving down to Southern California from my girlfriend saying that the dog might need to go into surgery and could possibly have cancer. we had originally taking him in for a swollen toe that we believe was due to trauma from him pawing at the back stairs everyday when he tries to come up them. I came home and we took him in for surgery Monday to have a toe amputated. we found out yesterday that there was a malignant tumor in the toe. we won't have the full biopsy results until Sunday on whether or not they completely remove the cancer but I'm hoping that they did.
