Hi guys,
Well, last night I was getting our family all set to leave on our vacation to Mexico. Everyone was in bed except Coal and I and as I folded laundry he layed by me on the living room floor. Well, when I was done with the folding I started petting Coal (he was pretty neglected yesterday as I have been going nuts getting us all ready to leave today). Well, he rolls over for his tummy rubs and I see he has a golfball sized swelling maybe 2 inches above his neutering surgery site. I freaked when I saw it! I pushed on it a little and at first it felt very solid which REALLY freaked me out but then as I felt it, it just kind of sunk back into his body. Is this a hernia? I am taking him to the vet at 9:20 to get a quick look from the dr. and see if it is something that can wait or that needs immediate attention. Has anyone had this happen with their dogs? Wish us luck at the vet!!!

Ok guys, false alarm! Coal is fine. The vet says what I felt was fluid in the bulbo-urethral glands (not sure of that spelling). Wish I knew about that before I freaked out last night!!! Anyway, just thought I'd fill y'all in. Linda, thanks for being there when I needed you! I guess what you were describing was just what Coal had! Well I can now go to Mexico without worrying that something terrible is wrong with him and kindly my vet did not charge for the quick look!! See y'all in about 9 days.
