Old Man Tucker

It's official.  The Tucker is middle aged.  
I had to goes to the vet to have my old man bump removed.  No worries it was only a skin-tag but it was continuing to grow.  You can even see it here on my front leg (in the middle of my heart tattoo)
 At the Vet I gots shotted wif a tranquilizer dart - then 45 min later I let them give me a numbing shot on my leg (cause I was tired and muzzled) and they burned the sucker off.

Now it looks like someone used me as an ashtray... Hmph... 
Momma chose to have my bump removed because although it causes no health concern if it continued to grow it may have required anesthesia for removal. The hoomans avoid anesthesia as much as possible for us fur babies. 

But the Tucker is aging... See my graying face!
 Here I am in March 2009 all handsome as a puppy.....

 2010... still handsome
 Hmmm... still handsome in 2011
and 2012.... with the gray just starting
 But, you're only as old as you feel!  And me?  The Tucker is never too old for games!

  11. You are still a young pup, Mr Tucker! You are just graying prematurely!


  12. Oh Tucker! Wait till you're my age!! ;-) Then you'll see how many lumps & bumps and saggy bits you've got - hee! hee!

    Actually, I also had a similar skin tag taken off recently too. Mine was growing into a huge, ugly wart!! I got a numbing injection on my leg too but I didn't get the benefit of any Chill Out drugs like you did - they just burnt it off while I was standing up!!

    You sounded very brave, though, and we loved your photos! :-)
