Our Golden Retriever, Tiberius ( or just Ty for short), is back home today after a major surgery yesterday. The doctors removed a large tumor like mass from his abdominal area. It was near the aorta so the procedure was high risk. Ty came through very well after a three hour surgery.

We picked Ty up from the animal hospital this morning and he looked a lot more chipper and spry than I would have thought. His recovery is 10-14 days and he gets to wear the Elizabethan Collar until the stitches are removed. We will get the biopsy report on the tumor in about five days and we are hoping that it is not cancerous. The fact that the surgeons did not find any other tumors is a positive sign.
