Yesterday I spent pretty much the entire day at the vet so Leo could have surgery to remove three benign growths on his body. Two were on his chest (turns out they were just fatty deposits, thank goodness), one in his right ear, and he's actually got a fourth lump on his shoulder that we decided didn't have to go since it was aspirated and said to be fine. While he was under, he also got his teeth cleaned, so he's got quite a bright smile. He's now back to his bright-eyed bushy-tailed self. Anyway, the lump removed from his right ear required a tight stitching since there's not a whole lot of skin to work with in there, so for now, and who knows, maybe forever, he's got one "special" ear. I'll admit, the possibility of it healing that way bothered me at first, because he has perfect textbook Pug ears, but the more I look at him, the more endearing his upturned ear becomes. He's a charming little guy, isn't he? If anyone can pull off fancy ears, it's him.
