I hope little Baxter will be OK. They can get fatty lumps which are nothing to worry about - usually happens in older dogs. Cassie had quite a few of them.

Let us know how he gets on.

Is it in the vaccination area and has Baxter had a jab recently ? Joly had a little lump appaear when he had his second puppy jab. One of my springers developed several fatty lumps during her life and Izzy had one on his forehead. Another reason for a lump to form is an insect bite or something caught in the skin.

It's probably nothing, as Baxter is a young dog but have it checked if it doesn't go in a few days. My old vet used to say that a good guideline for doggy lumps was that one you can feel separate and not appearing to have 'roots' was usually something trivial.

Oh no way! Poor you, I dont think it will do much damage, I think if its the other way around it will wreck the car, I think you will just have to drain it :xfngr:
