Sorry haven't been around for a while. Hope all are well.

Ollie is now 3 (BMD). I have discovered a lump near to his rib cage left hand side under the skin about the size of half a tennis ball.  He is well at the moment eating and full of beans when getting ready for his morning walk.  He did have sickness 2 weeks ago but the vet said to starve him for 24 hours and see how he went before taking him in he stresses at the vets.  He recovered well and by Sunday was back to his normal self.  He also has a small lump under the skin near to his left armpit. 

He is off to see the vet Saturday but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas I know it is impossible to diagnose over the internet., but I am a little worried.

Thankyou to all of you that replied to my last post re:Any advice please.
Now have Ollie on a harness and he is much happier I can control nearly aswell as with a Halti but he can jump around a little more with the harness.
The tips I need are this when he see's other dogs he either stands and won't budge till they have gone out of sight or sits,and all the advice re; this breed of dog are not to pull and yank,I know this doesn't work and just makes him dig his heels in even more.He does this with Humans too,
He seems to just want to watch what they are doing it can sometimes be frustrating,try to lure with treats but not interested when all this is going on.
He will be 9 months old on the 20th do you think he may outgrow it? Or is this a trait in this breed.I am certainly learning more and more with research and I did plenty before getting Ollie.
Would be interested to know if anyone else has or has had this problem and your solutions.

Hi I am new to this forum and am pleased to of found a board that deals with the breed that I own.
Ollie is a 7 month old BMD and walks well on lead until he sees another dog and cannot contain himself and then pulls like mad,is this normal and will he outgrow it? I have tried headcollars and harnesses but he hates them so now use a comfort collar and training lead clipped around my waist and we are going to start training school next week.You are probably wondering why I have left it so long it was a case of finding the right one,hopefully now we have.

The other thing he does is still mouths us and sometimes adds pressure,he is a lot better than he use to be but again is this normal and will he outgrow it?
Other than those two hings he is gorgeous and he is learning but it seems to be taking its time.Sorry for the long post look forward to your replies.
