Dreyfus now officially has a "good side". The lump on the left side of his jaw is big enough that it is clearly visible... no scratching needed. He is still behaving fine, though... He wants to play fetch / enjoys his walks, can't get enough food, etc..

I had to drive to NJ and back for work today, so I knew I would be gone for ~12 hours. I arranged to have GP come over to let Dreyfus out for a peepee, but thankfully the trip to NJ went fast (I've been known to break the speed limit :-)), and I got back in time to let Dreyfus out myself. When I walked in the door, I could see the lump on his jaw from several feet away. I called Dr. K's office immediately, but he said to give yesterday's drugs a while to work.

I'm not trying to sound alarmist in my entries from yesterday/today, but long-time readers of this blog know that Dreyfus is sick. The blog is titled "The Life of Dreyfus", so I gotta keep it real. While his situation is troubling, I've had five months to come to grips with things, and I know that he is on borrowed time. Last September was a nightmare for me, but now... I'm prepared for whatever.
