We have a 4 1/2 year old lab mix named Ruca. I recently noticed a bump on the "bridge" of her nose. At first, I questioned whether or not the bump had always been there, because it is quite subtle. But it's been a couple of days, and I keep noticing it, which leads me to believe it has not been there all along! I even looked in pictures to see if the bump was always there, but I can't really tell. Very strange.
Ruca has also been moving a little more slowly after she's been laying down for a while... Takes her a minute to get up and moving, and stretching a lot more, even just randomly throughout the day. I don't know if these things could be connected, but I thought I'd mention it... She seems pretty young to be experiencing joint stiffness like this.
I found some pictures on an old forum that resemble her bump, although the one in this picture is a little more extreme. But on this forum, the verdict is a bee sting... It's winter here in Ohio, so that isn't a possibility. Here is the link:
Unfortunately, my computer won't allow me to upload photos for some reason, so this is the best I've got.
Anyone have any ideas? Intelligent and thoughtful answers only, please.
