DARREN & PHILLIP

Lots of you may have seen our story this afternoon we took Philly to the vet with some suspicious lumps that popped up on his back in the last week. The vet has said that he's 99% sure they are cancer. Most likely mast cell tumours. We are devastated. The vet does think that if we cut them out there's every chance that Philly will be cancer free and totally fine. But we need to wait to send the lumps away so they can tell more about what's in them and the chance of it being through his body. The operation is currently booked for next Monday but we are going to bring it forward because I don't think I can deal with the agony of waiting a week. I feel that Philly is still very happy and not worried at all by the lumps. He's still guzzling down his dinner and pulling his usual food stealing tricks. I am confident he will be ok but it's tough to hear that he may have cancer in his body even after cutting the lumps out. My baby boy is only 5 so surely this isn't it for him. Any way, I just wanted to let you guys know that my little man is going in for a big operation and to say a little wish for him. ❤️
We are working through the day and night lately to get all of your leads and collars, match your dog hoodies and match your dog pjs to you by Christmas, and this won't change. Our @darrenandphillip customers are so incredibly important to us and we are doing absolutely everything we can to make you happy.
But I just want to say that with the pressure of the workload and feeling that my baby is sick I may just need to take a very very small breather from the wonderful land of social media. I've never done this before and I love being here but I have to admit I am feeling like I need it. Next week, on Tuesday, I will be hosting a huge fundraiser on our Facebook page. We are going to try do something super huge for our rescues just before Christmas. So we will still be here trying to organise that but I just may not be posting silly happy pics of the boys for now or replying to as many DM's which I'm very sorry about. If you've ordered anything at all from @darrenandphillip we promise you we will still be doing everything we can to get your order to you by Christmas. ❤️

@rosestar888

Super happy his in full health !

@the40ftdader

I hope for the best. Your two pups are awesome! I just put my blue nose to sleep after nine short years. She had similar mass cell tumors for 4 years. In the end she developed a tumor on her bottom lip that got removed but with in a week her liver failed. We couldnt determine weather or not the mass cells spread or the new tumor was the cause because her cloting levels were dangerous. I had to put her to sleep on nov 22. The hardest thing I've ever had to do. Cancer is a motherfucker. People enjoy your two boys including me so I wish you the best and look forward to many more years of cutness.

@rufuslunchbox

I'm sooo glad to hear you're ok Philly! What a relief for you and your family, and the best Christmas wish you could hope for 💖💖 Make sure to hug your fam extra tight this week you gorgeous, snuggly Phill-munchkin! 😍😍

@sophieleane
