Thank God for your support. I just got off the phone with the doctor. It turns out she does have a mass in her throat, which they will take a sample in the coming hours and then ship it out for a biopsy. She a tuff little beagle, she suffered much from her original owners, but in the 2 years she is here, she has blossomed and standing up to the other female beagle I have. Daisy is 8 and Bella, my original, is 11.
