“For any dog lover coping with any type of diagnosis, it’s a huge issue to take on,” Williams said. “It is really difficult watching him go through surgery after surgery and to think he has gotten better when a new lump appears. It is never fun bringing Petey to the vet, but he deserves a million gold stars for being a trooper.”
