we got a 3 year old chocolate lab last September from down south. he got into my wife's sewing basket and i was afraid he ate something that might harm him. i took him to the vet for an x-ray and they didn't exactly find what I was expecting. Looks like someone took a shot at him with a pellet gun. We are awaiting a diagnosis from Tufts on whether or not to remove. I am thinking I will have it removed regardless of what they say since it is lead. the white mass below he pellet is his heart.
