Japanese Chin Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 4/25/2006
I bought a small puppy (6 months old) 2 weeks ago, and now just noticed a small red lump on his belly. The size of it is about 75% of your fingertip. I have spoken to the breeder and she is quite sure that from looking at the photo, its just a protuding navel (umbilical hernia) - which is common for a Japanese Chin. She said there is nothing to worry about. What do you think?
