Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

It is hard to know without seeing this or being able to feel it but they can get benign skin tumors that will appear like a pouch or a cyst that has filled with fluid. If it is small and Pee Wee is older, then it is probably a skin tumor that your vet can easily remove under a local anesthesia. Can you send me a picture of this? That would help me be able to give you more information. Thanks!!

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.

Sincerely, ***** *****
