I have a 1 yr. old male yorkie. He gets a knot or bump just under his rectum from time to time. It comes and goes and can be hard or soft. It doesn't seem to cause him any pain, I just don't know what it is. Does anyone have any idea?

Could be an anal gland, they generally are not sore unless they get impacted, and if he has nice firm poop, that usually empties it when needed. Since e is not bothered by it I would just ask the vet next time you are there (you can show him the exact spot), to be sure, but if it bothers him, take him on in.
