Just got back from the Duluth, MN dog show. Probably the primary reason we go is because they have a heart clinic there every year and it's where we have our hearts done. Dr. Tobias, the cardiologist from the U of Minnesota, has been there every year for about as long as I can remember. At any rate, we brought 10 of our 12 dogs (12..... that's another story ;) ) and EVERY one came up clear!!!

We are happy beyond words. While we expected the younger ones (6 to 7 months) to be clear, we really thought the odds would catch up with us. I mean, we have been luckier than I could ever hope for. I know at some point the odds will catch up with us, but for now, we are celebrating!! This is better than all the ribbons in that whole show.

Wow, what great heart health in your gang!! You must be so delighted -- that's just the best news to hear, isn't it? It must be nerve-wracking at the moment they are being done as you wait for the verdict!

Wonderful, Bruce. :D
