Oh My....So sorry I missed it. I just went back and read the report. I feel just awful for them. It is so sad to have 2 affected dogs. I absolutely agree about owners familiarizing themselves with this condition. Had it not been for this site, I would be blissfully unaware of SM, never imaging anything like that could possible be the cause of some of Lily's behavior. While I don't know whether she has it, at least now I will find out. It has taken some of the joy out of being a new puppy and Cav owner, because a week after I got her is when I started noticing some of the odd behavior. Now I just worry what the outcome will be, and if she does have it, what kind of life will she have. BUT.....I would rather know something is wrong with her, and have some of the joy of being a new Mom be lessened, than be blissfully unaware, enjoying my new baby, and then find out much later she was sick, and it maybe be too late to help her.
Nicki....I am so sorry for you and I am glad that TedBear and Rupert have such a great Mom to care for them. I have always heard that God gives special need babies to parents who will give them the best possible life. I do believe this to be true.
