    Yes, I guess it's time to add another page to the cavalierhealth.org website, too.

    I find that happens to me a lot too–I forget that I've already added things in!

    I've requested the swab kit and will be submitting Shelby's DNA. Hope it helps research.

    I was a little late sending the email but heard back from Rob Mason. He said they have received 50 but would accept one more in an effort to identify as many carriers as they can.

    *He told me only females can be carriers
    *Males can be affected by MD but symptoms usually appear before age 1.

    Since Elton is 4 and is not a female, he is not of use. He said if I had a female he would be happy to send a kit.

    I am so sorry to hear about Clinton but thankful for what you have done to hopefully help cavaliers in the future
