So throughout Luka's life I have always been in contact with his breeder by email, trying to find out what this could be. She has always suggested something else PSOM etc. when I said we were testing for SM, her response was it takes an MRI to confirm it, making it sound like just because it is expensive procedure we shouldn't do it.
Anyway a couple of days ago I sent her a copy of Luka's discharge paperwork so she could have proof that she has at least bred 1 dog with this disease and this was the charming response I received:
"We were very upset and hurt that you chose not to tell us about Luka’s medical problems, which he has probably suffered from for many months, until you could accuse us of being cold and unsympathetic."

You're welcome, and thank you for not even offering a single ounce of sympathy or condolences. It makes ceasing to recommend you as a breeder such an easy decision. Trust me all of Greater Washington will know that this is the type of breeder you are. Seriously.

Thank you for the paperwork. I will be sure to put it in his mother’s file.
Mind, I have been emailing her regarding his condition for the past to years asking what it could be and she has said everything but SM. I am so frustrated, I took Luka to 5 different vets to get some help, and it wasn't cheap and I didn't care I made the sacrifices and my fiancee made the sacrifices.
I am shocked she had nerve to write that to me.
