I don't blame you for being angry. I know my Abbey came from a place like you are saying and I was stupid but you know what her neuro told me I saved her and we did. Abbey had a hard life dealing with sm BUT she had a very good life. She was our daughter and we loved her so much and she knew how much she was loved. After I figured out that she had sm (you might read our blog to read ou story) I sometimes thought of her as my handicapped child as she was misdiagnosed for 5 years and had neuro damage that would never be reversed. I wouldn't trade one day with her. I was hooked and very much in love the first day I got Abbey. She had a seizure approximately two weeks after we got her and the "I can't call these people breeder" would have taken her back. I couldn't bring her back. If my two-legged children had this disease would I bring them back?
These dogs are so loving and sm is a horrible disease BUT just cheerish every day you have and you wll never ever be sorry for bringing her to your home.
