Somehow I knew we wouldn't escape...hubby took the pups to the health clinic last Sunday (I was out of town) and Shelby at 2 years old has a grade 1-2 heart murmur. I've just read through the posts on mvd and it sounds encouraging. So many of you have such encouraging stories. We will see Dr. Herndon (major hottie cardiologist ) a week from Tuesday to determine if this is a new murmur or heart disease. I just knew I wouldn't escape this but the stories I've read have been encouraging. We are almost at the 1 year mark from Shelby's knee surgery and Jake cancer and figure we can survive about anything at this point!!
