It's not just about the dog itself, but the relationship you have with it!

Dedicated to Bart, who had the Most Beautiful Tail

"It's very simple. Dogs and cats and other talented animals have tails; their tails, with their thousands of flourishes, provide them with a wonderfully complex language of arabesques, not only for what they think and feel and suffer, but for every mood and vibration in their feeling tone. We have no tails, and since the more lively among us need some form of expression, we make ourselves paintbrushes and pianos and violins..."

Sage - DM Test Result

While I'd like it to have been "normal," I'll certainly take this result over the other alternative!

N/N is most important when it's a dog that will be used for breeding -- but this test is new, so we must be grateful for our companions that we know will not develop DM symptoms. I'm glad for you and for Sage!

Yes. I am very thankful that he's not affected!

And I'm fascinated to keep tracing it. We can do some more testing to trace it a couple of generations up now.

I'm glad to hear Sage isn't 'at risk'! Thanks for testing!

Well, we have a suspect where we think it comes from but will test both Wally and Hannah, and either Alice and/or Phoebe...or both, depending on results. I won't test Iris yet (when she's old enough to breed) unless both parents are carriers.
