    Thank you so much. She was everything to us for the last 11 years. It was crazy, she was the most agile dog ever. She started losing her agility around Christmas, and we figured she was just getting older. Then one of her feet started to knuckle and she was losing the ability to stand correctly. I was so sure it was arthritis. When I took her to the vet, they announced she has had this disease all her life, but now it is showing up and she would be paraplegic in 6 months. Well, the disease did get so aggressive, we got her to the 8 month stage and then we had to let her go. It was so sad to see her go, but all I can see it was somewhat of a relief. I couldn't stand for her to lead a life not jumping. That was her world and when she had no use of her legs, she had to be so depressed as we're we.
    So, now we have adopted a 5 mo old choc lab. She is so loving, and pretty much completely opposite behavior we had in our Haley. It's weird having another, but at the same time, it brings so much joy. We constantly compare her to Haley, in which she is totally opposite of her. Our hearts have been warmed by this new little pup.
