DEGENERATIVE MYELOPATHY

We started seeing symptoms of DM in January, 2006 and knew the horrible countdown had begin.  Dozer’s left hind leg wasn’t acting right and he started scraping and knucking and soon we realized he had DM.  Eventually he began scraping and knuckling with his right rear leg too.  Toward the end of the year he would fishtail around and bang into things because his lower half no longer worked.  He was having difficulty doing even minor doggie basics and we made a  hard decision for us but the right one for him.  Fortunately he wasn’t in physical pain.  Dozer made a valiant effort to chase one last squirrel out of our yard on a Monday and gently played with Kayla.  We put him down on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 and we miss him every single day.

KNUCKLING OVER
