People have asked about Thorn. Some of you know that he was diagnosed about a month ago with Degenerative Myelopathy. This is a disease that is mainly breed specific to German Shepherds. It leads to paralysis in the hind legs and is untreatable. I started noticing a difference a few months ago where he had a slight drag of his back right foot. I was hoping that it was something temporary... He is only 7 and my heart breaks at the thought of something like this happening to him. We are on a regimen from our vet, which includes lots and lots of exercise to keep his muscles strong. We always walked every day at our county parks, which we love, but now we walk with more determination. The progression of the disease varies from dog to dog and he won't be in any pain. So our only hope is that he continues to do well with only minor problems. We will enjoy every day we have with him. I love him so much. Thank you for letting me share this about my little family.
