This past month we found out that Sadie has renal dysplasia. Basically, in about a year or two (hopefully longer!) she will go into kidney failure and we will lose her. It still feels unreal. We just lost Shakespeare 5 months ago and now we are dealing with the thoughts of losing Sadie.
I am so angry at my old vet for not catching this either. I am sad because I had been at this vet for 13 years, but I knew something was very wrong with my baby and I wasn't going to rest until I found out. My old vet told me there was nothing wrong, even though some of her urine and blood results were off the charts! So glad I got a second opinion!
We are making the most of our limited time together and treating her like nothing was wrong. She is not getting away with anything in this house just because! lol. We have started basic training with her and although she really wants to stop and play with the other dogs, or anyone that gets close to her, she is doing very well. She was well behaved before we began, but hopefully when we are done, we will be able to walk her properly on leash!
She's such a doll. I can't stand the thought of losing her.
