Oh Gosh- I knew that. I'm a nurse, so diabetes is the first thing that pops to mind when I see DM. Thanks, but I have read about that, and I'm so sorry. Petie is thirteen, and from a good kennel. But Elliott, bless him, is a puppy mill rescue. So God only knows his genetics. Best of luck to you.
Thank you for the information on DM. I had a feeling that was what you were talking about. I do worry, because as you probably know, they love jumpingn from the beds or couch. Every time I see them do that I cringe and think they are going to pay for that later in life.
Was Patton your first corgi? My daughter is the one that talked me into getting Dingo 5 years ago while I was going through a break up. They are AWESOME dogs. Mimi is so different than Dingo in personality, but they are both loyal, loving and for small dogs, they sure act like tough guys.
I love your idea of the mobile vet van. I'm sure that helps so many people who would have a hard time getting out themselves and less stressful for the aniamal also.
Anyway, can't wait to see more pictures of Patton. I was trying to get pictures of them swimming with me, but that didn't work out so well that day.
