Well we woke up this morning and our 8 month old GSD was dead. We were absolutely heart broken. I had an autopsy done and it turns out she had a birth defect. Her stomic was actually going through her liver. The vet said it was like a 1 in a million thing. ANd he said if we would have known it, there would still be nothing that could be done. I am just thankful she was able to have a happy life with us. My wife found her this morning and she came running in the bedroom saying Lady (my dog) is dead Lady is dead...I thought she was saying the baby is dead (my wife is pregnant) SO i was REALLY freaking out at first...and then i heard her say Lady...and of course that is better in comparison but I was still totally heart broken...just wanted to let you guys know.
