  1. Phabulous Phoebee Is DM Phree

    August 28, 2009 by myeye

    As many of you know, Chase is clear for Degenerative Myelopathy.  Phoebe’s test results came back today and she also is DM clear.  So, that means none of the puppies in their litter will carry the DM gene mutation.  I’m kind of a health nut, so am delighted that we will not pass on this sad disease through this breeding.

    Phoebe has been vet-cleared for take-off tomorrow.  I’ll be at the Albuquerque airphield tomorrow night to pherry her to my house.  We will pheed her dinner and then begin the tummy rubs.  This is phantastic!

    That sound was really close, but the dogs were just sitting by the French doors completely unconcerned.   Finally, I heard a voice say, “Sheesh!”  Ah hah!  It was my neighbor, owner of the abundant apple tree, picking up the crop on his side of the fence.  The dogs know all the people who live in the adjoining homes so do not bark when they are out in the yard.  Since the fence around the yard is 6′ high, I cannot see whether Melvin has more apples to clean up than do I.  Since I have only one branch overhanging the patio and dumping a bushel a day, I suspect his clean-up is a full time job.  I can’t say anything unpleasant about the fruit because my dogs have enjoyed this year’s crop immensely.
