I actually just spoke to her regular doctor- he called to answer some additional questions I had. I posted a new threat about hip dysplacia at
I had misunderstood about her possible surgery. She can have both hips done - just not at the same time (obviously). This changes her outlook completely. Still terribly unfortunate, but we are willing to do anything to give her a great life. If she has pain, we will deal with it. If she needs surgery - it is hers. If the qaulity of life has ceased to be good, we will not be selfish.
Whatever she needs - it is hers.
I've attached a picture of our wonderful Gummy - taken a week before her pain started. She is just such an sweet and awesome little dog. We love her so much.
