I need to ask a very important question.
Since you have her on a "breeding" contract,I take it she is being shown and reached her points to Champion?
And she has been health/genetic tested and certified?
Has any bloodwork been done on Roxie?
What has your breeder said about this?I'm sure he/she is concerned about it.
