It's heartbreaking. Even worse, for this breed it has become predictable. Every owner of this breed knows there is a good chance that there's a time bomb in the family dog.
Dogs chose to join us tens of thousands of years ago in a most remarkable partnership. Dogs truly are God's gift to mankind. If not for them, the trajectory of civilization would be very different. And what would we be without dogs as our best friends? What would your life be like without dogs?
Only the breeders can fix this. Enough already. Get it done.
