Ahh, my sister-in-law has that and some other bone disease. Nasty stuff! She was and is too terrified to even try to have children because of the genetics and her sister, who did have children.
Sorry to hear that . I bet your border collie is a great help! My guys aren't official service dogs, but they are clever and I've taught them to help me alot with my own disabilities.

Hi Amy and welcome! I love all your pictures ... and paprika looks so sweet. Can't wait to hear some stories about paprika. At the hospitals where I do my "clinical" practice, there are some pet therapy dogs that come to visit the patients. They really help the people tremendously! I'm sure you have lots of stories to tell us about paprika. Anyway, welcome again and I'm sure you'll love it here.

yes i have tons of stories paprika is amazing she has saved my life on many occasions and just recently when i broke my ankel she went and got help with out her who knows how long i would have laid in the snow / rain . she is great many people that said they hate dogs just love paprika . she loves every one but esspically kids she knows the differences in people some people she knows that they do not like to play and will just curl up next to them and lay her head on their lap and let them pet her . but she knows some love to play and will play with them and be as gentle as anything esspically with the little kids she is great i love her so much .
