Merlin is a Pembroke welsh corgi with DM (degenerative myelopathy) and this blog is a chronicle of his journey through this disease.
After speaking with a lady today who wanted a DM clear or carrier puppy and she told me her corgi was on one of the websites in her wheels, I tried to find it. I ended up on Merlin's blog and read through it with tears streaming down my face as I have lived with several DM corgis even before they new what DM was. I started early with Dr. Coates testing and was thrilled when they found the marker. At that point I vowed to breed it out of my line and still maintain the quality of dogs I have had for years. I am known as a kook and phanatic among the breeders in washinton, but I am not breeding for just a showdog, I want a healthy,(not just DM)that I can be proud to say I bred even if it does not win at shows. Keep up the good work, and I am going to purchase your book as soon as I can so that I can try to educate more people.Barb EvansEVANWHIT CORGIS
