Cara (BRAT) and Arwen (breeder) results

Trying to give myself the same pep talk I would anyone. It really isn't that bad, just would have loved probable CLEAR for more ease of mind. But heck, even clear, you keep testing so not really a big deal, right? Sigh.

As some may recall, the puppymiller responsible for the Wimauma pack has been a thorn for a decade. The good side of that was that until this year, not one dog from him had been reported to have Fanconi. Then a relatively young one (about 3 yrs old) was dx recently. The pep talk side is, for crying out loud, did anyone REALLY think none of the dogs were carriers and that it would never occur?

So by now you guessed… Cara is probable carrier. And Arwen is probable clear.

Feel free to share the results on any list. Relatives of Arwen should know. Since the breeder never sent her reg papers she is in data base, they won't find her with regular AKC and OFA checking.

Yes, it could be worse, so Carrier is better then Affected….. and you are right, it is really NOT that bad!

In regards to Arwen, even if her papers were not sent in, you listed her (what would be registered name/sire/dam) for the data base, right? So the only thing that is missing is the AKC number. Honestly, most time I seach by the name or part of the name.
