I had no idea....it would have absolutely killed me to deal with something like that.....I've always loved German Shepherds, but I hear so much about the trouble they have with hip dysplasia I don't think I could handle seeing them suffer....I had a terrible time watching my mother-in-law's gorgeous Rottie/Doberman go downhill with age and struggle just to sit and lie down. I wish dogs could have the same life expectancy as cats. My first lived to be 22. She was blind and almost toothless when she died, but she still had moxie up until the end.
