Comments... Harry also had his hips xrayed at the veterinarian's office at 10mths of age and they had no defect.

This dog was such a joy to have experienced, his loss left us devastated and lost. I have never in my life met a more joyful animal that loved life as Harry did. Our hearts broke into a million pieces the day he left us. His breeder is my best friend and this loss touched many lives. Our vet could offer no explanation for his death, Sudden Death Syndrome or arrythmias are suspected.
