She's only 5. So far she's had a tumor on her foot, developed an allergy to fleas, has become prone to hot spots, almost needs to be sedated to bathe, and in the last few months has decided she doesn't want to join in on the daily walk. I've come to the realization that even though her parents were registered she is a bad breeding result. We may already need to make the switch to house dog already. They have great dog houses (double walled and insulated) but she was pretty stiff looking today so I think the cold is getting to her. I'm bummed.
