Re: Kuryakyn Run Like the Wind My Baby Boy
I'm unsure as to where to post this, maybe it needs to be moved.
This is what was Küry's Diagnosis: Severe Hip Dysplasia with advanced DJD (degenerative joint disease). Changes affecting both femoral heads and acetabulums. He would of had no quality of life and was not a canidate for any of the hip replacement surgeries.
When he hurt himself that Sunday afternoon he had torn the ligaments that hold the leg in place.
My DH had a meeting with our vets on Tuesday, we needed to know more. There was some comfort in that. We've never questioned a decision to euthanize before but did this time. There are no longer any questions.
We are awaiting the full report that has been faxed to the breeder.
By a strange turn of events I located his sister and brother. They belong to another Breeder. One was x-rayed this week and is also affected only not as severly. The other will be x-rayed this Monday. It was most difficult to look at thier pictures, they look just like Küry. Such beautiful dogs and such a waste IMPO.
Kury's Dam will not be bred again nor will her sister. The two siblings will not be bred either. With that being said, we feel that Küry will not have totally died in vain and no others will suffer the same fate, at least in this situation.
Thank you all once again for your kind words and thoughts. Thought perhaps someone might want to know exactly what happened as I was a bit out of it when the original post was made.
Küry was loved, never wanted for a thing and left huge paw prints on our hearts for such a young one. He was the most intelligent, loving, comical dog we've ever had. He will be sadly missed for all the rest of our days. He was quite the boy.
