Agree.The hips are fine. I'm also surprised that they got a C rating. They aren't great, but I wouldn't expect them to fail. Seeing that x-ray I would say the rating is radiographic only and the hips are "workable" from an every day standpoint. Nothing there that would limit physical ability or quality of life. Regardless of what the paperwork says, from the standpoint of the dog being able to lead a long, full, active life and the hips not causing any problems they are ok.
