Oh,oh,oh! I'm so happy you are "biting the bullet"!
I totally get what you mean about doing a "repeat" of maladies! But take it from someone that hasn't got a worry in the world with little Rocket...not having the worry doesn't make it "perfect" either. After 12 years of worrying about mobility and now having a dog that can spring 5 feet in the air without effort, I still conjure up problems in my head!
Maybe Shanna we are the types that need a small malady with our little ones? Just sayin'....
I'm beaming with happiness for you guys!
Comet - 1999 to 2011
She departed us unexpectedly January 23, 2011 at the age of 12 1/2.
She was born with a deformed front leg and a tripawd all of her life.

I do have to admit, life with Duke is pretty routine. He is the least demanding animal I've ever seen. After having every moment dictated by Trouble for 12 years, I still can't get used to having to remember all the essential things - taking him out and feeding. I swear he would pop and starve before he would ask to go out or be fed.
Shanna & Spirit Trouble ~ Trouble gained her wings 3/16/2011, a 27 1/2 month cancer survivor, tail wagging. RIP sweetheart, you are my heart and soul. Run free at Rainbow Bridge.
The November Five - Spirits Max, Cherry, Tika, Trouble & Nova. 11/2008 - 3/2013 An era ends as Queen Nova crossed the Bridge.
Be prepared for changes. After losing Skyler and only having Chloe - our lives were so easy, as she Chloe was very easy to care for. Now that she is gone, and we now have Peyton & Darby...not so much. Life is hectic, but I wouldn't change a thing (except maybe pull their razor sharp teeth out so they don't cut me anymore). Be sure to post some pics of Emmi.
