Norma Edgewater, MD 12/27/2011 1:38:17 PM Update on my comment in 2010. Today is Dec. 27, 2011 - Harry, our OESheepdog, was diagnosed with bone cancer in his front paw and passed on Thansgiving, 2010. (he was 11/1/2). Dory is now 15 , soon to be 15 1/2 next month and her baby, Paddles is now 11. Dory is deaf but reads signals (glad we taught her when she was a pup) and has a skin infection we have been treating since August - we have been told by several Vets that it is her immune system wearing down and the skin infection is a bacteria. With several blood tests, she has an underactive thyroid which is being treated now. Both Potugese Water dogs still play and romp like they are puppies and enjoy their walks. Would love to hear from anyone with aging PWD's!
