Wow, tonight is the 1 year anniversary of Lexi's disease.

365 days ago we thought we were losing our girl; turned out we were gaining an invalid ;-)

This ordeal has taught us patience, perseverance, and love.

Lexi is thriving, standing on her own, walking outside, and even running every so often. All with our assistance and laughter. She is the sweetest girl ever and we hope to have another wonderful year with her, and another, and another.

Thanks to all that have supported us via email and posts and thoughts and prayers. Your kind wishes have been so very much appreciated.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, puppy kisses to your pets, and hope that you can find a blessing in something unexpected.

Thank you so much for journaling your experience with Lexi. It certainly has given us hope for our Ruth girl. Friday, January 9th, began our journey. We have limited resources for therapy other than what we can provide here at home. Because there is extremely limited information on Coonhound Paralysis, I have also started a blog charting our experiences... challenges... emotional roller coaster ride... http://our-Ruth-girl.blogspot.com. Thank you for taking the time to write your blog! How is Lexi doing now?

My daughter just called with a sick German Shepard, Hugo. He has not been diagnoses with Coonhound, but the symptoms seem very much like this.
Is there something the veterinarians "test" to confirm this diagnosis? I hate to suggest a diagnosis, but would if it was something they'd possibly overlook.
Would they naturally think of this or could it be missed? would it make a difference? Patty
