Ginger is my shepherd yellow lab mix. She is 12 and has been a certified therapy dog for 5 1/2 years with hundreds of hours of visits. She retired this year because her rearleg strength has been steadily deteriorating noticeably over the past nine months due to degenerative myelopathy (equivalent to multiple sclerosis). It’s sad to see this coming on. I know this isn’t reasonable to think but the people who she visited throughout the years to chear up don’t know her plight.She’s struggling but just a couple of people know of it. I pray for strength in myself everyday and a miracle for her.
