Embark Things

 When Cora got her swab done we had to activate her kit online.  Thus we ran across Poppy and Lucy's results.  We went clicking through and found something interesting.  Lucy was at risk of Interverebral Disc Disease. We had some idea of what it was but didn't think much of it.  She never had back issues, only knee issues.  But now hindsight is 20/20 and well yeah....embark was right one good fall and her disk ruptured causing her to go lame. If I didn't have faith in dog DNA tests I sure do now.  Poppy has one copy of one gene for degenerative myelopothy.  Which means she is a carrier but not necessarily at risk.  But its good she is out of the breeding pool.  Im dying to get Coras results back now.
