  1. As for the spots on her front legs..we simply call those *naughty* spots! Those are normal as well. Most with white legs get these spots, better know as *ticking* don't worry about them.
  2. Oh, I am so so sorry..you can feel the love/loss in the tribute. I'm so sorry.
  3. It's only money well spent if the data is valid, published and peer reviewed. Otherwise, it's just blind faith, an open wallet, and one company with total control.

  5. GentleLake, my condolences to you and your family..
  6. Hey Mike, I know everyone is a volunteer. If they don't want to answer questions that's fine, I understand. However, when information given from one party completely contradicts the other, folks begin to wonder. Mark shared above that they shared confidential details, that's good to know, and had I not asked I wouldn't have known. Do I need to know, hard to say, to be told not to ask when I too contributed..won't happen again here on these boards.
  7. Ok, how does something from 2012 relate to what is now being told to people? The test is available. So, did they share with the HEF their data - for this test?
  8. Has the univ of Finland group shared their data yet?
  9. Is the gene involved, and the 4 markers different than what ProjectDog determined years ago?
  10. Were they sent any samples of normal dogs though? Or as normal as can be determined via BAER testing and knowing they were not related to any known pedigree of affected..Just wondering if the figure is skewed based on what they had to begin with.
  11. " The other is the rate of penetrance -- what percentage of our dogs who are carrying two copies of the variant mutation actually suffer early hearing loss?" How do we find this out? Are there any in the research that BAER tested normal yet per their results should be at risk?
  12. How did they determine a 35% carrier rate? I'm having a hard time understanding or figuring out where they got this number.
  13. Thank you Eileen...not even sure where to begin with questions but truly appreciate the statement and information..
