Talking Martha's health testing & CHIC

Martha had an appointment for her hip testing on her birthday, Aug 24 (a Friday), but the veterinarian had an emergency and asked to wait until the next business day (Monday).

I was starting to get a little nervous, because it is almost two months since that test and we just finally got the certificate for that and her CHIC number. Melissa had taken both of her dogs in on that same Friday we were scheduled for our tests, and she got her results very fast. I guess we got lost in the shuffle.

At any rate, the delay was worth the while because she passed with flying colors and also got her CHIC number today.

Here are the results and a link to the official data:

Havanasilk's It's A Good Thing "Martha"
HV-4478 - CERF - Normal
HAV-PA1493 - PATELLA - Normal
HAV-BR2063 - BAER Hearing Test - Normal
HAV-CA571 - CARDIAC - Normal (verified by a cardiologist)
HAV-1272G24F - HIPS - Good (yea!)
HAV-EL585F24 - ELBOW - Normal

We are going to update her CERF exam in the next few weeks, but everything looks great. She was such a great nursemaid to Tinky's puppies that now we can look forward to motherhood for her in the near future.

Its too bad there isn't a category at OFA for "sweetie pie". Martha would certainly pass that with flying colors too! When I'm over at your house, Martha is always the first to hop up on the sofa and smother me with kisses!

Congratulations to Kimberly and Martha! I'm sure that she will be excited to mother her own puppies instead of being surrogate mother to Tinky's litter.
