Sierra is my 8y7m old Harlequin Great Dane. She received a rule-out diagnosis of Degenerative Myelopathy (DM) on Saturday 5/30/09.

She had been having symptoms for the last three months.

I am an occupational therapist and have been researching canine rehabilitation since learning of her diagnosis. I feel that I have a lot to offer my girl Sierra as well as others going though a rehabilitation with their pet. DM is degenerative as the name suggests- she will not recover from this- it will take her life eventually, but it’s what we do between now and then that will matter most for her.

Sierra has had a full life. She has traveled many places with her people, she’s hiked, swam and ran alongside my horses when I rode. She has many people who love her.

Here she is at Christmas time with her little brother, a chinese crested, Poe.

  1. yes,the Chinese Crested is a great dog breed,if you are deciding whether a Chinese crested puppy would be the perfect pet companion for you, perhaps because you saw one on television and liked it, take the necessary amount of time to research the Chinese crested breed. A variety of resources are available to help you learn everything you need to know about raising a Chinese crested puppy and the breed in general.
