I think you are doing the right thing for you and for Dragon by having the surgery done to see exactly what is going on.
I have one awesome Doberman that I love to pieces and he is my best friend, my comfort and joy as he is such wonderful therapy for me. He is just 3 years old and so full of himself. He has my hubby and I both wrapped around his paw.
We have also had to put our 2 previous Dobermans to sleep once we realized their qualtity of life was severely affected by their medical conditions. One was 11 years old and the other 13 years old. They were grandmother and granddaughter and we had both of them living with us. They died with in 2 years of each other.
I wish you peace,
