Tatum is our special little girl, her nick name is "Watta Dog" (as in What A Dog) anyone who knows us well would know why. She will not make it into the ring, but Watta is still a very important member of our family.
Tatum was born with a congenital defect (which is not heriditary in Boxers) called Mega Esophageus (M.E.) which means her Esophageus (the tube that takes the food from the mouth to the stomach) doesn't work normally. Normally there are muscles in the Esophageus to transport the food down to the stomach, in Tatums case these muscles are absent and gravity takes the food down to her stomach.
We were very fortunate to find an email list for dealing with this condition in dogs which helped us to find the best way to cope with her problem. After many sleepless nights during the first 4 months of her life we finally found a food combination that agreed with our darling girl.
Watta passed away on 23rd April 2018, we hope she is enjoying herself at the rainbow bridge. Mummy and Daddy miss you more than words can express xxx
The main photo above was taken at 2.5 Years of age (giving her mummy some lovin), 12 months sporting her new jacket & 4 months :-).
