Some of you may or may not know that KC is the inspiration behind the Shade Out DM logo. She loved wearing her 'sunnies' and the reaction she would get from people when they saw her. Since she suffered from DM, a friend suggested that they 'Shade Out DM', and #shadeoutdm was born to help spread awareness of this terrible disease
What is DM? DM stands for Degenerative Myelopathy, which would be the canine version of ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease. It affects over 100 dog breeds and is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Many people are unaware of this incurable disease, so we want to spread awareness, as it CAN be prevented by genetic testing prior to breeding; making well educated decisions.
