In Memory of Wesson
Though Momo Patch primarily focuses on corgis, DM affects over 100 dog breeds, and our Shade Out DM series will reflect that diversity. As such, our next hard enamel pin in the #shadeoutdm series is in honor of Wesson, who will be forever loved and forever missed. Wesson was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever diagnosed with Degenerative Myelopathy and has since crossed the rainbow bridge.
Some of you followed Wesson and his adventures on social media, but for those of you who did not follow him already, please see his IG account @wesson_beyar celebrating this beautiful boy.
As with the other #shadeoutdm pins, $5 of each pin will go directly to Shade Out DM, and they have chosen to use the proceeds to go into creating more pin designs!
Wesson's legacy lives on as his memory is helping to spread awareness of this terrible disease.
Wesson is 1.75 inches long with silver plating and two black rubber backings.
What is DM? DM stands for Degenerative Myelopathy, which would be the canine version of ALS/LouGehrig's Disease. It affects over 100 dog breeds and is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Many people are unaware of this non-curable disease, so we want to spread awareness, as it CAN be prevented by genetic testing prior to breeding & making well educated decisions.
