well with the car accident, that just doesn't make sense...and as an optimistic person, I can't help but see the blank COD, and think "oh maybe it was something else"...but deep inside I know it was likely cancer. I think if we knew generally what was thought to be the type of cancer, it would still be helpful, if not in a scientific way, at least qualitatively so. Especially as more information is discovered, having a solid record of the past can only help us make breeding decisions.
I understand the idea that those who are open, and others aren't, it makes them look bad. But after getting more experienced, I'm worried when there isn't that information that is a little scary. Like if there are no failing results on OFA, or anything about PU/cancer/cataracts/ED/HD on K9 data, I assume, they aren't being open, vs. their line being far superior than other dogs of similar pedigrees.
