B or C

Not exam grades (those I'm not planning to talk about here!) but hip predictions. Laxmi thinks Orkan's right hip probably has a grade B or C of CHD. Not very bad, but still it bugs me... I know that his breeder probably didn't mean to withold any information, but if I knew his mother had CHD grade D on the right hip, i probably wouldn't have bought the puppy. Let's misunderstand this the right way: I love Orkan and would never get rid of him, nor regret that I got him, but my mind won't let me rest with the fact that he was born with a structural problem that's probably already causing him pain (remember that whas why I checked this in the first place)...
