    I would definitely take her up on the offer! Molly will have a little sibling to play with who has the same amount of energy as her! I agree with at @Danielle, I think it's a meant to be situation as well!!

    For all you know right now, Molly might not get any worse. From what I gather, surgery is only recommended when the arthritis sets in. If you keep her trim and exercise her arthritis might never set in. If it does, it does but I try to cross bridges when I get to them.

    I would grab that puppy before she changes her mind and the very next day sign up for the insurance with the options pack.

Molly will need a lot of your attention when she gets worse and playing with the pup could cause her more pain. It is hard to keep them quiet when there is a play mate close by. I also would not take the pup and then if it does not work out, just give it away, especially to someone who could not afford to buy one, because if they can not afford to buy one, they can not afford to take proper care of it with the vet bills and such. This is just my two cents worth. I'm sure you will make the right decision that is right for you.
    I couldn't have said it any better than that! Let us know what you decide!

    Katara is having issues with her knee too and her breeder didn't offer a new puppy.. come on Breeder, offer me a puppy too!!
    I am too weak, I would take up on that offer in an instant... maybe that's why my breeder didn't offer it to me right?
    I know you will make the right decision for your family and Molly too...

    Eagerly and Nervously awaiting the homecoming of Bruno Cannoli

    There are several threads around about pet insurance. Everyone has a different opinion on which one is best. But I think most agree to stay away from VPI

    Abby has Trupanion with what they call "the optional benefits package". I pay my 50.00 co-pay and for office visits. They pay 90% of the balance. The optional benefits package includes hip dysplasia, acupuncture, physical therapy, hydro therapy, behavioral modification, training or therapy and FELINE kidney transplants It costs me 55.00 a month and they have never denied a claim. I usually get my checks 2 weeks after I submit my bills.

    If you decide to go with them, make sure you select BULLDOG as the breed type. It seems to be cheaper than if you choose English Bulldog even tho the descriptions are identical. Although, I don't know what you'd choose for sex

    edit... forgot to answer your other question
    It won't cover anything diagnosed prior to your signing up. But once the extra parts are taken out, I can't imagine what other problems could be caused by being born confused.
