Hello Everyone,

It has been quite a while since I wrote. Lily is now almost seven months old and is absolutely wonderful. She is a true joy in my life. However, it turns out she is also...unique. Lily began having some problems with her lady parts and had to be spayed last month. During the spay, something very interesting was discovered. Lily had both male and female parts inside of her! We are now looking at Lily having a second surgery to fix what was wrong with the lady parts in the first place.

Has anyone ever experienced this before? Know anyone who has experienced it before? I have read that while hermaphrodites are very rare in dogs, it seems to crop up more in cocker spaniels than other breeds. I would love to hear someone else's story, especially if it turned out well and they had a long, happy, and healthy life after the initial surgeries were completed.

Also, here are some more recent photos of my little one. She is one in a million.

She's cute! I do know of people who have had hemaphrodite cockers, but unfortunately don't have any information to share. It does seem to run in some lines.

By the way, I noticed we both live in the same place :happy
