So Mrs. Brinza got a hold of the SNAP test results (after students did some research on what it actually tested for), but did not come through on the echocardiogram results. :-(
However, the SNAP test was pretty informative! Susie tested positive for heartworm, whatever that is!
With a little bit of research, autopsies in animals are apparently called necropsies, and it made sense to see if a necropsy of a dog with heartworm (like Susie) was available. It was!!! And boy was it interesting!

New Questions that Arose about Heartworm:
This really has us wondering more about Buddy. Since most of Mrs. Brinza's students had her last year, we know that a sickness (which is made of matter) can't appear out of nowhere, and Buddy is the first dog to have these symptoms. Students are asking for more info about Buddy...like where has he been? And is he alive?
