Subject: Birth defect?

Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Kristian, and I am owned
by 3 ferts. Chance, Sammy, and as of three days ago, Holly. I just
adopted holly from a local shelter. She is a 1 year old champagne (i
guess thats what she is. Im going off the AFA web site.) I have not
had a chance to get her to the vet for a checkup. I have an appt
scheduled for the 13 of March. My concern is this. Sometimes when
she is bent over a little she seems to have a little bump right where
her rib cage meets, just above her belly. I guess this would be the
sternum? It does not feel like a growth, but more like the end of a
rib. My other two fuzzies, dont have this. I emailed the shelter
and asked if they knew about this. The kind lady said they didnt
notice it, but if it was she thinks it is, it is probably a birth
defect. Has anybody heard of something like this? Thanks in advace.
