It was indeed PFK!!! This is the report from the genetic testing in the dog:

PFKD/ PFKD (Genetically Affected)


The examined animal is homozygous for the causative mutation for PFKD in the PFKM-gene.
Trait of inheritance: autosomal-recessive
Scientific studies found correlation between the mutation and symptoms of the disease in the following breeds: American Cocker Spaniel, English Springer Spaniel, Whippet

Cool right!
