Name: ~Begonia~

Breed: Bearded Bassett Hound

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 6 years old

Comments: Begonia is a 7 year old Basset Hound. She looks like a mix because of her wiry hair. It's really a recessive gene or something like that. So she is what's known as a "Bearded Basset."

Name: ~Chewy~

Breed: Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: Almost 2 years old

Comments: For over a month, we were not sure what was wrong. We only knew that he was getting sicker and we needed to find out what was wrong. Thanks to Dr. Littman, out of Pennsylvania, we found out that Chewy had Addison's Disease. Since being on his medication, he seems to be a little more spunky and almost back to his playful self. Chewy is the love of our life and we are so happy that Addison's is treatable and hope that he will be with us for a very, very long time.

Name: ~Donner~

Breed: German Shorthaired Pointer

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 4 years old

Comments: Here is Donner, our 4 yr old neutered German Shorthaired Pointer, with the toy Grandma gave him last Christmas. Donner was diagnosed with Addison's in December of 2000, and he can now run & play like a normal 4 yr old GSP again! Donner shares his home with Mom & Dad, big sis Heidi (9 yr old GSP), sweetie Katie (3 yr old GSP), Ella (5 yr old GSP), Pattie (6 yr old ES), and Hy Brass (2 yr old Chessie). He has earned a Canine Good Citizen's certificate and a novice obedience title, but his real love is agility, and he is currently working on his open standard & jumpers titles (having already completed both novice classes).
