Ty is truly our baby and we wake up every morning and smile because he is still here we love him with all our hearts. Ty loves to play ball with his sisters. He loves to run and play and is more a puppy now then he has every been. We look forward to many many years together. Ty will be 4 on June 19th, 2002.

Breed: Chow/Terrier Mix

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 3 years 9 months old (Sept 2001)


Comments: Sandie has bounced back remarkably and then some! For about two years we thought she just had a sensitive stomach which would cause occasional stomach upset. But now we know it was the Addison's Disease creeping up on her. She is so happy now and so are we!



Poor George II
Name: ~Poor George II~

Breed: Miniature Poodle

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 4 1/2 years old


Comments: Poor George's first owner died when he was a young pup. He was given to a couple that passed him on to a lady that subsequently took him to the pound. I knew I had to have him the second I laid eyes on him. It took 4 days to process the paperwork, but we made bail, and headed home. He is the son we never had, my constant companion, and just a furry little love muffin. He lives a happy, healthy life now, thanks to his doctor and support from this group. There really IS light at the end of the Addison's tunnel!
