Casper Bear
Name: ~Casper Bear~

Breed: Samoyed

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 5 years, 1 month old (Feb 7, 2002)

Comments: When Casper crashed he was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure. He was put on intravenous fluids and I was told his life expectency was very limited (they were talking days). Fortunately for us our normal vet looked at his test results and recognised the signs of Addisions Disease - his tests results confirmed it. Cassie has been on medication for almost four weeks now and is back to his normal loving mischievous and demanding self! There is not a day goes by that I don't thank God he is still with us!

Name: ~Jezabel~

Breed: Gordon Setter

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 6 1/2 months old

Comments: This is Blackthorn's Yankee Jezabel. The "Yankee" is because despite a southern address, she is a New Yorker at heart. She was born April 2001 and diagnosed with Addison's Disease in October of the same year. She was really not feeling well and fortunately was diagnosed quickly. After her treatment started, she returned to her playful self. She is one of the sweetest, good natured puppies I have ever known. Jezabel got a puppy girl just after Christmas and has proven to be a wonderful big sister. Our big princess has enough love to go around but she is truely Daddy's little girl. Despite all the worry that her Addison's causes us, I still thank her everyday for the joy she brings to our home.
