Name: ~Oliver~

Breed: Bearded Collie

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 3 years old (04/08/99)

Comments: Oliver is a very special boy that lives with six other rescues in south Florida. Thanks to a terrific vet (& staff) he is thriving on his current daily medications Florinef and Hydrocortisone. Thankfully, the k9Addisons list has provided much information which has allowed for better understanding and treatment of his disease - as well as constant support. We look forward to many more years with this boy as he has a very important position as President & Chief Demonstrator for OLiver's Brownies (all natural liver treats for dogs).

Comments: I'm back to my old self, happy, smiling, loving life, my people and my playmates Fuji and Choppie. Mom or Dad just stick the pill down my throat twice a day and I'm feeling good. So far so good.

Name: ~Rock~

Breed: Rottweiler

Sex: Male

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 3 1/2 years old.

Comments: Rock was diagnosed Atypical Addisons February 2002. We adopted him when he was 7 months old from a shelter - some creep dumped him in the woods malnourished. Rock loves playing with our cat although he can be little rough, he doesn't realize he is 138 pounds! He is very protective of his home and us but he can be quite the clown! He is the joy of our household.

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 1 year old.

Comments: I am thankful for Lily's survival every day and keep a close eye on her behavior and everything that goes in her and comes out of her. She is my precious love and I can totally relate to everyone on this K9Addisons website and what they are going through. Everyone has been extremely helpful and generous with us and I can't thank them enough.
