Name: ~Niki~

Breed: Newfoundland

Sex: Female

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

Comments: Niki was diagnosed with Addisons in December 1996, though we suspect she most likely had it for about a year prior to diagnosis. She has been doing very well for the past 3 years on DOCP, with a weekly maintenance dose of pred. Niki is a wonderful dog, who loves to be around people, especially children, and draws "Ooohs and Ahhhs" everywhere we go.

Comments: Feb. 24th, 2000 will be Des's 5th month anniversary with AD without complications and, her 15th birthday! "Happy Birthday Desi our beloved girl." The time, money etc....dealing with this disease has been a small price to pay for such love and joy she has given us. You go girl~!!

Comments: Our world stopped when Booker crashed. We're so thankful that he was diagnosed quickly and his treatment (DOCP and prednisone) is going well. We now fondly refer to him as our third car payment! Booker makes friends wherever we go. We have regular stops through the neighborhood shops for him to collect kisses, rubs and treats -- his favorite things! **Visit Booker's Page !!
