Comments: Here's Taz at the Salton Sea. Taz thrives on adventure and the thrill of the chase. He's known as Taz the Tormentor to Fluffy (background)& our cats. To humans (the mail carrier excluded) he is a loverboy whose eyes can melt the polar ice. When he sits on my lap I just want to burst! (Husband loves him too!)

Name: ~Sammy~

Breed: English Springer Spaniel

Sex: Female

Age Diagnosed w/Addison's: 5 1/2 years old

Comments: Here’s Sammy standing on her perch on the deck. She enjoys laying there keeping a look-out for squirrels and noisy birds whereupon she will run across the yard and bark at them, occasionally attempting to jump up a tree. She has a small wading pool she enjoys jumping into on hot days and a place inside at the end of the bed at night. She’s a real ‘people person’ and enjoys a lot of attention. Sammy shares the yard with our two other dogs. She is doing well on Percorten-V and Prednisone.
