Hi Max, my name is Scooter. I am following in my birth grandma Dutchess's paw steps. I have Cushing's Disease and Congestive Heart Failure. Mama Nancy watched grandma Dutchess battle her diseases for 5 years and now she is having to watch me go through it to. Grandma Dutchess weighed 39 pounds when she finally made her journey to the Bridge. She also was full blown Diabetic and was full of Cancer. Her liver totally shut down. The Vet was amazed she lived as long as she did. But she was a fighter. When she was down for the count and the Vet said "Take her home and enjoy what time you have left with her." But she surprised everyone and rallied again and again. Finally at the end mama Nancy said she has been through enough. She was drinking so much water that it was coming out the back end as fast as it was going in.

I now weigh 18 pounds. I did weigh 11 pounds. We are hoping by joining this group we might find a way to get me through this. Mama Nancy is so worried. I was told I have Cushing's Disease four years ago. My Congestive Heart Failure has escalated and it is getting harder to breath and I get into coughing spells and I panic because I can't breathe.

I will be 12 Sept 12th. Grandma Dutchess went to the Bridge at the age of 10.

Thank you Maxi. It was so hard on all of us furs to watch Grandma Dutchess. She was the bravest pup we have ever known. I hope as time goes by, I to will hold up to her. My Dr also told mama to take me home and enjoy what time we have left. Mama started to cry and she held me so tight. I wanted her to join this group for her.

Thank you again Maxi and the others for making it easy for us to all come together and help each other. Somehow I think it will make it so much easier to deal with this knowing we aren't alone. What a loving thing for all of you to do.
Hugs and Love to you, your mama and Admins

Hi Max, Scooters and Checkers. Wow its great to see my pals here. Well I may have Cushings Disease. My creatin levels came back very high in my urine test so I am suppose to see a specialist Tuesday. Otherwise I seem fine. I am diabetic.
I do not have a pot belly nor do I pee in the house. I was wondering what my next step should be. They want me to get a 400. ultra sound Tuesday to see if there is a tumor but I am not sure if they could do anything about it if there is. Some do not do anything about their Cushings. What do you all think?

Sugar, I have accidents going to the door red face I try so hard to make it outside. Mama never corrects me because she knows I can't control it. I go in for a Diabetic check next Tues because I am drinking water like there will be no water tomorrow. I look like a pot belly pig. Round and firm. We don't know where the weight came from as I don't eat much. If I turn out to be a Diabetic, mama said that is no problem since she is one to. She is on Insulin and she gives all the new born babies their first shots before they go to their new homes. Sugar, do you have Congestive Heart Failure? What do you do for the lack of energy? I will be 12 on Sept 12th

Hi everyone, my name is Grandma Dutchess. All my friends call me grandma and I hope you all will to.

I am now a Bridge Angel but I suffered with Cushings Disease and it was let go to long and nothing they gave me worked.

I remember when mama Nancy took me to the Vet. I weighed 25 pounds. Instead of the Vet addressing why I weighed so much he yelled at mama. He told her she should be ashamed of herself letting me get that big. He told her she was unfit to own a dog. Mama started crying and picked me up from the table, put me on the floor and hooked my leash on me. As we walked through the waiting room everyone looked at me then at mama in disgust and shook their heads. She found another Vet and that was when she found out I had this horrible disease. This Vet knew the min mama told her my symptoms.

Thank you Maxi and the rest of you for bringing this group to life. I wish you would have been here when I was still here but at least you are now for my Grand Daughter Scooter and others. I hope you don't mind my sitting in. All those who are affected with this terrible Disease, including my Scooter have a long road ahead of you. Today you can join paws and work together to find solutions for getting through this. Team Work.

Hello Checkers and Buddy! We are so happy you are here! I am so glad Max thought of starting this group. None of us in our family having Cushings Disease, however we know others that do, and knew there was no Support group out there. We felt there was a strong need for it! Please jump in at any time!
