His mom Baby had pups, and I am the owner of her as well as the dad, so we kept him, because we got attached after 9 weeks couldn't just give him up

Hi Roscoe

Happy Happy Saturday :0 We hope that all has been well with you during our absence from DC. First we want to thank everyone for their prayers for me. We do believe God was listening. We went to the Dr’s thinking kidney disease which would have been a ticking time bomb with just a matter of time before it exploded. The diagnosis of Addison’s while not curable but treatable was a good thing. We just have to get the medication doses & timing down now. Once we get past this first month, should be smooth sailing after that. Over the past few months, I had stopped being the energizer bunny with spring loaded legs. Mom had chalked it up to “maturity” & my seizure medications. Turns out it was the Addison’s that was affecting me because I am non-stop again & the springs are back in my legs. My first morning home I tried to steal mom’s waffle off her plate with her sitting right there. And then I found a plastic bag of dog toys on the kitchen counter. I got the bag off the counter & helped myself to one of the toys. Mom says she can’t turn her back on me for a minute but she is soooo happy to have me back & feeling so good. My sister Abbie is happy to have me back to old self also. I had totally stopped running & playing with her. This morning I ran her ragged & she is the other room resting while I am still up & pestering mom. I am back to eating my regular dog kibble also. Mom no longer has to cook for me. My lack of appetite which mom had thought was from my seizure meds is no longer a problem. The lack of appetite was from the Addison’s. It’s just really odd that I have been diagnosed with both Epilepsy & Addison’s within months of each other. Thank you again for your prayers & concerns. We believe all your prayers contributed to the miracle of me running, playing & yes occasionally getting into trouble once again. BBS. Regis & Mom Beccie

Hi Roscoe

Happy New Year’s. Sorry we have been MIA for so long. All of our company is now gone so things should settle down around here soon. We’re starting out the New Year with high hopes that my seizures are under control. 10 weeks seizure free. Even all of the excitement around here the past couple of weeks didn’t trigger a seizure. Our Christmas was a good one & I discovered that Christmas is a free day. Santa had already come & he’s too tired from all of his travels to keep track of whether you are naughty or nice. So guess who was naughty on Christmas. Yep, that would be me the naughty one. I kept trying to steal things off the counter & out of the sink. And I did it right in front of mom. Probably have better luck if I wait for mom to turn her back :) Mom’s tests were all pretty normal. She found out that her heart has a leaky valve but they said it was nothing to worry about & that she was probably born with it. Mom splurged on herself & bought an elliptical. And she got a Kindle from our skin brother. Mom really loves the kindle. We had a Fiesta Bowl party last night. Mom’s Alma Mater Oklahoma State was playing and it was a nail biter. We really enjoyed the game because mom kept jumping up & yelling. And of course we had to celebrate with her by barking & howling. Luckily no one complained about the noise level at our house. BBS.

Hi Roscoe

Happy Saturday. Hope all is well at your house. Sorry we have been absent so long on DC. Mom had to go to the hospital again & this time they kept her overnight. And the hospital made her feel worse than she did when she went in. So after getting out of the hospital, she felt so ill that she slept for almost 18 hours straight. And we were such good puppies that we let her sleep without disturbing her. I did sleep on top her but I’m pretty sure that isn’t classified as disturbing her. Anyway long story short, mom is fine & should be fine. She has to do a stress echocardiogram and an upper GI the week before Christmas. Mom is off work that week & isn’t that a great way to spend your vacation. Money & his paper obsession however is driving mom crazy. So far this week, mom has caught him with 2 rolls of paper towels & a paper bag. If it’s paper & within his reach, he s stealing it & eating it. He steals them & takes them back to mom’s bedroom to eat them. But we always tell on him before he can consume too much of it. But mom says the damage is already done as who wants to use paper towels that have been on the floor & have big bites missing. As for me, I am doing well. Mom believes she made the right decision in not giving me the additional prescription for my seizures & that my original prescription just needed time to work. We have no hope of ever being seizure free but the combination of the meds & the home cooked diet seem to be working. BBS. Regis

Hi Roscoe

Happy Wednesday. Only 2 more days till the weekend :) We have rain starting now & cooler temps on the way. Sorry we weren’t on yesterday. Our printer broke so mom was working on hooking up a new one. She didn’t think it would take nearly as long as it did. One of the cords wasn’t long enough so she had to re-arrange everything. Even with the re-arranging, she still had to cut a hole in the back of the computer cabinet. But we’re happy to report that she finally got it installed & working. I’m still eating my yummy food & loving it. Mom has started another crock pot full & it’s currently cooking. She was going to wait until this weekend to make more but says she wants to use the crock pot for herself this weekend. I guess I can let mom use MY crock pot this weekend as long as she remembers who it belongs to. Mom says it’s probably too early to see any results from the home cooking but she says I have been really bright eyed. Bright eyes usually mean that my brain is thinking up some kind of trouble like counter surfing (who me? counter surf?). We all know that’s not true & don’t you go believing mom when she says she caught me with my paws on the counter more than once this week. BBS. Regis

Hi Roscoe

Hope you had a great day today. I got my first taste of real meat today. Mom doesn't ever give us people food so this home cooking thing is great. I ate every last bite of the food mom gave me. I even ate the kibble that she mixed in with it. Yummy chicken & vegetables. Mom had trippled the recipe when she made it yesterday so looks like I have about a week worth of food. Mom divided it into individual servings & froze all but tomorrow's portions. If I'm still eating well by the end of the week then mom will make another batch. Mom wonders if my lack of appetite is due to the medication also. In dogs they list vomiting & diarhea as side effects for dogs but not loss of appetite. They do however list loss of appetite for cats as a side effect. Maybe I have a little cat in me. hehe As for the costume, I really don't mind wearing it. I just walk around in it & don't pay any attention to it at all. The MisFits think they are so much smarter than I am because they are not as cooperative with wearing costumes. But I ask you my freinds, who is the smarter dog? The one who wears costumes & gets home cooked meals or the ones who won't wear a costume & get kibble to eat? BBS. Regis

Hi Roscoe

Happy Wednesday. Hope you are having a great day. Rainy & cold here today. 2 weeks ago our temperature was 102. Today it is 56 & it’s supposed to drop into the 30’s tonight. Since we’re stuck inside, mom has been looking for ways to entertain us. I should really say entertain me as I am the only one literally bouncing off the furniture. So mom was singing with Money, Abbie & Pooh while I danced with her. It got really loud here for awhile but we sure had fun. Now I am working on trying to steal Dorito’s off mom’s plate but she is doing a really good job of guarding them from me. Other than that not much else going on here. BBS. Regis

Hi Roscoe

We sure hope things settle down at your house & your mom can relax again. Having so much extra stress is not good. Not sure if you know but my seizures became really frequent & I was having 4 to 5 seizures a week. I went to the neurologist at Purdue University & they confirmed my vet's diagnosis of Idiopathic Epilepsy. They started me on seizure medication that I take 3 times a day. The first week I on the medication, I was really sick, wobbly on my feet & very lethargic. But then I adjusted to the medication & the past couple of weeks of been much better. I'm still in the trial period for the medication so only time will tell how well it works. But right now it looks promising. BBS. Regis

Hi Roscoe

TGIF. Do you have any plans for the weekend? We don’t have any. Mom says we’re just going to hang out & she’s going to relax. We really don't know why I have the seizures. Mom was hoping that eliminating rosemary & changing my food would do the trick. It may still help some as it usually takes 4 to 6 weeks for diet changes to make any difference. Our extreme heat finally broke yesterday. Only about 88 today & a lot less humid. Sorry we weren’t on yesterday but we wanted to enjoy the break in the heat & spent the evening outside. I found the best stick in the yard to chew on. I know it had to be the best because Money & Abbie kept trying to take it away from me. I finally got tired of them trying to steal it, so I ran to mom & climbed into the steal free zone of her lap. Mom & I are still battling over my food in the morning. I eat it just fine in the evening but I give mom grief with the morning meal. It’s been taking about 30 minutes just to get me to eat & mom has been barely getting to work on time. So this morning I took my usual stance of not being interested in my food. Mom said “Regis, I don’t have time for this”. So she got some plain lowfat yogurt out of the fridge & added some to my food. Guess who quickly ate every last bite of his food. It would seem that I understand that mom has the time to outwait me in the evenings but has to keep to a schedule in the mornings. Mom made have won the intial battle but looks like once again I have bested her. BBS. Regis
