No, the Apostles' and Dormition fasts were never observed in the West. There are some fasts that we do that the East does not, such as the fasts during Ember days that occur four times a year.

I thought I read somewhere that the Apostles fast was observed in Rome

Btw, I was at the WRO Holy Incarnation in Detroit, and this topic came up, and the priest made the observation that they are more regulations on how much, rather than what, is eaten.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
