Thank you SOOOO much to everyone...  
...who has been thinking good thoughts for our fuzzy baby!! The vet just called us and the news is good - Sydney's blood test shows that she's improved drastically since the last set of results!! In fact, our new vet said that we should cancel our appointment for the ultrasound on the 15th because she didn't think it was necessary AND she called Sydney our "miracle doggie." :) Mark & I are SOOOO thankful and wanted to express our appreciation to everyone for all the good thoughts, prayers and support you've given us over the last few weeks. We love you all!! :)

Sydney has been eating much better recently and though she still won't eat her normal food, she does devour the chicken and rice we cook for her. Mark & I are beginning to think that she's just gotten spoiled and will never go back to her dry food again. ;) She's also gaining a little bit of her weight back so the fact that she tries to jump into my arms whenever we walk up the stairs is getting increasingly difficult for me to actually pick her up - not that I'm complaining at all! :D

We are just SOOO thankful and feel like we've been given another chance (this is our third now) with her. She's simply an AMAZING dog!

And to add to the merriment of today, I received THE BEST news from a friend via email and I couldn't be happier.

Yay! That's great newws! And maybe she's not spoiled; she just needed a little extra TLC and you've been providing it!
Sheri: Sydney Dogshutterbug93 on March 14th, 2007 04:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you SOOO much for all your supportive comments and good thoughts through all of this! And I agree, she deserves a little extra TLC during this time. :D

Wonderful !!

Shelties are, in general, the toughest little things. (Mine has survived cancer and a vicious wild-dog attack.)

Glad to hear things are looking up !!
Sheri: Sydney Dogshutterbug93 on March 15th, 2007 04:38 pm (UTC)
Oh my, your little one has been through a lot! :( But I do have to agree that they are VERY strong! Thanks so much for all your supportive comments!!
kathyselden on March 14th, 2007 05:57 pm (UTC)
YAY! I'm so glad she's all well again!

Thanks so much, Ashley for all your supportive words and good thoughts through all of this!! HUGS!

Oh I'm so glad she's doing better, I hadn't realized she was sick. :( (I haven't had much free time lately.) It seems like lots of my friends have had sick doggies recently, but so far all of them are on the mend, yay! Sending more healthy doggie vibes your way, I know how upsetting it is to have a sick dog.
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on March 15th, 2007 04:42 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for your good thoughts and for your sweet comment! Thankfully Sydney's doing much better - we were very worried there for a while!

Wow, this was wonderful news! I am very happy to hear this.

Into is a very difficult eater. If we give him just dry food, he will wait for days. And sometimes he doesn't eat even if we mix something delicious together with the dry food. He is actually pretty skinny but with all that hair, he doesn't look that skinny. But last time the vet mentioned that he was pretty skinny and asked if he was active anyway. OH YEAH! He sure is active. So the vet thought then it is not a problem, he seems to know how much he needs to eat.
Sheri: Sydney Dogshutterbug93 on March 16th, 2007 07:00 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, Kati! Sydney's a pretty finicky eater too... She doesn't eat her dry food all the time and will snub it a lot. It was hard for us to tell whether she wasn't feeling well or just not interested in eating when she got ill this past time.

Wonderful news! I'm very happy to hear that Sydney is doing better! She tries to jump into your arms? I think, should Micki ever would have such an idea we both would fall down.

It's always good to hear good news from a friend, isn't it? I'm glad that your friend got good news and that this all made you so happy, Sheri! :)

Big *hugs* and much love to all of you!
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on March 16th, 2007 07:03 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for all your good thoughts and for your friendship, Sabine!! You've been wonderfully supportive through everything! :)

I can imagine that if Micki did try to jump in your arms, it wouldn't be a good thing. ;) Sydney's only about 19 pounds right now, but she's still got the power to knock me down! ;)

And I love good news emails!! :D I love when wonderful things happen to people who are totally deserving of it!! :)

Big HUGS and much love to you!!
