Because I'm not only about the sad...  
In light of all my sad posts recently, I thought I'd post something a little happier today...

The Tell-Tale Signs That Sydney-Dog is Getting Better
  • The little spring in her step and twinkle in her eye that had been gone all these months has returned!! :D
  • She's gone back to munching on EVERYTHING in our damn house like there's no tomorrow :)
  • There's noticeable weight gain around her little fuzzy butt (so unlike her bony sickly other self)
  • Her insistence on stealing my pillow every night and NOT giving it up even after MUCH prodding by me has returned. ;)
  • There's LOTS and LOTS of suspicious new fur growing INSIDE her little fuzzy ears (what's that about?)
  • Her fur feels healthy again (she had lost the lustre in her coat and was shedding a lot when she was ill)
  • She's once again turned into my little fuzzy alarm clock and will NOT let me sleep past 6:30am. ;)
  • Her insistence on being INSIDE the refrigerator whenever the door is opened is back. ;)
But most of all...
  • Her little diva doggie attitude has returned :)
And Mark & I couldn't be happier! :)

Yay for diva doggie attitude! That is such wonderful news! :)

Now I'm off to brush out my doggie diva - I gave her a bath last night & now she looks like a pom pom. ;-)
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 07:30 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, Deb!! :D And how cute that Sunny looks like a pom pom - I noticed when I glanced at my friends' page that you posted some pictures of her cuteness - I MUST go and take a look! :D

I"m glad the puppy is doing better. Did they ever figure out what it was?
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 07:32 am (UTC)
Thanks Daniel! You know, they never did figure out what had made her so sick. Almost everyone I know, though has forwarded me links to the articles about the pet food recall after hearing of Sydney's illness. (But we don't feed her any of the brands of food on the recall list.)

Yea! That is awesome. Happy healthy doggies equal happy owners.
Whoo hoo!
Sheri: Sydney is...shutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 07:33 am (UTC)
Thanks so much, Ilene! We were really worried there for a moment - it's Sydney's second time that she's gotten terribly ill and the vets didn't think she'd make it... She's an amazing doggie!
ilenebook on March 22nd, 2007 03:09 pm (UTC)
Did you check her dog food against the recall? Lots of dogs and cats have died or been very ill.
Just go to a search engine and look up pet food recall.
Sheri: Sydney Dogshutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 03:58 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your comment, Ilene. :) Everyone that I know (who knows that Sydney has been ill the last couple of months) has been sending me the link to articles about the pet food recall. We don't feed her any of the brands mentioned and Sydney has had problems with liver failure in the past, perhaps it's just something she's prone to? In any case, we're very glad that she's better and not in a coma and having seizures like our vet had predicted.
ilenebook on March 22nd, 2007 04:41 pm (UTC)
I figured you had heard about it but I didn't know for certain..so I would rather error on the side of safety. It is so good that she is well.
Hugs to you and to her.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 05:13 pm (UTC)
Please don't be sorry, Ilene!! I really, REALLY appreciate your concern!!
bigrivermusicalbigrivermusical on March 21st, 2007 05:42 am (UTC)
YAY, I'm so glad to hear such good news. So Sydney has a diva attitude?! She IS a miracle dog, I'm so amazed!

BTW I sent you a DM, did you get it?
Sheri: Please?shutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 07:35 am (UTC)
Thanks so much!! And Sydney definitely is a little diva doggie. :) She'd much rather be carried up the stairs than walk herself - even though she can!

And I did get your email and I'm going there to answer it in a minute. :)

Reading this made me smile. :)

We're so thankful that Sydney's so much better! Thanks for your good thoughts for her, Laura!!

I'm glad she is doing better. :)

Thanks so much, Sue!!
Sabine: Micki's placesabine10 on March 21st, 2007 11:42 pm (UTC)
This really made me smile, I loved to read it! :) So, Sydney gets up at 6:30 am - I've to say that she is 10 minutes too late, Micki tries to wake me up at 6:20 am. :)

I'm very happy that Sydney feels better again! Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on March 22nd, 2007 07:38 am (UTC)
Aha!! I knew your fuzzy alarm was set a little before mine! ;) Sydney will actually try to lick my face if I don't wake up by 6:30. I can just hear her thinking, "You'll be late for work again!!!" ;)

Thanks for all your supportive comments and good thoughts when she was ill, Sabine!! Big HUGS and much love to you!!
