We know our time with her is limited...  
...so we're trying to enjoy every minute of it. Especially now when she's in good spirits and seems to be doing well.

Mark & I thank you all so much for all your comments, prayers, and concerns! Your friendship and support through our hard time has meant the world to us!!

Here are some photos from today...


Sydney was so happy and proud because she could actually get up on her back legs!! :)


She looks just like a little angel when she sleeps!


We know that some VERY hard days are ahead of us, but we're choosing to cherish the moments that we have with her now. Blessings and love to all of you!!

That's a great first picture of her! And I think you guys are right on to enjoy the moments you have with her now. I'm doing the same with my little Franklin. He gets away with EVERYTHING now. heh.

*hugz*

Both of you's are doing the right thing here by focusing on cherishing your moments right now. Its important for The Fuzziness to see this - now more than ever.

Your doing everything right -

your being there
holdng her
loving her
cherishing her
comforting her

thats all she needs ..

They ask for so little but they give back so much in return.............................

Oooh Sheri, I'm going to cry. This all just breaks my heart. I'm so sorry that you've had to go through so much. And poor Sydney too! Your poor baby. :( :( Definitely enjoy your time with her and just make sure she knows that you love her so much, which I'm sure she does. So much love to you. <3<3

Thank you SO MUCH for your comment and the love and friendship that you've shown us through all of this!! We are definitely going to cherish every moment we have with Sydney! It's very hard for us to think about what's ahead, but we are comforted in knowing that Sydney knows that we love her dearly!! Much love to you!!!

That first picture is just precious - she's definitely got some life left in her! :)

She is so strong and has such a good attitude that she's been such an inspiration to us!!

Oh, Sheri...those pictures are so precious. Believe me, we know exactly how you're feeling and what you're going through. I can say, though, that one of the things that comforted us all when that time did eventually come (which is hopefully a long way off for Sydney yet!), was that we were all able to say "Sarah knew how much we loved her." I think the same can be said for Sydney - she must know how much you both love her, and I'm sure that that is even part of what keep her spirits up! Love to you all!!
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 22nd, 2007 09:08 pm (UTC)
Karen!!!! We love you!!! Thank you SO MUCH for your sweet, sweet comment and for your love and concern! Sydney is such an amazing dog that she's been such an inspiration to us - always with such a wonderful attitude and so brave and strong!! And you're so right, when her time does come we will be comforted in the fact that Sydney knew how much she meant to us. Love you!!
Sabine: Mickisabine10 on July 22nd, 2007 08:44 pm (UTC)
Yes, Sydney looks happy and, of course, also like a little angel. :) Please tell her that she has every reason to be proud. To me too you are doing the right to enjoy every moment you have with her. And thanks for giving us the possibility to do the same, it means a lot to me. Love you all over there. Big *hugs*
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 22nd, 2007 09:13 pm (UTC)
Oh, Sabine - thank you SO MUCH for always being there for us! You were there when Sydney was sick for the first time and we know, even though you have never met her that you love her the way that we do. Sydney is such a strong and amazing dog and she's such an inspiration to us!! Lots and LOTS of love to you!!

You guys are doing the right thing, cherishing the time you have with her. *hugs* and hopefully that time will turn out to be longer than expected, but that dog knows she is loved and she still looks like she has a lot of spunk. Those pictures are great! Robert is looking over my shoulder and we both said "awwwwwwww!" when we saw them. :) It's never easy and time is always way too short.

Thank you so much for your comment, Laura. It's been very hard for us, even the good times are incredibly sad for us. We're just so thankful that we have more time to spend with her. Big HUGS to you!!

Sydney looks absolutely beautiful! Cherishing the moments you have with Sydney is the best thing you can do. *BIGHUGS* I'm sorry I haven't been more supportive or mia lately. If you need anything, please let me know. *hugs* Give Sydney a huge hug for me please. :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 23rd, 2007 08:52 am (UTC)
Thank you for your comment, Carrie! I know that you're away and it means so much that you'd take time out from your travels to comment about this. And you've been VERY supportive - through everything, from the very first time that Sydney got sick 4 years ago. Thank you SO MUCH!! We love you! And I will definitely give Sydney a HUG for you!!

Sue - you are just the sweetest!! Sydney is the true inspiration, though - she's in good spirits, strong, and such a fighter. I look at her and can't help but want to fight with her everyday! Big HUGS and much love to you!!
Was I in it?alligatorandme on July 23rd, 2007 10:21 pm (UTC)
I love those pictures! I love every picture of her. :-) The last one made me wonder, though -- does she drool when she sleeps? ;-)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 24th, 2007 03:51 am (UTC)
Thanks for your comment!! :) And oddly enough, she doesn't drool at all - I think we humans drool more than dogs. ;)

She looks GREAT! And you are so right.... you just cherish every day you have with her and don't think about what's to come....
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 24th, 2007 03:53 am (UTC)
Thanks Stacey! It's hard for us to believe sometimes that she's so ill - she's always very upbeat and seems to be in such good spirits. :) And we are cherishing EVERY moment we have with her. :) Big HUGS to you!!
Smitha: hugssmittenbyu on July 28th, 2007 07:23 am (UTC)
oh how adorable she looks! Haven't had enough downloads left and so couldn't come by to check on how she is! It is sad to hear, but it is also good to hear that you are enjoying the time together as much as you can!

give her a big hug from me! :)
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on July 30th, 2007 03:33 pm (UTC)
Smitha!! I'm so sorry, I didn't see this comment earlier! Thanks SO MUCH for your comment and hugs for Sydney! I know she'll appreciate them!

She's Beautiful!!
I saw a comment on SueTrys page and see you have a gorgeous and sweet Sheltie. What's wrong with your precious girl? I will be praying for your sweet Sydney.

Re: She's Beautiful!!
Hi there! Thanks so much for your comment! Unfortunately, Sydney has been through so much lately... She's in the final stages of liver disease and has had a bunch of neurological problems from the medication that she was prescribed. :( Thankfully she's a very strong dog with an amazing attitude on life and has overcome so much, including temporary blindness and paralysis. She's actually walking around our house right now. :)

Thanks so much for your prayers!! They mean so much to us!!
