   Leave a bone for Sydney angel

Syd, baby girl, smart girl, sweetie pie, silly girl, twirly girl (cause she spins in circles before she fertilizes the grass)

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Rainbow Bridge
Quick Bio:
-purebred-pound dog-blind
-dog rescue

January 21st 1995

Sleeping, ear scratches, sunbathing, treats, walks, car rides (and sticking her head out of the window), her grandparents, being loved on (on her terms of course)

Being brushed, having her paws touched, doggies bothering her, Shakey trying to play with her when she's sleeping

Favorite Toy:
She doesn't play with toys much anymore

Favorite Food:
Anything! cheese, chicken, carrots, any doggy treats - she's not picky! She's very food motivated.

Favorite Walk:
Up and down the block

Best Tricks:
She can manuver through the world like she's not even blind. She has the most amazing sense of smell. So her best trick is not appearing to be blind. :)

Arrival Story:
I volunteer with a schnauzer rescue group (, and one sat. in January I visited the local shelter looking for schnauzers. I saw this little gray fuzzball in one of the cages and immediately put my name on her to adopt her. Two days later, I brought her home. :)

Sydney has cataracts, but this doesn't stop her at all. She barks and walks and does everything like a normal doggie would. She's incredibly smart and has a superb sense of smell. She's also alpha over her younger 'brother' Shakespeare, but don't tell him that! When other dogs bother her too long, like at the dog park, she grrrs at them, and they leave her alone. I don't know what she says, but I'd like to know so I can use it! Sydney is actually between 11 and 13 years old.

Forums Motto:
I am so smart!

Sweet Sydney's Diary (as typed by her mom)

Today is my Gotcha Day

Mom adopted me from the shelter seven years ago today. Mom posted a bunch of new pictures of me, and she gave my fursibs Shakespeare and Lacey chewies and treats in my honor. Yum! At the bridge I get treats every day whenever I want whatever I want. It's not bad, BOL.

Our friends have been remembering us today, and many have sent us sweet messages.

"Happy Birthday to Sydney. May she romp and play and be the queen today among her friends at the bridge."

"Happy gotcha day up in doggie heaven, Syd! I'm sure life is treating you well over the bridge! You are definitely not forgotten... "

"Dear sweet Sydney.
If you can read this, please know that your smiling face is greatly missed, but today, as on every day, we hold you so very close to our hearts."

"Aw Sydney girl, I'll never forget her Gotcha Day story. Sweet memories of a sweet girl."

Thank you Angel Tiffany, Crystal, Kelly Ann, and my angel friends in Rainbow Bridge Angel Babies.

Thanks to everyone for remembering me today.

BOL, I feel like I just gave an awards speech!

I get to meet my heart sister

Mom told me that my friend Gretchen would be joining me at Rainbow Bridge sometime today. Gretchen's been sick. :( Gretchen is like my heart sister. Her mom and my mom adopted us a few months apart, and both Gretchen and I were older blind shelter schnauzer girls. So our moms have always felt a kinship over us, and so have me and Gretchen. I'm glad to be able to meet her, but sad for her mom and family and fursibs. Mom's lighting my candle for Gretchen tonight. We love you Gretchen, and we will miss you dearly.
