Quick Bio:
-mutt

Likes:
He loved his walks and playing with tennis balls and of course all of his toys. Sydney used to love to play keep away with his tennis balls. One day when he was 6, we discovered that he could hold THREE tennis balls in his mouth at the same time!

Pet-Peeves:
baths and yet he ran like a deer through the house afterwards and would get real spunky!

Favorite Toy:
I'd have to say that Phil , the dinosaur was his fav.

Favorite Food:
bacon, chewies ......and anything that I was eating.

Favorite Walk:
Cherokee blvd. The Park! I couldn't even say the word out loud our he'd go crazy.....I'd make sure I had everything ready and then tell him. He literally would jump up and down. Why is it big dogs always get your feet? hahaha........all dogs really.

Best Tricks:
Being able to hold two tennis balls in his mouth at one time....and on rare occasions.......THREE! He also had to the ability to make everyone laugh when he walked in to a room.

Arrival Story:
I was house sitting and the next door neighbors had an OES named Molly. She was only a year old and accidently got pregnant......she had 11 beautiful puppies that looked like little bear cubs. Of course I spent a lot of time with those pups and was offered the pick of the litter. I helped deliver his litter. What a great day. He lived 11 years wonderful years. I remember one vet I had that always reminded me that he'd only live to be 8 to 10 years old. He started telling me that when Sydney was 7. I left that vet after my second visit.....what a loser. When Sydney made it to 11, I wanted to call him and rub it in a bit. Didn't care for his negativity and he was wrong! Some days I don't think I'll ever be the same without him but then I remember all the joy he gave me and I'm okay.

Bio:
My Sydney went to rainbow bridge almost 3 years ago. June 25th, 2001. He was just as loveable and comical up to the day I had to let him go. Anyone that knew my Sydney, loved my Sydney and I know that he's running through beautiful fields and his bad leg is all better and no pain. Poor fella broke both front legs when he was just a pup. It never slowed him down and he never complained. He crushed one elbow but that never slowed him down. He just favored it. I miss you Sydney. Always *Favorite one liners about Sydney by passers by. "Look, it's a guy in a dog suit!" "It's proof of evolution!" "Who was that brunette in your car the other day?"
