My Beautiful Girl Sydney
Our precious Sydney has been with us almost 14 years, and although she can't chase the Frisbee anymore - which was the LOVE of her life activity (5 times a day, everyday!) she is still my most loyal and loving companion.
Syd is a female red merle with the kindest heart and the gentlest soul. I feel very badly that both of her back knees now have torn ACLs due to the activity she has loved all of her life - you Aussie lovers know how active this breed is and how they want to WORK in whatever way that means. We are buying a holster to help her up and down the steps now and she looks at me with her big brown eyes lovingly, knowing she will never play again, but also content in lying by my desk everyday as I work from home.
I will always be grateful for the time we have had with this amazing girl. She helped rescue our other two dogs when a fire burned our home to the ground 2 years ago - by getting them into the basement and barking until the firemen came in through the garage just in the knick of time to save them before the building collapsed - even though she is terrified of loud noises and sirens. God truly sent her to me and I always whisper in her ear that I will play all the frisbee in the most amazing fields of green when we get to heaven.
