Sidney

Recommended Posts

I am so sad to be writing and posting this...

After 9 months Sidney finally lost the battle with Leukemia. 

He was the sweetest dog I have ever met. He was so gentile. He was in the rescue a full year longer due to being deemed "cat unsafe", but he was terrified of our 3 kitties. He let them swat at him and never even looked twice at them. He was so patient and laid back. He was a gentleman to our June and would let her push her way out the door first while he politely waited back. He even waited patiently for the cats to move out of the way if they were in front of his food bowls. 

He was beautiful... a perfect red brindle with the softest fur... like a bunny. People always commented on how soft his fur was. And he was so regal... always held his head up and looked proper. He had ears to die for... just big and alert.

He loved the yard... he would run around doing zoomies with his buddy June when she was still alive. He would run to the fence and bark at the deer. He'd do crazy figure 8s. And he'd walk the perimeter like he was patrolling his turf. Then he'd lie down and roll around in the grass and just watch. 

Cancer is a total b*tch. It takes our loved ones without care or remorse. I wish we had so much more time with him, but sadly we do not. I cherish every moment we had. He will forever have a spot in my heart.

The house is so quiet without any greyhounds...

I am so very sorry.  I do hate cancer.  It is the thief who robs us, every day, of those we love.  Take comfort in knowing that Sydney is at peace, pain free and running once again with the wind.

You can just tell how soft he was from the pix. Send your folks a sign, sweetie.

I am so very sorry and you are right cancer is so very evil. I second that last pic, a beautiful shot. Sidney was and always will be beautiful himself.

We will think of your beautiful boy's spirit forever watching his yard and fence.  I'm so sorry for your losses this year.  The brindle boys here send leg leans.  :grouphug
