So lets begin this post by re-introducing you to our dog Sydney. (Yep this is her, back when she was a sweet little pup that could barely walk)
We got Sydney about 1 week after I found out I was pregnant with Caleb because hubby wanted a big dog. I personally am a fan of the teeny tiny itty bitty's, but I agreed that we could have her. Given at the time we were renting a home with a back yard, and I had no idea that at one point we would be moving back into an apartment. Ughh. Anyway, we got her right before Christmas, and we were learning all the little kinks about her. At first she just slept all the time like puppies do, and that was nice. However, that stage did not last long, and soon she became the WILD Sydney that we now love.
I have to admit that Sydney and I have had a love hate relationship these past two years. She is a very hyper breed of dog, and having her cooped inside an apartment for a year, was not really in her best interest, or mine. I mean literally the dog would hurdle the couches, and run laps in between rooms all while Bella was chasing her and barking. Annoying to say the least. Especially when I was big prego with Caleb. She even got away from me a few times while walking her back in my 37 week pregnant days. I was for sure on those days that she was dead meat, and bound to get hit by a car. However, she survived without a scratch, and was still hyper as H***.
Oh and just to let you know, the vet informed us that she is to stay immobile for 60 days. Haha, this is nearly impossible. She is still trying to jump, run, play etc. However, we are determined for her to heal properly so we do not have to take her to an orthopedic specialist for surgery. Seriously, our bank account can not afford that. So Sydney, please just be calm for once in your life.
