Sydney

Photobucket
Over the weekend we had to say goodbye to my mom's dog Sydney. We got Sydney when I was a sophomore in high school and she was one of the sweetest dogs we've ever had.

And the prettiest too.

It was so hard to say goodbye, but it was the right thing to do for our sweet girl.

Moving to Michigan was tough on her but she was such a trouper....this year was the first time she had ever been in the snow...and it didn't slow her down one bit.

Wrigley is sure going to miss his best friend. We love you Sydney.
