Its been nearly 3 months since my Sidney lost his fight with life,eventually his heart just gave up.|
He had known for a few weeks that it was time to go!
When i first got Sid i had actually wanted a black Tibetan Terrier,but i saw him,he saw me,and that was that.
At the time i had so many problems in my life and even more to face and it probably wasnt the best time to take on Sid and sometimes i wish he had gone to a more secure home.
A not so good vet had mis-diagnosed a problem and operated on his knee and it was only about 6 months later that it appeared that his hip had been displaced and poor Sid had endured all that pain and suffering...they took what was left of his hip out!NOT A GREAT START.
On top of that my life was in complete turmoil.
Glad to say in the last 3 years things started to get better.
AND THERE WAS SID!
I had to leave him a few times with people..and he refused to eat.
He was completely and utterly devoted to me.
He was just beautiful,quiet,gentle and well mannered.
He was in and out of vets all his life and he just took it on the chin,unfortunately this last trip was one too many and his heart stopped,he took the responsibility of not putting me through having to put him to sleep.
I JUST KNEW IT...THAT WAS SID!
He loved the beach but more than that he adored the snow.
Despite his unsettled life he was amazing...calm,relaxed and so cool.
He made me address my life and gave me a responsibilty and showed me how to love.
He was never a dog who needed to be petted all the time he was just happy mingling,more human than dog i suspect.
Everyone who came into contact with him loved him and despite his back legs he loved life.
AND I LOVED HIM!!
The thing is we had managed to just get a little bit of security despite all our troubles and i lost him.
If you can ever describe a dog as noble and proud...then he was!
He knew the journey was over for him....no more vets..he left me to go it alone.
I will never forget my beautiful,kind funny Sidney.
HE WAS A GIFT FROM GOD!
