Our 6+ year old Old English Sheepdog Sylvia was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her left hind leg on November 4, 2010. On November 5, we made the decision to have the leg removed and go through a round of chemotherapy. The leg was amputated on Nov. 9, and Sylvia came home to begin recovery on Nov. 11.

Sweet Silly Sylvie, the Old English Sheepdog
Diagnosed with osteosarcoma 11/04/2010 at almost 7 years of age * Left hind leg amputated 11/09/2010 * Chemo on 12/10, 12/17, 01/10, 01/31
Sweet Sylvie's earthly journey ended on Nov. 3, 2011, one day short of a year since her diagnosis and 6 days short of her one-year ampuversary. Her family celebrates her life as a sheepdog – ever the puppy, ever silly, ever sweet – and are grateful for our 7 years together.
