Sydney is Sherlock’s mother.
Sydney was born November 19, 2009 to Virginia Labradoodles.
We lost her way too early, at 7 years old, to Water Intoxication on July 30, 2017.
She was doing what she loved, jumping in the pool and retrieving her toys. She was the only dog I knew that would swim underwater. Evidently she swallowed too much water. We didn’t know it at the time, It wasn’t until she was out of the water for awhile. She started to stagger, then basically collapsed. We rushed her to the Emergency Hospital but she stopped breathing half way to the hospital. They did CPR and put her on a respirator. Eventually they were able to get her heart started for only a short while, but not her breathing.
I didn’t know such a thing could happen.
Sydney was a great dog. I inherited her from my mother. She got a long with all dogs and she helped to train other dogs for our flyball team. She had two litters for a total of 7 puppies; she was a great mom. She loved flyball, swimming, hunting, digging and just hanging around with us. I am still heartbroken, but Sherlock is living in her foot steps.

Besides swimming, she loved to compete in Dock Diving and Flyball.
