Scooter
12/7/2000 - 4/18/2015My dear little boy, I will meet you at the Rainbow Bridge. For now, just run and hunt and chase rabbits with Annie until we can all be together again. You were the kindest, gentlest little dog I have ever seen and the most stoic. You were amazing, my handsome little guy. I know I will never meet another dog like you. This week, cancer took you from me. Watching you over the last several months, trying to go on as if nothing was wrong until I would look at the horrible large tumors and watched them keep doubling in size, you taught me something about living life to the fullest no matter what. We tried everything to save you but it was not to be. You fought the good fight. I will miss you waiting by the front window for me. You have left a huge hole in my heart. Mattie and I miss you so much. Be at peace. I will love you forever, my little bud.Kathleen HarrisGlenview, IllinoisApril 20, 2015

Dear Little Scootie,
I feel like I can still connect to you here. It has been a long year without you. I still miss you so much. I miss seeing your happy little face and watching you run happily through the fields and hunting with Annie and then Mattie or playing with you favorite toys. I miss having you hug up against me at night. I hope you and Annie are having a wonderful time again running together and know you both are waiting for me. It comforts me knowing you are not in pain, that you are forever young and beautiful. I will love you forever, my little guy. Have fun and watch for me because one day I will be there to walk and play with you and Annie again.

Love, Mom

My Dear Littke Scootie,

Today is your birthday! I thought about you first this morning when I woke up and for most of the day. At least, last year on your birthday we didn't know yet that you had a cancerous tumor so we were able to spend your birthday happy and carefree. I watched your little movie where you were opening your presents and Mattie was helping, I hope you are having a fun day running and playing with Annie. You would have been 15 today. I still miss you so much. I will love you forever. Be happy my little bud until I see you again. All my love, Mom

My Dear Sweet Little Scootie,
It has been six months today since you went off to play with Annie at the Rainbow Bridge. I still miss you so much. Though, the hole in my heart you left has scarred over some, it will always be there. But now it feels like I am taking a little bit of you with me. I still can see you in the dog park running through the tall grasses happily wagging your tail when you caught the scent of some little critter. I can still feel you when the wind blows and the sun touches me on my face. You were such a loving and true companion for so long. I couldn't have asked for a better friend. You will always be my little Bud. I will love you forever. One day just as the legend says, you will look up from playing and you will see me coming to join you and Annie over the Rainbow Bridge. I love you Little Scootie. Mom

I still miss Scooter - he was such a beautiful and kind boy. He provided a sense of serenity, wisdom, even when he was just a pup.
You made the world a better place- and your spirit continues to do so...

I am so sorry that Scooter has left us, but the heavens are that much brighter now that he is up above watching over us! He will ALWAYS be remembered and dearly loved. He was the sweetest, kindest dog with the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen!Barb E - May 14, 2015
What a beautiful tribute to an absolutely beautiful boy! I love these pictures of him - his sweet personality just shines right through. Scooter truly could not have been more blessed to have such an amazing mom and life with you - and I know you were just as blessed to have him in your life. I feel honored to have met him and to have been there for you both at this difficult time. I just know that he is running free across the Rainbow Bridge now, feeling so good and enjoying all his favorite things. You are in my thoughts!Christie Comm - April 23, 2015
Love and light being sent your way!Stacy Shen (Doggie Dharma) - April 21, 2015
So sorry that your life has ended. But your life was greatly extended by the commitment your mom made to saving you from an early demise and you were able to enjoy many happy years with her. I hope that you have now met up with your old friend Annie and that you two are enjoying each other's company once again.Sherrell Bender - April 21, 2015
