The Daily Digital Photo
Chronicling the life of Clayton and Spenser, with memories of Scooter
January 24, 2008
This photo is from a set I took in December of 2001 and that I rediscovered
looking through old photos on my (older) computer. Clayton was in the middle of
his first bout of meningitis, but we did not know it at the time. The initial
diagnosis was degenerative disc disease, treated with Prednisone and crate rest.
Seven weeks of crate rest. Fortunately I was at home, having been laid off
shortly after 9/11. Anyway, you can see the tie-out that he's on. He was basically
not allowed to do ANYTHING. I love this photo because Scooter is doing what he
did best, being a total space-cadet.
