Chronicling the life of Clayton, Spenser and Scooter
March 16, 2007
Our friends and dogsitters Courtney and Mike are going away next week
and we will take care of their beagles Tootsie and Buttercup. Buttercup is the
lemon girl who looks so much like Scooter, I would often get them mixed up.
It's going to be a little tough but we're looking forward to the beagle energy
they bring. Courtney wrote me last night talking about beaglesitting and Scooter.
"When you opened the door at your house, all the beagles would be stepping on one another barking like crazy and making for a difficult entrance. About 5 minutes later or so Scootie would walk in like "Oh hi, when did you get home?" There was a night with Scooter that we'll never forget. It was just on your last trip and he was an absolute nut job when we came home. He was running around like crazy up and down the stairs. It just serves as another example of how full and how happy his life was. He was as blessed to have you as you were blessed to have him."
My continued thanks to all who have written. Although it is hard not to cry when I read your notes, I cannot begin to tell you what comfort they bring. I plan to print each note and put them together in a binder, to keep along with a few other items which will remind us of Scooter. One of those is his stuffed dreidel (a gift from my friend Julia) which has lasted incredibly for several years and made its way into many of the DD photos. That toy was always in Scooter's mouth.
out in the yard the other day, faded but intact after our mild winter.
And he also loved his Uncle Bob, who with Aunt Rita travelled from
Massachusetts last weekend to visit their Scootie for the last time.
How we miss you, Scooter.
