Large and boistrous dogs
Around the Basin
Jump through arms, catching the ball, high five, spin
When Scamp was a puppy he was left outside the RSPCA overnight in a box. When I was 10 years old we happened to be looking for our first dog and tried the RSPCA, when we saw him and played with him we knew he was the dog for us, he was fetching his toys when we threw them and everything and we went to say hello to the puppy next to him he stuck his nose in the cage and barked as if to say 'Excuse me, you do realize you're not leaving here without me, right?' and that was it, Scamp went home with us.
As of 2nd August 2013 Scamp no longer lives with me as I no longer live with my mother who owns him, I still see him occasionally and miss him every day.
The ball FANATIC

Last month I started to write about Scamp and Violet I wanted to write down my memories of both of them so I could read back on them in the years to come, to ensure I don't forget anything, here is a snippet and one of my favorite memories of Scamp.
The Retarding Basin is now our most common walk, Scamp has two friends there, Basil an Old English Sheepdog who is a year older then Scamp and Bonnie a Labrador who is a year older then that and their owner Karen is always happy to chat. I think her dogs encouraged Scamp to swim after 7 or 8 years of hardly swimming at all he suddenly loved it.
Which reminds me of the time in Warrandyte where suddenly he leapt into the water after the ducks which were being fed by a group of families and an Asian tourist group. He scared the absolute crap out of a child (literally I believe…) and chased the ducks for 15 minuets pretty much focusing on the one duck in an attempt to wear it down, Scamp had never done this before. I took photos while mum stressed out and the children cheered him on whilst their parents and the tourists laughed and commented on the gutsy little dog who was so damned determined he was having duck that night.
Eventually he began to run out of steam and to the amusement of everyone snapped up some of the bread that had been thrown in the water for the ducks by now mum was pleading with me to get him out before he drowned and it was much later I was finally able to coax him out. I have a feeling Scamp’s story may have made it all the way to Japan and he was probably the highlight of everyone’s trip to the river… he was like a tiny Jaws.

Hi I'm Scamp and I'm the most important thing in the world, so stop whatever you're doing and throw the ball for me. I'm fairly short when compared to a human but as far as I'm concerned there is no dog bigger then me. Apparently that's a thing called Little Dog Syndrome, except I'm not little you see, I'm as fearless and as large as any Irish Wolfhound.
When I was a pup I was abandoned in a box outside a dog shelter, I don't understand why but apparently I was unwanted, when I found the next morning I was brought inside by some kind people and cared for until one day a family came along to visit me... I wasn't missing me chance, I was tired of that cage and there were children in this family to play with, I decided they were having me, whether they wanted me or not. My persistence paid off.
I was given the name Scamp and here I am 8 years later, now there's a overgrown puppy named Violet living with me but I'M THE BOSS, no dog will ever be boss over me. Never.
So that's my life in a few words, now throw the ball.
