Favorite Walk: Anywhere he could sniff new smells and see new people!
Best Tricks: Roger sat on his hindquarters forever, just watching us and patiently waiting for a bite.
Arrival Story: We had to let our little girl, Beardsley, go to the Bridge, and we were all very lonely. We looked at the newspapers online, the classified sections, and found one in the Syracuse paper. The puppies were located in Watertown, 3 hours away. We drove up; Roger grinned at us, and that was that!
Bio: Roger was a very small Scottie; weighing only 18 lbs. When he was born, his Mother didn't have enough milk in her faucet for Roger, so he was given goat's milk to help him survive. He was so dear, gentle, and sweet -- we just loved him to pieces. We are devastated at losing him so young...
Forums Motto: Roger -- The Most Unforgettable Scottie!
I am still out here, and missing you every day of my life. I have made a lot of videos about you....but my favorite is....
It says it all about how I miss you.
In all the years of my Scottie Life...none touched me as profoundly as you did. I continue to get the messages you send me at home....and I get all the pennies from Heaven that you drop on the ground for me.
You are next to me when I sleep, and I say goodnight to you every night when I kiss your picture. So, in many ways, you are still with me! Just not in the way I want you to be.
Some day we will be together again, and nothing will come between us again. The good news is that I can think about you and look at your pictures and videos and I don't cry every day. I realized you would not want me to be so sad...so I am trying my best to be strong and enjoy the time I have with Magic, Elliott and Shilo. Life is so short for all of us, Roggie. Thank you for spending most of your 8.25 years with me. I would do it all again, my Angel, you were worth the pain of my broken heart.
Sweet Dreams, Roggie....Always remember I love you.
My sweet baby.....I am soooo very sorry that we could not save your life. My life has never been the same since you left, and some days it is just unbearable.
But I know you are safe with An'GUS, Grandma, and all three of our Beardsley's!!! It's just so hard to not be able to hold you or stroke your fur...
That nice Mailman who gave you a biscuit when your tummy was sick....he remembers you and always puts 3 little milkbones on any packages he delivers. His name is Chris, and he never forgot you, Roggie. Anybody who met you will never forget you. You are truly the Most Unforgettable Scottish Terrier.
Your joy, your happiness...your fabulous sense of humor!!! You made everybody laugh...and we were blessed and honored to have you in our lives.
I have all the photos we took, Babydoll. And the videos -- every night I visit your videos and I get to remember you when you were happy and healthy. That is a good thing....thank you for being such a good boy for the camera.
My Angel, I will let you go because I know they are holding a birthday party for all the fur angels and tomorrow, August 17, will be your birthday. I am there with you, in spirit. But I am with you no matter what day, what hour...even if Heaven is Timeless...I am at your side....and one glorious day, my love, we will be together again.
I love you, Roger. I hope you know how much...it's endless and timeless and bigger than the universe.
Happy Birthday, Sweetie.
Your Forever Mama
P.S. I receive your messages every day, and I am so very grateful for each one. If I didn't get them anymore, it would break my heart.
You can never know the impact you made on my world. Even I didn't realize it...until you were gone. Your time was short in this world, but you made me a better person...more outgoing...and more aware of the shortness of the days we have with each other.
Munchkin, I feel you with me. I receive your messages, and I know you wait for me. Thank you for those messages. They always make me smile.
Sometimes I get so sad that you aren't here with me to take you on your beloved walkies, to go on errands, to take your pictures...and then I remembered a song that describes, exactly, how very happy I am that you lived your entire life with me...
I could have missed the pain, but I'd of had to miss The Dance. I wouldn't have missed that Dance for anything.
