I always assumed I would have plenty of time to do this. Now Dogster is going away. Scooter and the rest of the family pack will no longer have their very own profile pages.
I wanted to take the time to write about Scooter and what she has meant to me. She came into my life when I was grieving the loss of Floppy. It was the first time in my life I didn't have a dog and I wanted a puppy who could occupy my time, a puppy I could raise and love. I never considered a beagle before, but after doing research, a beagle seemed like the right breed for me.
Scooter was in a litter of three. In fact she looks a lot like her mom Jeter. She was named after a famous new york yankee baseball player. Scooter has been a handful from day one. From the time she was a puppy, she would play and play and then she would stop really sudden and if you didn't snatch her up and take her out, she would pee right there on the floor. She loved chewing on things and destroying stuffies. She still likes the destroying stuffies part, especially the squeaker.
I wouldn't say Scooter is a perfect dog. There are times I want to strangle her. She is pretty selfish and I am sure my spoiling made her that way. I take full responsibility. She can be food aggressive and she learned to inhale her food and not chew it. Not so smart Scooter! Thankfully it has never gotten her into trouble. She could eat a bowl in 15 seconds. Check her out video if you want to see it.
I believe she does things she knows she's not supposed to do but she does it anyway because she knows after I'm mad for a minute, I end up loving her all over again. Again, my fault.
Scooter has never been affectionate. She never gives kisses. BUT you know she loves you because that tail will wag 100 mph. She bows and barks at ya and she will run over to get those 5 seconds of love before she decides she has better things to do. When she's sick, she wants to be right there with you though. She would never admit but you can tell she loves you.
Anyway, I basically just want to say that I love Scooter with all my heart. She is an amazing little beagle. She has been with us since she was 10 weeks old. She turns 10 in two months. She is and always will be my baby. A lot of people say they can tell Scooter is my favorite. I try not to have favorites because I really do love all my animals. I think it's because I got scooter when she was a puppy. Believe me...she gives me the most headaches, she drives me crazier than anyone and yet somehow she just has this special place with me. I love you Scooter bug....dooter dooter dooter....queen of the world. Always.....
Big hugs, Scooter!
Sending you BIG hugs and LOTS of LOVE
