Arrival Story:
I rescued Scruffy from a local Humane Shelter here in Califormia. After visiting him three times and praying about if he was the right dog for our family, I rescued him on a stormy, rainy Feb. day with my son, Zachary. He, Scruffy was so happy and on his best behavior for weeks. In fact, the first two or three days he didn't even bark as he was really wanting a new home....also, he was stressed from being in the pound for eight days. After waiting 30 days for his previous owners to claim him, he was finally pronounced a BUTLER. He is micro chipped and we have him registered with the city of San Jose. We love this pooch and he's definitely a blessing from the Lord.

Scruffy lives in a home with a decent size backyard....lots of parks and in a lovely part of San Jose, CA. He was rescued from the Gilroy area. He must love garlic!

Scruffy to celebrate his third year with us...2/17/09

We adopted Scruffy almost three years ago already!! Time flies by when having a good time with your wonderful dog!!! Scruffy was about two years old when we adopted him as the vet stated he had all his adult teeth and that's generally around two years. Scruffy could be older but with the energy Scruffy has, I 'm sure it's pretty darn close. So that would place Scruffy around five years of age.

We're not sure how we are going to celebrate his birthday this year. I know I'll get Scruffy some Frosty Paws and a gift, of course a nice walk, but other than that we're not sure. The first year he got a really nice red hiking pack. This Christmas Scruffy got a lovely jacket which I really need to get a picture of him wearing. The weather has warmed up quite a bit so it's almost too warm for the jacket. Hopefully between today and Valentine's Day, I'll come up with something special for Scruff!!

Happy Birthday a little early Scruffy!!!




Scruffy has been with us Butlers for two years now!

Not sure if I already typed something similar on this Dogster site, but if not, here goes. Scruffy was adopted into our family on Feb. 17, 2006 and it's now 2008. We have been exceptionally pleased with his personality and nature. He is quite the dog! The children have grown so attached to him that my son refers to him as "BROTHER" at times. Cute huh?

Scruffy celebrated his birthday with a bath, yes, a bath to get him sparkling clean and fresh. Than we treated him to a cup of Frosty Paws. He received a bone and new toy. We had plans to go for a hike which would have really pleased Scruffy but ended up doing something else. The weather has not been too cooperative. I do plan to make this up to Scruffy and hope to capture some great pictures which I can post on this page. My daughter took the one of Scruffy with the confetti in his hair/on his head. Too cute!!! Very colorful!!

Happy Birthday My Wonderful Four Legged Friend!!!!


July 31st marked the passing of my first Dogster's Pup Pal,- DAISY

I'm sadden to hear of the loss of a wonderful pal, Daisy, to the horrible disease CANCER. I too have had my fight with it this year. My owner's had a tumor the size of a pea removed from my front right leg this past Dec. 2006 and I am proud to say, I am CANCER FREE to this day. Daisy however had a much more serious bout with the disease. I can't even spell the name yet alone pronounce it......let's just say it was nasty! I am so sorry for the short time Daisy had with her beloved owners but they gave their hearts and souls to making her happy and the exchange with mutual. I do not want to go on and on with my feelings as I know that life is unpredictable at times. I count my blessings with my beloved family who stoled my heart on Feb. 17, 2006. What I think I am trying to say is...."I am so sorry for Daisy's passing but do know she's out of pain." She is on the road to Rainbow Bridge.

I pray that the grief of her family is breif but heartfelt. There are dogs and there are DOGS. Daisy sounded to me that she was in the class of a DOG DOG.

Daisy, you will be missed!
