goodbye, scout boy

Our dear Scout has passed away.


Goodbye, Scout Boy | iloveitallwithmonikawright.com


He had a relapse of the same ailments he had back in September and even after another stay at the Vet, IV's and antibiotics, he just couldn't kick it. So many tests were run, x-rays, and more. We even sent a sample off to UC Davis to have his DNA tested to rule out a genetic disorder common to Border Collies.

He stayed well for a few days and then quickly became ill again. Even a second round of antibiotics didn't help. And really, he didn't even want to take them. We couldn't even bribe him with bread, his favorite treat. 

Oh gosh, his puppy dog eyes. It hurt me to see him so sad. I think he gave up, knowing that he just couldn't beat it. He laid his snout on my lap, looked up at me, and we said our goodbye.

He loved life. He loved his girls. He loved everyone, really. 

This sweet boy that was born on Valentine's Day has been gone a week, but I couldn't quite get the courage to write about it.

Goodbye, Scout Boy.

Thanks for stopping in!

  1. I'm so, so sorry. I lost my Belle 30 years ago and I miss her as much today as I did the day after she left us. She was my first dog, and so very special for more than just being #1. I used to say she was more a loving sister to me than my own sisters because she didn't talk back, didn't argue, and loved me every minute of every day, no matter what.
    I know how you feel, and I'm sorry you have to go through it...

  8. Here I am in front of my computer crying over your loss as well as for all the pets I've lost in my lifetime. At least they were loved. taken care of, cherished, photographed, journaled and blogged about. So many others didn't even get one of those. He was a LUCKY Scout to spend his life as part of your family.
