Bosco & Scooter

Ted weighed them and Bosco at 4 months is now 45 lbs compared to Scooter at 42 lbs.

Super Pup, part 1

Missy’s Beagle Lab cross is more the former than the latter. Scooter is fundamentally a pack dog. She’s been pack-less nearly all her life. That is not the best situation for a Beagle brain. It has her more nervous than she would be in her natural habitat.

I am more attracted to dogs of […]

Scooter’s state

July 8, 2016 Scooter’s near death disaster. This may say the author is Ted but only the bottom three photos with captions. This is my story. Ted handled the crises well and wrote his story and posted it here

Ted is kicking himself for not having removed the cause before today. Yesterday, there was […]

first aid failure

I tested our first aid supplies, phone list, land-line telephone, backup telephone, radio network and found all of them wanting.

Many details to attend to and some significant repairs in planning/function.

A dog guest and Scooter were having a gay old time when she somehow impaled herself on a steel post I had tried to […]

Dog Grooming Aid

It takes two people to groom Scooter’s nails because she is so skittish. I was hoping that now, after a year, she would have improved. Indeed she has, however, nails are still difficult.

So, how do professionals do it? Do they call and ask friends to come over and help hold the dog? Do they […]

Scooter’s glove & slipper

These are from April 23rd.

Darling, adorable, sweet, affectionate Scooter does have a dark side. She does sometimes decide to chew on things we would rather she did not chew on. We quickly learned … and she quickly learned “Get in your cave” where she must stay while we are away.

Scooter is […]

Scooter’s Adventures

Scooter has been growing in confidence every day. We are enjoying her immensely!

When we both had to be gone for a few hours I loaded her Kong with peanut butter and treats. Unfortunately, and fortunately, at some point she needed to relieve herself and we came home to a very-happy-to-see-us Scooter. […]

Scooter or Hoover?

Scooter eats like a pack animal, Ted says. I tried feeding her one, two or three kibble from my hand and lengthened her consumption from 15 seconds to five minutes, but who can do that twice a day? Carol suggested that putting balls in her bowl would slow her down and it does […]

Scooter, second day

Scooter ia adapting beautifully! We could not be happier. I first heard her bark when she spotted Ted in our living room while she and I were outside in the light of the windows for the final potty break. She hasn’t needed to bark since.

She alternates between walks, visits to our private dog […]
