In Loving Memory of Scout (formerly Carson)...

I first met Carson in 2002 at Petsmart, where he came with Marty every weekend to look for his furever home. I brought my son with me, then 7 years old, so we could help hold the dogs on leashes that were up for adoption. Finally one day our landlord gave us permission to have a dog, and we were able to bring Carson home! By then Marty had taught him to not be so mistrustful of people by giving him lots of love and attention; truly, she was his savior. We renamed him Scout because of his vigilance, intelligence, protectiveness and devotion. He was a magnificent, gentle, loving dog, who blessed us with his company for over 12 years. I cherish the memories of our daily hikes in the woods and meadows over those many, many years. I pray that he is happy and again running like the wind, as he so loved to do. Thank you, Scout, for teaching me how to explore, how to listen, how to love, and how to just BE. Happy trails to you and Little Bear always...


I didn't mention when I wrote the above memorial that my heart has been broken into a million pieces with the loss of both Scout and Little Bear in the last year (will post on Little Bear when I can upload a picture of him). Any words of comfort would be deeply appreciated. Also wanted to add my eternal thanks to Marty for having made it possible for me to adopt Scout so many years ago, and to those at Paws and Prayers who carry on this good work.

Hi, I just read your memory of Scout and I am in awe. I just lost my beloved Charlie Alexander, cat this past week. I found your memory of Scout to be uplifting as I morn my best friend. Good luck to you and Thank you for sharing.

I loved Scout too. His friends Freedom, Skye and Hennessy probably met him at the gate.

Thank you, Annette, for your kind comments. And Marty, I'm so glad you read my memorial! Thank you again for everything. I'm sure they're all romping and looking forward to seeing us again someday :)
