My dad got Scooby from a lady where he was exterminating bugs. Her dog, (Scooby's mom) had a few puppies and the lady did not want them, so she asked my dad to exterminate them. Of course, my father could not do that to poor little puppies (or any animal) so he ended up taking them out of there, giving a few away to good homes, and keeping one for us. She was adorable and I was so excited to get her. I was an only child, so she was even more special to me....she was my playmate and we grew up and older together. She had moved to 2 other new houses with us, seen many different changes, but still remained a wonderful dog. She had been sick for a while and the veterinarian told my mom that he thought Scooby had parvo. Not to be lighthearted, but she outlived the veterinarian who told us that. Her sickness seemed to come and go so we still enjoyed many good times together. Last year, I was getting ready for my wedding, and I knew the end was coming. I told  her I loved her a few times, and then got married and went on my honeymoon. About a month later, my parents told me they  had to put her to sleep. It was one of the hardest things I had been through at that point in my life. It was like losing a sibling. Her eyesite had completely gone, her hearing was gone as well, she lost control of her bowels, and would just lay and whimper all the time. My parents said it was so hard to do, but they knew she wasn't really living. They buried her in their backyard with a headstone that my dad made saying, "Scooby Forever in Our Hearts 1986-June2002" A sweet testiment to such a sweet little girl. She was be forever missed.


My husband and I adopted a schnauzer mix, Buddy, from a local animal rescue about 2 weeks before Scooby had passed. I won't say it made it easier because most of the time when I would look at him, I would just start crying, but in time, it helped to ease the pain for both me and my parents. They were both lost without her, especially since my dad was the one who  brought her home. She was his buddy...always sleeping by him on the living room floor and following him around everywhere. I see his face light up when they come over to visit. Buddy is his buddy now....He will never replace Scooby, but like people, they all have different personalities & quirks, and I cannot imagine life without him.
