UP Date 5/18/2017 Hi Scooter I did not know I would be updating you so soon, Corona knee is, a definitely getting better today. I was in the backyard with Corona, and Corona ran a bird down not bad concerting Corona is 12 years old with a repaired knee. I have been gradual letting Corona Off Lease been a little reluctance to let Corona run, time to let Corona be a crazy dog again and run and run. I heard the bird scream, I got Corona off the bird, put Corona in the house and went to check on the little bird, the bird was still alive but breathing heavy, I blew some air in the birds mouth to see if I could help, I told the bird I am sorry and shortly you will be flying on the rainbow bridge. I told the bird to look up a crazy dog Named Scooter. I said he is not hard to find him, he has a lot of friends. Cats, Dogs, Birds, Chickens. Talk to you latter.

Nov 1st update Hi Scooter Maple the cat is back hidden in the back room the new forever home did not work out. The two cat he had did not like Maple, they were both de-clawed and keep beating up Maple, and maple is not de-clawed and choses not to use them, maple would run and hide under his bed. So I have maple back. So its going to limit my options, try to find Maple a new home to some that does not have a cat and wants on or a home with only one cat so he will not get ganged up, or a home with a cat friendly dog.
Seen patty today at the her new home and her dog Sonny is adjusting to the new home. The gang says they miss you.
October 2015 update.
Scooter you will not believe this when Bob ask me to help out with Patty and Sonny if something happened to him he forgot to tell me about the cat Maple. With Patty loosing her house and going into a Townhouse she can have only one pet. I had a lot of friends trying to find Maple a home. Patty finally had to move out from her home a Month ago. So I fostered Maple in the back room hidden from four dogs. I sent out a lot of Kitty Videos on my cell phone to friends. Maple is a special cat , the most gentle cat a dog groomer has ever seen, likes Kitty baths, likes water. I did get maple in a home with two other cats its been over a week if it does not work out I will get maple back and try again. I will keep you informed. Miss you.
Hi Scooter remember today is you Birthday, and mine also ( March 1st ). The gang and I miss you. Everything is well except missing you. I am going to be taking care of another Dog. A close friend of mine passed away and his Wife will be losing her house. We did find her a couple of apartment's that will accept dogs up to 75 Lbs. The Dog name is Sonny ( Sonny is a Girl ). She will not be able to afford the VET Bills, Sonny has the same problem you had bad allergies , Sonny goes to the same Vet as the gang. I will take care of Sonny's health concerns. Patty will not be able to take Sonny out for a walk to go. I only live 1/2 Mile from the apartment that's the plan If we can get Patty in an apartment close to me. I will keep you posted. July 2015 Up date Scooter Patty's Daughter talked her into going with her in a Town House I will not have to go over to walk Sonny but will still take him to the VET. I hope it works out.
Love you always George and the gang.
Saturday May 10th 2014 . I just lost my little Buddy Scooter ( a Beagle ) tonight in my arms! In fact I was going to My Vets Office Monday next week and say it is time to let go, I knew time was coming short I have been putting pictures together to put on Rainbow Bridge. Awhile back Scooter started to have some seizures, My Vet thought he may have a brain tumor as he lost use of one of his rear legs, but did not think it was appropriate to do any test as he was going on 16 Years old, and also had Kinney problems. He was not in any pain was he was on medication for pain for his arthritis. And was getting around with three legs a little bit. I wanted to try to get Scooter to make it to March 1st as that was his birthday and also my birthday! What's the odds of that? My Vet gave him medications for seizures, but I knocked him out. I did some research for seizures and changed his diet to a cooked diet and his seizures stopped for three months. He was having problems walking so I Bought him a K9 cart, it turned out he did not have enough strength in his front legs, Instead of buying the Front wheel Kit, I knew he was not going to be using the K9 Cart long term, So I made my own front support. He got around great until a couple of days ago; When he had his first seizure in three months that lasted 30 minutes I put him back on the seizure medication; the medication was again knocking him out, he started going downhill. Even though Scooter only used the cart for a few months it will be going to good use. I am going to donate it to the Medina Ohio SPCA. I found Scooter on Pet finder I had lost another Beagle I named Hobo. I found when he was a pup. Hobo actually found me, he was chasing my truck down a road; I stopped opened the door and he jumped in If you want to read the rest of Hobo's story it's on SRDOGS.com they are no longer maintain the site. Down the road I am going to put him on Rainbow Bridge too. Hobo when he turned 16 he could no longer walk. How Scooter got his name, when he was a year old and was hit by a car and the SPCA nursed him back to health and he was on a K9 cart until his hips healed. I adopted him when he was one and a half years old.
When I adopted him the first week Jan 2000, I was opening the front door to get the mail and Scooter shot out the door. My street is not that busy but down the road is a very busy main road, So I had to think quick and get out the door after him; the problem was there was six inches of snow and I was in my socks. I found him and ran back home yelling my feet are cold.
After that incident I got him in obedience training to sit stay. If you check the photo below ( I should not tell you that now I haven't got to that point in my life ) I am good at teaching sit stay and my group is good at it.
The first time We left Scooter home alone for a few hours he grabbed the table cloth off the table and pulled everything off the table. When we arrived home I yelled at Scooter he was laying across the other side of the room shaking, I sat on the floor and talked to him for thirty Minutes saying if you come over to me I will not hit you. He finally crawled on the floor over to me and we had a talk. A couple of weeks before I got Scooter I lost my Beagle Hobo he was also 16 years old when he passed. Hobo's urn on the table and ended up on the floor when scooter pulled everything off , If the urn would have broken ( it did not ) I would have had to get the dust buster. I then moved Hobos; urn to a safer location.
But another time he pulled over a kitchen on the floor. But I was ready I had setup a Video camera and taped him when we were not at home. So Scooter and I watched the video and had a little talk.
Scooter must of liked to do house work, In the dining room closet was a big Kerby Sweeper; behind the sweeper was my bag I would take to work. With newspaper to read on break or during lunch, inside the bag I would usually have some cookies to snack on. We would be gone for a while and come home and find the Kirby in the middle of the dining room and my bag for work out of the closet and my cookies gone! Finally had to put a lock on it.
On to the building of my support group!
But have to go on to ( Paul Harvy ) " The rest of the story". Scooter and myself did a lot of walking the local parks. In 2006 we found a stray black lab ( picture below ) with tags but no name or phone number. It was Easter Weekend I was not going to be able to find out the owners name until the following Tuesday when the Dog Pound would be open. We took the lab home and Scooter said can we keep her? I said no, but we will go Local Angles for Animals and adopted Corona a Beagle Pointer. Scooter, Corona and myself did a lot of walking at the parks over the years. Scooter was the smartest dog I ever had. One day he proved that when walking in the park, I usually park at the Pioneer Pavilion parking lot but it was closed, so I parked up the road at the Lower Bears Den parking lot and walked on the other side of the dam. When it was time to go home we are walking to the parking lot and Scooter sat down in the middle of an intersection, I said come on Scooter lets go to truck! He gets up and starts to pull up the other road, then I said opps; I parked in another lot. Then Scooter said when we walk on the right side of the Dam we park at the Lower Bears Den parking lot, how many times have you been here George!
I thought I was done but I remembered another story; there's more in my brain, but this one is probably One of the best stories. I was walking Scooter and Corona by a local Elementary School, and Scooter picked up a dead road kill Squirrel and would not leave it go. I tried tickling him he was very ticklish. At the School there were parents waiting in front of the school to pick up their children. One of the Mothers must have thought I was hitting my dog. She walked over and said can I help you, I said yes. I will hold onto my dog and you can try to pull the road kill squirrel out of his mouth, She said. " No I can't " and walked away back to the group of parents. I did get the Squirrel out of Scooters mouth; put it in a plastic bag. When I walked past the parents, I held the bag up and they applauded.
Next family update winter 2011 I was woken up at 5:30am by two Beagles crying and needing a home and needing some minor medical care. ( I am a dog magnet ). At that point I was walking Corona and Scooter separately because Scooter could still go on walks but not for miles as we did before. The Beagles I found pictures below the thin one- Penny. The chubby one Bud ( they could be father daughter, brother and sister ) When we go the McDonalds at the Drive through I am ask a lot if there twins, The Tan and white one Corona. The poodle I am not there yet. I walked Scooter first, then Corona, Bud and Penny together that was fun.
The poodle; Last summer showed up at my house ( like I said a Dog Magnet ), Full of fleas hair all matted up, I vetted the dog for the fleas and shots; Vet put the dog on face book, flyers up. ( I did not think I wanted to keep him and have five dogs. I told My Vet when I decided to keep the Bud and Penny in a couple of years I will be down to three dogs when scooter passes.
After a month no one was looking for the poodle I decided to keep because he fit it ( check out the chair photo it was not staged ). My Vet said the Idea I had was going down to three dogs did not work very well. The poodles name is Nate.
Back to the recent present March 1st Scooter Birthday, and my Birthday is also March 1st we had a birthday party for Scooter and my group. I baked a Doggy Birthday cake and homemade frosty paws.
I am said I lost my little buddy, I will miss my little buddy I have not cried the entire time typing this out because it was the good times, I am crying now because it's getting close to the end. With endings there are new beginnings. Something I have not done in awhile is taking dogs for long walks in the park, I have been walking shorter walks around where I live so as not to have too much time away from scooter.
I do have a good support with my other dogs, they need me and I need them.
PS We did have Funeral Service, I had all the dogs pay there last respect, and showed them when I put Scooter in a box, so they know he is not coming back. I keep him going as long as I could.
Scooter wait for me at Rainbow Bridge'
Mom go over to Rainbow Bridge introduce Scooter to the other family dogs up there. My First Dog Ruffy, Cindy, Francine named after Mom, and Hobo.
The new beginning and never know if another dog down the road shows up needing help. Should of added in a cat needing a home never would of imagined a cat in this dog only home!
