1-31-06 Hey there daddy's lil buddy...I just finished putting the lights up on your shelves, i hope you like them..it was too dark when momma had the living room light off, and we couldn't see your lil "shrine" and pictures, soo i installed those lights soo we can always see you...I kiss your box everyday when I leave, get home and before bed each night..but you know me, sometimes i'll leave without doing it, get halfway to work and remember, then i feel bad for forgetting to kiss you bye..Boogie, i miss you soo much, and I think I have finally come to terms that I did the right thing by you...I would take any and all your pain and suffering on my shoulders to keep it from you everyday, i loved you that much, my buddy, my babyboy, my best friend...the house seems lonely without you greeting me everyday..sissy tries to fill the void that i now have, but she just can't...kitty is still kitty, except now he only has me to growl at instead of me and you...hee hee..i don't know how, but there are still tumbleweeds of your hair rolling across the kitchen floor, haa, everyone used to act as though your constant shedding of your white fur was an annoyance, but me an momma see it as boogie will always be around in some way, as your fur has been on trips with us, to work, everywhere we go, a lil bit of you goes with us...we got rid of your pillow the other day, sissy hasn't stepped foot on it since you been gone, and momma cried when we did....I'm trying to be strong, but it gets hard when i'm talking to you.. i'm better now that we have you on your shelf, cause your still here, ya just can't give me my kissies that i loved soo much....Boo, i love you more than i can possibly say or write, and i think you knew that too, and i miss you a ton...i'll see you again one day buddy, thats a promise, and i love you!!
daddy

2-14-06
hey there birthday boy!!! well, it's been exactly one month since you left us, and not a day goes by that i don't think about you..I have come to terms with letting you go, knowing that i did the right thing..after reading some of the articles here on rainbow bridge, i realized that you really weren't that happy, even though you tried your best to not show it...I'm glad your happy again, playing with new friends or just relaxing like you liked to do..biscuit had a tough time a few weeks ago, i think she finally realized you weren't coming back...she pouted all day long, wouldn't get outta bed, and actually tried to bite mommy..can you believe that? sissy actually got mad at mommy!! we know that she was just depressed from missing her brother though..all our family and friends finally have found out about you, and they were all soo supportive too...they all loved you and were saddened that you were gone....I really, really miss you boogie, and i'm glad and honored to gotten to spend half my life with you, and i thank you for being such a good friend and buddy to me...i love you spank, now and forever.....daddy

3-14-06
Hey there buddy, it's now been 2 months since you left us, and it still seems unreal that your gone..we swear we hear you clicking your nails across the tile floor, and sissy had her head behind the blinds like you used to do..the backyard light wasn't on, soo i dunno what she was looking at...maybe it was you? I still kiss you everyday ya know, my love for you hasn;t faded one lil' bit...i do miss you a ton cause sissy hangs out with mommy, and monkitty just kinda hangs by himself, soo i really don't have that special bond with them like i did with you...I have been thinking about getting myself another dog, not to replace you, and not to help me get over you, cause i don't ever wanna get over the fact that your gone, but i am thinking about maybe getting myself a boxer, ya know, a dog totally different from you...i just miss having that bond that me an you shared, and i hope you don;t mind..i don't know when i'll get one, but i just wanted to tell you that i'm thinking about it..i hope your having fun at the rainbow bridge...oh yea, we watched some old movies from like 8 yrs ago, and you were soo silly...running around the yard like a madman, i forgotten how fast you were and how much you wagged..it's been awhile since we saw that side of you, damn that old age, huh??? well boo, daddy loves you with all his heart, and thinks about you everyday...i miss you boogie!! love ya now and 4ever, daddy

4-14-06
well, today marks the 3rd month you been gone buddy, and i still miss you like crazy....i'm really really hating this date, the 14th, cause 1st it was you passing on, and now today, we found out about kyle...we found out he has a brain tumor...soo the 14th is just a lousy horrible day, and i hate it!! you know that kyle's a big strong healthy kid, and i think he's gonna get through this, but ya never know...the ironic thing is that he's the same age as you were too...sucks...just makes today an even sadder day in the ol' scoggins household, ya know? plus, we found out a few weeks ago, that your uncle donnie has got diabetes!! what the hell have we done to deserve all these crappy things happening to us this year?? well, i have lost 17 pounds since i last talked to ya, soo wahoo to me!! yea, i know, you could care less, haa, you just wanna know if sissy is getting my last bite of food like you used to.....the answer is no, i told you i wasn't gonna give her your piece, soo i eat it myself....its funny though, we notice some things that sissy NEVER did when you where around, but you taught her to do now..like when we let her outside to go potty, she busts through the door like you used to..it's pretty funny, cause she never would do that before, she always waited for you to open it for her...she also props her head up on the window sill and looks out the window like you used to do...but we did figure something out, you lil sneaky rascal, we were blaming her for knockin over the garbage on those few days it happened, thinking you couldn't do it...yea right!! you played us good!! the trash hasn't been touched since you been gone, soo it was you the whole time!!! haaaaa....daddies boy was soo smart an sneaky!!! you knew we'd blame her too!!3 months later, and we still laugh at the things you did...silly boy...well spanky, say a lil prayer for kyle an your uncle donnie, and talk to your good buddy up there in doggy heaven to take care of them...i love you boogie, and i'm thinkin about you today as always...i miss you real bad too...talk to ya soon buddy!!
love daddy

05-14-06
Hey there daddy's boy!! Well, its been 4 months today, and it never gets any easier..I still miss you everyday, but I know your having fun at the bridge playing with the other dogs..I'm still thinking of getting another dog, a boxer...biscuit seems awfully lonely since you been gone, and I know I have been too, so maybe it'll do us both some good. You wanna hear something weird? you know how you were always scared of storms, and sissy could care less, well, ever since you been gone, she has been a scared lil girl...she follows me around like you did when its storming..maybe she wasn't scared when you were here because she felt like you protected her from them, even though you were always scared of them? she acts more like you everyday, you did a great job of raising her, boogie...remember me telling you about kyle? well, he's taking meds that hopefully will help him live normally, and we hope the tumor doesn't grow anymore, or they will have to remove it, which won't be good...soo, keep talking to god up there for us, and tell him to take care of kyle for me....well spanky, remember that i love you and miss you terribly, and will hug that neck again one day... I love ya boo!!
daddy

6-14-06
Hiya Boo, it's been 5 loooong months now, and it never gets easier, why is that? there are days when i'm having a bad day, and really really miss petting you, or talkin to you or even kissin you, ya know? i have had a dog of my own since i was young, 1st columbo, then you, and it sucks without you here, it really does. sissy and monkey are here, but its totally not the same.i wanna get another puppy, definately a boxer, i feel i need that companionship, but i'm afraid it'll hurt skeeter since he's blind, he'll just get run over by such a bigger dog...i took my pharmacy test today, i failed...scored a 60, needed a 70..not too bad considering i ran outta time and guessed on the last 10, and didnt study, plus, being that today is your anniversary, i just couldn't focus good..well, you did a great job talking to god about kyle for us, apparently his tumor is gone?? they can't explain it?? but i can, i told everyone that you talked to god for us, and even god can't resist you....so, he healed kyle...you are still such a good boy spanky, and i love you sooo much...i still kiss ya everyday except for when i forget, and you know my horrible memory..oh, monkey hurt his back leg, we think sissy may of ran him over, you know how she gets when you mention potty, shes like a bullet, anyways, he has a torn ligament but no fractures..he just walks with it up in the air, and won't put any pressure on it, poor lil guy....well buddy, i'll let ya get back to playin with your pals at the bridge, and i'll talk to ya soon...i love you and miss my bestest buddy!!!
love always,
daddy

7-14-2006
Hiya my bestest buddy. 6 months have gone by now, wow, 6 looong months without you. But not really without you, because you are here, in my heart, and on your shelf. I miss you like crazy, and think about you every day. I bought new blinds in the kitchen yesterday because you know how you and sissy always stuck your head through them to look out, well, mostly sissy, you always went behind the blinds like a good boy, but she broke them, so I bought new ones. The pool looks great, your daddy finally got the hang of keeping it blue and clear. Pap-paw bought a new car from uncle donnie and is going to be moving out soon, so is paula. Uncle donnie is doing good, he's lost alot of weight, not as skinny as me though..haaa...i'm still hovering around 207, can't seem to hit 205 for nothing. Kyle's tumor never went away, they were wrong, but I think he's doing pretty good. I went up to see uncle donnie, betty, jenn and mammaw last month. We had fun, uncle donnie got drunk, it was a riot..hmmm, what else? oh yea, skeeter didn't have a torn ligament in his leg, he had a huge gash, and they put 4 staples in his back leg, and shaved the knots off of him. He had them out last week and is doing much better, although he still annoys the heck outta me with his constant growling at me everytime I walk in the room. Anyways, take care boo, and I'll talk to ya soon. I love you now and forever, you'll always be with me and in my heart. I LOVE YOU!!
daddy

08-14-2006
Hey there my sunshine!! Yet another month has gone by since you went to play at the rainbow bridge, and it still doesn't get any easier. I been having alot of stress on me lately about alot of things, and I really could use your neck to hug on at times, ya know. I think about you just about everyday, and still kiss you almost everyday too. Some days I just have soo much on my mind that I may forget, but most days you get your kiss. I wish I could get your sweet kissies that you loved to give me. I'm still hovering around 207-210 in weight, and hopefully one day I'll make it to 205-200. Sissy has been paying a lil' more attention to me lately, and I'm not sure why? I tell her she's wanting to come over to the "dark side" when she comes and lays around me...She could never even remotely take your place though, and I don't think any other dog ever could. I still will get me another dog, just not yet, only when the time is right. Not an eventful month boo, just a stressful one. I love you just as much as always, and I'll talk to ya soon, daddies lil buddy....I LOVE AN MISS YOU!!!
daddy

daddy

12-23-2006
hi there my bestest buddy in the whole wide world!!
i'm sorry i'm late yet again, but its been a hectic and extremely busy month...my store is just insanely busy and im on a stretch of 13 days in a row right now....you know that i kiss ya every single day when i leave though, ya always put a smile on my face...uncle donnie reminded me that i haven't wrote you and asked me if i forgot...silly him, i could NEVER forget my boogie..you will be with me for all eternity, always..i plan on having your box in my hand when i'm laid to rest, to guarentee that! its been just a very tough year for me, no doubt the hardest in my life now with you gone too...some days are good, some days just suck...i don't have all the answers like i used to before, sometimes i just don't know what to do in life anymore, ya know? how can one day be pretty good and the next one be twice as bad? how does that happen? i used to be the guy people looked up to, the guy who knew everything and who was 100% in control of all that was around me, yet now i feel unsure of things, i feel i don't have all the answers anymore...i don't mean to be bringing my problems to you boo, but maybe you'll be able to shed some light on things for me, give me some clarity...you are, afterall, my rock....even now, almost a year later, you mean the world to me, and i miss you somethin awfull...i can't believe i still can cry when i write to you....whatta wimp your daddy is...well, i wrapped up some treats for your brother an sister to open on christmas from you, so im sure that'll make them happy...mommy sends her love and i hope you get lots of treats from santa in 2 days!!
i love you boogie, more than ever...
merry christmas sunshine!!
love, daddy

12-30-06

things around the house are so sad lately, i wish you were still around to bring that brightness you brought to me each and every day! there will never be another boogie. at least i get to see your funny pictures i have everywhere which helps put a huge smile on my face. boo momma loves you with all her heart. xoxo

1-14-07
Hi my special boy. Today is exactly 1 year since you left us, and i still miss you like crazy. I'm focussing on all the fun, wacky, silly things you have done over the years and trying not to be sad, but its hard. Last year was the worst of my life, but it wasn't totally bad because i got to spend 14 days of that year with you at least..I'm going to try and keep this short so mommy has room to write you, but just know i love you dearly, and still cry over you..i hope your having fun playing today and remember, i'll see ya again one day....
I love you and miss you!!

daddy

4-23-2010
Hey daddies boy...as im sure you are aware of, Skeeter joined you at the rainbow bridge...Im sure the 1st thing you heard was him growling at you as he was walking over the bridge...He can see again, and can get all worked up again, without having a seizure, soo im sure he has been growling at you every day he sees you....uncle donnie and me put hardwood floors down in the living room, and sissy doesn't like them...she has a hard time walking on carpet, let alone those floors.....Tyson dont like em either....We have Jack staying with us, tyson loves him, and he is a really sweet dog, he reminds us of you alot....he sleeps with me now too at night.....he still dont listen very well, like you did, but hes a good boy....im getting you new lights for your shelf, yours are bad, and need new ones....im glad they made it where i can write you more....daddy misses his buddy, and still thinks about ya lots.....love ya boogie
daddy

1-14-2011
Hey there Spanky,
5 years! wow, I can't believe you been gone 5 years.....
As you are already aware, your beloved Bissie has arrived at the bridge, and I know it makes you sad that she has passed, I know you have really missed you sister...I bet you gave her lots of kisses, and she has prolly been in your ear with her nose like she used to always do to you...Now you, Skeeter, and Biscuit are all back together again.....Bissie has been really struggling for awhile, it was kinda like the same struggles you went thru, which really bothered me because it was like me having to watch you struggle all over again....I miss her, but I'm thankful she don't hurt anymore.....Things are rough since you been gone, everyone seems to be sad and depressed... We got alot of snow this week, it reminded me of how much you loved digging your nose in it...It's amazing to me, that here it is, 5 years later, and I still cry when I write to you....People don't really seem to understand but I still really miss you, and would give anything to be able to hug you right now....I will be adding Bissie to the rainbow bridge site, and prolly Skeeter too, soo everyone can see their page too...I'm gonna go for now, please growl at Skeeter for me, and take care of your little sister like you used too.....Boogie, I will always love an miss you!!
daddy

1-14-2014
Hey there Boogie...
Wow, its been 3 years since I have wrote to you on here...I'm sorry, thats not acceptable, but you know I still kiss ya when I leave everyday...As you know since you live here with me, we live in Cool Springs, still work at Walgreens, and I am remarried to Ashley....Im sure you see her, and laugh at how silly she is....We also have a baby girl, named Baylee, which Im fairly positive you have messed with her, as she sometimes looks above where you are and stares and smiles.....Maybe she sees you, or senses you are around? I'm a pretty lucky guy to have a daughter....She fills in that void that I had in my heart from when you left....Tyson tried, but he was more attached to mommy than he was to me, so when I moved, I let mommy keep him....He is happier there than he woulda been here with me....Mommy is doing good, as I chat with her from time to time....Ashley and I are going to try and have another kid, so Baylee has a playmate, like how you had Bissie....And when she is 3, I think Im going to take her to the pound to let her pick out a puppy of her own...I want her to have that relationship with a dog like I had with you, ya know? We also hope to move and possibly get a home of our home here in the next year, as I let mommy have our old house.....Wherever we move to, I'll make sure you have a nice cozy spot, like I always do....Have you seen Donnie's dog, Sapphire, playing on the bridge? She joined you last year, along with her brother Max....You never met them, but they were sweet dogs....Donnie was really sad for awhile when Sassy left to play at the bridge, much like I was when you left, but I think he's doing better now....He has a new dog, Achilles is his name, and he is HUGE....He also has Titan, who he rescued from down here....Anyways Spanky, daddy is gonna go for now, his lil' girl, miss baylee will be home soon.....Daddy loves you and misses you, even 8 years later.......Take care of Bissie, Skeeter, Doc, Venus, Max and Sassy....they are all good dogs...
love you!
daddy
