I want to thank everyone at Petloss.com! I haven't visited this site for a long time. Last year, July 10th we had to put our little Yorkie, Scooter to sleep due to kidney failure...he was only 6. Many of you probably saw me on chat all day long...I was there as clydajo, Scooter's mom, or usually Jo. It's been almost a year now and I still cry every single day for my Scooter. I miss him horridly. It's like part of me died with him...but since all of you are here...you know that pain I speak of. All of a sudden, I quit going to the chat forums even though I wasn't better....3 kids getting married in one year will do that to you! I became quite busy, but the pain was always there when I went to bed and woke in the morning. My Scooter is the bird I see in the sky, the squirrel that runs up our trees and the bright star in the night. I don't know how to overcome this pain that I've experienced this year. But out of all of this....I met a dear friend on this site...Jan. She lost her beloved Mac the same day I lost Scooter. She lives in Florida and I live in Colorado. I've never met her in person, but her words of encouragement and concern are always there for me either when I'm crying about Scooter, or telling her about the latest wedding picture! My Scooter is on http://www.critters.com and http://www.rainbowbridge.com Please go visit with him and sign his guest book. I would love to meet you as well, so please feel free to write me: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you for listening to me. JO

I visited your page about Scooter, although I didn't see where to sign the book. Anyway.
That picture of Scooter tells it all, doesn't it? He looks like he's just looking for something to get into! And then I read his story; it describes exactly what I'd expect from looking at his picture.
A one year anniversary has got to be hard. I'm just coming up on 9 months. They are such a part of your life, and then God takes them back. Scooter had a good life with you, lived his little 5 pound Yorkie life large.
My prayers are with you as you mark his Bridge anniversary.
HAPPY ONE YEAR BRIDGE DAY, SCOOTER. MOLLY AT THE BRIDGE SAYS BRING ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND COME BY MOLLY'S FINE BISCUT SHOPPE FOR SPECIAL TREATS FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY!!!

Dear Sweet Molly's mom...First I want to thank you for visiting my Scooter on critters. I love it when people go see what a special guy he was...his life was just too short. Now coming on my first year without him...breaks my heart. I just went past his 7th birthday. I know Scooter is there tasting some of Mollys sweet biscuits...and playing in big green fields with Mac, Toby, Dollie, Molly and so many other friends. As you read, I loved that little guy so much and a huge part of my heart went with him. Thanks again for reading about him. When you scroll to the bottom of the first page it would say sign the guestbook. I hope you had the right Scooter...cause he weighed more than you mentioned. Scooter's first picture is of him asleep under a Christmas tree...I hope that you're feeling better and I know Molly would want you to take care of yourself. I know all too well how hard it is to say goodbye. My making that decision was the worst day of my life. Love to you from Scooter's mom..JO

Dear Jo, I visited your darling Scooter's Tribute on Critters.com and I have to tell you it was one the most moving I have ever read. My heart broke when you said "quit hiding now little guy". For a long time I told my beloved Mr. Meowgy "Ok, you can come back now". I had to smile at many of the things you said to your baby. Like how he was a California boy, but you took him to Colorado and he hated the snow! I was touched by all the little stories about your baby Scooter.
Dear Scooter, I hope you have a very Happy 1 year Bridge Day! Invite my Mr. Meowgy to your party, he loves parties. Let Mommy know you are alright, she misses you so. Donna, Mr. Meowgy's mom

Scooter is adorable. It just broke my heart to read his story. These Precious Angels fill our Hearts with so much Joy and when they leave the Joy leaves with them. My Precious Angel Christopher has been gone for over 15 months and I cry for him every day. My Heart will be broken for Eternity. I too called him my little guy. I will Love Christopher and Miss Him Forever. Big Hugs Georgeann Christopher's Mommy Forever My Precious Angel You Are My Man And I Love You Mommy

What a cute little face he had. You gave him a very nice memorium. Take care.

Your tribute to your beloved Scooter on Critters.com is simply beautiful and so touching. I can tell what a truly unique little terrier he was and how very deeply he is cherished and missed. I lost my belove little 16 year old terrier mix, Betsy, January 11, 2008 to dementia and muscle wasting and I miss her every single day. Terriers are such little angels....and entertainers! The dementia silenced my girl's precious "WooWooWoo" yodel and broke my heart forever. I know your Scooter and my Betsy are up there getting into all kinds of fun and mischief!! HAPPY 1ST YEAR BRIDGEDAY, BELOVED SCOOTER. HAVE A WONDERFUL CELEBRATION AT THE BRIDGE. COME VISIT YOUR MOM IN HER DREAMS. SHE MISSES YOU SO AND WANTS TO FEEL YOU NEAR HER, LITTLE ONE. Hugs, Melissa Betsy's forever mom
