From the animal orphanage
Our Scotty was a mixed breed (we were told part lab – part terrier, but who knows) who came from the Animal Orphanage. Just a round ball of fur.
And he grew…
that everyone loved. He was frequently found lying in the front yard to greet each person that walked by. Even strangers had a “Hello, Scotty!” as they passed by. Some even chose the route just so they could visit with him.After a bout with Lyme’s Disease, he suffered from joint pain especially in his front paws. Daily aspirin regiment helped for a long time but then it was on to Rimadyl. Later we covered all bare floors with rugs so he wouldn’t slip. Time and again we were confronted with the decision about the pain he was having and his quality of life. We talked with the vet. We waited. One day we woke up and his front paws were so swollen. We knew.
