Scrappy Doodlepip 30th November 2003 – 12th January 2020
Much loved, sorely missed – R.I.P Baby Gerty.
The Last Adventure.
Sadly today, Suze and l had to make the decision to let Scrappy go. We always knew it wouldn’t be the anal gland cancer that would spell her end – it would be the arthritis and the K9 dementia. In truth – it was the dementia that we had to release her from, her constant pacing and pacing nearly 20 hours a day was wrecking her little frail body. She was a fighter, oh my she was a fighter , but the pacing was causing her more harm and we couldn’t help her anymore – there was no medication and no magical wand.
But she had a lovely morning, she had a great walk, we were all there, with lots of sniffs, she had a mad five minutes, a marvelous breakfast of salmon and she saw me get my haircut, Mummy take a shower – but sadly the only time she could get a nice relaxing sleep was at the end.
We just wanted to let you all know and say thank you to you all for your support and friendship as you were Scrappy’s friends as well. I will write on Scrappy in due course.
Rory and Suzanne.
