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.

  1. Oh Rory and Suze, I’m so sorry. It’s made me cry because I know how much you loved her. You both have given her a life full of love and friendship, it will be difficult for a while. But always remember, we will be with you every step of the way through this and will stick by you no matter what. She was a lucky girl to have you as parents. Always here for you 💚 R.I.P. Scrappy 💚

  2. So sorry. Scrappy has many fans/friends all over the world, and will be missed. Your hearts are breaking, but are filled with the love she gave you these many years. May she be at peace. ☮️

  3. Rory, I am so, so sorry. Tears were welling up in my eyes as I read this. My heart goes out to you and Suze. Scrappy will always be with you, in your heart and in your memories. Thoughts and prayers.

  4. We all knew it was coming and dreaded it alongside you. Anyone who has ever lost a beloved fur family member knows – every time you read someone else’s loss, you revisit your own.
    I think the ‘knife on the guts’ is a reminder how much we loved and still love. I hope that pain never lessens for me because I never want to forget my fur bags!
    I’m sorry you lost The Great Scapperoo but I know it was her time. There’s a comfort in knowing she had the best life possible and left it as surrounded by love as she lived it.
    What more could anyone want?

    1. Hey Helen,

      I agree, l was saying to Suze last night that l wasn’t ready to stop loving Scrappy and that l always will, we both will, Scrappy was as much everyone else’s companions as indeed are we companions to everyone else.

      I ‘ll not forget Scrappy, like l have never forgotten Dora, they will always live on.

      Thanks Britch 🙂

  5. I’m heartbroken 💔💔 I’m just glad that she knew she was loved and had a really happy life!
    I can imagine the pain 🐕💕💕
    Thank you for letting us know her! 💕🐕💕
    Big hugs to you and Suze 💕🤗
    R.I.P. Scrappy! I’m sure you running and playing right now! 🐕🐕🐕

    1. Yes, thank you – l too hope that whereever she is right now – she is having more fun than recent months – it is a sad time for me, us here, we have so many memories of Scrappy, bad, sad and happy and loved.

      Thank you

  6. Rory, I’m so sorry to read this. I’m glad you had such a lovely last day with Scrappy. May your memories of Scrappy bring you and Suze comfort you both during this really tough time.

  7. I want to add my condolences about Ms. Scrappy. She was the reason I began to follow your blog in the first place. I’ve stayed of course because you’re an excellent blogger Rory. Always fresh and innovative in your thinking. Oh but this makes my heart hurt… take care you two as you go forward without your baby.

          1. Yes she was a brilliant age, she was just over 16, she may have been older even by a few months – l never knew her true age because of the way she adopted me, in truth she may have been 16 and a half either way she was a grand age 🙂

        1. Hey Julie you are right – loss is loss – l think the true hardship was that we lost Scrappy twice due to the dementia and when we lost her finally – she didn’t even recognise us and it broke our hearts 🙁

  8. what a hard time, and I was unaware of your Beloved family member Scrappy death. A Scrappy shaped hole in may hearts/
