Can we all get in a time machine and fast forward to September 22nd, so that the summer of death can officially come to an end? This summer has swallowed up another beautiful soul! Scooter, a contender for the title of world’s smallest dog, closed his tiny eyes for the final time earlier this week. WHY?!!!!!!!!!
Scooter’s owner said he broke his leg after jumping out of her arms. The vet put Scooter’s leg in a cast and gave him some medicine to take at home. Sadly, the medicine gave him a stomach ulcer and Scooter flew off to heaven. Just the thought of Scooter’s tiny leg in a cast the size of a thimble is making my insides melt. And prepare to melt some more…
Scooter’s owner added, “I put him in the box with flowers and a little dove picture to take him to heaven – he looked wonderful.”
6-month-old Scooter, who was 8cm tall, 20cm long and weighed 400 grams, was going to try for the title of the smallest dog in the world when he turned 1.
The hole left in my no-heart is bigger than Scooter and it can never be filled. Although, I will try to fill it this weekend with massive amounts of the sweet nectar and Hostess products.
Heaven just got a lot more adorable thanks to Scooter. Insert a zillion and one sad faces here. And no, it’s not too early to start bonging and boozing.
