STROF Vice President  Janet Skinner

There is another beautiful Scottie angel in heaven this morning. My beloved Abby crossed over peacefully in my arms with the help of my wonderful veterinarian, Dr.Paul Reifer. Abby suffered a massive seizure last night at bedtime, and several more this morning. It was time.

My heart is broken - this precious little girl had so much heart and gave so much to me in the 5 years that I had the privilege of sharing my life with her.

I can only hope that there is an agility course at the Rainbow Bridge
and that all the bars have been set at 4 inches

I will love you and miss you forever, baby girl.

STROF Vice President Dawn Dayringer

In February 2014, a rather hefty (40 pound) 11 year old male Scottie came into rescue. His name was Mr. Boots. After living in foster care for several months without being adopted he joined the Dayringer clan in April 2014. I don't think Mr. Boots quite knew what to do when he arrived to join our all-female household that included 4 Scottie girls.  Mr. Boots' four previous owners were all men!

"Bootsie" was a handsome, distinguished gentleman who kept mostly to himself until Kate, my lab rescue, came into our home. The two became best friends almost immediately, and spent almost all of their time

together from that point on.

Unfortunately Kate passed away from cancer on

January 21, 2017.   Sadly, on January 31, 2017 Mr. Boots joined her at the Rainbow Bridge after developing severe pancreatitis. My solice is knowing that they are no longer in pain and are again sleeping side by side again.

Boots was nearing his 14th birthday and I hoped for a big celebration, as most Scotties don't live that long. We will still celebrate his life that day, but will miss his presence in our home.

RIP Mr. Boots aka "Bootsi"e aka "BooBoo"- and Kate.

Thanks, as always, to Dr. Laura Palma and her staff at Circle of Life for helping me through this difficult time.

'There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors.

 Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows,

hills and valleys with lush green grass.

 When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

 The animals are happy and content, except one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly
stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life- but never absent from your heart.

 Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together,

never again to be separated.'
