This page is dedicated to all of the furbabies
who have crossed the Rainbow Bridge in 2009.
Here, we honor those newest angels in that meadow across the Bridge.
All angels are welcome here, for they were well-loved.

In loving memory of very special scottie girl:
"So Hard To Say Goodbye"
A song by Shelly Guidotti
I had to say good-bye today
To the dearest friend I've known
And no one understands like me
By my side to comfort me
When I wasn't at my best
You even loved me when I'd shout
Stop being such a pest
I won't forget the games we played
Or your favorite place to sleep
The hardest part will be coming home
you not there at my feet
Everyday that precious face
Filled my world with gentle love
Now you're with the
Angels up above
(Still) it's so hard to say good-bye
Like my shadow I could
Count on you to be there
So don't mind the tears that I cry
It may take a little while to
Remember you and smile
It's the selfish part of me that wants
You right here back with me
Yes right here by my side
It's so hard to say good -bye
There will be days I know,
As I learn to let go
The rain in my heart'll feel like a river
Then like a soft gentle wind,
From the warmth of a friend
Instead of tears
I'll remember you and smile
Those we love and have lost are no longer where they were before.
They are now wherever we are,
close in our heart and forever loved.
20+ years of age

"... Angie soared over the bridge as only an agility dog can do....
She will be missed very much as she was my travel and sleeping companion...
I am sure she will be bounding through the meadows, showing off her high jumps,
trying her wings, and finding Ali, Linus and Ziggy for a good snuggle and chat."

"Vicki was the sweetest girl. She loved her family and was a kisssy girl.
She ruled the other dogs with an iron paw. Random assaults were her trademark.
She never snapped for effect, she went for blood and got it.
The other girls walked wide circles around her. She became my son Tom's 4-H
agility dog in her middle years. She was surprisingly good at it. A couple of years ago,
she won first place and Tom was thrilled with his trophy. Vicki was more impressed with the
celebratory ice cream cone she received."
"Most of all she was very well loved and will be very missed."

"My Gillian went to the bridge today.
A sweetheart of a girl who filled my life with lots of Love ,Joy ,and Laughter.
She was the Queen of Sitting Pretty and could get away with almost any thing by doing the Sit.
I was there when she came into this world and I was there when she left.
Coming in was a joyous day and I had 10 1/2 years to share and love her. Leaving has taken a large part of my heart."
"Rest my sweet girl and know your are loved..."

After testing the diagnosis was Cirrhosis of the liver.
We were told he had only 90 days to live but Keegan had other
plans,in our scottie family he was Dead Dog Walking. Keegan

The TuckerBoys Circle has been broken.
Today Scotty lost his battle with Cancer. Our beloved little
Scotty Man was rescued 8 years ago through our Vet. He immediately fit
into the crew. What a sweetheart, lovable, well behaved and his spot was
reserved to sleep above my head at night. He was a snuggles this little
Scotty man. But, don’t pick him up, yepper, funny little guy, cuddle and
pet but don’t pick up.
I called him my Southern Gentleman. He was the only Scottie I
had ever known who smiled on cue and he would dance for his meals.
All the Tucker boys took care of him this last year he was sick.
I held him in my arms until he crossed the Rainbow Bridge to be with
Mackenzie and Rocky Tucker. It was very tough to let go of the little guy.
Our hearts are heavy and the tears are flowing as we love this
little man with all our hearts and will miss him dearly. It never gets

Gaelforce Ebony Gryphon
TT, CGC, TDI, NA, NAJ
September 18, 1996 - March 20, 2009
"From the very beginning he clicked everywhere we lived and with everyone he
met. He could chase a cat--then I could tell him to leave it alone, and he would---
he'd switch to herding it just in case I said "ok" again.
His famous feature was his "talking". I could put the phone up to his ear
and Camille would talk to him--and he would "Chewbacca" back. He emulated words at
times and LOVED to listen to his own head roar--frequently!
He was a big boy.........
stellar temperament and nary any health problems until he became an old man at 12.
Gryphon did just about everything exactly right on the first try--Memorial
Day Weekend, 1999, he flew (underneath, he was a big boy) from Arkansas to Portland,
then we drove 2 hours to Camille's on a Thursday. The next four days he competed in
2 agility runs a day--and qualified in 6 out of 8 runs, to gain 2 titles.
A few months later, we attended a herding seminar run by a nationally recognized
trainer. I was laughed at "you want to enter a scottie?". There were 25 spots--we were
number 25--we were told that if a "herding" breed entered at the last minute, we would
lose our working spot. Indeed--we got our working spot, and Gryph was one of TWO dogs
out of 25 that worked the sheep and got a gold star that day. I will NEVER forget what
Gary said after 5 min of moving three 200-lb intact haired rams that were dog savvy
"THAT DOG HAS POWER!". He had it in his voice, in his mannerisms, and in his soul.
He was a therapy dog for almost 11 years of his life--AIDS Hospices, nursing homes,
state mental facilities, rehabilitation centers; however, his specialty, and his very
favorite were CHILDREN. The adolescent mental facilities and children at the battered
women and children's centers were his forte. Interestingly, although he was a talkative,
barky dog at home, he said NARY a word while working--part of the reason why he was perfect
for children that were very sick or afraid of dogs. I see Gryphon in Tank every day--in his
look, his mannerisms, his self-confidence, and his magnetic attraction to people--but only
those that think he's the most handsome man on the planet (gotta be a little self-centered,
The pacemaker gave him another 3/4 of a year of therapy work, I would not have
regretted getting the pacemaker even if he'd only been here a few months--everything he did
was for the greater good."

"He was just the best dog ever, so gentle and kind. He was young
at heart but born with an old soul. He was the childhood friend to my kids
and many times I would peek into the garage when the boys were swapping an
engine or dropping a transmission and there would be Max's butt and tail
sticking out from under the car or truck along with the boy's. He would
come in for a drink and have grease on him just like they did, and many
times his pink nose was black from axle grease. I will miss his gentle
paw on my lap at 5:00 pm to tell me it was time to fix his and the scottie's

"A life cut suddenly and unexpectedly short. This German Shepherd
was our gentle giant. He was everything we could want in a dog--fiercely
protective and very loving, never destructive. He took delight in chomping
on a huge meat bone and playing with his special 'bowser ball'."
cancer was lurking in Buddy, and we never knew it until it ravished all his
vital organs--in less than one week's time. After heroic efforts by our
veterinarian and his staff, my husband and I made the painful decision
to have Buddy put to sleep April 8, 2009. Rest in peace, faithful friend."

"My sweet baby Maggie, you were the love of my life, the apple of my eye,
my soulmate. We did everything together and even during the last days of your life
you always made sure that your mom was ok. I just hope you know how much I love you
and how much happiness you brought into my life. I know you are with me and watching
over me. I just wish God would have given me more time to love you and be with you
but we had 6 years of fun, love and happiness.
"There will never be another like you my Mags....you brought to me the most
wonderful 6 years of my life baby girl. Just know that mom did all she could to give
you the best of the best right up to the end.

together again someday.

If tears could build a stairway,
And memories were a lane,
I would walk right up to Heaven
To bring you home again.
No farewell's were spoken,
No time for goodbye,
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.
My heart still aches in sadness,
And secret tears will flow,
What is meant to me to lose you,
No one will ever know.
Missing our baby girl, our wee Saint, Journey.

"Leader of the Pack"
April 14, 1998-July 2, 2009
"Beloved Tucker Boy"
"Austin was born in NYC in 1998, when he and his brother Bohdi were
1 year old, his former Mistress gave he and Bohdi to NY Scottie Rescue.
In 1999 we received a call from Marion Krupp, and were blessed with two
beautiful, fun loving Scotties, who just thought the soft green grass of
Pennsylvania was the finest carpet they would ever feel on their paws.
Austin walked into our home and never looked back. He was a quiet, laid
back leader, who gathered the pack and ordered them around with his soft
“woofs”, every once in awhile he would take a paw and gently push them to
"Austin had those soulful brown eyes, that would melt my heart.
He was a snuggler, and a very loyal leader, who protected me and slept with
me every night Ted was out of town on business. He failed obedience school
when he was 2, but yet he turned out the most obedient and well-mannered
Tuckerboy of all. He loved to play, around dinner time he gathered the pack
and all the tuckerboys had playtime where they frapped around the great room
entertaining us while we ate."
"There wasn’t a day went by, that he didn’t find a way to tell us how much
he appreciated being taken away from the big City, and numerous foster homes."
"We all miss you Big Boy, you left too soon. God Bless."

Glencoe's Maggie Lou CD
RB July 5, 2009
"At 14 1/2, Maggie had almost earned her CDX. She had 1 more leg to earn, but time and cancer caught up with her.
Maggie had a heart of gold and was the most loving companion to Betty. She was one of those special Scotties who are
content to be with her owner and never was rude to another dog or human- just wanted to be near Betty.
Betty and Maggie always enjoyed participating at the STCA obedience trials in PA in October, and were grateful for all the
loving support from all the Scotie handlers and owners who were laways there to root for every Scottie entered."

Those we love and have lost are no longer where they were before
They are now wherever we are, close in our heart and forever loved
In loving memory of Ebonye Anne, Winnie, Mattie, and now Kellar
If you had not been born here
I could not have loved you
Angel flying too close to the ground
I picked you up and sang to you
And told you how cute you were
Tried to keep your breathing up
And your problems down
I knew someday that you would fly away
For love's the greatest healer to be found
So leave me if you need to
I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground
Fly on, fly on past the speed of sound
I'd rather see you up
Than see you down
Leave me if you need to
I will still remember
Angel flying too close to the ground
Gone is the scottie that was so sweet.
'My heart is broken and cannot be mended.
You must go your way,
And leave me behind
But now that our dreams have ended...
What'll I do when you are far away
And I am blue what'll I do?
When I am wond'ring if you're okay
What'll I do?
What'll I do with just a photograph
To talk to you
When I'm alone with only dreams of you
That won't come true what'll I do?
Kellar my sweet gentle giant; what does one say about a scottie
so very special in so many ways from your right ear that never went up
to your beard that got so curly when it rained to the endless games of
throwing the tennis balls to you. I nicknamed you my "Boyd" boy for the
cute little Boyd statues and the Cambridge book-ends because of your ear.
You were a giant among scotties and have left a huge, giant hole in my heart
with your leaving. There will never be another quite like you, my dear sweet furchild.
There are just so many sweet things to remember about you from the day you came into my
life until the day you left. I'll miss those sweet kisses each time I sang the purple
dinosaur song to you and your toys will always remind me of you. I'll miss when you got
so excited about my playing the little music boxes for you and letting you sniff the little
boxes that contained each of your families' ashes. You were such a special, sensitive soul
and never will there be another one like you.
Never one to complain about things, you took each day with something each of us humans
could learn, to sieze the moment and savor the times of joy. How sad was the day when your own
mom, Kerrye Skye, died and you licked her from her nose to between her ears. I know she is
thrilled to see you again as well as your other siblings, Skara Brae, Dundee, Ebonye Anne,
Smokey, Mattie and especially your sweet love, Winnie. There is much rejoicing at the bridge
I know as they welcome their own into the meadows.
Please dear one, think of me sometime and know that I loved you more than words could ever say
and I will always remember you. Let me know you got there okay and know that you took a huge
piece of me with you on your leaving. This scottie shaped hole in my heart will never be healed
until we meet again. Until then, my sweet darling boy, I love you with all my heart and soul
and will miss you so very much.
Sadly missed forever and ever by

You will be remembered when the flowers bloom in spring
And in the summertime remembered
In the fun that summer brings.
You will be remembered
When fall brings leaves of gold
In the wintertime, remembered, in the stories that are told.
And you will be remembered, each and every day right from the start
For the memories that we shared
Forever in our hearts…

in his long life that he didn't feel good, the last two. He always had
things his way, mister alpha. Last year he won the oldest scottie prize

"She was Miss Heather, Miss Heather-Feather, our Little Jealous Girl,
the Woo-woo girl, the ornery little bitch, and She Who Thinks She's in Charge.
She would get jealous and howl when you called another dog ("Wooooo"), until
she got too deaf to hear you do it. She loved to "get the RAT!" at earthdog,
and never met a cookie she didn't inhale. Even Monday, she was trying to go
after squirrels when Michelle took her for a walk around the neighborhood.
She loved bathtime, the garden hose, and would go out and patrol the back
yard in the rain, just to get wet. Of course, she wasn't a big fan of being
dried off, but that's another story.... "
