Farewell to Alum Scotch

OBG lost one of our friends this month. His name was Scotch and he came to OBG in January 2011 from a Tennessee shelter. This beautiful boy had been found as a stray.  He charmed his fosters along the way and hit the jackpot with his forever parents, Eric and Laura. He was a regular at OBG events and everyone loved to see him. Thanks to Eric and Laura for giving him such a wonderful home. We are so sorry for your loss. Rest in peace, Scotch! We miss you!

Here is a tribute from Eric and Laura:

Whether it’s his big, brown eyes, peeking out from under droopy lids, wondering why we woke him up,

Or it’s his stub of a tail , wiggling like mad, greeting me at the door,

Or a soft whine from the floor, begging to be petted, demanding another belly rub,

Or a soft snore from one of his many beds, dreaming again, chasing one of the many neighborhood bunnies,

Or a quiet walk through the neighborhood, staring up sunrises and moonrises, sniffing under bushes for treasure,

Or his soft fur, pressing up against me, cuddling after a long day,

We’re going to miss you, Scotch. Today and always.

And we would like to give our thanks to OBG Cocker Rescue, for introducing us to Scotch, and to Arlington Animal HospitalCVCA Cardiac Care, and VCA SouthPaws for all of their time, effort, and care. And thank you to all of our friends and family who spent time with Scotch–who shared their love for his sad eyes and their patience for his shenanigans. We know you all loved him as much as we did.
