Scooter, mommy is so sorry for letting go of your leash. It was my job to protect you and Bella and I miss you so much. Bella keeps looking for you and smells you in the house. Every second which goes by is devastating because you are not with me. You were everywhere I was waiting with a kiss, wanting picked up, nestled in my chest until you sighed and then we'd go outside to go potty.
I never thought Thursday night was the last time I would say "let's go night night baby boy" and you were ready with a walk to the bed and barking at Kevin when he tried to get into the bed with your mommy.
You were the healer when I was on my death bed and recovering, there to lick me and let me hold you for hours. I will never be able to not see you in my heart and eyes with all of the images. Mommy is doing her best to be strong and know you are in heaven running, playing and healthy. I am so thankful you didn't feel any pain and went straight into God's arms.
I know you will be watching over me every day and eventually I will smile again.
God rest your soul. I put a letter in your casket before mom and dad buried you, thanking you for all of the joy, comfort, hope, smiles and my sighs, knowing I would always have you in my world as "my man."
I love you so much baby boy. I know you have gone "night night" and are in heaven playing in the beautiful green hills, smiling.
