Scooter Update

Scooter's "episode" turned out to be a stroke on Sunday morning. Apparently, he has suffered brain damage from his seizures, and it manifested itself in a stroke.

The vet says he is young, and there is no reason for seizures or stroke. So, we have him on an anti-seizure medication and the vet is optimistic. She (and all her staff) had great instructions for how to care for him. They were all very reassuring and kind. For now, he's just under MY observation.

THANK YOU everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. Thank you, Clearfield Veterinary Clinic doctors and staff. Scooter, the kids and me appreciate it. (Ruger, too. He's even been sweet to Scooter.)

He seems to be taking out any stress on this stuffed wolf. :)

GIT-ER-DONE Scoot! We LOVE you, Boy!

P.S. I knew today would be a better day! Trust in the Lord. (Even if it's for your dog!) (Or naughty son.) :)

Poor Scooter! I hope he's back to his scootin' self soon!


This is the coolest dog ever!
