Scooter is BACK!

Mom’s gone teaching.  So I’m back on the blog.  Shhh….don’t tell her.

I thought I’d start by inserting 27 pictures of me that you may have missed. I am very good looking.

If you hover your mouse over each one before you click, you can read clever things I wrote about each picture.

Now I’ll show you a video in which I look very good. Those are the best kind. All me. A little bit of Mom, but she is only a supporting character in this production and can be ignored.

My training is progressing in the forward direction. As is Mom’s physical therapy.  Mom has one arm that is now way longer than the other. She’s so funny.

I have been diagnosed as an “obnoxious adolescent” with regards to my lunging and barking behavior towards other dogs. (I want to play with them NOW!!!) At home I am nearly perfect. I am training up a storm.

Somebody’s coming. I have to go.

Very big happy licks and tail wags to you.

Your friend, Scooter.

PS: I would enjoy your comments if you would like to leave some for me. They’re almost as good as ear scratches.

  1. You are a very well trained doggie! I was almost expecting your mom to make you say the blessing before eating. She is such a tease to put the food down in front of you and not let you even get a taste. Your manners are better than some kids that I know!

  2. Training up a storm INDEED! You are such a good boy…(on the video anyway!)
    It must be so hard to wait for that all important OK!
    And not to give you a swollen head but you have grown into such a handsome fellow.

  3. your pics are cute. but if you have to preface what you are going to say with, ‘shhh, don’t tell…’ you probably shouldn’t be doing it.
    I’m just sayin’. Don’t want you to get in trouble.

  7. Scooter, you are such a smart fella!!! I love all of your pics. I’ve seen most of them before but there were a few that I hadn’t seen yet. My favorite is the one with the shower curtain….or the toilet one….or the one falling asleep in the shower….well, I’m having a hard time picking one….haha.

    I’m really impressed with your manners at mealtime!! Your “waiting” skills are awesome!!

    Seeing your gorgeous face in the pictures makes me want to get a golden retriever….oh, wait….I already have 4 of them..haha! Too bad you don’t live closer….then you could come play at my house. There is a cute little golden, named Sasha, that lives here and I think it would be love at first sight!!

  11. Hi Scooter,

    Great video, pity you had to share the “stage” with a human, but as a professional one learns to cope ;-) You must have spent ages in the green room getting that booofy tail!

  12. A good friend who got me involved in quilting sent me your blog information. Since I’m also a dog LOVER, she knew I would like your blog not only for quilting, but for doggy things too. I LOVE this video, your Scooter is so precious, so pretty and so GOOD. You’re obviously raising her to be a very good and loving pooch. I can’t wait to see the next posting by Scooter!

  16. Hi, Calypso here. Just want you to know that my mom really appreciates your posts. I’m also in the obnoxious adolescent stage. I bark at her, after she’s done everything she thinks she can to satisfy me, I just lay down and go to sleep. So good to see her jump through hoops! But she loves me. Just like your mom and yes, she also has an arm that’s longer.

  17. Scooter, you are a really good boy! Our dog, Rica is a yellow Lab and she is almost 16 years old, so she doesn’t move around like you do anymore. It makes me laugh to see how you bounce around like a ball! And I absolutely love your black nose!

  19. I love you, Scooter. We are without a dog presently, and I sure miss one. You are such a good dog. When you are completely trained you can come live with me. (I bet. Like Ami would give you up)! Keep blogging.

  20. I have missed you Scooter! I can’t see you on Facebook or Twitter or where it is you hang out. You should get yourself a blog so you don’t have to wait till Mom goes away. You are so well behaved in this video – not surprised you want to share and you have grown even more handsome since I last saw you. I am not allowed another dog so you are the only one in my life now. I would love to have you here when your Mom goes away but it is probably too far for you to come visit but if you fancy a trip to Europe I’ll give you my address

  21. Too funny, I see Marley has come a long way but boy he is a lot of dog for the average person. Your mom had done much work with you and is doing an excellent job, you need to sit back and relax and try to be more patient for all good things come to those who wait. Thank you Aim for adopting Scooter from GRRoM for without you I am not sure where he would be right now, probably still in foster care. Take care and have a great week.

  24. Hi Scooter from Bella, Dottie, and Shorty – actually we’re all pretty short, we’re Dachshunds, from Dachshund Rescue of Houston.

    Our mom quilts for AAQU too, and she loves your kitchen floor! We spend a lot of time in her studio, and our floor is plaid – white, yellow, and two shades of blue. She made blue beds for us, to go with the floor. Is that unreal or what?

    You are really good to wait for your meals like that. We dance around, but we all know which corner of the kitchen has our own bowl. (Shorty is really funny; she sits down with her back feet out when she eats. And she eats so slowly, that Bella has to wait to lick out her bowl.)

    Happy bow-wow to you, you handsome dude!

  25. Scooter, you are much better behaved than most people I see at mealtime. Imagine setting a plate of bacon and eggs in front of a hungry person, and making them wait until someone s-l-o-w-l-y brings them their coffee, and tell them they have to sit until they’re told it’s okay to eat!! People would not do as well as you did.

  30. Very impressive, Scooter. My name is Rambo and I am a English cocker. If I had met you when I was younger, I would have played chase the Frisbee with you. You are taller than I am, but I have a beautiful golden coat just like you. Since I am now 13, I will just watch you most of the time.

    Scooter: thank you for watching.
