I'm going to level with you guys, the past couple of weeks has not been the best in Scrappy Dogland. Two of my favorite pups passed away and my heart has been a little heavy. Lately, it seems that all of my Scrappy Dog Sundays have been dedicated to sweet babes who needed to move on.
Butch was a scrappy before scrappy was cool! His sweet face and mastery at tug-o-war made him a legend around the dog park.
Oh boy, my friend Olive, what can I say about her? She is quite the contrast to Butch. She is sophisticated, laid back and never met a nap she didn't like
Don't get me wrong, she loved to play too. She was a water dog, through and through.
But naps...that was her time to shine.
Whether romping around the states or just laying back on the couch, Olive did it with style and grace that only a silly black lab could.
I don't think we can ever explain the love for a pet. It is something you have to experience. It is overwhelming, frustrating, and maddening but also warm, unconditional and inspiring. It is feeling like no other and when you lose that, you really do have a hole in your heart. Both Butch and Olive will be missed but in their lifetime, they made us stronger, laugh louder and love more than we ever could before.
