Scooby Doodle Martin

I know it's been a long time since I posted last or even been on Blogger for that matter. The last year has been one of the roughest of my life. I've been super busy holding down two jobs and on top of that my precious Scooby was diagnosed with kidney disease which ultimately took his life in September.

I know to some pets are just that. Scooby was a lot more to me. I was blessed to be there the day he entered the world and when he left it. He was my baby! I don't want to get all psycho and introspective on you guys but...I have daddy issues. I never had a dad that cared anything for me and being gay, I knew the chances of me having a child were slim. Scooby was my child and I wanted to be the opposite of my real dad and be the best dad I could be to Scooby. I sure hope I was. I have cried so much the last year during his sickness, and after his death. I'm trying to find that balance of healing and mourning. This blog is just a reminder that he was here and a look back at his life in pictures. I will love you forever, Scooby. Not a day will pass that I don't think of you...

I'm glad you're posting again. I wondered what happened to you since we hadn't seen you online in awhile.

I'm really sorry about Scooby and understand how you feel. I had to put Ricky down in mid-June and he was the same age as Scooby. I still miss him dearly.

Hang in there, my friend.

Scooby was loved, and Scooby loved.

That's a good thing.

Hello handsome! I have missed you! I wish your return was under better news though, and I have balled my eyes out reading this, as my first pet was a dashund, Poochie, and I still get teary eyed all these years later. What great pictures to treasure.......
