It's hard to put into words how much I loved this dog, and what a faithful companion she was through some rough times. And, of course, she hung out with me while I gardened! Granted, on her part there was more relaxation than actual gardening, but she helped out by chasing cats, highlighting previously undiscovered patches of afternoon sunshine, and letting me know when it was too cold to stay outside.
I know that some of you, dear readers, also have animal companions who are your buddies in gardening and life. As a tribute to Scout, I would LOVE it if you'd email me a picture or two of your pet(s) in your yard/garden. Just email me the photo, along with your pet's name and anything you'd like me to say about him or her in the caption. Meanwhile, here are a few photos of Scout.
I sure miss her.
Rest in peace, my dear friend.
