Scruffy Klingel


My dog Scruffy was put down following a stroke on June 12, 2001. She was just a little mutt that my parents purchased at the local humane society before Christmas 1986. She has been gone for almost six weeks and I'm still crying over her. I'm single and she was basically my family and I miss her so much that it hurts. I can say that there will never be another like her.

I had numerous medical problem between 1988 and 1999 and she was always there to say hello, give me a kiss and lay beside me while I recovered.

When I couldn't do anything for her in June it almost broke my heart. I tried to get another dog a couple of weeks after her death, but I felt guilty about it and It felt like Scruffy's spirit was still with me. I have since returned the new puppy and the seller completely understood my feelings.

Scruffy was like my shadow and now that she is gone I feel as though I've lost more than a friend, I think a little piece of me passed away with her. She

was a great dog, everyone loved her, she never hurt anyone or did anything destuctive, if all dog's go to the DogStar, then Scruffy should be the brightest star in the firmament.
