Sweet Alice


Alice in a suitcase on Christmas Day 2012. As cute as can be. Ready to take a little trip. Through the looking glass maybe?

You could call Alice a wonder dog. Years ago she survived – and thrived – after a terrible house fire.

You could call Alice a best friend. That little wiggly butt and a tongue just meant for giving kisses.

She made it through to start a brand new year with her peep, my Godmother Carol. Then, she went over the bridge to be with those mischievous four-legged pals and relatives of hers who went before her. She didn’t suffer. That wasn’t her style.

She leaves a trail of sad mourners across the country, and even around the world, who knew her, who knew of her, and who loved her.

Goodbye my sweet Alice friend. We miss you terribly. Give BoBo some kisses for Us, will you?

Cancer is an ugly thing.

About The Scottie Chronicles

Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!

  1. You’re right cancer is really a monster. Bye Alice….

  2. Scout's Mom says:

    I’m so so sorry for the loss of your good friend. Alice sure was a trooper and an adorable one at that. I suspect she’ll be something even more special (if possible) where she is now. I hate to even say the “C” word. It’s horrible enough for us but why, why, does it have to hit our amazeingly stoic k-9 friends too? We’ve all lost too many loved ones to it.
    RIP Sweet Alice.

  3. RIP sweet Alice, run free over rainbow bridge xxx

    The bridge is getting too crowded lately.

  5. We are thinking she is happy running free and cancer free over the rainbow bridge.

    Your tribute to Alice is great! Our peeps have known her since before the fire and talked about what a trooper she was. We know she is with all the other scotties and friends watching over us.
    RIP Alice

  9. Fragile Circle
    “We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
    Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
    We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
    never fully understanding the necessary plan.”

    Irving Townsend.

    So sorry for your loss. Alice let your angel wings soar with the wisdom of your mortal soul. I am so glad you did not suffer, you brave Scottie girl!

    Alice lived every minute of her life to the max…I’ll never forget her playing with those huge toys, and she was such a good mother. Her Scottie spirit was front and center when she made that amazing recovery after the fire. Stuart’s right….Alice thrived. Goodbye, Sweet Alice. Thanks for being an inspiration and a joy to all the lives you touched.
