Sniglet came to visit last week. She was confused.
If you’re new to The Scottie Chronicles, Sniglet was Stuart’s “Gal Next Door”. The two of them loved each other. They dug holes and ripped the bottom of the fence apart so they could come and go as they pleased into each other’s back yard. They’d gnaw on each other’s legs. Bite each other’s face and generally have a good ‘ole time. Every single day.
Every single day.
So I can only imagine what’s going on next door. If Stuart’s passing is completely devastating for us, it’s traumatic for Sniglet. And her roommate, Mama Kitty, and her peep, Auntie Meredith.
She was glad to see us and stayed for a few nights. I thought it would be awful, but it wasn’t. There’s just something about an animal in your life that, well, makes things better.
Their eyes are soulful. Their very presence is a gift.
Don’t worry Sniglet, I’m just as confused as you are. Taking one day at a time.
See Sniglet KNOWS and cares!! How wonderful to have a pal like that to help his Peeps along the way…- Always – Humphrey & Cherry
She is wonderful. Thanks for visiting.
Sweet sniglet – it will be hard for a while – maybe if she has Stuarts blankie to snooze on she will feel better
She sniffed around. A lot. She slept next to me while we watched TV. In Stuart’s place on the sofa.
Awww poor little Sniglet,xx Speedy
Yes, she’s lost. We are too. Thanks for hopping by.
Awww…I’m sorry Sniglet. – Ainsley
Thanks for the visit Ainsley.
poor sweet baby, she misses her buddy. This breaks my heart xoxo DakotasDen
You should have seen her wander around the back yard.
Poor Sniglet. It is confusing, so many Stuart scents around.
Yes, she really went nuts in my office where Stuart slept every afternoon. She found his toy box. Sigh.
It just isn’t the same, is it, Sniglet?
Nothing will ever, ever be the same will it? We don’t even go on evening walks anymore.
We are reaching for the Kleenex…
Poor Sniglet.💔 She must be so confused and lonely, too. Your post was both touching and so true. Sniglet will be included in our prayers for you and the dad peep as you all heal, one day at a time.
McDuff & Mom
Very, very kind of you. Prayers all around. Thank you.
Ahhh Sniglet – glad you stayed a few nites, healing for everyone!
Ozzy, Callie & Mommy
It really helped. We don’t want her to think we don’t love her anymore!
I think Sniglet knows. Dogs have such an inner sense in what is going on.
Sweet William The Scot
Don’t they? They’re magical.
Lily & Edward
Tears are running down my face while reading this. Damn…some things just aren’t fair.Wish I could hug you all. ♥
You just did my friend.
have been worried about singlet also. happy to see she was able to visit.
We hope she comes back soon and often.
We are glad Sniglet came to visit and could stay over with you, as she must be mourning too. We like to think of them creating their own passageway between your houses. A great visual of all the digging and fence re-arrangement. You have wonderful neighbors, and a four footed friend who needs you too.
You’re so right. Actually, it was she who pulled the bottom part of the fence off. Just big enough for her and just right for Stuart. Then, he dug under in at least two places. Just to keep all of us guessing about how he got over in her back yard. It’s nice to smile at memories. Maybe one day, there’ll be more smiles than tears.
Poor Sniglet. She’s gotta be missin Stu too.
She sure is. Really confused. And sad.
Poor Sniglet. At least you have each other. I’m sure she can sense your sadness and maybe she finds comfort in it. *ear licks* Noodle
Mommy’s eyes are leaking for little Sniglet. And Stuart. And Miss Deita. 😥
Hopefully both you and Sniglet will benefit from some extra love and doggie kisses.
Awwww, Sniglet! We were wondering how she was taking all of this. You are so right about how wonderful it is having a Furry Baby around the house! They ARE a GIFT like you said, of pure Soulful Joy! I’m so happy that you enjoyed taking care of Dear Sniglet!
Give her a great Big Kiss for us!
Love, Wags, and licks,
Riley- Puppy and Tessie-Girl and Mum
Poor Sniglet. We can see the sadness in your face.

Hugs to you Sniglet… I know you feel it and you miss your friend… I miss him too… :o(
Sniglet has such an alert pretty face. Thank goodness she has her peeps but it must be hard for her. ❤️
So sad for Sniglet. You are very right about the soulful eyes. They see and understand so much more than we all know. Hugs all around for all of you.
So happy you had a furry friend to hug and snuggle with. I’m sure she loved it too!!
