Friends, you’re so kind to think of Edgar and his peeps. He’s over the bridge. It means a lot when you hold people close during a time of grief. I blogged about him last time.

I’m finding myself sad lately about this thing called the “bridge” because I’m usually a low key kind of guy. Even happy most of the time. What do I have to complain about? Nothing.

A friend of the retriever variety just learned she’s got a problem. With melanoma.

What can I say? What can I do? I know melanoma doesn’t have a happy ending for the most part.

It’s sad. Thank you for caring.

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!

    Although this is not much comfort – we are ALL here for a brief time. So we need to make the most of it whilest we can. You have made the Peeps so over the moon happy and grateful! Continue on in that journey as I’m sure they will continue to love you up all over. And yes, it is all so very sad not to be able to go on longer. Our hearts need time to grieve and heal so they can once again be joyful in life – however that may be. You ARE a big piece of that joy.

    As you know, my sister Kyla died from melanoma. I know she and Stuart are having a grand time over the bridge, but it doesn’t make us feel any better down here. Kali and I just had a vet check yesterday. We are both well, but Kali is going to have to have her teeth cleaned again.
    I hope the retriever can overcome this horrible disease called cancer. Sometimes, it can be operated on and removed, but with Kyla it was already into her blood stream and lymph system. We love all of our lost souls.

    Winston, you are growing up and learning the lessons of life, which are hard and sometimes very sad. We all must make the most of life, people and pets, and we must enjoy and appreciate every minute because it does go fast, and too fast for many.

    Your retriever friend is lucky to have you for a friend. Just be there for her whenever you can. A visit, a lick and an encouraging paw-to-paw will do wonders. Your presence will help lots! It will also help you to feel better knowing you’re helping her.

    Hey, my buddy! Can’t wait to hang with you soon. We can think and the “bridge” a bit…. then chase whatever we can find, pull each other’s beards and have a grand ‘ole time! I hear this is what Stuart, Toby and all those across the bridge will be encouraging us to do….carry on.

    Your buddy,
