Scooter Bug was one of the litter of puppies I rescued from the South Utah Valley Animal Shelter. Once I got him home it was apparent that he wasn’t in the best shape. The front of one of his toes was shaved off at some point and the bone was sticking out. I got him into the NMHPU Orem Clinic the next day; they were kind enough to take care of the toe and gave me some antibiotics for it, but things weren’t looking good for him. He was still sickly and not very active. I kept him with me most of the time, but one night he’d been vomiting, so I didn’t let him sleep in the bed. The next morning I went to check on him, and he had passed away. Later that day my wife and I buried him at my family farm.
