We write to share the sad news of Scooter Dog Thoreau Schmidt Fisher's passing.
For an epileptic Border Collie mix, Scooter lived a long and adventuro
us life (b. July 4, 1994 d. January 22, 2011.) He went to Baltimore and Washington street festivals, crashed parties, hosted parties, was Best-Dog in our wedding, loved to camp along the shores of the Chesapeake, the backwoods of Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, Canada - the only time he ever appeared displeased with camping was up in Algonquin Provincial Park when the mosquitoes were so thick his snout was pink from bites!
Scooter attended Schmidt Family reunions, Clean Water Action reunions, and multiple American Library Association meetings (Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Boston, and Toronto to name a few.)
Jim and I have talked about all we've learned from him - may we all age as gracefully as Scooter. He approached life happily and was up for anything. He was a good dog and we miss him.
Sarah and Jim
Editor's note: I for one am grateful to Scooter for bringing Sarah and Jim to MABCR. Sarah and Jim and Scooter (and Thai) have volunteered many hours to MABCR and I have always enjoyed their company. Scooter will be missed.
