  1. Re: My baby Scooter. I will miss you so.

    My favourite video of Scooter. I think it shows what a ham he was. No sound. No one needs to hear me talking.

    He WILL take unflavoured pedialyte. At least, he has in the past.

    We were specifically asked for the time being, not to syringe him anything unless absolutely necessary. That boils down to some...
