Her name was Scooty, she was a stray pup. 40 of us students had adopted her and she used to live in our Studio.

We all loved her. She died mysteriously one night, only 3 months old. She seemed to have been murdered, with a deep gash running from neck to stomach.

We painted a double height wall on our campus with a giant paw print in her memory. Some people laughed at us but they didn't know what a special soul Scooty was.

Everytime I look at this photo I wish I was sitting next to her.

Thank you for the Nomination and Spotlight, Gloria! And especially for your kind words.
Thank you so much for the Spotlight, Deborah!

    How sad. THE EMPTY CHAIR. For those who cared for her, know Scooty thanks each of you. She will always live in your heart. She lives beyond the Rainbow Bridge one day you will meet again. RIP Scotty. Know you were loved.

    It's hard to put into words how I feel about this. She was so sweet and undeserving of such a fate.. it makes me so angry!

    This is so heartbreaking : (. It is a beautiful tribute to Scooty, at least she knew great love in her short life. Voted for photo of the week!

    Niha, I am crying right now, and I cannot understand why someone would hurt such a wonderful soul. At list she was loved by all of you, God bless you, and keep Scooty happy in Heaven!

    That is such a sad story. I cannot imagine anyone who would murder an innocent creature. I am sorry for your loss. This is a very touching picture, and entry.

    So sad. Teary as I write this. People can be so cruel and destructive. Others, though, have the capacity to love deeply and create, like you and the rest of those who cared for Scooty.
