The internet has been in ruv with Scout for a very long time. Scout’s special talent of balancing anything and everything on his head charmed all of us and constantly made us giggle.
Last Wednesday, Scout passed away after a long fight. Yesterday morning, his mom, Jen, posted an incredibly emotional goodbye to her best friend.
Last Wednesday after a tough year so far, Scout has passed peacefully. It’s taken a week for me to find the right wording to break the news and I don’t even think this does him justice. I wish you all could have given him a hug as a final goodbye, there would have been a line as far as the eye could see – I swear he was fuelled through the last few months by love entirely.
It’s true that Scout was loved very deeply by thousands of people. His big blocky head brought so much joy to all of us. We loved seeing him balance all kinds of crazy things on his head – his favorite of which was food.
But his abilities went far beyond noms.
People were so impressed and in love with him that, sometimes, he tried to go incognito to avoid the pawparazzi.
But one thing Scout never shied away from was standing up against breed specific legislation. Scout became an ambassador for Pit Bull type breeds, breaking down the stereotype that they are uncontrollable dogs.
Scout’s patience and goofiness showed people the truth – that these dogs are loveable dinguses.
