Jan. 7, 1997-Dec. 28, 2013
Tootsie passed away just short of her 17th birthday on Dec. 28, 2013. A lab-spaniel mix, Tootsie was quiet and reserved with an engaging spirit and personality! She was passionate about exploration and took many a pal on wayward adventures - farm, woods and pond. She enjoyed chipmunk hunting, going for rides, rubbing her head in the blankets, walking between human legs to get some lovin', ice cream and often would awaken when food smells came from the kitchen (especially baking). She was excited by the first snowfall of the year and would seek out the last vestige of snow to eat each season.
She will be sadly missed by all who knew her, but especially by her humans: Donna, Teddie, Schuyler and canine step-sister, Sculley. She was preceded in death by her Alpha canine, Mulder, and feline companions, Michelangelo and Warble. Freed from the frailties of her earthly body, Tootsie is now able to explore at will! "Blessed is the person that has earned the love of an old dog" -Sidney Jeanne Seward.
