First of all, for those of you who do not know Scout, let me introduce you…
This is Scout. Scout has provided our family with a little domestic drama over the years!
Scout has always been somewhat of a rebellious little lady. From the time she was adopted, she has had quite the attitude. When something did not go her way she would often act out by pottying on the bed, biting you when you would least expect it or hiding a pancake in your suitcase with all of your clean clothes!
When Scout was a very young lass, her mother (my sister) decided that she could not care for Scout and her special needs like a mother should. She left Scout behind to pursue her dreams of fame and fortune. After living with the Meme for a few months, Scout decided to come stay with me for a few weeks in the summer.
At first, we did not bond at all! She would crap in my closet and I obviously was not giving her the attention she needed. It was her way or NO way! But, over the course of the summer, we managed to form a connection. Once she got past the traumatic feeling of abandonment she became quite the sweetheart. Sam still comes and visits but we don’t talk about the adoption. Scout thinks that I am her real mother and we decided it is best to not tell her.
And, here we are, 4 years later…practically inseparable. She still craps in my closet and randomly bites our house guests but I have learned to accept her for who she is…a spoiled rotten little turd! She even has her own Instagram!!! I assure you this was NOT my doing!
Today that spoiled rotten turd turns 6 years old which is middle-age for her. She gets her way
most all of the time. She sleeps with us or should I say we sleep with her. She will love you one minute and bite you the next and she potties where she feels like it but we love her and wish her a very HAPPY 6th BIRTHDAY!!!
