EP 31: Scottie MOT | Cath Marchbank
Scottie MOT is back and this month it is an extended edition with Cath Marchbank which could be re-titled Scottie MORT. That is because we discuss how owners and second pets should prepare for the passing of a Scottie. Cath offers some practical tips and explains that other dogs or cats in the home may be lost and bewildered so it is important to involve them in the grieving process too. Although recorded on 5 September 2022, it seems prescient that it airs the day after the world was shocked and saddened to hear of the loss of Queen Elizabeth II. This episode is dedicated to the memory of Rocky who was owned by Maxine.
