in memory of Scubee the one and only Wienerblab

a message from sara and ryan:

After a heroic battle with lymphoma, Scubee passed away peacefully in our arms on Tuesday, July 3rd 2007.

Although he wasn't with us for very long, we will be eternally grateful for the joy that Scubee brought to our lives. His first couple of years may have been rough, but Scubee more than made up for it in the last two years, which were filled with love, games, cuddles, and, perhaps most importantly, plenty of treats. Scubee was a true character, and won over the hearts of everyone who met him (with perhaps the exception of our mail carrier!)

Our deepest thanks go out to Animal Rescue Coalitions in Halifax for giving Scubee the chance to adopt us, to the Dogs with Blogs community, particularly for all the supportive messages over the last few days, and of course to the Wienerblab fan club of family and friends who loved Scubee despite and because of all his eccentrities (if you've ever been in a car with Scubee, you know what we're talking about).

So long, Scubee. We will miss you terribly. It's been a blast.

See you at the rainbow bridge.

Lots of Loving Licks,

Hello Scubee, Sara and Ryan

Thank you for sharing this with us. We may not have known Scubee for a long time or have known him very well, he was certainly very special.

I am sad for the loss but find comfort that all our loved ones meet us at the rainbow bridge oneday and they are young again and free from pain.

It was so important that Scubee had a loving family at the end. Even if it wasn't for that long. All it matters was that he was loved and lived his life and days full of happiness. He left you guys knowing that he was loved and he can now go in peace and wait.

All of our dogs who have left us are now there with Scubee. They are happy and free.

Eve and Fei


Rest Easy Scubee, We know that now you are restored to health and can run and play with all the dogs that are over the bridge. Say hi to our Sandy who is already there.

Love, peace and woofs,
Casper, Buddy, Nikki, Winnie and our momma

Dear Sara and Ryan. Thanks for sharing Scubee with those of us who have stumbled upon your blog. From what I've read, Scubee seemed to me a very special dog. Good to read that his passing was peaceful. I share your sorrow, but hope you'll find comfort in the memory o the good times you've had with Scubee. My own Dax André will be waiting for him in the happy hunting fields of forever with a large and juicy bone and show him around.

All possible love from Norway

Dear Sara and Ryan,

We are so very sad to hear of little Scubee's passing. He was very special and he is now running free and without pain over the Rainbow Bridge, this is what we must think of in order to make his passing more bearable.

We will all meet again there and you again will have your time with dear Scubee and we will have the privilege of finally meeting your special little one.

I'm glad he found such a loving and wonderful family and may you take comfort in knowing that you made a big difference and impact in a little dog's life.

Thank you for taking such good care of him and we love you and you are in our thoughts.

BIG hugs, tears and love Billy Boo

Sara and Ryan,
I'm sad to hear that Scubee has passed away. During such a sad time, be comforted knowing that he passed away knowing that he was loved and adored during his last couple of years. I'm sure he thought you two were just as special as you thought he was.

Eddie N Peaches said...

Scubee, we never wrastled together, or played tugs or anything, but you seem like you were a cool dog. May you enjoy those car rides in heaven.

Sara and Greg, God bless you for loving Scubee and letting him adopt you. You made his last 25 months his heaven on earth.

Eddie & Peaches

Lorenza said...

Sara and Greg.
I didn't have the chance to meet Scubee, but I know that your life and his life was very happy the last 25 months.
Now we know he is free of pain.
Thanks for sharing with us
Kisses and hugs

Stanley said...


You loved well. You are free now. Run like the wind, brother!

Sara & Ryan, Scubee didn't just adopt you, he knows that you adopted him too. He was loved, and he left this world sure of that fact.

I don't know exactly how you feel right now, but my girl told me that the ache and missing Scubee would be part of the price of love. I'm thinking, from what little I know of Scubee, that loving him was worth the price.

AireZen to you both,
Stanley (and his hooman girl, Lisa)

Toby said...

Ryan & Sara, you are in our thoughts.

I'm sure Fufu and many other doggy pals are at the Bridge to greet Scubee. Run free Scubee...


Marvin The Dog said...

We were so sorry to read your sad news.

You are in our thoughts, and Scubee is over the Rainbow Bridge running with the warm breeze in his fur.

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Sara & Ryan,

What can we say? We are sad Scubee is gone but we are comforted by the fact that it was peaceful and he was surrounded by love. You gave Scubee the best gift a dog could ever want ... a loving family who cares and comforts. We know you are sad but we hope, in time, the memories you have of Scubee bring smiles again.

There will never be another weinerblab.

Roxie, Sammy & Andy

Dakota said...

Sara Ryan and Scubee

Thanks for sharing with me all those special moments with the furry one, and for letting me dog sit sometimes. He will always be a loved member of the Vine family, and it was wonderful that there was such a special little guy in the family for the past two years. Now he can run free together with Chessa, those two always did like to play tug-a-war. Sending you love from the Rock,
Aunt Melanie

Bella said...

Farewell dear lovely Scubee, we are sorry for your passing and send love to your family.

Hi Scubee!

I hope you'll remember your mum and dad and watch over them when you are at the wainbow bwidge.

You've brought so much love and joy to them


PreciOus said...

Deepest condolences to Sara and Ryan. Scubee will be comforted to know that you both handle his departure so bravely. It must be hard for him too.

Dear Scubee, once again you are free from all sickness and runs freely over at the rainbow bridge.
