Scooter is a very lively 10-year-old Beagle. Scooter is good with other dogs, but will give a warning growl if another four-legged friend gets too close to his sleeping space. He’s recently been able to show off some of my awesome agility skills, so if that’s something you’d like to work more with him on, you’d be a perfect match. He really enjoys running through tunnels, climbing up ladders, and running down slides, even more so if rewarded with a treat or just a good belly rub. Scooter is extremely affectionate and loves to be loved.

D'Amani Grayer and the Brophy offense had no other option.
Mountain Pointe faces the difficult task of pulling off a first-round upset against a high seed on Friday.
On the eighth of its 10-play script used to begin last Friday's game, Higley's season and postseason goals were crippled.
At first it looked like Mountain Pointe might be the one possessing the quick-strike offense on this particular night.
But at second glance - and third, and fourth, and fifth - maybe that wouldn't be the case after all.After Mountain Pointe jumped on the scoreboard first thanks to a 76-yard Dillan Johnson touchdown run, it was visiting Brophy that answered quickly - and with authority - to eventually down the Pride 31-14 Friday night.
Just 43 seconds after Johnson's score, the Broncos turned it around and put six on the board themselves when quarterback Tyler Bruggman hit receiver Frederick Gammage for a 27-yard touchdown pass.
Mountain Pointe (2-4) head coach Norris Vaughan admitted that the momentum gained by that first score likely dissipated a bit once Brophy (6-0) brought the game back square.
"Maybe a little bit, because we're so young and inexperienced," he said.
Johnson was more definitive about the effect that shift might have had on the Pride.
"It totally just knocks the wind out of us," said the senior running back, who ran for 216 yards on 21 carries, but failed to find the endzone again after that first quarter score. "For our team, it's hard to come back from that. We needed to keep the momentum against a defense like that and we couldn't do it."
If momentum were a truly tangible thing, Brophy certainly had it after that point, scoring three more touchdowns over the next 13 minutes of game action, before sending the game into the half after a late second-quarter field goal.
"This is our third time this year in that situation, where the opposing team scored first," Brophy head coach Scooter Molander said, "and I'm proud of the way our team has responded every time."
D'Amani Grayer scored Brophy's second touchdown, this one from 3-yards out, before that Bruggman-to-Gammage combo would hit paydirt twice more, scores of 3 and 22 yards, respectively.
Mountain Pointe's Johnson - a quarterback in name only for the Pride's first few outings, taking the snaps in a run-heavy attack before switching back to his more natural tailback spot - said that the Pride tried to open up the passing game as best it could. Quarterback Caleb Buck tried most of the night to find big-play receiver Jalen Brown, but time and again the duo couldn't make it happen. Buck struggled, completing just 3-of-12 passes for 31 yards.
Brophy, on the other hand, succeeded mightily in advancing the ball through the air and on the ground. While Mountain Pointe finished with 271 yards rushing - compared to the Broncos' 221 as a team - the real disparity came in the passing game, with Bruggman outpacing Buck more than 5-to-1.
Bruggman completed only 9 of 20 pass attempts, but managed 154 yards and those three touchdowns to Gammage. Grayer did the dirty work on the ground for the Broncos, racing to 143 yards on 14 carries in the first half before finishing with 176 on 23 attempts.
"Any time you're able to balance it out, you're going to be better off," Bruggman said. "But to get that momentum back in the beginning, that was the biggest thing."
In addition to the four touchdowns, Brophy's scoring rounded out on a 23-yard field goal by Zach Hudson inside two minutes to go in the first half. The Broncos wouldn't score again, but the damage was already done. Mountain Pointe's second touchdown came on an 8-yard run by Garette Craig just outside one minute to play in the game.
