8/52 {Scooby Doo} Catholic Guilt Redefined

8/52 {Scooby Doo} Catholic Guilt Redefined

Scooby is my trusty defender, my champion, my secret weapon in a dark alley. But it wasn’t always that way. Scooby Doo was the worst puppy in the world – reminded me of the dog Marley.

He was a very destructive puppy full of wandering teeth, razor sharp nails, flapping paws, and full speed take downs. He made me bleed and cry on a daily basis for about a year…terrible terrible puppy. I remember the day when I yelled my usual “OUCH!!!!” but something clicked for him. He developed his famous catholic guilt on that very day by connecting his actions to my being hurt. I was so proud and relieved. It was a short leap from bad dog without conscience…to bad dog with guilty conscience…to don’t do bad things and you avoid the guilt and wagging finger of shame…and finally to being proactive about good decision making. Brilliant.

Today at 9 years old, the Blood Sport days are behind us. He avoids feeling guilty by doing the right thing from the get-go. He actively protects me when danger lurks. He looks forward to solving mysteries with Shaggy and the Gang (aka locating SQUIRRELS!). And he chews with purpose and gusto on items from the “approved” list found in his toy box.
