Robert Scott worked for America Online for nearly a quarter-century both in-house and as a consultant, and he continues to work for the company as a consultant from his home in Southwest Florida
During that time he's worn many "hats," from "guiding" members through the use of the service; hosting live online events with luminaries such as authors Tom Clancy and the late Timothy Leary; actors Don DeFore, Tony Dow and scores more; to developing, writing and hosting online game shows. Currently he provides "troubleshooting services" for users.
Among his hobbies he lists daily bike rides, often logging 20 or more miles, swimming, people-watching, gardening and maintaining his home near the Gulf of Mexico, and his loving fox terrier, Foxy Lady III, up to her death on October 12, 2010.
"RJ," as he's known online, is a true pet lover. In the past 41 years he's had 7 dogs. All of them eventually had to be "put down," undoubtedly the most heartbreaking decision a pet owner will ever need to face.
Thus the basis for his story: It's a combination of fiction, mixed with fact, based on experiences with "the ladies in my life," Kim, Tammy, Heidi, Heidi II, Lady I, Lady II and most recently and primarily Lady III.
Bound to appeal to pet lovers everywhere, the story is happy, sad and tragic, yet ends with an uplifting experience that pet lovers everywhere are certain to love.
