scoutcloseupScout the dog, columnist with Cape Cod Wave, passed away this week after a short illness and a long life.

Besides her literary pursuits, Scout first came into the public eye starring as the dog, Sandy, in the Falmouth Theater Guild production of “Annie.” Critics noted how she really inhabited the role, making you believe that she was a dog.

Scout was a well-rounded individual and also an entrepreneur, doing business daily.

Scout loved long walks, sleep, and chicken – especially chicken.

Scout is survived by her family, Laura M. Reckford and Brian Tarcy.

Scout will be deeply missed.

  • Laura and Brian, my heart breaks to learn of Scout’s passing. Though she enjoyed a long and happy life, Scout was ageless. A wonderful actor in Annie and champion squeaky toy evaluator, Scout kindly welcomed both of my ex-racers to the neighborhood in her wise, aloof ways. She loved walks with Laura and frequently stopped by my house on Friday nights to test a few toys (and meals) as her Mom and I shared our recaps over wine. She brightened every child’s day and mine. Thank you for those memories, sweet Scout.

  • Laura,
    I am saddened to hear of (Girl) Scout’s passing. She always brightened the day when she would visit for a romp around the office. Sending big hugs (me) and sloppy kisses (Gertie) your way.

  • i WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO SCOUT AS A HIGH-FLYING, CIRCUS DOG , WHICH SHE WAS. SHE CONSISTENTLY MADE AN IMPRESSION. SHE WILL BE MISSED BY MANY, FOR HER JOURNALISM OF COURSE BUT FOR MUCH MORE. DAVID AND FAMILY
