Arrival Story: Thunder was born into a home where the family didn't have money to take care of him or his siblings. We found out that the family was giving away the pups and we went to look at them. Thunder was instantly attracted to my husband and contentedly sat at his feet while we looked them all over. We decided that he had chosen us...so we took him home. Upon arrival at home, we discovered he was covered in fleas and had not had any shots by the age of 15 weeks. We bathed him thoroughly and crossed our fingers the next day when we took him to the vet. He was ok, thankfully, and was given the shots he needed. He has been our protector for almost 10 years now and he has the most soulful eyes. He knew we had saved him so now he protects us.
Bio: On May 23rd, Thunder was running around the yard as usual and then my husband noticed him not in sight and he looked around and say him laying in the pine straw at the edge of the woods in our yard. He was already gone. We think it had to be his heart as it looked as if he just...stopped...
He will be greatly missed!
Forums Motto: I am on Bridge patrol...it's what I do!
I don't know how to begin...today, I was running in the yard, chasing my beloved UPS truck along the inside of the fence and then suddenly, I was being taken by the paw by my sisfur's boyfurriend, Dante. He came and took me flying through the air and I could see my daddy looking at me and he came over and touched my earth body but I was already headed somewhere else. Suddenly, I saw my sisfur Suzette, my brofurs...Garth, Bear and Joe! I also saw a wonderful rainbow and a big bridge. There were doggies and kitties playing in the grass and having so much fun! I felt weird though...where were my mommy and daddy and my brofurs Harley and Buster? My earth body had just run out of life... I wanted to run back to them but Suzette told me that I wouldn't be able to run on earth any more...I was now a bridge doggie and that I had very important work to do...I had to be a guardian to my family on earth as I had been before I came. I always patrolled our yard and now, I would be able to fly there whenever I wanted and never be old or sick or suffer again. I really hadn't ever been any of those things, but I knew that Suzette and Garth had been and that they were much happier at the bridge. I feel so confused but I know that over time, I will get used to the new place and I know that one day, I will be waiting for my mommy and daddy and will hear them approach and will run to them and lead them to Heaven. I still have a very important job to do and I intend to do a good job at it.

Just a quick update...I am doing much better now...still on antibiotics but my face is back to normal size and the hair is growing back! The vet...Dr. Barkman thinks it might have been a copperhead...a small one but still a bad one. He thinks I was very lucky and that my mommy & daddy acted fast and that helped me alot!
I am feeling better and being really cautious around the yard. Mommy found a dead snake last weekend...but I am not confessing to anything...I think it just died of natural causes (that could be me...bol)
Thanks for all the prayers and get well wishes from my pals!
