Running. Ever since he went blind he wants to chase cars.
When he has to go in a kennel that is not his.
He can dance. Not on his back legs, but more of a prance...like a horse.
Thunder got Glaucoma and had to have both of his eyes removed. After the 1st one went, I had decided that if his other one goes, we will put him down. I figured it wasn't fair to have a blind farm-dog.
Within a month, my worst fear was realized, and he was going blind in the other eye. One day, he didn't want to come out of the kennel. I could tell that he couldn't see me, and he was quite scared and confused. The next day, he came out, and was sniffing around. I made the call to the vet, and we were going to go in the next week.
The most amazing thing happened. Even though he was still a little confused, Thunder started running around the farm. Full speed!!! He was following the other dogs, chasing the cats, and still dancing. He even tried fetching the ball with the other dogs. I realized that he wasn't mourning the loss of his sight.
I'm still inspired every day by this guy. He is truly an example of what we all should be like. He took a couple days, and then moved on with what he had. He is not sad, and he certainly doesn't want any pity. He just wants to catch a cat.
All right... who moved the car.

It is with many tears and full body sobs that I inform everyone that Thunder had a seizure last night and has passed away.
A big part of my farm is not going to be as fun anymore.
