Dennis I'm so sorry for your loss too. Your so right... it is comforting to share your sorrows with our large mutant family and receive such an abundance of compassion and understanding. Know that our prayers go out to your friends family as well as you guys.

Thanks again to our mutant family at large. You are so very special to us!

Wayne we had intended to call you and Earlene and come down for a visit when Things here changed but maybe after we get Pat settled after the funeral we can still head that way for a few days. I will call you before and check in.

Possum I did as you asked and asked God to look over him. Sorry for your loss.

[QUOTE=Wayne M;2541775]I want to park next to you for as long as it takes for you to please Earlene with a new floor. Hee hee!

Any time my brother anytime. But it is a lot of work.

Ok I would like to thank y'all for the kind words about the floor. And tell y'all if we ever meet up and your rig or car or even boat needs fixing let me know I work for tips only I will not ask for a dime. If you like it and want to give I will not turn it down. But if you just shake my hand and say thanks that work just fine for me too.. hope to see y'all soon.

Unhappy THOR is gone.

This morning, May 5th, 2015 at about 1:45 am our rainbow got a little darker. We are devastated by the unbelievable, unforeseen, sudden loss of our lovable ditz. Thor was Sandee's shadow in every sense of the word. He was a goof ball and noisy if he thought he wasn't getting enough attention. He was our foot warmer at night and couldn't sleep if he wasn't in our bed.

We always thought that Thor would be here to help us deal with our grief when Gunny would need to be let go. Now we know that we will be facing that loss without Thor. For those who don't know Gunny is our older GSD who is suffering from Degenerative Myelopathy (Dog version of ALS) and may not be with us for very long.

Without knowing it, I took him for his last walk around the lake at noon. He seemed fine but later discovered he had thrown up all his breakfast in a corner of the coach. He later started being a bit lethargic and refused to eat dinner and then threw up all the water he had drank. later that evening he appeared to have a seizure and we rushed him to the U of IL Vet Med Emergency room. We thought he was doing better after IVs and then suddenly he took a turn for the worse and we had to let him go. I had left for a little while to go back home to take care of Gunny and Sandee was left to make that horrible choice to have them stop resuscitation.

Thor's food bowl sits there with the food he didn't eat. The red collar he wore nearly all his life is now hanging on the peg his leash was hanging from. Gunny is quiet and I wonder how he will take this after his "brother" isn't here to keep him company. There is now an empty dog crate begging to be occupied.

There is a hole in our hearts and tears in our eyes. Oh God, how much I would give to have this yapping, ditzy kid back. Because, even if he wasn't a arch-type GSD that was strong willed, always alert and confident...he was a lovable fur kid that one minute could drive you crazy and the next make you smile.

I'm gonna miss you Thor. Now that you have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge, go find Major, Angel and Sarge. Also...keep an eye open for Gunny.

Cheers to you my friends ...

Nifty words, Jeff.
My heart goes out to you, Herb and Barb. Please be well.

Don and Sandee, I see Thor and Gunny in my memory from last year as joyful and vivacious. I will hold on to that.
When you had them out for a stroll, your eyes shined the love and pride from deep in your hearts.
