Your Thumper sounds like a wonderful and NOBLE dog. I am so happy that you and he shared such a beautiful bond-what you wrote is so amazing!
I am sure that my Snobear and Smooch (Samoyed and a Golden Ret. who went to the Bridge last year) are romping and playig with Thumper as we speak!
I am so glad you got to be there when he died-my Husband, Ken and I, are so very grateful that God has allowed us to be there at the end with all of our dogs-I know we will all see them again.

How true what you said: "pups remind us that if we have someone to love, something to eat, and a bed to sleep in, all is RIGHT with the WORLD!"

Your Thumper still runs with you just in another dimension...he lives in your heart hoping shortly another lucky golden shall be blessed to share your home
And if I go,
while you're still here...
Know that I live on,
vibrating to a different measure
--behind a thin veil you cannot see through.
You will not see me,
so you must have faith.
I wait for the time when we can soar together again,
--both aware of each other.
Until then, live your life to its fullest.
And when you need me,
Just whisper my name in your heart,
...I will be there.

Cheers Heather & The Arcane Golden Crew...

I'm so sad for you. I always cry at the beautiful love that they have for us and how deeply we miss it. Thumper was Noble, truly the gift of life.

So sorry for your loss of Thumper - sounds like you were both blessed in the short time you had together.

Run free at the bridge Thumper

I miss the plaintive pleading wail,
I miss the wistful loving glance,
I miss the circling welcome dance"
