Tribute to the Thundering Herd

 One of best things about blogging is getting to "know" the bloggers and their dogs.  You become attached and invested in both, but we all know it's about the dogs.  All these years, one has always stood out.

Hubby, Mark was hounding me to blog about the dogs, so I finally started investigating different dog blogs.  I looked at several blogs and couldn't really find one that interested me. That is until I stumbled upon The Thundering Herdand I was hook.  

It was everything I thought a dog blog should be and then some.  It gave me the inspiration I was searching for in a dog blog.  And best of all they had SIX Huskies, just like us.  All the more reason to try my hand at blogging.  

We went through all the ups and downs with The Thundering Herd and their crazy antics.  Most post were humorous in nature, but there was always that one sad one that we could all relate to....the loss of a dog.  

Which brings me to today, while the original Herd members are all gone, they have four dogs that are part of the new Herd.  Sadly, they recently lost one of the four,  Typhoon, the Little Prince.  And I find myself mourning their loss and mine.  See, they are more than just dogs on a computer screen, the dog's lives were painted alive right in my home as shown through D.K.Wall's eyes.  We could've been neighbors it felt that close.  

So give your dog a hug for five seconds longer and those belly rubs he's begging for today..  Share a few extra treats.  Take walk you've been saving for a special day.  Tell them how much you love them.  And if you know The Thundering Herd, share some love with them too..

I feel the same way you do. What was even harder about the Thundering Herd is he went to virtually no posts (I do not do facebook) and so there was just this. And because the others are aging I fear he will just be posting when the dogs pass. I mourned when I read your stories as I do his and am glad you could put it into words so beautiful. Thanks.

Yes, it was hard missing his post on a regular basis, but I understand.

Thank you for reading and your kind words.

God bless.
