The Thud was loyal, protective, and most importantly, sensitive. He was great with kids and people. He was the smartest dog I have ever had, and he knew what kind of mood I was in and would act accordingly. I was a better man with him as my dog. Thud and I were together before I got married and had a family. He accepted and loved my family from the start. He won my wife's heart over and became very loyal to her. I ache all over not having you around. I was glad I gave you a good home and I know one day we will meet again. Take care old friend. Remember that I am always thinking of you and the how happy you made us when you were here. I think of you often and what went on during the years we spent together. I hope you are happy and that their is truly a place like rainbow bridge where you are in no pain, young at heart and able to chase down tennis balls with the determination of when you were three years old. A year has past and we still miss and think of you. I am thinking of you today cuz this was the day you died. It has been two years since you died and I wanted to tell you I am thinking of you. Christie has taken your spot in bed with me so I don't get lonely. I thought you would like to know that. I miss the strength you gave me. Do me a favor and look for Fritzie he is going to be looking for you and Dutch. I know it will make Ron feel better knowing your looking out for the Fritz.|
It has been 6 years since you left and I think of you often. I just wanted to write to you and tell you I miss you and I feel very lucky to have had you for the time we had. It has now been 8 years since you left, i still think about you and so does mommy. We have had two other dogs since you left, spud who died at 3 years old he had a brain tumor. you would of liked him. We now have opie who is a year old and he reminds me alot of you. He is chewing everything in the house like you did when you were that age, but he is really sensitive and has a great heart, and he is very affectionate like you are also.
Love, Daddy, mommy, zachary, elizabeth, winnie and christie
