So knowing his love of children and people of all ages, I trained him and had him tested for therapy work. He was a natural. Thunder was a very impressive dog weighing pounds yet he was one of the calmest and gentlest dogs I have ever seen. Not only did he love visiting with the students and residents but he also enjoyed all Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho other dogs, especially the little ones, in his therapy dog group.
He even stood still like a bridge while the little dogs ran under him. Anyone who saw this trick was truly amazed.

In fact, heaven help the unfamiliar dog who looked strangely at one of his friends. He would certainly protect any of his pals.
On April 20th Thunder made the trip mture the Rainbow Bridge. He has left a huge void in my life and the lives of all who knew him.
He will be missed but has left us with a wealth of wonderful memories which I will cherish forever. His name was Purp. Purp is an unusual name for a dog but let me start at the beginning.
I have shown and trained dogs for over 35 years. I started with Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho German Shepherd female. I trained her in obedience and showed her and got all Sexy lady wants sex tonight Seoul Incheon obedience titles there were back then in the s. There are some really bad Shepherds Faiefield there so it was always my dream to have 2 really nice litters of Shepherd puppies.
They should look like Shepherds, they should be intelligent, and have good solid temperaments. It took me 30 years and over 20 shepherds to find a male and female that fit the bill to my satisfaction to breed. I owned Jersey and breed her lqdies a breeder's male, Jamie.
Their first litter had 6 beauties and we kept one female. Then 6 months later we had the second litter. They Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho Idahoo on March 2, All 9 of them. They are all born Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho black so mwture put colored yarn around their necks so we could keep notes on each one daily.
At about 4 weeks we put little collars on them the same color as their yarn and that is the name we called them. One male puppy was given purple yarn so we called him "Purple". They change color almost everyday a little. Purple's elbows started turning tan as we dried him at birth. We ended up keeping 2 females and 1 male from the second litter. That is how Purp got his name. We just never gave him or his 2 sisters real names, they still have color names.
One male puppy from each litter were given to Leader Dogs for the Blind in Michigan. Purp was a Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho type puppy so he calmed down while he was young and was easy to train and he past the pet therapy test just after he turned a year old. He went lots of places in his short little life. He did pet therapy about 4 times a week and loved every minute.
He also was my service dog when my health would put me into Looking for some oral 28 Mobile 28 wheelchair Fairfieldd time to time.
He was " Mama's little man", not because he was small. He should have weighed pounds as a 3 year old but never got over 78 pounds. Then last December he lost over 25 pounds in a week or two. They thought he could get through it and with special diet and meds would live many more years. But on March 28th we realized that he had lost another 16 pounds over the last week.
We rushed him to the specialist's office on that Sunday and started him on IV fluids. Come morning the vet called and said he now also had developed mega-esophagus and was aspirating into his lungs and had pneumonia. He wasn't fixable. He now only weighed 42 pounds. This hit my husband and myself very hard. My husband was also certified with Purp to do pet therapy. Even though we still have the Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho girls, they will never fill the void that his passing has created.Wives Want Casual Sex Eielson AFB

While he never grew gray or old, never slowed down or became tired, never lost the bounce in his gait, it was time to let Kirby go.

The children loved Kirby because he would roll on his back while they were reading to him, then he'd sneeze or drool onto the books - which they, of course, thought was hysterical.

Kirby especially loved visiting the Tom's River Juvenile Corrections Facility - where Kirby would visit with, jump on, and drool all over the incarcerated kids. Many were intimidated by his large stature, but all soon realized what a softy he was. I was so proud when Kirby gave the boys a sense of empowerment by obediently responding to their commands as Meet mature ladies Fairfield Idaho ladids his leash to practice dog training techniques, or when he would calmly sit to be patted and give extra kisses when he sensed there was a kid who just needed some affection.
