Goodbye To A Big Friend

Yesterday afternoon we heard that our friend Thor had crossed the Rainbow Bridge. We never met Thor in person, but thru the blogs we felt as if we'd known him forever.
 Thor was a very large doggy, but he was such a sweet gentle fellow that he had many small friends. He had his little human friends
And he had other small friends that he watched over.

 Thor also had his favorite toy, Larry the Lobster, who finally gave out and was replaced later with a new blue lobster.
We could always depend on Thor to join us in our Bandana Day celebrations and we looked forward to reading his Thorsday posts each week. Thor was ten years old, a long life for a Mastiff, when he left us and we will miss him.
Rest in peace, old friend, and give our love to all our other family and friends at the bridge.

What a nice tribute to Thor, Sue! We love the gentleness he showed to play with Kittens and guinea pigs.
Made us think of Remington!

Cheers and hugs,

Stella, Jo and Zkhat

Thank you for your tribute. I'm sure Thor heard your pack howling for him last night and knew they were friends.

We didn't know Thor either, other than all the wonderful things Mango always had to say about him. We sent some good thoughts to his family. Thor must have had quite the welcoming at the bridge.

I am crying all over again seeing those beautiful pictures of Thor. He was such a big part of the family in so many ways.

I did not know Thor, but you did a wonderful job on letting us know what he was like. I am sure he is with all friends across the bridge, a place I recently got to know about when one of our much loved dogs Kyrie recently went there. It is very sad when someone like them has to leave you as they are so much a part of your family. Sue x
