Thumper (More)

Many thanks to Robina Rutherford for sending in this bio of Thumper, Chet’s June Friend of the Month. Thumper will be the profile pic on the FB page and Robina, human companion, gets a signed copy of Bark To The Future, the latest Chet and Bernie novel. Next month this could be you! Just send in a pic to the FB page. The random # generator does the rest.
“Thumper came to live with us in the winter of 2017. My niece believed we needed a dog and found this tiny corgi that needed a home; after all, if a corgi was good enough for a Queen, he was good enough for us. Over the next 6 years, Thump would become one of our pack. He’d sit with us, walk with us – until he did his business, that signaled the end of the walk – and herd us to where we should be with a gentle boop of his nose on our ankle. His favorite things to do involve snow in the winter and treats in all other seasons. When my dad passed in late 2021, Thump became the emotional support and therapy pupper he was meant to be. He was never far from my mom’s side, rather her feet. Every sneeze or cough was thoroughly investigated to make sure she was well. At the end of his caretaking day, Thumpers favorite place to be is relaxing on the couch next to me waiting for that last crumb to drop.”

    Sounds like Thumper and his humans are the perfect match!

    RIO! Sorry to hear about the tomatoes, but good for your Friend joining the Y!

    Good afternoon to all!

    Thumper sounds like a most agreeable companion and reliable therapy dog. All dogs are therapy dogs, most are just freelancing.

    Glad you both found each other and he is living his best life.

    Worms!…We’ve been looking for tomato worms…grunt!…A clothes pin works very nicely to get them off and fling them into the middle of the street…snort!…But we here do not see any bugs during the day. We think they are night creatures…wiffle!…Today the tomato plants are looking better if still a little curled…groan!

    Wondering! ….If I sent some photoz to Wookies Paw. He is a tomato expert. Maybe he could tell us what to do to save the crop…wheeze!

    Riõ: See if any of these causes might apply to your tomatoes:
